We are a family of five that have traded in our city shoes for cowboy boots. We moved from Colorado Springs, CO to rural Wyoming in July 2017. We relocated our Physical Therapy practice and are building our homestead (minus the log house) from scratch on 35 acres of southern Wyoming prairie.



We are:

The High Plainsman
The High Plainslady
The High Plainsboy
The High Plainsgirl
The High Plainsbaby


We had a shared dream of escaping city life for a slower and more simpler country life since we met. The High Plainsman is from rural western Nebraska with a home town of 2000 people and I (the High Plainslady and person who will be writing this blog) am from a town of 12,000 in south Alabama. We were able to make our dream a reality and we are very happy with the decision.

It is not our goal to be 100% self sustaining but we do plan to be mostly off grid, have chickens and raise a few animals, garden outdoors and with a year round greenhouse and I will continue to cook and bake from scratch as I always have.

We are excited to share our newest adventures and what will likely also include misadventures as we establish our homestead.
