    well....it looks like everything happens for a reason....I'm living my American dream but not the way I had planned for....The good> I'm off the grid...and living off the land and my wits and have to say for turning 39 (jan 14) Ive never been in as good of shape as I am now except when I got out of boot camp....its still gunna take awhile to get used to not being fat anymore!!!! I've found an abandoned cabin on dudes property and have evicted the birds,mice,rats,and other dwellers...the bugs are not to happy about it...even got bit on the neck by a hobo spider(the are necrotic) that landed me in the er for 4 days thinking my head was gunna rot off....that was 2 months ago and theres still a small lump and scab there...I slipped down a plank I made and broke my arm like a month ago...that only slowed me down a little...I was back to chopping wood within a week !!! I'm building my water collection device this month and a shed/coop for some chickens and a milking goat or too and finishing up my cabin and getting excited about planting my very own garden for the first time !!!! Ive got an idea for electricity...12v car battery into a ac/dc converter that runs a bench grinder motor attached to a old model GM alternator that recharges the batteries ... or get an old bicycle instaed of the bench grinder and slap a belt on the bike to run the alternator ;P anyways I hope my hose falling was a exciting occasion...I had a few treasures there...hope they all found good homes and as for my Stones ...if the got saved...cool...thnx ...if not ...oh well...ill just get more when I return to uo...my life is my uo right now...I think when I return ill mirror my char after myself!!! GM lumberjack/camper/tinker/tamer or something like that b ut that's a ways away as im enjoying living this way...very fulfilling and rewarding/health way to go...I do miss you all and think of you always and I WILL return someday soon...probaly in the fall when my crops come in and I have lots of money ;P

    I believe about everything was saved for you including the spot. I have a bunch of Deco, and odds n ends saved. Good to hear you are doing well. enjoy your yourself and get back when you can.

    yes, LeawynII replaced it after it fell, and added a bunch of the deco that was there. I have some stuff and I think Gilfane got the Stones. other than that I am not sure what ended up where.
