And then there were none
So the van in the shop, waiting for my very busy mechanic to get a look at it. Yesterday my lovely wife comes home and says the brakes on her car are soft. Yep, it's leaking brake fluid from somewhere. That's two vehicles out of commission.
We are down to one bicycle -which is working great by the way. Sometimes I think it's a mistake to have machinery more complicated than a bicycle. Of course I think that way on pleasant sunny days when I don't have very far to go or much stuff to move.
The canoes are working fine. One of these days I'm going to take a canoe into town. Its a little over a two mile walk to the river, not all that hard using portage wheels. After that a pleasant 12 mile paddle puts me into town.
I do miss living on a simple sailboat. I did have problems there too, but they were small problems. One of these days we may live on a boat full time. It will not be a big one, nor will it be complicated.
Realistically though, we'll rely on family and friends for any transportation needs until something gets fixed. If you are gong to live out in the boonies, better have some community to rely on.
I live in an area of NH known as the Great North Woods. I'm in my dome-i-cile out in the county with my lovely wife and a varying number of family and friends
-part red neck, part hippie but all country. Experimenting and enjoying the adventure of life.
