Modern homesteading is not for everyone. Every day when you commute for your job you can hear complaints. At least one fellow commuter will be mad about the ferry service. Or they’ll be nervous about power bills or the roads on a local mountain. Or the weather. Did you really think through your move to the country? Leaving any big city is a major change, and Big Apple makes an even bigger impact. A move to the country and out of NYC could be a huge culture shock for those of you who are new to this idea.
