NOTE:

THIS BLOG IS STILL BEING SETUP.  IT IS CURRENTLY IN CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER, BUT ONCE I HAVE FINISHED SETTING IT UP, SUCH AS ADDING MY DAD’S “WHEN I WAS A KID” BLOG AND MY “30 DAYS LIVING OFF THE LAND” BLOG, I WILL CHANGE TO THE NORMAL MOST RECENT POST FIRST.  PLEASE STOP BACK OFTEN.

Welcome to Pithole Paradise

On these pages I, the Pithole Hermit, will document my adventures in developing a 3 acre lot near Pithole Pennsylvania.  I just completed purchase of the land today.  It is mostly wooded with a small clearing.  A 12 x 16 shed is already on the property and I plan on converting this to a cabin.  There is a 100 foot well with an electric pump, but not electricity to the site.  No sewage or other utilities.  I am starting with a 3500W generator, which I will set up tomorrow.  That is all for now.  Here are a few pictures of the site.

Day 2

Well, my plan to setup the generator was put on hold. After opening the box I found a motor mount was broken.  So now I have to return it and get another.  But I did do a short walk-through video of the property.

Day 2 – update

Contacted the generator manufacturer All Power America, and they are shipping the part. Plus, the company selling it is refunding $100. Will soon be up and running.

Tenting

Hey you kids, get off my land!  Just kidding.  I’m an old hermit but not yet a grouchy old hermit.  But I am well armed and former military so it is best not to sneak up on me.
