on To The Woods
Fantastic interview - thank you! David and Evelyn are very inspiring. We really enjoyed hearing their story.
We're only just over 3 years into our "living in the woods" adventure (in the Coast Range foothills, outside of Eugene), and are still learning every day. We work hard, but one thing that stood out to us in the interview was (I believe it was) Evelyn's use of the the word "luxurious" - that is exactly how we feel about our life here. We get to be outside for a good portion of each day, interacting with both the wild and domesticated plants and animals that share this land with us. And we get to eat the best, freshest food - food that in a store would cost more than we could afford - and know that it comes at least in part from our own labor. We feel very blessed.
Having spent most of our adult lives in New York City, it's a big change - with a big learning curve. But neither one of us would go back to city living.
Thanks again for having David and Evelyn on the show. Can't wait to read Evelyn's book!
