Living off the grid in Ashe County

The Mountain Times has a nice article on a woman who lives off the grid in Ashe County and produces almost all of her own food.

“I left a career in nursing to pursue a primitive lifestyle. Since leaving public employment, I have gained my sense of humor, my health and my life,” she said. “This life is hard work, but it feels good to be physically tired at the end of the day, as opposed to being mentally tired.”

I certainly admire anyone who can reach that level of frugality and self-sufficiency. However, for myself, I’ll be looking for the sweet spot between simple living and having leisure time for things I want to do.
