I lurk on a homesteading board occasionally, and there are some people pretty worked up about the Ebola thing. One poster said that last year she did not leave her property from November to March-she had everything delivered-and plans to do the same this year.

Honestly, even if I had a lot of property I don't think I could go that long without leaving it. Supposing that your income remained same and everything you needed could be brought to you, how long could you go without leaving the dwelling you currently live in?
If I could find a way to make money from home I would do it like ... yesterday. I am extremely introverted and leaving the house is quite stressful for me, so I would rather not do it ... unless it's to s dog thing.

With the same income and everything brought to me? Honestly I could go the rest of my life. it'd be complete validation for my agoraphobia. I could do internets FOREVER. I would never get too lonely because internets. I would NEVER HAVE TO INTERACT FACE TO FACE WITH PEOPLE.

THIS IS SOUNDING SO GOOD.

Same here, dogs and close family are all I need. But I am ok by myself as well.

Where I'm living now, it's roughly half an hour to get to town to go to Walmart/fast food and then maybe an hour and fifteen minutes to get to a city with malls and other stores.

I'm leaving the property roughly once a week to get groceries and necessities. Sometimes going out midweek to get smokes or beverages. Will probably be like every 3 months or so that I go to the city. I'm enjoying it...it's probably not good for my social interactions but it is kind of nice.

Good internet is a must though, I get a bit stressed when it's out! There is lots of land here and I'm busy :).

In this location? Not much over a week, small house small yard- boredom would overtake me

If I was on the property I'm looking at in Nova Scotia? A very long time, it's got acreage and my parents and brother and his family both live very close (one next door, one two homes down) so they'd visit
