I wanted to give an update on our life. As some of you know, we’ve been on one big, long adventure. We’ve homesteaded off-grid for the past 37 years. The last 17 have been spent alone in the wilderness of northern Saskatchewan on remote Hockley Lake.
We’ve been on the cusp of a major change. We have one more adventure in life before we hit the checkout counter and that is to move to Nova Scotia, somewhere on or close to the ocean, to start over again and build a new off-grid homestead from scratch. The last 6 months have been spent packing and preparing.
We’ve Been Busy!
Our move is atypical. Not only do we have to pack an entire house worth of stuff, but everything needs to be lugged down to the lake, loaded on a plane and then flown out to a float plane base where it’s offloaded and made ready for the move across the country.
I’ve written many posts on our new website walking the prospective as well as seasoned homesteader step by step through the many things that need to be considered for an off-grid homesteading lifestyle. They were easy posts for us to write not only because we could tap into our many years of experience but also because the thoughts and ideas we posted are fresh on our minds as we seek another place to build our new and final homestead.
We invite everybody to visit this website and our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/OffGridAndFree.MyPathToTheWilderness/ for updates so you can take the new journey with us. We will utilize our years of experience to start over once again and build from the ground up. You can be a part of the process.
I hope everybody has a good spring and summer. Ours will be a challenge.
