Just basic life necessities. I think most on here could live without electricity and provide their own food if it came down to it. I know a lot of folks that would resort to crime if it came to eating or starving.

Cut my own firewood and saw up lumber from my woods.
Burn my woods and fields every spring and fall.
Invasive weed and brush control, more than just spraying dandelions. Often takes about 2 weeks or more spread out over the summer.

Lots of city folk do gardens, often times it just the scale of the garden thats different.

Drink water from a mountain stream while at work. Took my bath in a wash tub as a child. We only had cold running water in the kitchen and an outhouse until I was in 4th grade. I still love to pee off the porch.

Heck so many things. Held baby deer and carried them out of the path of the swather I was operating many times. Took my kids, 10, 11, and 12 years old camping, hiked in from the road about two miles and set up camp. Made them carry all their own gear. No phone service. Then informed the kids that I (purposely) did not pack any food and very little water, so if they were hungry or thirsty they were gonna have to figure out how to use what nature provided. I told them how to get water from the creek and boil it in the small pot i packed. I did bring a fishing rod, but no bait, so they took it and foraged for bait and then caught their own fish for dinner. Then I said thatís great, hereís my knife, go clean them. They did. And then i said oops, didnít bring anything to cook them in, guess you gotta learn to cook on a fire with zero modern utensils. And they did. I didnít help them do any of it, though I did offer small bits of guidance. We stayed two nights up there, they fended for themselves the entire time. I feel like that was good for them, might even do it again and stay longer.

Iíve done many things most city folk donít do. Iíd say the biggest thing that sets me apart from those who live in the city is my connection with and understanding of the natural world. They like to look at nature, where I am a part of nature.

Take of your hat and boots in the mud room. And wash up in the wash basin before dinner aka lunch or dinner. But now a days don't worry bout the dirt.

My mom would do that in the basement. We had 3 soap stone sinks and she would put us 3 kids in one sink with a comforter and use the other 2 sinks to wash the clothes. Then she would carry us outside when she hung the laundry on the lines. Mostly diapers!

Lived off the grid for a good many years before it was known as that-no electricity no running water.
Never considered it being "Country"or anything,just normal way to live in the bush.

Forget that fear of gravity-get a little savagery in your life.
