’I got heavy asthma living in the city - so we decided to move here. Since we’ve been here I don’t get any asthma - nature became my health-pill. I’m relaxed. We are totally off the grid - no landline, or cell reception -the police van doesn’t even catch his radio signal here. We are cut off from the world and like it that way - and the kids can’t bother us unnecessarily. We do go to town once a week and then they can reach us. In an an emergency the police will come out and call us. I prefer this place, here you can actually see the stars - you get the feeling that they are so near that you want to pick them like flowers.'
