It’s been a long time that I’ve lived any way that I wanted to live.
That comes with being a bachelor living in the woods alone.
I have a nice little home that I built with the help of friends. There is a big wood stove that I use for heating. I’m not so far out that I’m off the electrical grid so I definitely could have put in central air conditioning. But when I started all this, I was doing my best to walk away from all the conveniences of this modern era. But that was 30 years ago and people change. A big, big change has come to my life as I’m getting married for the first time. I think that’s been the best part of the internet age for me. As a bit of a loner, it’s been nice to be able to connect online with people who are of a like mind. And that’s where I met the lady who is about to be my wife. We aren’t moving into town but rather, she’s moving into my home. So I’m trying to make changes that will make her time here a lot more comfortable. I’ve upgraded the bathroom with a big garden tub. The kitchen was completely renovated. And I even called the HVAC company. It’s a little late for the central air conditioning. But that doesn’t mean that I can’t have residential HVAC for my new bride. The HVAC professionals installed a pair of ductless heat pumps inside the cabin. And wow, do they ever produce great quality heating and air. I’m so impressed and I’m just glad that my lady can now enjoy some air conditioning this Summer when it gets hot.
