Living Off The Grid


Living Off The Grid

A group for cross training and gaining (new) creative techniques for living off the grid, from underground housing and rain barrel constructions, to making your own solar panels and oregano oil toothpaste. Emergency preparedness is key.

Check out garden seeds made by Mother Nature.. Non-GMO.  All of the gardening seeds at are value priced and inexpensively packaged so we can save you money.

Something I don’t want to do is make anyone afraid. Fear isn’t useful, except as signal that something might be threatening our survival. It requires our attention for further verification and validation. If valid and verified, don’t prepare out of a sense of fear or panic. Do it from a positive, forward looking philosophy. Preparedness is neither a simple kit nor a Big Plan Up Front. It’s a mind set. Mostly, just get your survival development going and mind-set together. Roleplay some test runs with your family. Then get on with your life, without too many distractions and fear. You have done all you can.

The handy survival list (hardly complete, still needs a lot of improvements):

And a warm welcome to you, Suzy and Kathy. Feel free to post your wisdoms, experiences and stories. I'll get really started when I am back in "the middle of nowhere" mid-october.

Besides wisdoms, experiences and stories, also very welcome are new information, rumors, and complaints with recommendations. Living off the grid and learning from our own mistakes doesn't mean we can't learn from mistakes others make as well. I very much prefer to make new mistakes and share those freely. Great humour too! Humour is like oxygen for my fire :)
