It's official

We are now dairy property owners again. Keys are in hand. Wish the electric was on so that we could work through the evening. Erik, Wendell and I went to mark and measure some things tonight. The sunset was amazing. We are located in an area known as Rainbow Valley. We can see the Buckeye Hills to the west and the White Tank Mountains are north of us. South are the Maricopa Mountains. And most important, we can still see our "home" mountains as the Sierra Estrellas are to the east.

Next hoop we need to jump through is to have the goats onsite before January 1, 2009 in order to apply for ag exemption! Whew, this is going to be close. If we have no electricity before then--we will fire up the generator. Our mentors, David and Kathryn of Black Mesa Ranch (http://www.blackmesaranch.com/), could teach us something about power!
