About Us


Surviving the Mountain

We have arrived!!!!   In the summer of 2015 my husband, two of our children (we have three adult children as well), and I sold our house, paid off all our bills, bought an RV and moved to the White Mountains of Northern Arizona.

Shortly after arriving a wise man gave us some advice.  One of the things he said was, “If the mountain doesn’t get you in the first year, you will be alright.”

Well mountain, challenge accepted.  And here is how we survive.

Our family moved to the mountain with the goal of being self sufficient, but the main focus was to create a homestead where my sisters and I could retire and be near each other if we ever had need for assistance.

Sometimes our mountain is a solid physical one, but sometimes the mountain is a mental one. We are glad you came here to join us on this journey as we face this mountain together.
