Been a'while

It sure has...and here I find myself, a year out (and a bit) since my last blog. Looks like its time to get back on board and start sharing my thoughts with the masses, 'cause I know y'all are just dying to hear 'em.

Since last go-round, we completed our project up in Moscow, ID and are pleased to announce that we are still the 100% owners of 22 acres in the foothills of Moscow Mountain that boast off-the-grid homes. Pretty rad.

Unfortunately, the economy hit us like it hit everyone else and work pulled us back south. So we're enduring 100 degree summers instead of -11 degree winters, and doing it all-over again, kind of.

Take what we did it Moscow, mash it up a bit, and here we find ourselves, taking what we learned and what we now hold near and dear to hearts, and making it more "traditional." And by that, I mean less intimidating.

Off-the-Grid livin' ain't for everyone, that's for sure, but it works and it feels good. Being back in a place that allows me to run the shower for hours on end or use a microwave or hell, crank the ac down to 30 degrees and pretend I'm back on the hill, isn't the same as it was before we began our off-the-grid adventures almost 2-years ago. Living off-the-grid has permanently affected us so now, in reflection, I want to share what I learned and how I'm making the transition back to 'normal' living. Although, normal is relative...
