14 years ago, David quit his job at a Toronto brokerage firm and retreated to the land where he grew up to live in his 24-foot yurt full-time and fully off-grid. He has a rainwater catchment system and a hand pump for his water, solar panels and a wind turbine for power, a woodstove for heat, and a urine diverting toilet and mini bathtub in his bathroom. But he also has a couple of modern conveniences like WiFi and a propane hot water heater.
In this video, David shares why he chose this lifestyle, some of the ups and downs he’s experienced along the way, and how he earns money as a multi-day canoe tripping guide and outfitter.
