Introduction Nearly everyone dreams of moving to the country at some point, but few people are crazy enough to actually do it. I'm one of those few. The short version: I'm a former cultured California chick happily turned manure mucking Missouri farmgirl. In 1994 I moved sight unseen to the middle of nowhere and have almost never looked back. The extended version can be found on my About Page:
