"Adventures In Post-Oil Paradise," By Peter Goodchild, Countercurrents, April 27, 2009

In this article, Peter Goodchild covers seven years when he and his wife worked to become self-sufficient on four acres in a rural area near Ontario, Canada. Although he concludes that "we learned that it is possible to live with some independence from modern civilization," they depended on modern civilization for much, including a chain saw, bow saw, wood stove, building materials, wire fencing, seeds, and clothing.

After the last power blackout, such things will become unavailable, as he notes himself in another article.
