In another post you wrote that people turn to gold during times of
economic hyperinflation. You really should qualify that with 'Wealthy
people" because the poor don't have any money to invest.
I know you know that. I'm excited about how your life is changing with
the desert gardening and meeting that man. I can't wait until you start
harvesting and reaping the benefit of your work. I'm also glad that
your Dad seems to be getting on board with you. It is always easier
with family support.
The most supportive person in my family was my stepfather's father, a
man who grew up on a south Georgia farm and lived that lifestyle his
entire life. Before he died, I worked on my stepfather's genealogy, and
as it turned out, some of his ancestors(just a few generations back)
came from Alabama, sure, but before that, they lived not 2 miles from
where I live now, and in fact his ancestors founded the little church on
my road and there are two nearby roads named for that family. Once I
made this ironic discovery, and that was about the time that the
homestead really bumped into high gear, the rest of the family sort of
came onboard and saw the logic of getting back to basics on lifestyle.
I think, once they knew I was committed and serious, they accepted that.
