Welcome! Bem-Vindo!

[Photo of a road in the coastal mountains]Happy 2012!

Welcome indeed! to Wyatt Underwood's Homestead. Pull up a rock, a chunk of log, an old saddle blanket, whatever makes you comfortable. Sit down and stay a while.

Here, let's brighten up the place, open a window on the mountain road up to here. Have a good ride? Or are you walking?

Speaking of brightening up the place, let's wish that on 2012! Wish hard! Last was a hard year on lotsa people. (Geez, I've said that for four years running, I think!) Let's have this be a brightening year.

Hungry? Try some virtual chili. Warms the body, comforts the spirit. [Image of a bright red chili pepper]

Got somethin' to say? Tell your host. He welcomes comments, well, most comments. If you're feelin' mean and nasty, feel free to stew in it or take it out on someone else. (grin)

Otherwise, visit some of the rooms of this here homestead. The views from some of them are pretty expansive, and you're welcome in any.

Why homesteading? Why a log cabin? Visit the cellar for a little history. This site's been on the internet for about twelve years now.

If you want to see a recent foray, wander on the Sundial Bridge trip to see and read about a motorcycle ride, L.A. to Redding and back, with a quick sidetrip to Weaverville. Isn't California wonderful?

If you just want to see the next-to-newest addition, jump right into The Trip! - 7700 miles on my NightTrain to celebrate the Harley-Davidson Centennial and visit a lot of family and friends besides.

Leavin' now? Well, come back sometime. Homestead changes as I get time and feel the urge. [Small image of construction worker] You're welcome back, changes or not.
