I did it. The trip changed in character while in planning, but it launched on March 2006, and by autumn, we were preapring to reclaim 44 acres. I made it 400 miles, my finace stopped at the cabin. You can read about our exploits here:
I blogged the preparations at GNN, and the trip is up on our site, walkingeastward.
