You haul it in or boil stream water or what?
I haul water in 5 gallon containers. I have to go pick up ~30 gallons today that should last for about 2 weeks.
Must be some good exercise!
A well or other source of water would be a top priority for me. Not sure where you are at but there are many potential options if you are able to purify the water yourself. If there is a river or significant amount of rain you could collect it and run it through a a big berkey.
well right now, our electricity is provided by a generator charging a battery bank. I would like to have a quieter, more renewable source of electricity, so that is our #1 priority... followed by a well.
we collect loads of rainwater for our garden though.
In some states collecting rainwater is actually illegal!
