This place is all about individual liberty and how to pursue, defend and enjoy it. If you believe in personal freedom, then come here from time to time to see what I am writing about or linking to. I will advance big ideas about smaller, more effective, and less intrusive government. I will learn, practice, and write about becoming more self sustaining. I will brew my own beer and wine, tie my own flies, and catch my own trout. I will shoot, dress and cook upland game birds on these pages, collect seeds, plant my garden, and compost my trash. If you check in from time to time, you will learn all about it, my triumphs and setbacks. And all the while I will become more and more independent, and hopefully you will, too. Enjoy!
