Compound Update.

We finally completed the move to the northern compound. A little cleaning at the Pulaski bunker (apartment) and we are out of there. Here's my update to my four followers to my blog.
.
Concerning the blog.
Since for the time being we only have dial up it looks like I will no longer post You tubes or video. It takes too long to down load to even watch them so no videos. The customer service rep ( Joey) from CenturyLink told me the nearest DSL line is 37. 000 feet from the compound. That's seven miles away. My gov and congressman spends millions of dollars for libraries that already have high speed internet and people like me are left out in the cold. Nothing like crapping on the people that really need the help. Joey made no promises but I have to commend Centurylink for at least following up on my internet problems. Thank you Joey for the follow through, tell your boss you need a raise for your work.
.
To get some speed out of my computer I had to delete all documents, pictures, downloads and any programs I don't use on my PC. It's still slow but it's better then before. It was our choice to move here and we will just have to live with what we have. Satellite internet was just too expensive right now so unless we win the lottery were stuck with dial up. Since we are deep in the Nicolet that might not even work.
.

Been growing a beard for the last three weeks. I'm 53 going on 54 and never had one in my life. Interesting look. It was fun while it lasted but the shaver comes out next week.
.
It was early morning and seen three deer walk through the land behind the compound. This is truly God's country when it comes to wildlife. Deer, turkeys, blue jays, woodpeckers and even a wolf are truly a sight that made the move well worth it. Can't wait till spring and summer with black bear.
.
We are 90% completed on reinforcing the shelter. We now have the washer and dryer hooked up so I can now have cleaner fatigues.

As Dad 29 would say, "Buy More Ammo", I picked up some but need pick up at least a 1000 more rounds. Need cash and will look at buying over the internet.
.
All terrain armored utility vehicle , will have to wait till summer to purchase. Low on funds.
.
Currently out of work. Because of the move to northern Wisconsin , it was not feasible logistically to keep that job. I do want to thank my old boss (Sue) and all the people I worked with. It was a pleasure that I truly enjoyed. Have had a couple of leads and making the trek to Crivits to scout out employment there. Thought I had one but deal fell through. Thank God Mrs B is keeping us above water. Not worried because of my sales, supervision, management and work ethic, I will find something. Blogging doesn't pay money.
.
To all, have a GREAT week, remember,
.
Success - The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather in a lack of will. Vincent T. Lombardi

If you tell your mind you want something, your mind will get it for you. Remember though, if you tell your mind you want something bad , your mind will get that for you also. Be careful what you ask for. Keep it positive.

1) my God,
2) my wife,
3)my family,
4)job,
5)everything else.

Have a GREAT day.

Have you looked into one of the 3G or 4G cell solutions for internet service ? One family near here built a new house which the cable and telco wouldn't get near. I think they went with the Sprint solution.

Dr, thanks for the info.

I did check Cellcom and they told me I was out of range. I will check the other options.

Thanks again.
Have a GREAT weekend.
