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.

Relaxing At The Campsite...

69 degrees - 10:22 pm - scattered clouds...

The past two weeks have been very crazy.  We have been so busy with other stuff that we haven’t even gotten to work on the house at all.  This evening we were finally able to slow down, sit back, and relax a bit. 

The past few days it has been in the high 80’s, and when it gets this hot out we like to head down to the campsite where it is a bit cooler.  Tonight was the perfect end to a very crazy week.  Kids played in the creek, cooked hot dogs over a campfire (which I believe is the only way to cook hot dogs!), listened to a thunder storm pass nearby and spent some time with a few family and friends.

the boys found a shedded snake skin

even though it's in the high 80s,
you can never go wrong with a campfire!

the girls are checking out the creek

the "cooler" - keeps the drinks ice cold

gotta end the evening with roasted marshmallows
