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.

We are constantly being told how gorgeous our place is but how crazy we are for living so far out… in a forest… and off-grid!

Yes, we know we are crazy, and yes we do have our down days, but we truly love it out here.

I also love hearing feedback from those of you who read and follow my blog.  Here is a comment that I recently received and wanted to share it - it made me smile.  It's nice to know that there are people out there who truly get what we are trying to do.

“I realize you lose some of the conveniences but you are so lucky to be able to live a life style that will enlighten your children about what living is really about and instill values in their daily lives.  AWESOME.” ~ Anonymous
