This blog is about our travels in our solar powered "Airstream" and living off grid, in our passive solar home, near Bancroft, Ontario, Canada.

Finally we have snow. Not enough to snowshoe on but enough to get the bobcat out and clear the driveway ................. twice in one day.

We missed our dump run last week for a variety of reason so when Friday arrived (dump here is only open Friday to Monday) we needed to go regardless of the weather.

It actually looks better and feels better than the photos show but that doesn't mean you can disregard caution and fly down our roads. Do that and your vehicle will park itself in places you don't want to be.

We took our time, pulling a trailer full of drywall cutoffs, plastic, cardboard and regular, rich ------ garbage. I thought we would be alone, but there were others, some pulling trailers unloading as we pulled in to wait our turn.

After stopping for groceries we headed back home, still snowing but as pretty as ever.

No this isn't home, we've graduated and moved from living in 175 square feet to a non-movable 2,100 square feet off grid passive solar home. This summer thanks to family and friends we finished the interior and moved in just a few weeks ago.

We lived in our airstream for two years and will use it for summer vacations once we know all systems in the house are working properly.

Our bunkie looks like a little doll-house tucked back in the woods.

Hope everyone is healthy and looking forward to getting together.

Safe travels.
