One of the reasons people choose to live a more self-reliant life and homestead is to get away from money. They don’t want their life to be focused solely on making money. The trouble with that is, you really can’t get completely away from needing some of that ol’ ‘trading paper.’ Some scoff at people who homestead and still buy things from the store but even the pioneers of old had to get supplies from the trading post!
My husband and I were raised in rural Southeast Alaska. We dream of buying property on a remote island to homestead and live a more self sustainable life. At the same time, we work to be prepared for the unknown things life can throw at you when you least expect it. Every day is spent working to fulfill our dream and until then, we learn all we can to increase our skills so we will thrive when the land comes!
