Thanks Joe! The technology is all there. Most of us just don't realize how well we can live with less. Educating people about what's possible is more challenging than setting up the actual tech and methods to live more freely :)

I’m curious, how do you do laundry in this situation?

Good question Dustin! Three steps:

1. Using a manual washer like this: https://laundry-alternative.com/products/the-wonderwash

2. Using natural soaps that are safe to be released in water into the soil

3. Hanging clothes on a line for solar drying, or hanging in the tent by the wood stove

It's cheap, simple, and it works. It's a little slower, but you're not paying thousands for the systems. You'd end up working a 9-5 to pay for the dryer / washer / plumbing. I'd rather have my laundry take a bit more work :) Listening to a podcast while doing chores like this is my speed.
