We had our land closing this morning in Ithaca, NY!
We now own 10 acres of wooded land on West Danby Road in Newfield, New York.
It’s a very angular plot bordered on the east by railroad tracks.
We will be hearing the train pass by a couple times a week. We heard it for the first time in September when we camped at Robert Treman State Park, about 3 miles away from our land.
Hearing it makes me feel young again. I used to hear the train pass by and blow it’s whistle when I lived in town (from the age of 8 through 16). I spent many summer days walking along train tracks. That was the route my friends and I took to get to the creek.
I’m excited to experience those sounds from our new land! Soon. It will happen.
Stay tuned for more updates as we start clearing and laying out the building lot.
