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.

Mobile Wildland Fire Pump...

10:00 pm - 76 degrees - calm night...

This has been a very unusual year, weather wise.  Due to the low snowfall last winter and now the extreme hot and dry weather we have been getting, we are now faced with an incredibly high fire danger season.

For the past week, Tony has been running around town finding parts to put together a mobile wildland fire pump system... and we finally got to test it out!  Very impressive!

Full power stream shoots about 102 feet.

We would rather be prepared for the worst, while hoping for the best.

{P.S. - I will do a more in depth post with more pictures once he's finished putting it all together.}
