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.

Morning Hike...

56 degrees - 9:30 am - calm chilly morning...

The kids and I went out for a quick morning hike around the main driveway loop.  You may be thinking that walking the main driveway loop isn’t really a hike, but believe me it truly is!  And boy oh boy are the views spectacular!!!

Kids had to make a detour to check out (aka climb all over) the fallen tree.

Another detour to check out a side trail.

The past several weeks, when I wake up in the mornings all I hear are chainsaws running or the “beep beep” from the yarder pulling logs up.  They are logging a ridge to the east of us, and this is where all the noise has been coming from...

Kids had to make yet another detour to check out this monster stump.

This is where the rrrrRRrrrrRrrr beep beep rrrRRRrrrrRR's are coming from.

This is the view from the top of our personal
driveway.  You can kind of see a few of the
loggers vehicles at the top of the clearing.
Now that we’re back from our quick morning hike, and the kids have been successfully gotten their wiggles out, we are heading into town to the library.  This is our last week of freedom until school starts, and we’re going to try and make the most of it!
