As a child I used to have this old copy of Robinson Crusoe that used to belong to my father. The story always intrigued me and I’ve red it over and over. What I liked the most about this story was how Robinson took care of himself. He build his own house and grew his own food. This whole sense of freedom and independence is what attracted me to this self-sufficient way of life.

The situation Robison Crusoe found himself in is very rare and extreme, so I wanted to figure out how to life self-sufficient in a modern world.
