....I mean like for cooking/music/lighting etc
we played cards.
actually maybe longer when i was a kid and we lived in the mountains.
I really like it. I don't have the self control but I'd love to live for a couple of years without home access to TVs and stuff. It would be a good opportunity to read stuff I want to read and write music and stuff.
I lived without TV for about a year and it was good cos I did do other stuff
in the summer of 2003. Cooked on a BBQ and gas stove. Got up when it was light went to bed when it got dark and only listened to music on the car stereo. It was awesome.
OK maybe I should have been stricter in my qualifications, but all the same that is good
and an mp3 player. And several lighters.
But come on.
I started this thread partly because a few people seemed to indicate I should be ashamed not to have washed for two weeks..................SO I wanted to point out I had no electricity (or gas stove, or lighter, or mp3 or cassette player or any batteries, or any artificial light for 2 weeks.)
And I was proud of it and I enjoyed it
(It would have been better if there were others too though) and from the sound of it some of you would also quite enjoy it (albeit with a few little comforts like music) (admitedly I did have some blow with me and matches that Id waxed)
(I can live without electrictiy but not my shallow vanity of other peoples opinions of me)
I just don't think many people will have lived without a gas stove at least. :)
saying I couldn't BBQ on fire! I must win! 3 months?
longer than me, and that is good, cos it gives you enough time to get into another rhythm of life, which is really significant. I wish everyone could try this.
I've never slept so well as that 3 months. Loads of fresh air and good food. I wanted to do it forever, but I think it would have been chilly come winter.
I will definitely do it at some point. Attempting tp live off renewable energy alone would be a good compromise, I think.
I didn't mind. It was during the day so I assume I read instead.
between 1648 and 1699.
he was talking to me!

NIGEL OFF EASTENDERS
i recommend everyone throws their tv out of the window
three of the best months in my life
3 of the best in MY life. What did you do?
Lived rough in a camp we had to build from scratch on the edge of a forest. It was fantastic. I didn't miss anything (except I didn't take enough Guided by Voices with me!)
I managed alright, actually. Luckily it came back on and I could watch Quantum Leap unimpeded.
