Experiences of a
Former City Slicker
Welcome to Living on Acreage!
Adam Grandberg shares his former city slicker experiences with you in this book.
Do you live on acreage? Have you daydreamed about living out here? Have
you looked at acreage to invest in, or to live on? Country living is
intriguing to many city folks. Living on Acreage describes the author’s happy (and
sometimes frustrating) experiences of living on Florida acreage from 2001 to 2015.
Living on Acreage Illustrated Book is Divided into 5 Chapters:
Chapter 1 – Lifestyle – Enjoy these observations of a
former “city slicker.” This introduction to the acreage experience
provides observations that urbanites don’t have to contend with.
Chapter 2 – Visitors, Residents, Neighbors, and Critters
– City residents have their share of pests and vermin. The author
describes (with pictures) some of the common and not-so-common plants,
animals, insects and reptiles often found on acreage.
Chapter 3 – Resources – You’re not living in the
city anymore, and “what you need” can be a long car- or truck-drive
away. Here’s some “words of wisdom” on how to live more independently
than you did before.
Chapter 4 – Water, Water Everywhere – From lakes and
drainage ditches to floods and hurricanes, the author relates how water
resources are managed. Sometimes Mother Nature interferes with that
Chapter 5 – Land, Lots of Land (to Work) – From
tools and machines to “hiding in plain sight,” acreage provides
opportunities. You can keep objects out of the public eye, but also the
opportunity to keep you plenty busy!
