Living off the grid: SUPER FUN

You know that fantasy you have where you move to Maine, go off the grid, and raise your children to know what nature and good old American values are like? Well, one family is living that fantasy, and writing about it for The New York Times . All summer, Craig and Susannah Hopkins Leisher have been living with their three sons in a cabin in the Maine woods. They're not cut off from civilization: They have laptops, and Craig works remotely for the Nature Conservancy. But they do things like cut their own wood, go canoeing for hours, teach their kids about dirt, learn how to start fires, and pick local berries. It’s basically the fantasy of anyone who grew up on Laura Ingalls Wilder. Jealous yet? Well, they just moved to their "winter house" … we'll see how off-the-grid living sounds when it's freezing out.
