If it wasn't for your family ...how basic.. back to the land.. could you or would you really want to go. My city sister can't believe the way we live now ..stone age she calls it. I think I could do with a lot less than we have...but when you already have it..might as well use it. Thought if we ever moved again I would like to really, really go basic. How have you done away with things on your homesteads that you had before ?? Figure in a few years won't be able to afford much of anything anyway with the increase in prices in utilities and all. What would you really do ??!!
