After three years living off-grid in our cabin in the woods, we spent a week in town with a friend who was ill, and wow, was it ever easy to help her out. When did I suddenly become such a good housekeeper? It seems that off-grid living has taught me more than I expected.
We've been city homesteaders, learning sustainable and self-reliant living in a city apartment. Then we lived in the deep woods for three years, five miles from our nearest neighbour. With 100% solar power, wood heat and no running water, we increased our skills and knowledge. Now, using what we've learned, we're moving with the four children to a house in a tiny village where we will continue to pursue sustainable and self-reliant living.
