Ariel, along with her husband Clay, their dogs, and some poultry, lives in a tiny house on wheels in the mountains of western Wyoming and they are working on setting up their own new little homestead. She’s been living this lifestyle since 2014 and her wonderful partner has joined her more recently. They collect and split wood for heat, source water from a gravity feed out of a natural spring, use a composting toilet, have a small solar setup, and attempt to grow, hunt, or forage as much of their own food as possible between the weather and wildlife.
Living a little over 6000 feet above sea level tucked into the mountains means it’s a somewhat harsh and cold climate with snow on the ground 8 or more months a year and potential frost, freezes, and even snow flurries all summer long. Ariel loves to garden, cook, can/freeze/ferment/dehydrate food, hike and backpack in the mountains, and photograph the tame and wild animals she is surrounded by. And share the skills she has learned with others.
Ariel returns to TSP today to discuss composting toilets. For emergencies or full time daily life. We have discussed the option a few times but we have never done a whole episode devoted to the practice. Ariel has used several styles full time for the past eight years and thought she might be able to encourage some others to give it a try and answer some questions many folks have.
