Joseph Oregon is one of those Towns where it pays to be handy. It’s not so easy to find that high paying job in paradise, but who needs the big money?
The natural beauty of the Area attracts tourists, but like most small towns at the base of beautiful Mountains, you often make your own job, or you have two or more, or.. you are the minority and fortunate to have skills in an area where there’s ongoing demand, the later is Dave 🙂
On the skirts of Town, you might find that perfect piece of property, but Power might be a problem, and many of us think it a good problem as we are less likely to have neighbors who would vote for city sewer, sidewalks, and the banning of cows and horses who poop in the pasture.
Small towns are breeding grounds for the DIYer mentality, it is out of necessity people there learn to be more self-sufficient. Joseph…. enjoy it while you can.. they’ll discover you soon enough.
Fire up Google Earth, and look at where Joseph is located. It looks like a great destination for a road trip to me. I bet you’ll find good food here too 🙂
Here’s a little YouTube clip sent to me by Dave and Teresa, I expect to share more about how they live, and how gifted Dave is when it comes to DIY 🙂
I’ve said it before, and it’s all so true.. “The measure of a man’s off grid power efforts is best measured by how happy his wife is. If she’s happy….. you earn a Gold Star. Since Teresa dedicates this video clip to ‘Dave, her loving ‘talented’ Husband’.. it pretty much says it all.
Here’s a short video, small hydro with 400 feet of head!
