I have a lot of questions about residing up north now that our wife & I have finally made our move.
- It’s summer time & I’m excited to get outside & go hiking, although I was upset about the wildlife first.
All of us came from the south in a region known for black bears, panthers, wild boar, & alligators, however now every one of us live in a locale that has zero bears & a single single species of rattlesnake. People in the section who I’ve met have all told me to be wary of deer ticks because they can carry lyme disease. I was also shown photos of poison ivy & how to avoid it. Short of that, I didn’t have any crazy wildlife ready to jump out of the bushes love I did back in the south. One time I accidentally came up on a female boar & her offSpringtime. If I hadn’t been downwind, she particularly would have noticed me & started charging. Thankfully, I was lucky that day & left the section unscathed. I’m so thrilled with the woods up north, in area knowing those near-injury encounters with serious wildlife is just not going to happen to me again for as long as every one of us live in this area. However, it’s already starting to get colder as it’s the end of the summer. All of us have a heating system in our house, however I’m curious about the replacement costs of a easy wood stove that every one of us could use as a supplemental heat source in our house. Our lot is numerous acres & the number of dead trees that every one of us can harvest for firewood are plentiful. I hope that every one of us can afford the wood stove replacement because it would help us save on Winter time heating costs by a considerable amount.
