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.

Weekend Update…

48 degrees - 10:50 am - blue sky and sunshine...

What a wonderful weekend.  We had gorgeous weather and got a lot accomplished.

The kids and I headed to the beach property for an end of the year clean-up weekend.  We had to winterizing everything since we won't be back until next year.

Took a little break to go and enjoy a walk on the beach.

Tony spent the weekend at home kind of doing the same thing.  He also flagged out a path where he wants to dig a trench for the water lines that will go from the well to the holding tanks, which are near the propane tanks and generator house.

And the chickens… they set a new record with 8 eggs in one day.  I think one of the girls might have an identity crisis and thinks it’s a duck.  The eggs that come out of her are HUGE double yolkers!  Anyways, with the chickens laying basically a bakers dozen ever two days, I currently have over four dozen eggs in the fridge.  Yikes!  I need to either start doing some serious baking or pawn them off onto family and friends.

Check out the size of that egg!  It's HUGE!


  1. Holy batman... that is one HUGE egg!! I say bake if you can, and if not, start selling them! The chickens can pay for their own feed. :)

  2. Great picture of you and the kids and wow that egg is huge!
