Ever since I was younger I have enjoyed to go to our Grandpas new home for the weekend, back when I was a child growing up I would consistently look forward to the day where our Grandpa would come by our new home in her old pickup truck and take myself and others out to her farmhouse.
The thing I enjoyed the most about going to her home was how uncommon it was from mine; My parents made plenty of money and made sure that the home showed that. We had state of the art cooling system unit and radiant heated flooring. All of the newest technology gadgets from the Heating and A/C field to the gaming field we had it, even though almost everyone would kill to be able to live in a arena like that it didn’t believe right to myself and others for some reason. Out at our Grandpas new home in the woods though, it was literally the opposite of our homelife. Instead of the latest and greatest Heating and A/C equipment, all there was at her new home was an old fireplace. I would help our Grandpa cut the firewood while we were in the Wintertide and she would also teach myself and others how to keep the fire going through the evening. When it came to being the one in charge of keeping the home warm it made it believe so much more rewarding instead of at our parents house. The experiences of residing the old university way with our Grandpa has myself and others now residing off the grid just like him. I don’t need the fancy Heating and A/C device like our parents, just a well built home and some firewood.
