Just watched Tarah's (40 below fruity) newest video about living in a cabin in nature and totally fell in love because I would love to do the same one day. For anyone who can offer advice though, how does one support themselves on a lifestyle like this? And is it difficult to get enough fruit when not too close to civilization? Haha. Thanks!
Oh I absolutely agree! That's awesome that you've done that! I'm definitely going to look into it once I've finished school ;)
I've seen where people get jobs on farms (in Hawaii, Florida, etc) in exchange for a place to live on the property and food. If you're on your own without children or a spouse, you're freer to move and live wherever and as simply as you want. It's all about taking that step and cutting loose from a life and cultural restraints that are no longer fulfilling. I know that Tarah and Ryan moved in a small camper to Vancouver Island first; she got a job at a raw restaurant, they connected with other like minded adventurers that led to living in said cabin. Life is about living without fear and forming relationships with like minded individuals for support. When you take that leap of faith (after doing your research of course), the Universe just opens doors for you.
Haha thank you everyone, I totally agree that finding like-minded individuals is a necessity; lucky for me, my best friend is OBSESSED with the idea of living simply like this so I may talk to him about logistics and things like that. I actually quite like the idea of living fairly close to civilization and being able to take advantage of the job opportunities, grocery stores, etc. while still living fairly independently and simply. At the very least, I think I want to try getting into backpacking this summer for sure though! =)
