Prepping within reasons: Inspirational videos

It has been a few days since the last time, but today we are going to continue discussing prepping within reasons. The idea behind the name originates from the entrepreneur Elon Musk, who said that he is an "environmentalist within reasons," because hardcore environmentalists tend to have a too constrained lifestyle. It is the same with hardcore preppers. Their lifestyle is nothing I want to live!

Today, while browsing through the endless streams of the Internet, I found a YouTube series called "Going Off Grid." The series examines how 180,000 Americans a year are choosing to live entirely disconnected from our modern Internet-focused world in pursuit of a more sustainable, simple lifestyle. So they are not necessarily prepping.

In one of the videos, the reporter interviews pro-snowboarder Mike Basich. He has built himself a 225 square foot (21 square meter) home in the middle of his 40 acre snow covered property. There, he is snowboarding while being chased by his dog. I don't think I would have wanted to live in that house 24/7, but maybe a few weeks a year...
