Romance vs Reality

No more tread mill, making due and living within financial means, feeling as free as possible in this hectic world. Now if you have tons of money then off grid may simply mean you substituted solar for electric power and still have the modern world at your fingertips. The reality to off grid living is perseverance, ingenuity, tenacity, and self-motivation as well self-reliance. Continue reading Off Grid Living!

Thanksgiving off grid workshop making candles!

Thanksgiving off grid workshop making candles!

Thanksgiving off grid workshop making candlesLiving off grid for most means solar power for light to see when darkness falls and solar means sun. But when living in norther or southern latitudes the sun does not visit long and is often obscured by snow, rain, or a few clouds. We can not rely totally on solar and so we become creative to stay out of the dark. On this Thanksgiving day we went to the office/workshop to make candles. No, for us this is not work but only the beginning of Thanksgiving day in the mountains of northern Idaho.  Follow along for our tip on how to create your own light.

Cooking Alternatives Off Grid!

Cooking Alternatives Off Grid!
Host: Denob “The Prepared Canadian”

Cooking Alternatives Off GridOver the last couple of years, I have had the chance to try a lot of different off grid cooking options. From home made solar ovens to open fire methods and everything in between, I found out a lot about what works and what doesn’t. Actually, almost everything I have tried, does have a use, but there is no one appliance or trick that will work for everything…at least not well. Continue reading Cooking Alternatives Off Grid!

The self sufficient home!

The self sufficient home.
DJ Cooper “Surviving Dystopia

The self sufficient homeThis week on Surviving Dystopia I would like to discuss the art of self sufficiency!

While to one person it might simply mean that they do not need assistance to live. They can do it all by themselves, not needing to rely on outside assistance. Whereas to another it could be a completely off grid existence. Continue reading The self sufficient home!
