I've been entertaining some thoughts about moving into the boonies of Canada. If not permanently, then just by buying land in some place like the Northwest Territories and living in a cabin and fishing. So I did my research, started looking at real estate, and I find that I can buy land on the cheap. In those cases, they aren't always connected to the power grid. When I find that there is power and water, the amount of land available drops. So now, I'm looking at this place that's about 30 grand, totally out there in the boonies, has a fishing stream, a well, some electricity. Has a telephone line hook-up, and I could probably run a satellite internet hook-up. If I take a mortgage out on the place, I shell out $350/month, and can do this while I live in New York city. If the US collapses or the dollar goes to crap, I figure I can go live in the boonies off of fish. How insane am I, and how realistic is this plan? Canadians, please chime in. Your country is beautiful, your land is cheap, and you don't have idiots wrecking your currency as bad as our government is wrecking ours. Why should I not be in Canada?
