Off-the-grid cabin, St. Francis River, New Brunswick, Canada.
Contributed by Stephen Spang, who says:
"I built this cabin in 1969 when I was 26 years old, and still own it. I bought its acre of land from a friend for $1 and a bottle of Scotch!
We have kept the camp simple, utilizing Coleman 2-burner stove for cooking, kerosene lamps for lighting, and block ice for refrigeration. We heat with a box wood-stove, and use an antique kerosene-fueled puddle burner (vented) for night time warmth when it’s really cold. We run water from the spring 300’ up the hill behind the cabin through a hose into the kitchen.
I once read that a test of having chosen a good cabin site is if returning to it is more pleasurable with each visit. This camp has that effect.”
