Bound: (adjective) tied, in bonds.
Mountain Bound: Tied to the mountains in spirit.
Why have we started this journey? In part, because we feel drawn to it; tied to it. We knew we wanted to live somewhere we could start this new life we are building but we had the whole country (whole world) to consider. It didn’t take us long to settle on the mountains of Western North Carolina, for so many reasons. For several years we would visit and explore and every time we have to leave to come back “home” to Florida we don’t want to. And not just because we don’t want our vacation to be over. But because the mountains really feel like our home. We feel at peace here. First, we rooted our heartstrings in these mountains and now we put down our real roots.
So, what will Mountain Bound be about? It will be about our journey. It will be about all the new things we learn. It will be about building a homestead, raising our own food, self-sufficiency, and anything and everything that is related to this journey. This may include tutorials for projects, recipes, stories about our experiences, and anything else we think people might be interested in seeing or being a part of. There is SO much to learn and do and I am so excited to be able to share it with you.
By now you have likely figured out why I chose the name Mountain Bound… Because we are Mountain Bound, in just about every way it can be meant. I hope you will join us on our journey!
