The shopping and realization of the boat dream continues. In the mean time I reside in Montana, no closer to the ocean and freedom. I have however started in what I believe to be the right direction.
Two years ago I bought a school bus and converted it into a land yaught. The construction was started when I got it and not I have almost finished it. I may not be living on a boat but I have been learning the systems. I have living off the grid or independent of it for those two years. Water comes from the rivers, power from the sun, and I have a incinerating toilet...
I have been on the boat path! I was working as a underground surveyor in a mine and have been layed off. To find another job that pays enough we have to relocate. Lucky to have the bus!
Option two I had a dream about last night. Trade the land yaught for a real one. (firstname.lastname@example.org for Photos, movies, and anything information you would like.)
My wife and I also have the dream of a homestead... We are set up to do this now. The two year project of building a cabin is in reach and I fear that if we spend our saving to realize a dream we have in common, mine will never come to pass.
So living independent of the world on a hidden ranch or the water...
Change is coming for us one way or another.
I hope the holidays are treating you well
