This is the perfect solution for people who just want to live their lives away from that annoying thing we call society. A former Coast Guard tower just went to auction.

The Frying Pan Tower, named for the shoals it was built to protect, is located 34 miles off the coast of North Carolina. Even though the tower is in the middle of the ocean and stands 85 feet above the water, it comes with high-speed internet, hot and cold water, and power thanks to wind and solar energy.

In the past few years the tower was turned into a bed and breakfast that is only accessible by helicopter or boat. A two-night stay would set a person back about $600.

Currently the highest bid in the auction is $42,000. The auction will continue until bidding activity falls off.
