Jack English is 93 years old and he’s not slowing down much. Jack is one of those living legends. His cabin is 5 miles of the beaten path, and is the one of the reasons he purchased the place.
Situated deep in the Ventana Wilderness and was up for auction, so he put an offer on it and was successful.
Jack English age 93 built his cabin from materials on his land, and by milling trees by hand. After his wife died, he wanted to be totally alone, so he decided to leave society behind. The cabin is now his permanent residence. We can only hope we all will be this active at Jack’s age.
5 Reasons I Like Living Off the Grid
I enjoy living in a remote part of the country in our off-the-grid home. When I tell others where I live, there’s always the questions relating to how difficult it must be. The implication is that the grocery store is more than a mile away. Then there are the usual type questions about how do I “get” power, and how the snowmobile transportation works in the winter.
Well, I’ve been living in this off grid location for over 10 years and there are some distinct advantages to having your own property out in the sticks. If you’ve ever considered such a move, there are many “challenges” to overcome and probably a few fears. But, if you really want to make the move, there are advantages too. They may not be readily apparent, so I’ll list a few.
I live on the east site of the Cascade mountains in an off grid home with my family and animals. I designed and operate both the home power system, and a wireless network serving my home office and many other people in the region. My Interests are alternate power, Linux, and caring for cats, dogs, llamas, sheep, goats and chickens (with family help).
