Living offgrid for more than a decade, ask me a question
My wife and I have been living off the grid for about 12 years, now. We have 2 sons, one is 4, the other is 1.

We built our homestead from scratch, house and all. This is the second off-grid homestead we've built in the last decade.

Our power comes from solar and wind. Our water is from rain catchment. We raise most of our food from gardens, chickens, rabbits, pigs, etc.

Let me know if you have any questions or comments.

If the higgs boson ends up being the gravity particle in the same way the electron is the E/M force particle, what will be the first implementation of gravity control? Will it be flying cars, hanging gardens, or chicks whose breasts never sag?

You can lease land and have the right to build a home on it worked into the contract. Not exactly the smartest thing to do, but it would keep you off the grid.

 Quoting: lionhound


We have 10 acres, and we grow most of the animals food here, and also gather weeds and grasses from our local area (mowing orchards, etc) for feed inputs.

Re: Living offgrid for more than a decade, ask me a question
I'm not off the grid but can make do without power. Wood heat is my main heat already. Also in the outbuildings. Have gravity feed water. Have wood cook stove with water jacket. Propane hot water. Tank kept full all the time, big one. Been thinking about chickens. Are you buying feed or are you doing somthing else. I guess my main concern would be what to do in the winter for them if the feed runs out? Do tell.

But you maintain a web-page, so you are not truly off-grid?

I watched the video. These folks have access to CCD (charge coupled devices) and have Aussie accents. I think we should monitor their progress using the internet until we know their true intentions in the forespoken USA-canuckistani war.
