My A Simpler Life Adventures Blog: off-grid living, woodworking, and Timberlander’s Treasures.

Welcome to my A Simpler Life Adventures Blog.

Blogging is a habit I began more than 15 years ago on a platform I quickly outgrew.

I am excited you have joined my Great Pyrenees, Maycee, and me in this chronicle featuring our off-grid living, woodworking, and Timberlander’s Treasures.

Yes, over the years the focus of my writing has varied, but so does life, doesn’t it?

Adopting simpler living by going off-grid.

In mid-2021, I began living a simpler life.

Throughout 2022, we took a leap of faith and cast away most of my urban/suburban drama and stress to make my life even simpler.
