I actually grew up "crunchier" than I became. When I was a kid we had an outhouse (really I mean- pooping in a bowl of clean water in the house is kind of wild .)
I still take a really fast shower because we shared solar shower bags. We had kerosene lamps and no TV. My Dad built all of the houses we lived in as a kid and one had a sod roof. We grew much of our own food. I know how to milk cows, pluck chickens, and toss hay bales.
As an adult, I still keep laying chickens and a garden, and believe that knowing where all my food comes from is very important. I have never dyed my hair and don't wear makeup or traditional deodorant. I bed share and breastfeed my toddlers. I believe little kids should be naked and dirty whenever possible. I would be an avid baby-wearer and carry my LO everywhere on my hip, but neither of my girls have been that into the confinement of any carrier for long. But I also have my differences from many who consider themselves crunchy. I love HBO and the Discovery channel and Bravo and believe some TV can be educational (and is VERY useful for parents). I have never been able to fit cloth diapering or EC into my work schedule. I believe in vaccination, but I do choose which, when, and do one at a time. I didn't know that washing my hair only once a week or keeping nice work shoes in my car so I can wear flip flops every where else was crunchy- but then, like I said, I was indoctrinated really young.
I really like the pp who said they rode a horse to the drive in. It was always my fantasy to ride a horse to the store, but we lived too far from town.
I still am comfortable in very 'primitive' living situations, but I appreciate some luxuries when I can get them. I share the fantasy of some pps to really move off the grid some day, but I think I would still want WiFi.
