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.

Another Firewood Weekend…

55 degrees - 9:12 am - foggy with a misty rain...

Last weekend my parents came up and dropped off their dump trailer so we could use it to haul down more firewood rounds.  We don’t have a big enough vehicle to pull the trailer so this weekend Tony’s dad came up with his truck to help.

Dumping the first load of cut rounds.

The guys were busy hauling down rounds of firewood...

...I was busy using the log splitter, splitting the rounds...

...and the kids were busy "trying" to help.
Jack's toy Stihl chainsaw; so he can be just like daddy.

This hopefully will be enough firewood to get us through the winter. 
Now we just have to finish splitting and stacking.


  1. I love how your "chores" are a family activity.

  2. that looks like a LOT of firewood!
