We all know the feeling. There’s a big dump of snow and you know you’re going to have to get out there and shovel it.
Now imagine instead of a normal-sized driveway yours is several kilometres long.
The Ravens Reach doesn’t have to imagine it. That’s the name of a Youtube account posting videos about a family of three living off the grid in the Skeena wilderness.
Luckily they just got a snow plow. “No more almost going in the ditch coming home from work in the early hours of the morning after a snowfall. We should have a good road this winter which will be great!” explains a new video. “It’s about 2km to the bottom of our driveway.”
The family lives “off grid and are striving to be as self-sufficient as possible. We grow and preserve a huge amount of vegetables aiming to have enough for year round use, without needing to buy any.”
“We use no-dig and permaculture methods for all our growing, working with Mother Nature rather than against. We also forage and eat lots of wild greens and mushrooms,” they say.
