Some people like to live "self-sufficiently" a la Thoreau, far away from everyone else in the Wilderness. The blog and the book Cabin Porn is devoted to this dream:
I have nothing against minimalist dwellings per se, but I need electricity, running water, and considerable space for books. I don't know about people, though.
I came to this site through the review of a book by Howard Axelrod. It's called Point of Vanishing and is his memoir about two years of living in a remote cabin in Vermont. Not for me!
I promise this is the last "dream" post!
