Looks fantastic!!!

No doubt 6 weeks in the woods by yourself has a grounding effect to say the least. After the work of the day is complete, do the art work or write the book we all have hidden inside if the timing is correct? Or a time to contemplate new chapters, especially if your family is growing.

Place looks great, good the hear your rocket mass heater is a success!

Peace! Happy Winter! tis the season. :)

Hi all,

It's been quite a while since I've posted an update on my homestead. That's because I've been busy building all sorts of awesome some new stuff, gardening, and givin'er.

Life up in the great white north couldn't be better.


Not mentioned in the video is the new solar system I installed. I'm running two 29v 230W panels through a 60A mppt charge controller into a 48v bank of four 100Ah 12v batteries.

It has been producing about 150Ah per day. That's enough to power a high efficiency 6 cu. ft. freezer, laptop, stereo, lighting, a few small kitchen appliances, the odd power tool, and still have enough juice left over to take the electric trolling motor for a rip out in the fishing boat! I put it together for under $2000.

Running water AND electricity. ....Now we's livin' like fancy city folk!

Good catch and a valid concern a02716.

However, what you thought was a pond in the vid is actually a 1 km long, 140 ft deep spring fed lake. The "pond" in the vid is actually just one of it's small bays.

This should give you a better idea as to the scope of the lake:


Also, you should know that we filter our water through a bio-sand filter:


And finally, through my years of bush-crashing, by slowly introducing lake water into my diet, I have developed an immunity to giardia (beaver fever); so it's for my wife and my client's benefit that the water be filtered. I can personally drink from this lake with no ill effects. The water is crystal clear, cold all year, and delicious!

We made a pontoon boat out of 2 canoes, paddled each load 2 miles, then shouldered the lumber up hill half a mile to the site. This took 100's of trips on the shoulder. And of course lets not forget the windows, a 6000 watt generator, insulation, etc....

I've seen a few bears now, but they have been no bother.

I had fun clearing my build site with my trusty Gransfors Bruks feller.

There is a huge blueberry patch at the build site, service berry trees, cherry trees, blackberries, raspberries.... yum!

The cabin should be complete by mid Sept, well, complete enough to live in anyway. I plan on taking my time on the interior through the winter.

A month without the internet has done wonders for me. I've stopped concerning myself with problems I can do nothing about, and started focusing on problems I can work on to enrich my life.

I am happier, healthier, and far more content.

Nice it is..

The SolN1 makes alternative energy easy enough for the masses.

This should be a must for those with cabins, and bug out shelters, your home when there is no power, be the one who has it!


Tutorial and testimony of building a magnetic free energy device that generates free electric energy for home use, to find out how this has been done

Follow this easy set of plans to build your own Magniwork Magnetic Electricity Generator for your home or business. A complete system can be built AND installed easily, and for less than $100!

The Magniwork plans are getting rave reviews. Great business opportunity for those who wish to build and install these systems!

Death to power companies and right now a way to make a living, as this will be one of the most desired pieces of equipment in the world.

No matter where you live this will be more desired than a new car. Put your utility bill back in your pocket.

Free energy!


One or the other, they both seem to be great products that you can create yourself.

How is it that we can let anger destroy what makes us happy and brings enjoyment to others we don't know? One of the wonderful things that was very enjoyable were the trips to the cabin in the woods and seeing all the progress.

Where are you now?

Came across this video that made me think of this member and his wife who gave some of us a glimpse into a world that many have never seen. Hope you come back at least to update your long overdue life in the woods.
