For today’s show David interviews Lamar Alexander (of prepper fame, not the former Tennessee Governor.) of Simple Solar Homesteading and author of many books on tiny house living as it relates to being more self-sufficent.
When life threw Lamar some lemons, he made more than lemonade, he refined the recipe and then decided to share it with others.
What Lamar did, was design and build a small off grid cabin for under $2000.00. He lives there full time, and has learned to thrive off of a simple (but not spartan) lifestyle. Mr. Alexander is quick to point out that he lives a full life, and does not want for anything, has as much free time as he desires, and by developing multiple streams of self-reliant income coupled with a simple lifestyle has managed to save enough to live on for an indefinite period.
I really admire Lamar and his work, and have bought some of his books on sustainable living. You can learn more about him and his designs at his website www.simplesolarhomesteading.
The show is scheduled for Monday at 10pm central time at this link.
If you cannot listen on Monday, you can always download the podcast for listening at your own leisure.
