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…

67 degrees - 8:20 pm - in a period of the last 45 minutes, it has gone from blue sky with scattered white puffy clouds to windy with solid dark storm clouds...

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

Dad:  (sends email with picture of a play fort)  “Jean, do you think the kids would like something like this?”
Me:  (reply email)  “Yea, they would love something like that.”
Dad:  (calls)  “Can you meet me at 11?”
Me:  “Yea.  Why?”
Dad:  “You have to help me pick up that play fort.”
Me:  “Really?!?!  I’ll be there.”

After several hours of unbolting boards, unscrewing boards, loading boards, hauling boards, unloading boards...we now have several piles of boards just ready to be reassembled.  And boy are the kids excited!
