While I don’t see us settling down anytime soon, I do want to have a few (20+) acres to call my own when we find that perfect spot that we never want to leave. When that happens, I want to live the way that I see fit. I don’t want anyone trying to tell me where I can and cannot poop (humanure anyone?) or that I have to be tied to the electric grid. As long as I am not hurting anyone, anything or myself, it’s no ones business or right to interfere with my choices.

I ran across this News clip today about a 72 year old man who is being forced off of his own 36 acres for not having electricity and plumbing. I don’t know all of the details. I don’t know if the ordinances were in place when he purchased the land or how long he has been there, but I can only assume that this is happening because someone wants to develop on his land. You be the judge.

  1. That is so wrong. Leave the poor guy alone! I wonder where he is now… 🙁

    I totally agree with you. The sad fact is though, that once you buy a piece of property, even if you technically own it outright, the government still owns your ass. Any local state or federal government bureaucracy can impose laws, taxes, they feel are right, and force you to comply. From the color of your house to what size tank your crapper has, there are laws that we are all forced to comply with. What are you gonna do, start a Revolution? They’re betting you won’t.

    Yep, totally wrong.

    We left an apartment because the HOA for the surrounding buildings, not ours, objected to our rig in the parking lot. It did get us off our butts and onto the road, but the options for settling down to a simple life don’t appear to be growing.
