    Okay, here are some pics from my walk with my husband yesterday down the dirt road in front of my house, in to the woods and meadows....it begins with leaving my driveway and walking right, going left heads to the main road with the mail box, (Pain in the ass that you can't get your mail delivered to your HOUSE! I guess i am a spoiled suburbia/city type, kind of gal? lol).

    OKAY, I WANT this plot of land in the next picture....it is about a half a mile down the dirt road from my house...the guy who owns the land owns about 200 acres and he would own the land to the left and right of this spot, but i would love him to sell me maybe 20 acres of it.

    I would want the house positioned way back from the dirt road, on the right, where you can see a clearing in the distance with a tall pine, so it looks out on to the small meadow and big, old trees that are there on the left side of the picture....

    Okay, here are some Deer tracks:

    Here is a pair of Deer traveling together, in another spot

    I think this is a Snow Shoe Hare, a rabbit? But I am uncertain on that...?

    And what the heck kind of prints are these? At first I thought that it was a Fawn becaust they were small, but then on a second look, it could be the webbed feet of a Wild Turkey?

    but on a third look, they are probably deer track...

    Okay, the river, technically a brook, that runs right on the other side of the meadow in front of my house, about 50 feet behind the tree line, also crosses this dirt road we are walking on about a mile up from my house....you can see in this next picture the river basin but it looks as thought it is completely frozen over and there is no running river showing....this is to the right of the road, BUT the road has a 10 foot round pipe under it to keep the river flowing, and on the other side of the road, you can see the river is still running a bit above ground, before it goes under the ice to flow.

    Here are the closing pictures, at this point my camera kept fogging up...but the sunset sky was a beauty!

    OH! Here is a pic of the guy's cabin that owns the 200 acres, we passed him on the way for our walk and he stopped and said when we got to his cabin, we were welcomed to go inside and warm ourselves up before the walk back to our cottage.....gees louise, are people nice here or what?

    So we went in side, he had a toasty wood stove still burning down and I put my goves on top of it for a few seconds to warm them up, before the long walk back home!

    My next door neighbor and the guy who owns the cabin, both plow our driveway, FOR FREE.....we don't even call them, they just come and do it since we have moved here...if Ralph (the old man that owns the 200 acres) doesn't do it with his plow, then my next door neighbor who owns 10 acres and has a plow because of his long drive and his ex wife's long drive, who lives about a mile from him...(don't ask me why Dave and she are divorced and live in different houses? They spend all of their time together it seems, with their 2 teen boys? Well, anyway, if Ralph doesn't do it, then Dave does it...

    Pretty keen set up, I might add...

    When we were living in Massachusetts, it cost us $20 bucks a shot for someone to come and plow our shorter driveway and if he had to come out more than once to plow because it was a really big storm, then he would charge us more!

    where did you live? when I lived in Somerville, ?I used the snow blower from a job I had and would clear the snow all around the 'hood...for free, and elsewhere I've lived even as a renter, I'd shovel out my own area. I was brought up that way. Neighbors help each other out. No bs classist "I'm on my own and so are you" shit for me.

    Sweet deal! Whenever we get snow here, it's usually my husband that gets the lucky task. :) But sometimes, one of our neighbors with his snow plow would do it if he's in a good mood. Thankfully, we don't get much snow here in Brooklyn, Ususally it's Long Island that gets the brunt of the snowstorms.
