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.

Saturday Evening Post...

51 degrees - 3:34 pm - raining...

A small glimpse into our lives as we live off-grid… sort of like eves dropping.  It may be a quote or a conversation; funny, sweet or sad; but it will always be true.  We will see if it resonates with you…


Hubby:  (walks into the house) “The elk have started to bugle.  Just heard one.”
Me:  “I love listening to the elk bugle!”  (we both walk outside)
-----silence-----
Me:  “I’m going back inside.”
Hubby:  (comes back into the house a few minutes later)  “You just missed the elk bugling again.  That means fall is definitely not very far away.”  (opens a window) “Listen.”
-----silence-----
Me:  “I give up, I’m going to bed.”
Hubby:  (chuckles)
