If all of the modern appliances were taken away from you, could you survive? Would you be able to cook food, wash and dry clothes, and haul water? Many people have limited knowledge and even less experience with how to live like this but for many of our great grandparents grew up exactly the way mentioned above. For all intents and purposes, they had homesteading and pioneering skills.
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!
