Your experience sounds a whole lot like mine, @Frank Sanoica , except I was already almost 60 years old, and living on my own when I tried doing that. I had moved up to family property in northern Idaho, and had enough money to be able to get an old used single-wide trailer and get it set up; but not enough to have lights and water put in. I also had livestock to take care of , but no way to use wood heat, and instead I had a kerosene heater. Snow was over my knees all winter long, and below zero weather most of the time. I can't tell you how glad I was when I finally got electricity, and then in another year or so, I had saved enough to sign up for the county water system. I do miss the peace and privacy of living out in the woods; but unlike you, Frank; I would NOT want to live that way again now.
