About us: Anna Hess and Mark Hamilton spent over a decade living self-sufficiently in the mountains of Virginia before moving north to start over from scratch in the foothills of Ohio. They've experimented with permaculture, no-till gardening, trailersteading, home-based microbusinesses and much more, writing about their adventures in both blogs and books.

Please remember to take your generator inside or lock it to something when not at home. We use a generator at our property in Meigs county for camping and always keep it chained to something or otherwise they tend to grow legs and walk away.

Long time reader,have read you blog from start to present.First welcome to Ohio.Second you better tie that generator down reaaaal well.Not just a chain through the handle they will saw the handle into to get it.Maybe two anchors in the ground and a tight chain over the top of the generator.Not trying to scare you but but they are a popular item.Hope you like it here.
