I’m toying with the idea of adding my #smallhouse ##TinyHouse to Airbnb to give people the chance to experience #off-grid, #alternative energy living for a few days and get to know the Taos New Mexico area. The house will still be for sale, but with any reservations guaranteed.DSCN1888-001

What do you think about the idea. Have you ever been curious about off-grid living? Or tiny (small) home living?

The Taos NM area is the home of alternative energy and alternative building techniques. my small house is only a few minutes from Greater Earth, the earthship community. It’s 30 minutes from the art colony of Taos and about 45 minutes from the famous Taos Ski Valley.DSCN7093

Let me know what you think. Help me decide. Thanks, John

Lately I’ve been escaping for most of winter. It’s not that winter is bad, but I’m not getting younger and the possibility exists to get away to warmer climes. So, I do it. I never had any problem getting to the Casa in winter. A couple of times I had to walk a little. Once, coming up the small hill, it was too slippery for the almost bald front tires on my front-wheel-drive Ford Taurus to make it. I parked and walked to the house, the equivalent of a couple of blocks. The next morning I drove back to town, bought new tires and didn’t have any more problems getting in. Another time the snow was so high the Taurus pushed it ahead like a snow plow until it piled so high I couldn’t go any further. I had to stop at the beginning of my driveway. No problems after that.

I’ve had 4-wheel drive, but never needed to change into 4-wheel mode. Mostly, over the years, I’ve had front-wheel-drive and no problems.

Still, the warm weather elsewhere feels good.

Here’s to escape!
