Reason #162 Why I Belong In The Woods

Cause that is where I am packed and ready to go! Time for some rural living...

My dream place to live is also in the woods :)

In a little straw bale house that has solar power, geothermal heat, passive solar etc etc. With a gazillion gardens, greenhouses (maybe a treehouse?) etc etc. Big dreams that feel so real that I believe it will happen one day! Barring that, I'd just like to live ANYwhere in the country :)

I'm so envious of your trip but also SO so happy and excited for you! I love your appreciation for nature... just yesterday I found your old post of the amazing stick buggy guy! wow that was so cool!
Your fellow nature nerd ;-)

oooh Liberty, that sounds so awesome! gardens are the biggest deal for me & fresh air...
I am so glad you saw that crazy wild stick-ish bug- have you ever seen anything like that guy? I havent.

I am so happy for you! I hope your new house is perfect!

My dream place would be a completely MCS safe straw or poplar log home, in a clearing in the woods, with a large veggie/fruit garden, lots of flowers, huge aviaries for my parrots, and if I am really lucky, a stream or similiar nearby (if not, I might look into making a water garden, I just love frogs!) Along with solar power, solar water heaters, LED lights, the lovely clothes washer you reviewed, and everything else amazing and green!

Oh, I just saw your post about where you used to live, and it sounds amazing!!!!!! Now if only I could find a place like that. I am looking right now, I need to find someplace soon, as this house is really killing me.

And you are really making me jealous talking about the NC mountains, it is soo lovely there! I was born in the Va mountains, though, and they are very nice, too.

Meg - that sound like where I am... listening to the frogs now that I have arrived in Big Sandy Mush NC, as of last night!
Fresh air rocks :)
