Jessup Family






Quirks





Some interesting things I found while going to and from an assignment. I never thought I would see a school bus used as farm equipment.

Ironic?


Apparently they grow these large, vast, beautiful fields of sunflowers... only to attract doves for hunting season.

New Home, Lead Free












The Jessups invited me to come to their new house that they're building on Sunday in Bowling Green, KY. Their new house has over 5 acres of lead-free land, so their 6 kids can finally play outside without risking their health. If all goes according to plan, the house should be completely self-sustainable. They are right near an amish community and all of their food and most of their needs can be obtained from them, or on their own property. They want to withdraw from commercial society and live off the grid. The dad will hopefully only have to work around 3 or 4 months a year and that should cover their living. They're also flirting with the idea of starting a commune in the future.

A Kind One




He's shocking himself on an electric fence, in case you were wondering. Why? .....Why not?




Went to a music festival out in the boonies in Poseyville on Saturday. It poured rain and was way smaller than expected, but people still had a blast and it just made everything more intimate. I keep meeting the craziest people out here. I love it.
