While the privileges of wealth can make the transition from cityscape to country kingdom a smooth one, the very nature of homesteading means the serene and simple life can be sustained without an executive income. A little planning and saving at first can get you there. If, like Coffer you plan on mixing old technologies with new (solar panels, wind turbines, internet access), cash on hand is a requirement; however, these are investments into a high functioning, yet slow paced lifestyle that I for one could get behind.
The great thing is many of us already do practice elements of homesteading no matter what our locale. But what I really want to know is how many of you would actually wander off? Do you plan on retiring to the woods or are you eager to find farmland faster still? Is the city-sacrifice to great to leave behind, or is the countryside calling?
