Off Grid Supply Hauling

DSC_0182

The tractor got stuck at the bottom of the hill because we didn’t get chains for the tires.  We have to walk all of our supplies from the road up the the cabin.  It’s a decent hike and it is not fun to carry a heavy load back and fourth.  This utility sled makes things a lot easier, but it is still hard work.  We are getting our exercise for sure.

Just having some fun sledding here, but if you look in the background you can see the chimney on the cabin.  This is just to give you and idea how far we are from the road.

The tent is right behind me in this picture.  The road is at the bottom of this hill.  If you look closely, sort of in the left upper corner, you can see a wind chime hanging.  Behind that is our neighbors school bus that is parked just off the road.  As much work as it is to live that far back in the woods, it is so nice to have all that privacy.  We really did pick the perfect piece of land and a great place to build a cabin!
