Technology helps to stay connected, but social interaction is important, especially during the winter months. Keep busy and avoid cabin fever.

There's going to be stores to get groceries and those kind of items. Order what you can online. I've never understood why people make trips to WalMart to save money. It costs 54 cents a mile to drive an average car when factoring in all expenses, so you're really not saving much by making that extra trip.
I've never felt bored.
When you're surrounded by nature, human presence takes a back seat.
