Usually, everything I need is in my own backyard. I tend to use the term backyard loosely.
Sometimes it's literally in my back yard, like my the fish in my koi pond or like Mr. Santiago, my neighbor and part of the inspiration for my Ranch Camp Series in Hawaii.

My yard is even bigger if you consider (which I like to do) that our backyard extends into Pennsylvania AND Delaware. In fact, the street behind us is called Delpa for Delaware and Pennsylvania. (get it? if not, don't feel bad, my kids pointed that out to me. hmmm.) That brings me to Doug Paul's backyard.
