About wilderness dweller

I have lived for more than 30 years as a Wilderness Dweller. Most of that time was in cabins I built myself far from the nearest road, high in the mountains of British Columbia, Canada. My "retirement" home is accessible by a bush road but still far from neighbours. I live off the grid, and operate this blog by solar-powered satellite internet.

    Awesome little project. I can’t wait to see it unfold. I was just out in the Marble Mountains with a buddy who has long wanted to build a cabin there. Its probably a 3 hour walk in, so the difficulty of construction obviously increases. He helped me frame my house here in the city (he’s a house builder in real life) so we both know a little about building stuff. Long story short, there was lots of discussion about how we’d do the job without being able to drive the lumber and cement trucks right to the site. I’ve sent him a link to your site because I’m sure he’ll enjoy the building you pull off as much as I do.
