We just got back from a birthday party. Josie and Craig live in a cabin “off the grid”. No utilities. They get their water from the creek (under ground pipes bring it to the home). Their power either comes from a generator, or they’re thinking about getting a hydro-power set-up so they can get electricity from the running water in the creek. Solar panels are also an option. Wow, how simple!
We had a great time at the party. We cooked kabobs, had hand-crank ice cream, cookies and chocolate cake. Everybody just sat around the table and chatted. What a pleasant evening.
