    Default When a man is an Island aka Grimm in 30 years

    David Glasheen, off the shore of Restoration Island, with his dog, Quasi.


    Restoration Island lies off the northern coast of Australia. The city of Cairns is about 500 miles away.


    Mr. Glasheen mostly lives a subsistence lifestyle that requires immense amounts of labor and planning. The wind turbine he used to generate electricity was damaged during a storm three years ago and still hasn't been repaired, so he uses a solar panel to power his computer and lights. He does not have a refrigerator, but has a gas-powered freezer.



    Nick Fahey, 67, lives alone in the cabin his father started building in 1939 on an island in the San Juan archipelago north of Puget Sound, in Washington state.


    The home is powered by two solar panels, which charge a few lights and help to keep his mobile phone charged. Heat, including for water, comes from burning wood, which is abundant on the property.




    Mr. Fahey's horse, Ig

    Just a little too rural for me.

    I'd make a fantastic hermit. But I'd have to figure out how to get access to my luxuries too. I'm sure it can be done.

    Lovely island but everyone knows Grimm doesn't share. The dog would have to go.

    I wonder what the first guy did in his earlier life to be able to afford the island/house/technology. It looks nice.

    Second house is a bit cluttered, but I like it. I just like cabins, though. And my husband would love to have a horse!

    That would be total heaven for me. I am such a hermit. I have to be starving or about to pee myself to leave my cave, er home office.
