Our Dry Compost Toilet & the Humanure Method

One of the biggest problems off gridders have to figure out is how to go to the bathroom. After some traumatizing experiences with a camp toilet, we decided to try a dry compost toilet and we love it. This how to video explains our dry compost toilet system and the humanure method. And since this is a video about POOP, I thought I’d better make it goofy and funny. Enjoy!

Control Burning Our Field

For the past three years since we bought our property we’ve battled the mess of a field behind our cabin. When this land was clearcut 15 years ago, loggers piled up unwanted wood in landing areas and a that’s what we look at through our back windows. Mountains of rotting wood have left the field unusable, inaccessible and full of snakes and other varmints. We have slowly whittled away at the wood over the past three years with controlled burns and sweat. This how-to video shows our most recent burn and also includes some great wildlife pics captured on our wildlife camera.
