Today is my birthday and I couldn’t think of a better day to post this video. I lost 100lbs in 1 year. Watch this video to see how and why I decided to make a change. I hope this inspires you to change if you struggle with your weight as well. Viva Las Vegas!!!

See you on the ridge!!!!

Blackberry Ridge Intro –
Personal Intro –

Multi-Family homesteading may not be for everyone and you obviously need to have land that allows for it, but beyond the obvious, what is sharing land with others really like? Is it like a commune? How do you make decisions and decide who pays for what? In this video, we attempt to answer these questions and more in a real, but light-hearted way.

Welcome to our channel and thank you for taking the time to watch our vlog. We are a family of 8 living in a 500 sq. ft. off grid home on 20 acres in the Ozarks. We are endeavoring to put in “1000’s of roots” on our land through permaculture design principles. We try to upload videos Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Please leave any thoughts or questions you may have in the comments below. We would love to connect with you! And be sure to subscribe and share us with others who may be interested in our videos.

Thanks again for watching,
Kip, Carrie, and Children
