Green Mountain Family Campground Review
If you are looking for a quiet, rustic campground in Vermont that's open in winter, I highly recommend Green Mountain Family Campground!
With so much to do before we leave Vermont for winter, will we get everything done in time? It's been busy, but we decided to relax this Thanksgiving.
Milling 2x4s on our Sawmill
We used our Woodland Mills HM126 sawmill to cut over over a hundred 2x4s that we'll use to frame our portable solar kiln.
Storing 100TB in an RV
This week we picked up another 14TB Easystore drive in the sales, bringing our total to over 100TB of data storage in the RV - here's how we do it!
Milling Pine, First Snow & New Tools
We're in a race against time to mill the pine logs for our solar kiln and get them stacked and stickered before we leave Vermont for winter.
Solar Kiln BuildPart 1: Floor Assembly
Find our why we decided to build a solar kiln to dry green, rough sawn lumber, and how we built a crazy strong floor assembly for our portable solar kiln.
Milling our First Log & Building Saw Horses
After assembling our brand new Woodland Mills HM126 Woodlander XL sawmill, we couldn't wait to mill our first log to make stickers, cants and saw horses!
Assembling the Woodland Mills HM126 XL Sawmill
After waiting more than 3 months, our Woodland Mills saw mill finally arrived! It took us about 2 days to get it assembled, but now we're ready to start milling!
We've completed our move to Vermont, bought a new vehicle, cut more firewood than we know what to do with, and received a very exciting delivery!
We turned the trees cleared from our driveway construction into enough firewood for a LOT of campfires using a chainsaw, homemade sawbuck and hydraulic log splitter.
Buying a Used Equipment Trailer
Less than 48 hours after seeing a For Sale sign at the side of the road, we had bought a 20ft equipment trailer!

Having great neighbors is really important to us, and our new neighbors threw us an amazing welcome party as we spent our first weekend in the RV on our own land.
A Weekend in Portland, Maine
We took an impromptu weekend vacation to Portland, ME in late September 2021 and fell in love with its stunning coastline and delicious food.
Renting a Shipping Container
We rented a 40ft high cube shipping container for temporary secure, dry storage for our tools and materials while we build our house, finally freeing up our truck bed!
Cleared for Landing
We're taking an impromptu vacation this weekend but before we do, we had to clear some space for the arrival of a shipping container and our RV next week.
