LibreLeaf Acres, Kolomona’s Next Chapter

Here begins next chapter in my pursuit towards more liberty in my life. If you haven’t read the first chapter I recommend you check out where I document my Journey from Washington State to Fiddletown CA.
A lot has happened since my last post on Libresults. After Amador county started harassing me about living on my own land I decided that it wasn’t a good idea to post about it. I’ve been kind of laying low so to speak.

I will give a very brief overview of what has happened since my last post. Maybe someday in the future I’ll fill in the gaps.

In October of 2022, I received a bit of inheritance from my Grandparents on my father’s side. It wasn’t enough to live on for the rest of my life, but it was enough that I had some major life changing decisions to make. I could stay in CA and build a tiny home. If I did that it would consume every penny and I would still have a mortgage, plus I’d be in Amador county CA where liberty would be difficult at best. I could sell the property in CA and look across the country for as place that I could buy outright and have no mortgage at all. I chose the latter. It still consumed nearly every penny but I think I made the better decison.

I found a beautiful 11 acre property in Ozark county 5 miles North of Bull Shoals Lake. I flew down to look at it and fell in love with the place.

The property has a small 1 room log cabin that was built in the 70’s with a kitchen, bathroom and store room additions that were built later. It has power ๐Ÿ™‚. After living off grid for a year having power is super awesome. It has a well but no septic ๐Ÿ™ There are pits for grey water. Luckily there are no building codes here whatsoever so putting in a septic should be pretty straight forward.

The cabin, large, metal shed. The property came with a working small tractor and a “pond” that doesn’t hold water.

There are several out buildings, including a large metal building on a slab, a carport / garage, 2 large metal carports, a nice 8×12 shed, a small tool shed, and a wood shed. There are 2 RVs on the property. One of the RVs is pretty much junk while the other is nice and could easily be made livable.

The previous owner was an Ivy league graduate with a P.H.D. He was a bit of an eccentric and collected a bunch of interesting things. I bought the place with all his belongings as part of the deal. In future writings I’ll go through all the interesting things about this property and the things on it.

I closed on the property in November. I put in my notice at my job Cavana’s Pub and Grub in Sutter Creek. I highly recommend that you visit Cavana’s if you get the opportunity. Sean and Chelsea (the owners) are wonderful people. (even though as of this writing Sean is still a No Agenda db ๐Ÿ˜„)

I then purchased a 6ft x 12ft trailer and made my way back to WA to collect all my stuff, then back to CA to gather the rest, then finally I made the drive to MO. The trip was super scary as I was way too overloaded, but I made it around December 1st 2022.

I made it nearly 2000 miles without indecent until my cattle guard took out my trailer jack. That’s what happens when you’re tired and impatient.

Since my arrival I’ve been doing a lot of cleaning and organizing. It feels like I haven’t made a dent, there’s so much to do, but I don’t mind the work at all

I have a nice pasture, I hope to have hair sheep someday. There’s a seasonal stream that runs the entire length of my property๐Ÿ™‚

I call my property “LibreLeaf Acres”, Libre for liberty and freedom, Leaf for homesteading and farming, hence liberty from the land, more or less.

I have a whole lot more to add so please stay tuned. I have great plans for this property as well as this website.
