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.

Our Fourth Year Living Off-Grid...

1:14 pm - 58 degrees - mostly cloudy, windy...

This weekend marks our fourth year living off-grid...and we’re slowly continuing to work on our dream.




















These past four years have been by no means an easy feat.  It has required a ton of self-discipline, determination, hard work and sacrifice.  Sometimes living the “simple life” isn’t so simple.  Tasks are harder or take longer.  But in the end we’re gaining self-sufficiency and a greater sense of satisfaction and accomplishment.
