Adding toys and equipment

Added a storage trailer and Rhino UTV

Now that we had the RV trailer in place, it was time to start adding toys and equipment. Over the course of the next year, we added a generator, covered equipment trailer, a Yamaha Rhino UTV, a snowmobile, a backhoe, a dump trailer, some kayaks and  a 20' cargo container. Additionally, we started planning our move from TX. We took the first trailer load of equipment including a tractor with a front end loader, box blade and mower on a 20' trailer, 1800 miles from Houston, TX.   The move north took a total of three trips.

Moved equipment from TX to property

From the beginning, we knew this process of moving to Idaho and building our Off Grid cabin would take a long time. We wanted to make sure we also took every opportunity to explore and get to know the area around our new home and enjoy the outdoors.  With each trip up to the property, we combined work with play, explored the area such as hiking the Scotchman's Peak trail, one of the best hikes in Idaho, Kayaked in lake Pend O'reille, and explored USFS roads and trails, picked huckleberries, snowshoes and snowmobiled in the winter.
