Idaho Panhandle Panoramas: A Simpler Living

Greetings from the Idaho Panhandle. It’s been a little bit. We apologize. We’ve been pretty focused on things like:

  1. Not starving.
  2. Not freezing.
  3. Not getting washed down the mountainside.

Our new homestead life is getting a little simpler now in more than one meaning of the word. First, we have heat, running water, and a roof over our head. So that is generally less complicated than facing a winter of not having those things. And second, life is just simpler. We’re in the middle of nowhere. We’re in charge of our day and our schedules. And nothing that doesn’t matter to us gets in, physically or mentally.

So, as the days get shorter (and colder and snowier), we’ll be hunkering down to tackle our many and copious winter projects, and we’ll be posting a lot more regularly here on the blog again to share our experiences, advice, inventions, and philosophy. (Well, the inventions are all Winslow’s—if I were in charge of building things we’d be living in a hut made of hot-glue and duct tape, but I’ll share my recipe “inventions,” how’s that?)

We’ll also answer questions like, “Where’s Betty?” “Where’s the HPMDU?” and “Do you really eat the rabbits?” (The short answer to the last question is “Yes, and they’re spectacular.”)

Note: If you’re out there thinking, “Wait, how did you get to Idaho?” Then read this. If you’re really confused, this year-long timeline will help.

In the meantime, perhaps you will enjoy the “simple” things with us in this photo sampling of our daily Panhandle panoramas. Some are at sunrise, some at sunset, and some at whenever. They all represent both our physical and metaphysical existence right now.
