We have decided to leave the rat race and move back to my home state of Oklahoma to build our home and start our homestead. My name is Rusty and my wife is Casandra. We first met when I was working as a travel nurse at a hospital in Maine and I knew she was something special. That was in 2007 and we have been together since. It’s now 13 years and 3 kids later and we feel that living the typical 40+ hour work week, running our kids all over town for sports and activities, and the high cost of the “American Dream” has become overwhelming. I have spent years trying to convince Casandra and have finally succeeded. Now we begin our Journey to this new life. We hope you follow along as we take our first steps in realizing our dreams.
