Do your needs keep your nose to the grindstone? Do you feel like you are a captive to the 9 to 5 lifestyle? Do you feel like it is a treadmill from which there is no hope of rescue? Do you dream of a life without bosses, in which you would grow or make everything you would need for living? Like to live out in the clean air and good country like the pioneers did on their homesteads? Have you wondered if it would really be possible and practical to live in a totally self-sufficient way like this? Image: Living a self-sufficient life out in the country. Living in a house you built yourself; growing your own food; raising some chickens, geese, rabbits, goats and perhaps some other livestock; selling some of your produce for pocket cash. Out of the rat race with no bosses to put up with, no frustrating commutes in rush hour traffic, no rent payments to make. Q. To what extent is the above image a practical possibility? To what extent is it just an impractical, unachievable pipe dream? What would be the drawbacks to this kind of life? How idyllic would such a life be?Select from the following:
