    Hi Everybody,

    I'm new to this board. A new friend of mine told me about it and thought I would like it. I live in NY state in the middle of 4000 acres of state forest land. It's just my husband and me - our kids are on their own. We generate our own power as our home is off the grid. I take it that everyone here is familar with Countryside Magazine - that's what directed us to this particular lifestyle. We are working hard on becoming self sufficient.
