Can’t find the thread. I’ve heard that lots of folks have cashed in on their GTA real estate and moved north. Many have returned to civilization.
Issues: Loneliness. Especially in cold season. Bugs. Shopping - all kinds, food, hardware/lumber etc. Fuel. Emergency and ongoing health care. Internet. Cellular service. Potable water. Oh and did I mention bugs. Ridiculous for 2 months potentially. Electricity is important. Solar and wind is fine for lights and radio. But when you need to run a motor you need lots of amps. When we bought our 4 season cottage, that we’d eventually retire to, I was reminded of these issues. Was good advice. Good luck.
