as we can be for now.
I traded my old van for a camper, and just fixed it all up.
Got a wind turbine for powering the computer and fridge and heat etc....
Dehumidifyer for fresh water collected right out of the air, and will be adding a water cashe system of sorts as well...
Compost toilet, veggies and fruits galore all growing etc. up in the top part for an extra bed above the drivers consil..
We are totally stoced with food stuffs that can be seeded and grown quickly, like beans and lentils, peanut tree, sunflowers in pots, wheat grass
juicer etc, etc, etc, etc....
We own our house, but spend 99% of our time out here now.
We are renting out our house to friends and just have the basement suite, but don't even really need it anymore...
We LOVE it!
I do have a 4 1/2 year old though, so we are going to still have to go to town everyday for his school etc, but every day we are closer and closer to
complete freedom, and school etc is just for fun for him, I am teaching him everything he needs to know to live, like growing plants etc...
We are having an absolute blast, still living a but in both worlds, but just our obligations.
If the SHTF we can drop our obligations as well, and continue on our merry way!
We live in such an isolated are, that people can only get here by boat or ferry, thoughwe ARE on the maimland and not on an island, so we don't have
to worry about city people comming up and looting etc, since most peple up here are already quite self sufficient as well..... almost every yard has a
greenhouse and incredibly thriving gardens etc, so most of us help each other out as opposed to stealing etc...... it is so great!
Last year we didn't have the camper yet but still stayed in the wilderness for 4 months straight, in a tent, now we are good to go in the winter as
this year I have my travelling greenhouse (the camper) to go along with us though, and we couldn'tbe happier..... we dread going in the house, we
only use it for bathing etc when we aren't swimming in the lake all day etc......
we couldn't BE much happier!
So any others who are almost free now as well.....any tips or pointers? Or just share your joy!
