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're Back... Again...

42 degrees - 7:46 pm - calm, quiet night...

Just got back from a roadtrip to Lewiston, Idaho.  Here are a few photos we took along the way...

On our way to Idaho we stopped off for
 a peek at Multnomah Falls.

We saw some old rail cars so of course we just had to climb around on them.

Stopped to feed the ducks at a little pond along side the Snake River.

Snuck in a few hours of horseback riding.  The kids now want a horse!

Everyone was amazed at the hundreds of HUGE wind turbines that
run along both sides of the Columbia Gorge.

Caitlyn trying to be a wind turbine.

Our last picture of the trip - the kids and the mighty Columbia Gorge.
