One of my hobbies is tinkering with diesel engines (and making my own biodiesel fuel for them), especially small diesel engines. Occasionally someone will ask me where I find these engines. The answer is ebay. Although I really kind of hate ebay and am eagerly waiting for Google or some other more pro-freedom entity to absolutely destroy them (as is bound to happen eventually), for right now it is the best place to find small diesels for your fuel-efficient generator, garden tractor, motorcycle and other projects. So, until they crash and burn, here is a link to the custom search I use to find small diesel engines, new and used.
Possum living is all about living on our own terms, slowing down and kicking back and doing what we really want to be doing instead of burning ourselves out in the pursuit of what society tells us we should strive for. It is about finding easier and more interesting ways of providing what we really need, as an alternative to paying the high price in time, money and freedom that society extracts in exchange for servicing these needs; and about finding the strength to say no to those services we don't really need.
