Blocked Trail or Free Firewood?

A dead standing tree fell over an access trail last year during a severe and windy storm. The trail has been cleared and carved out again & the tree will be used as firewood :) Tags: tiny house,off-grid,DIY,D.I.Y.,do it yourself,frugal,free,nature,natural,van,landscaping,firewood,trail,damage,storm,tree,wind,ryobi,blue,circular saw,sawzall,battery,18v,one+,vanon

The Trail Day 3 & Water!!! YaY!!!

3rd day of trail carving around brush, trees, and briars. Some areas were so thick with vines and briars I was able to make tunnels. I found there was running water at the side of the property too :) Tags: tiny house,off-grid,DIY,D.I.Y.,do it yourself,frugal,free,nature,natural,landscaping,creek,water,drainage,forest,woods,ryobi,hedge trimmer,one+,battery,18v
