4 Going Back to the X Century

Going Back to the X Century

Posted on January 16, 2014 by team

One day of a guy whose name is Pavel (24) who decided to live without modern utilities and communications, in the old Russian style. With such a purpose he went to a remote place in Sergiev Posad, Russia.

Awakening in a cold house at 7:30.

Coal, flax-seed oil and a candle make a fire miracle.

Instead of warm socks…

Such a calendar-diary will help with time orientation.

It’s the 111th day Sergey has been here.

It’s as cold in here as outside.

He needs to wam up.

There will be a lot of smoke in the house – old Russian stove didn’t have chimneys.

Luckily, none of the hens have suffered from a fox-visitor this night.

Morning milking.

Now Sergey has to split some logs.

    BIG UP as much as I agree and support this guy in what he’s doing, I doubt I would be able to stick it out for long

    This is rural life on its best. And completely normal 150 year ago.

    I think in a lot of ways, we (humans) should back track and go back to living simpler ways. I lived in the forest for a few years and it was very rewarding. It would be really good to get back to being more self sufficent. when ever you rely upon a system for fuel, water and food, you become enslaved to it. At the moment here in Australia we are watching the price of everything go up and up, and pay and employment getting less and less. I started planting a large garden again this year, so at least i can have fresh veges and herbs rather than have to pay for them at the shops (if they are even available.)
