Howdy!

My wife and I live off grid up in the hills of Washington state in a small straw bale cottage we built ourselves. We raise all our own meat, grow much of our own food and in general are pretty durn self-sufficent. We enjoy getting out even further into the backcountry by foot, canoe, horseback and sometimes even by bike.
