Changing my way of thinking

Modern vs. off grid lifestyles As most of you know, I have recently been given an opportunity to move to the Ozark Mountains, to live with my eldest son on his homestead, and am in the process of preparing to do so. I got a text from my son last night asking if I had good winter bedding to take with me when I move down there, or would he need to get some for me. My response was yes, that I have my electric blanket I was planning on taking with me.
