I live on a remote Alaska homestead with my wife and sons. We live a subsistence lifestyle at least as much of one as can be done in today’s world.
When we moved on our homestead it was raw land, which we cleared, built our first home, and put in a large garden. I makes a living guiding, running a remote trapline, and writing a few articles on homesteading & other outdoor skills.
Two years ago I was appointed by the Secretary’s of Interior and Agriculture to the Southcentral Regional Advisory Council to the Office of Subsistence Management. The advisory councils meet twice a year to hear testimony to assist the Office of Subsistence Management determine Customary & Traditional rights on federal lands in Alaska, advise on subsistence seasons & quotas, along with other relevant subsistence issues.
