They lived in the middle of nowhere. Literally, he drove down a mountain, across the gulley and up the other mountain. No cars. Anywhere. Gravel? All the way.
They were moderately well-kept. Probably could have used a fresh set of clothes and a shower but, all in all? Farmers.
Their house? Old - but on a foundation - with a trailer right next to the house.
Over 40 more goats in the barn.
- It was on the other side of middle of no where. Seriously. He drove for over 40 miles and didn't pass a single car.
- Goat "ranchers" maybe don't always practice good personal hygiene. For example: this guy could have used a shower, flea dip, hair cut, shave, fingernail brushing, nail clipping and tooth brushing. I can only imagine what a person Todd described as "The Unibomber's Brother" looked like in person. Impolite to ask to take a picture?
- Goat "ranchers" don't always live in mansions. Todd said it looked like the Unibomber's Brother's "house" was a one-room shanty-town that he was pretty sure was made from pallets. After going inside (only to sign papers, not for fun..) he noticed that the bed was in the kitchen. And on cinder blocks. I guess "breakfast in bed" when you live alone in the middle of nowhere means actually cooking breakfast from bed. Hmm.
- They had no electricity. Ya know, the stuff they discovered in the 1700s? He would fire up the generator whenever his wife needed to use the internet.
- No electricity but they have the internet? Interesting, don't you think?
- Dinner consisted of beef jerky, green tea and spicy habenero chips.
- He didn't pack a toothbrush. Or deodorant. Or a change of clothes.
- He hadn't showered, shaved or brushed his teeth.
- He didn't pack his heart-burn medicine. (Too bad, considering the meal, right?)
- He hadn't taken his shoes off in at least 24 hours.
- We seriously underestimated what it would take to raise goats.
