My wife and I recently got an amazing deal on a gorgeous, mossy, wooded acre in lower norther Michigan with a little, old-but-in-good-shape single wide on it. It's not currently completely off grid (hooked into the electric system, but well, septic, and propane otherwise). It's not a good candidate for solar (see: wooded), but I would love to get a windmill one day. Tomorrow is my last day at work and I will be a full-time homesteader going forward, though my wife will still commute to work. I'm ecstatic, besides that moving makes me a scatter-brained emotional wreck.

In my dream of dreams..the first thing i have to decide is where? Since i prefer rainy weather and fall it will have to be way up North...I lived in Alaska for 5 years but not off grid ...Alaska can be harsh but it's so beautiful there...I lived between Palmer and Wasilla when Palmer town was literally i block long..now it's a big town...I think further up the Fairbanks highway might be perfect..Willow maybe.....A little town but not too small just off the highway..be careful of living on a big hill..My house there just about perfect but it would get real interesting trying to make it up the hill after a snowfall...I learned. This time the topography needs to be flat with a little spring on the land...of course everybody is looking for the same thing there.. :)

Rainy eh, there's always Oregon.
That's one of the major things I think of when looking back to a student exchange program episode in the Willamette Valley. It rained all day, every day! I got so depressed, bailed on it by Second Semester. Packed up and drove back to Chicago. Cared not that it was cold with a foot on the ground, so happy to see the sunshine.
Depression went away immediately, and I re-enrolled at the College from which I had exchanged. Wasn't up for anymore experimental excursions even though studying Volcanology. I did it from the safety of the MW.

they call Alaska "Land of the Midnight Sun" and they are not kidding..in the summer it's still light outside at 11pm. Alaska is famous for growing super sweet peas, carrots, potatoes and huge cabbage...this idea would be interesting to try, altho it wouldn't work in Alaska where it can be dark at noon and an average of -10 but this would definitely work in (most) the lower 48
