My friend Marianne left Intel to move to a place “off the grid” in the coast range mountains, and is thoroughly enjoying the nature and solitude. But since I convinced her to start a blog, to stay in touch, and also generally to stay connected, she’s having DSL installed. Her house runs on generators and battery power, and is truly “off the grid” – 11 miles from the nearest paved road, yet she’s having broadband installed to stay connected with the world, and share her writing. What a geek!
Marianne, you’ll have to share the installation details once you get hooked up, and everything gets settled. And pictures are a must, of course! I’m especially interested in finding out what power solution you ended up going with.
Update: Marianne now has DSL! Yay! No photos yet, but she’s online.
