The Mother Earth News Fair in Asheville, NC was this past weekend. We decided to attend this event rather than the one as Seven Springs this year. I'll try to get a blog entry up in a few days detailing the experience.
I spent the yesterday evening and night visiting a friend who is house-sitting an off-grid cabin in the next county over. It was a good experience, and I hope to spend more time there over the coming weeks. I found that I didn't miss the lack of electricity at all, although I realize that its much easier to spend a single night without electricity than live that way every day. I need to build my own off-grid cabin that I can visit anytime I want.
I plan to get outside this evening and work on some tasks that I've fallen behind on. It'll be nice to get back into the swing of things, assuming the weather cooperates. We had a heavy frost this morning, and just a couple of days ago we actually had snow. Its back into the 70s today, though, which is where I wish it would stay.
