I love hearing and reading about people and families that sell it all and head out to the woods..or wherever..to homestead with the bare basics. Guess the pioneer spirit amazes me. If you have, tell us what was the hardest modern thing to give up and why and how you are doing it now. I often wish the Homesteading magazines would go back into there archives and find homesteaders from 20 years ago that they interviewed and see how they are today. We have "homesteaded" for 25 years now...but still have the usual gadgets to make life easy for us. Electric and washing machine, indoor plumbing and all. I do realize Homesteading is different things to different people but tell me what you are all doing !! Thanks !!!
