I've been spoiled. This is me, last morning in the luxury house outside of Woodstock, VT. Tuesday morning, July 20th. I really like my 12 year old boy jumped out of bed going to school hairdo that I have. Thanks Dave for taking this picture. Let't just say that right now if I were to take a picture it would be a little bit different. My hair is stuck down to my head, covered by my used to be white College of Ag hat. My skin is a dark color, not just because of the farmer's tan I've been getting but because I'm covered in dirt and such. I've got blisters on my feet and my Chaco tan lines are really great. I've been pulling weeds, picking many berries, building compost bins, jumping in the cold pond, and falling asleep to the sound of rain on my tent. I've been going to sleep when the sun goes down and waking shortly after it comes up. This is where I've been camping. In the middle of the forest of New Hampshire in a nice clearing in the woods.
I'm wooffing it at the Cold Pond Community Land Trust. There are six different families that live here on the land trust. They are all amazing people that are living very environmentally friendly. The majority of them implement composting toilets and are completely off the grid. They have solar panels and very simple houses, most of them built by themselves. They are very inspiring to me as they grow the majority of their food, raise livestock, and share with the community members. I have had play dates with several adorable children. It is such a joy to be able to share life with new people even for just a short amount of time.
