my favourite afternoons,
In Nature

These are my goals for the rest of my life. Does this mean I want to live alone and grumpy like a Hermit in the woods. NO !

I do wish to live in the Bush up North, live simpler, create my own food, build my own Home and enjoy Life. Since some have wondered, some have criticised and some have complimented. Well now this post will be filled with links on a regular basis that show that others have the same dreams and aspirations.

So if your offended, go back to your HUGE carbon footprint life, walk away now! Others will find some of the links to be enlightening and peaceful.

Hoping to get a property up North, looking to build a home from the land. Small footprint and eco-friendly home. Ideas depending on the terrain include: The $50 and up underground house, Yurts & Gers – Wiki Yurt, Tony Wrench Round House, Salish Pit House and a PDF of a Salish Pit House, Ojibwa Wikup or another Ancient structure , a Winter Pit House that is half underground with straw bales and a living green rough, Celtic or Viking Longhouse.

  1. I share your simplistic ideals. One of the first books I ever read on simple living was ‘Your Money or Your Life’ – it was then, it dawned on me the true cost of ‘stuff’. I’ve always lived a simplistic lifestyle but since reading that book, I’ve sought out articles, websites, and books on living on less.
    Thanks for sharing all those links.

    • Thanks again for sharing.
      Hope there is not too many links, though truthfully there will be more links coming soon.
      If you subscribe to comments, then each time I upload links I will post that I have done so.
      cheers ~Wild_E
