I left the rat race 15 years ago and never looked back! I was a high school teacher and I burned out after 10 year of teaching in private treatment centers. I had an acre on my parents old homestead so I moved there and lived in a small RV while I built my homestead.

Now I live in a solar cabin I designed and built for under $2000. I use a solar composting toilet I designed, a solar water heater, solar oven, and more. I raise chickens, rabbits, and a garden. I have no house payments and no monthly bills and I only work 9 months out of the year running a small business. Life is good!
