The minivan office is now outfitted with a printer, laptop, iPad, even a coffee machine

Dude, I think you could travel the country.  No needs to stay at the wife's family farm.  Go work from near a waterfall or the coast or something.

I work in the middle of a city and I still had some cows having noisy sex across from where I parked my vehicle one day. WTF is so special about his hill?

TFA says he spends time fishing while taking work phone calls.  Where do I sign up?  There are much worse ways to spend a day than drowning bait.

On my parents place you had to walk up the hill to the gas well to get cell service.  Hilly and that was the one spot with a LOS to a cell tower

Yeah, that will work fine when winter approaches.

Everyone and anyone who owns 17.000 acre farm can afford to take time off from a side job.
