Homesteading: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly – Season 1, Episode 1

John Elden Gibbons and Teresa S. Landry introduce themselves and talk about their experiences of living deliberately, creating a freedom lifestyle, building a homestead, and living off-grid. This is about the good, the bad, and the ugly that goes along with independent living, and a journey that is filled with ups and downs. Throughout this podcast – and future episodes – John and Teresa discuss the aspects of “back to the earth” living that they want to maintain as they move forward and the aspects they want to move beyond and never have to deal with again.  This is about deliberately building the ideal life and acknowledging that some overly-romanticized notions of the simple life are not feasible in modern society. Also discussed will be the challenges of earning a living while living “simple,” and the plain truth that living  simple is very time-consuming.
