Living in the woods doesn’t mean living like a savage.
As a kid I always went hunting with my dad, and we would spend weekends in the family hunting lodge that was built by my great-grandfather.
As much as I liked being out there, the rickety old cabin left a lot to be desired. I decided that when I got old I would get a nicer, newer cabin so I could stay out there for as long as I wanted. More and more I need a break from city life, and the woods provided that. These days I have a modest sized cabin lined with solar panels, an energy collection unit that lets me convert sunlight into energy for my HVAC system, my kitchen, and my stereo. I don’t have a tv, mostly I just listen to old vinyl records on my turntable, and I try not to use the air conditioning more than needed. This is life in the woods ,after all, and my energy resources are limited, so I can’t run the AC all day every day. During the winter I try not to run the central heating, either ,and rely on my fireplace for heat. But there is no other choice on a brutally hot summer day then to nudge the thermostat and get the AC going. I rarely hunt any more, but I stay in the woods more than ever before, and with wifi connections and climate control, why would I ever want to stay anywhere else? I love having this little air conditioner to help me out!
