New comer at this. Ounce a month we have supplys , food , mail flown to us . could go 6 months at a time , but ounce a month is more normal. Computer age helped us . The world is at our finger tips now. Hate going to town. Ounce a year is enough. Retired .. But not dead. Wilderness is the life, but live like a king all the same. Mix new tech and old, works for wife and I. Here since 85. & no we don't sit back & watch the world go by, or hold the end of a bar up. we live here and its work every day . Just not doing it for the bank, but for us. Plus we do not get sick way out here-- away from germ folks..No colds , flues & the like..Take care Yah Hear !
