And when you’ve met enough of those people, drastic steps must be taken.

And that’s how you end up a frickin’ hermit in the frickin’ desert.

You shouldn't ask these questions of a paranoid recluse, you know.

    After our cruising days were over on the sailboat. We bought essentially what most would call a tiny house of right at a thousand sq. ft. , seemed huge after living aboard a thirty foot boat for seven years. Most essential first addition was a six foot high solid fence , surrounding the 50 x 100 back yard ! With the house setting about 75 feet back from the road. Our little island .
    One can be reclusive , and still live within the horde .
    We’ve lived here now for twelve years in the harbour city on the Space Coast,…bet we haven’t had more than ten different folks in the place in that time.
    After all the socializing the sailing life brought with it , we too value our privacy.
    If she should pass before I do , at that point I’ll likely come back out west and fade into the desert too.

    We retired to the hermit life six years ago in the rolling landscape of NW Tennessee and haven’t looked back. Our property line is 1200’ back from a one lane county road and we’re invisible to all our neighbors. The closest is a mile away. I know my immediate neighbors and have exactly one actually friend.

    Life is good

    As creeping urbanization encroaches evermore closely on my once rural bit of the Smokies I’m looking ever more intently for quieter spaces

    Oh yeah. The older I get, the more attractive the hermit lifestyle is looking.
