Well, we completed our move from Bakersfield to Meeker on November 1, 2001. Everyone arrived safely and the people, dogs and horses are all fine. We live about 3 miles outside of town on County Road 4, on the mesa overlooking Meeker and the White River Valley. Although we have about 15 acres, most of it is undeveloped. We are working on a plan to fence in several acres near the house for the horses since they are temporarily staying at our neighbors house about a quarter mile away. We share part of a common driveway from the main road, also about a quarter mile away. Deer feed and bed nearby, and show up daily within 50 feet of the house on the meadow. The pics page will give you an idea of what it is like here, and will be updated regularly.
It will take us the next 60 days or so to get completely unpacked and settled in. The house is smaller than our prior place on the Kern River, so many items will go to storage. Hopefully we will be able to build an addition in the spring to give us a bit more room. We also have a barn, fencing and spa on our list of projects. Especially the spa. It gets a bit cold here (see the weather link for current backyard weather from our station).
