I have been giving this a lot of thought. Prior to coming to this lodge, I have always lived without TV [except for VHS movies], computers and internet. I never really had a computer and internet until 6 years ago. This was something knew to me and I went crazy learning how to use it. I was on there constantly.
But, it has been becoming a real pain in the *****. I really hate it, especially when it does things that I can't figure out. Not to mention the few problems I had using it to shop. Having Satallite internet and TV and having electricity is a real pain.
I really miss just living with the basic necessities. So, I have decided that, in June when I go out to my property up North, I am doing away with the majority of modern convienences. I will go back to the lifestyle that I like and have no problems. Although I will have a freezer and a small generator to fire it up when needed.
I am wondering how others who live a remote lifestyle feel about having Internet and/or TV. How do you feel about these things?
