Well, we’re not entirely without electricity at the cabin. We do have some electrical function through batteries. But we’re still off the grid which means we have a mere fraction of the electrical output that most people use on a regular basis when connected to major electrical companies.

I had such big plans for this summer. But they all got pushed to the side in favour of swimming and lounging in the hammock and reading and playing guitar.
