yurt living, yes to broadband no to running water

article in the times about a young couple w/ child who live cheaply in a yurt near seldovia in alaska.  they do have electricity & internet, but use an outhouse & have no indoor plumming.  they use a woodstove for heating.  with the money saved they take walking treks each year.

one of my thoughts for this new year is to find balance between nature & technology, i find this an interesting blend.  would this be sustainable for mass society?  different energy sources would have to be used instead of firewood on a large scale..

  1. interestingly i just watched “dinner w/ andre” which was next in queue in my netflix list, a few minor annoying spots, but all in all, a thought provoking movie. especially for the beginning of the year, thinking about how to live your life.
