Some people may not know what off-the-grid or off-grid means, so here it is --- The term off-the-grid or off-grid refers to living in a self-sufficient manner without reliance on one or more public utilities.
Off-grid living is no longer a one room log cabin in the woods. It's energy independency. You don't have to rely on utility companies, you create your own power. Today, there are more than 180,000 off-grid homes in the US.

9:04 pm - 49 degrees outside - today was another gorgeous fall day on the mountian, not to hot and not to cold...
This morning as we were eating breakfast, we watched five deer feeding in the backyard. The afternoon was made even better when we had a visit from my parents, grandmother, aunt, sister, brother-in-law and niece. After lunch the afternoon was spent cutting firewood... LOTS of firewood.
We borrowed our neighbors log splitter,
it makes splitting firewood much quicker and easier.
