Here is the scenario. Take a California Valley Girl to “Green Acres”, and see if she and her friends can do it like their forefathers. Granted, I have had modern luxuries, such as running water and electricity (sometimes, depending upon the weather). Still, even with the modern luxuries, this has been harder than I thought it would be.

Back in the 1860's, you had to homestead for five years in order to own the land. I have a mortgage payment, and I am actually buying the land. However, for the past four years, I have tried to train myself to think like my forefathers had to do. Sometimes, I have cheated and used a lawn mower. I have the old fashion push mower, but I have indeed cheated and used the motorized mower and the weed eater. At least 3/4 of the time, I have done this all old school. Let me tell you something; I can bare witness to the fact that our forefathers were indeed amazing. The ingenuity and handling of hardships just amazes me.
