can heaven be far from here?

If you have any doubts that this “pandemic” is strictly a tool to coerce and intimidate you into giving up your rights, you need to watch this review of where this fake virus has led, from a 2 week lockdown to a 2 year destruction of all your rights, including your right to choose not to get the jab. It’s time to remove the masks, and remove those who are creating the demands and intimidation around the world. .

Integrity yeah he did. He started in the country and ended there kinda balanced between the two by them. When out of it as a teen I pulled him away from bad influences that came with city’s and boy did we fight and only a year apart. I mean literally go out there and getting him and fearing no one in the process they could hon F themselves” and some how I lived though it.
He excelled from then and think that’s what drove him out of California when he had kids. He wasn’t gonna raise him in the city. His kids not knowing much about Calif or the relatives they left behind on both sides I told them he did the right thing.

goldielocks @ 13:35….Sounds like your brother and I had “parallel lives”. Cattle, horses, ranches, truck driving, families and wives.

I’m sorry to hear he has passed away, but that is one thing that is inevitable so there’s no sense dwelling on it. My bet is he also had one more thing. Integrity!  Thanks for sharing!

One of my brothers did the same and wore a few different hats along the way.
He managed a big farm in the US 4-500 acres by himself. Busy in the summer growing food fir the cows, chopping cords of wood and preparing for winter and dealing with the winter and weather changes in all seasons including droughts.
Same thing his wife died but he had three young children and as you know running a farm or a ranch with all the cows and work he had to sell the farm.
He used the money he got fir his tractors to learn how to drive trucks in bad weather beyond normal truck driving skills.
He moved the kids to the city until he got another spread with a big pond but no cows and not that big along the way, did that for awhile until he started his own truck bed sale because the truckers needed them. During trucking years is when it seemed to affected his health at those stops at restaurants it’s no one to cook around and adding on a bit of weight. Not the same shape as all the work on the farm. After 08 crash he had to sell his business did other things then got into real estate when housing came back and rest his history but think that change leaving farm although all the work is what caused his untimely death a while back. He knew how to recognize opportunities and wasn’t afraid to take on the challenge or learn the skills to do them.
I worry about his current wife who became a partner in real estate plus the horses at home and when things change he knew how to put in different hats. But she seems to be holding her own pretty good with a bit of help from neighbors here and there.

RNO, I’ve learned everything happens for a reason. Believe it or not, I was born in Oklahoma and I always associated that with what gave me my drive to succeed, or die trying.

My whole life has been Silverngold….. not handed to me but earning every penny through my own efforts and desire to win. What I mentioned about the ranch was only part of that story. for some reason I don’t understand I can’t quit trying….but having just turned 80 I am seriously thinking about it. LOL!!!


Goldielocks, Ipso, and Pict….Thank you for your response

Finding this layout of a portion of my old ranch was/is quite a surprise since I did not know these aerial photos even existed…. and I was looking for something else when they came up in an internet search.  These must be Drone footage taken in more recent years. Just to clarify, the buildings shown in these photos were not mine and have been built since I sold the ranch…. and my old ranch headquarters is not shown and is on another more sheltered part of the ranch not included in this sale or these photo’s. Everything else is the same as when I sold the whole ranch to a German millionaire in 1995.  I realize this is off topic so if anyone is curious about or has more questions they are welcome to contact me at WildWoodWolf@protonmail.com for more details…. and welcome to 2022 everyone. IMO this is our year for PM’s as I have posted several times in the past.

My 72 degrees turned into 27 and raining!

Nice place. Lots of honest work to make that happen. It must have been tough to leave.

Wow; SNG, what a beautiful spread, right in the middle of Gods country. Thanks for sharing and a Happy New Year to everyone here.

What a beautiful place! I’m sure you miss it.

Must have been an enormous amount of work to make it as is.

Blowdown along the Animas

That is beautiful in British Columbia.
You do know your ranching. I do hope these skills continue to be passed down and not lost to industrial farming although people like you doing it by yourself at a larger scale is even more rare.
With things the way they are more and more young people are going off the grid and learning from each other as they go. Just not on that scale and not ranching.
Their skills with building, working the land, protecting their small live stock like chickens, ducks or a few bigger livestock from predators, the lay of the land “ like pictures of plants asking what it is or animal tracks, power off grid, is in process but their learning.
The fireworks are starting a hour early. Happy New Year.

Goldielocks and anybody else that might be interested. The site below shows a small portion of the ranch I built from a piece of mostly flooded bush in the Hazeltons of BC Canada beginning back in 1977 and ending when my wife was killed in 1994

I see they now call this 452 acre piece of it Moose Meadow Ranch. When I owned it I called it Wildwood Ranch  and had a total of  1750 deeded acres, another 1000 acre woodlot from which I logged 100 logging truck loads of logs each winter, and I also had 30,000 acres of Government summer range for my cattle.  There are 74 pictures they present here that cover some of the rest of the old ranch too, and I ditched, drained, cleared, and cultivated all that is shown….and a lot more that is not shown besides FWIW! Best wishes to all for the New Year From Silverngold!
