Last week I wrote an email telling our readers how much my wife and I enjoyed the Discovery Channel show Alaska: The Last Frontier. The show follows the Kilcher family as they live a completely self-sufficient lifestyle in the Alaskan bush. They provide their own food, heat, and shelter year round. And to do it they using almost no money. The barter, grow and kill everything they need.
I asked our readers if any of them lived or would like to live like this. And fortunately for us, someone responded and sent pictures. They asked us to withhold their names, so I’ll just call them Sherry and Glen. They call their place Home Sweet Home, and looking at the pictures below, you can see why.
Sherry’s descriptions are between the pictures as well, enjoy!
“We travel by boat and from Juneau”
“There is a photo of our view and the green house and garden area.”
“This project has been a dream come true and a lot of hard work.”
“This is a picture of my husbands work. It is made from the alder on our property.”
And finally, the absolutely stunning view from their front door! Thank you so much Sherry and Glen for sending these along, we’ll be talking more to them in the future!
So what about you, would you love to live like they do? Taking what you need from the land and being self-sufficient? Tell us why or why not in the comments…
