[Cob] living with no electricityDamon Howell dhowell at pickensprogress.com

Charmaine, what an inspiring note. I often dream about living without electricity myself, but actually doing it is another subject. Although if everything is set up right, it really isn't that much harder. You do have to be more conscious of the processes. I haven't completely aborted my dream to be sustainable; I am still powering my cabin with solar panels and batteries (which is NOT sustainable by the way) and building a cob house. But that's a far cry from living sustainably. Like many people, I have no need because I still have to go to town every day for work (to pay for my land). Why not drop by the store and pick up what I need to live with while I'm there? Why spend all my time working at my job then come home to work with chickens, goats, cows, gardening, picking, washing, canning, fixing the leak in the roof, and laundry until dark? Sorry I'm throwing off on the REAL people who actually have it in them to do what we all should. I'll learn one day I guess, I'm still young! Damon
