I am over the moon to make this announcement! And NO we are not having another baby, lol! If you have been following me on Instagram you may already know, but we are FINALLY building a family camp and we are now in our own hunting lease.
We have been talking about finding a hunting lease for years. If you are from Louisiana or even just a hunting you know how expense hunting leases and hunting is! You have to either have a lease or know someone to go on their lease. State land is free but you can’t build a stand you have to take it with you every time you go. It can be crazy at time. We have talked about building our own camp for years as well. But still you have to have a lease to be able to put it. You can’t just go tie up your camp anywheres. Yes there is cheaper leases just for camps but no hunting rights.
So this year we had the opportunity to join a very good lease that has hunting right and a place we can put a camp. This is a big decision for our family. But its the right one for us!
We are a water family for sure. I grow up going to my family camp. There is so many pictures and video of us there and just on the water! Same goes for Raymond. He can remember leaving for school on Friday mornings with the boat already hooked up to his truck. Even now, when Raymond is home we are in the boat just about everyday!
Connor loves to go for boat rides. We have taken him fishing so much this year that he knows how to run jug line and he is only 2 1/2 years old!! He knows where ” pa’s camp” is already!! So we know he will love it just as much as we will. We can not wait to share life long memories there as a family.
I will do my best to update the process of building out camp. We are building a 20×24 float with a 16×16 living area on it! We will have two porches, a small one off the back and a larger one on the front, with a 2 foot walk way on both sides! We are going to use a floor plan simpler to the one below with a few little changes. One will be a stand shower with a closet instead of a tub.
Today I order 6 PermaFloats (36in. x 96in. x 24in.) that we will use to build the deck and camp on. You can find the link here to my Liketoknow.it I will do my best to link everything we bye while building!
I can’t wait to get started and be able to enjoy our time in God’s Country!
