We are trying to live GREEN here, being off-the-grid now for over 25 years. Most of our power is supplied by the Sun and wind. We heat with wood that we cut from our own land, and our water comes from a 1926 artesian-fed well that never goes dry...
In Winter, we melt snow for most water uses, all except for drinking. I'm retired, so I don't have to worry about work anymore. My time and my land are my own...and that's a good feeling!
We live in the wild, here. Moose, deer, bears (black, brown, grizly), cougar, bobcat, grouse, wild turkey, snakes, critters of all kinds can be found on any given day up here, and I wouldn't live anywhere else!
ENJOY THE VIEW!!!
