Now here is question that I probably get asked more than any other. A lot of times it's not from strangers either, but people that I know and just seem to keep on checking that I haven't changed my mind on my lifestyle decision.
My usual answer is:
"If I could make my money without going onto the pavement, I would be very happy".
And that is actually my long term goal. Not that I don't like going into the world of paved streets and commercialization. I just want to be able to go because I want to and not because I have to.
I used to think that getting to the grocery store for food was going to be a real pain, but in reality ti turned out not to be much different from when we lived in a college town. I would call my wife up and say "honey, I'm getting ready to head on home." and she would replay "Great! stop at the store on your way and pick up some milk & eggs".
What I have really come to miss, much to my surprise, is KFC. Who would have guessed that having to drive an hour and a half one way for a bucket of original recipe would make me want it so bad? :-)
