Re: A (soon to be) Self Sufficient newbie!

Hey all. Just a quickie, to let you know that I have been busily posting on my blog - using all the cool stuff I'm learning, from forums like this one. :study: There are posts about why I decided to leave 'civilisation' for the 'wilds' and other stuff too, like composting toilets and satellite broad...

Re: Its Not Easy Being Green

The book was in my local library and is the best one (of its type) I've read so far. Will probably buy a copy - seen some on ebay - soon as I can. :icon_smile:

Re: Its Not Easy Being Green

Ah, that's a shame. Oh well, the book is an immortal reminder of the Strawbridge's heyday... :?

Its Not Easy Being Green

I'd love for this programme to return and for the Strawbridge Family to be on TV more. It was always very informative, they were fun to watch and seemed to be making it up as they went along - like the rest of us! :iconbiggrin: I found the book, of the series, in the local library recently and it wa...

Re: A (soon to be) Self Sufficient newbie!

Hi Doofaloofa Thanks for the reply. It's not actually an island, although it does feel like one. It's a thin peninsula, with no roads in - hence having to walk in, or use a boat from the bigger mainland outcrop below it. And there are around 80 other people living there, spread along the peninsula. ...

Re: A (soon to be) Self Sufficient newbie!

Thanks for all that. Sounds like a similar scenario. Although drainage isn't too much of a problem as the land slopes (not too steeply) down to the loch shore. And there's already some infrastructure in place - big greenhouse and the like. Yes, think there's on average an extra hour of daylight ther...

Re: A (soon to be) Self Sufficient newbie!

Hey Tosca

Just checked out your blog. I contemplated Bulgaria myself, along with a couple of other places, such as Portugal and Spain.

But decided they'd have too much nice weather; so opted for wind, rain and snow! :wink:

Re: A (soon to be) Self Sufficient newbie!

Thanks Bulworthyproject And sorry to diggernotdreamer, for initially putting a link to my blog on the post, without realising I wasn't allowed. I was going to reply directly to the message on that, but I didn't seem to be able to... As the blog had all the info, I thought people would be interested ...

A (soon to be) Self Sufficient newbie!

Hey Guys Enjoying the site and forum very much, and I'm glad I can soon 'officially' join the 'club'.  I'm embarking on a complete life change, giving up a 25 year career and moving 500 miles from everything I know. All to try and live a more sustainable, less impactful, simpler and more fulfilling...
