Just curious if anyone on this forum had any 1st hand experience in living like this.
I like to hear peoples stories of building a home and/or life in a remote/wilderness area,I have read stories about people building nice homes in areas that are not even accessible buy a car.
I read a article one time about a man and lady who had built a home in the western(Montana/Wyoming area ?) USA,they were like 50 miles from the nearest road and built a wonderful home from scratch and raised there children in the wilderness,I am also fascinated by homes that people have built that are accessible buy motor vehicle but miles from the nearest town etc. It always makes for some relaxing reading to read about these type of things.

I don't live there now, but we once (for about three yrs) lived on a 10 acre tract in the middle of a National Forest. I loved it, but my wife and kids called it "The Trauma Center". It was an absoulte pita to get in and out of. The US Forest Service didn't help any either.

Unfortunatly I don't qualify yet. DH and I are still stuck in a growing community that is doing it's best to squeeze us out. Our little piece of property is slowly getting surrounded by new development. We do have property (9+ acres)in Western Washington that is 17 miles from the nearest "stop & shop" and another 5 miles or so to town. Our dream is to put up a house, or mobile home in the near future and make it our permanent residence. We go up a couple times a year, have a small one room cabin on it now, and it's absolutly heaven. Can't hardly wait to find a job up there and make it home.

We'e too close to town to qualify as wilderness but we took a train trip to Seattle years ago - at the top of a long grade, the train made a brief scheduled stop at a small town in Eastern Washington or Idaho somewhere - the town had kinda narrow streets, NO cars and they got everything by train. I've often wondered what that would be like - maybe somebody knows the town's name -- or somebody's from there :)
