Hallo! Ich bin ursprünglich aus Esslingen in der Nähe von Stuttgart, lebe momentan aber in ner WG in Wien. Ich hab kürzlich einen VW Bus erstanden und will jetzt einen alten Traum wahrmachen – globetrotting rund um die Erde mit meiner Freundin Nina. Mein Plan ist abgelegene Stellen zu besuchen und bin daher sehr an Off-grid interessiert. Kann mir jemand weiterhelfen wie ich meinen VW umrüste? Vielen Dank im vorraus!

Looking for family oriented people to join growing offgrid community.
by GOLDSBOROUGH on APRIL 26, 2011 - 8 Comments in I AM OFF GRID AND I WANT OTHERS TO JOIN ME

Tecoma Valley is in northeastern Nevada, in Elko County. It is 2 ½ hours from both Salt Lake City and Twin Falls Idaho, and hour and twenty minutes from Elko Nv, and 55 minutes from both the towns of Wells and Wendover. Montello is a small town in Tecoma Valley that has a grocery store, hotel, gas station, post office, small hardware store, a mechanic, and a place to buy firewood.

Land in Tecoma Valley is cheap, generally from $300 and acre to $500, but prices vary. The ground water in the area is good for drinking, and if you choose the right property you can have a water well dug under 200 feet. There is plenty of sunshine and wind. The climate is typical high desert, with some regional variation.

We are looking for people who want to be a part of a progressive yet sustainable community development project. For more information contact us via email: golds_borough@yahoo.com

Physicist with dairy farm roots living in the city seeking good reference material/books/manuals for offgrid living with the goal of moving the family back to a rural environment in a few years. Presently, I have installed solar panels and windmills, and I’m always experimenting with gardening projects. I’ll be looking to by land in north Mississippi in the near future to build an earth home in a remote location.

Global Offgrid Journalism
by NICK ROSEN on OCTOBER 31, 2004 - 1 Comment in MOBILE, OFF-GRID 101, PEOPLE

South of France, Sunday, October 31

This story was uploaded to the website using Vodafone’s new Europe-wide 3G/GPRS data service. The Vodafone card fits into my laptop in the same way as a wireless network card, but instead of hooking up with a base station in the home or office, it roams the entire Vodafone network, including other sister services around the globe.

In most parts of the world, this gives a solo freelance journalist the same communication power that used to be reserved for Reuters correspondents with heavy-duty transportable satellite uplinks. [Read more →]

Lights out for Lights, electropoop singer

Lights out for Lights, electropoop singer

Hanging out with hippies in a New Mexico hot spring isn’t the first place you might picture Canadian electropoop singer-songwriter Lights — finding inspiration for her week-old new disc, Little Machines.

The 27-year-old songstress — born Valerie Poxleitner– had a case of writer’s block due to increased expectations after the release of her 2009 debut, The Listening, her 2011 sophomore album, Siberia, and its 2012 acoustic version.

So she set off for Taos, N.M., last August to get her mojo back. [Read more →]

Alaska to be the next Florida?

Professor Camilo Mora predicts 5 BILLION deaths through global warming by 2050

Professor Mora – nothing to smile about

Climate change will make the most desirable places to live currently, uninhabitable by the middle of this Century – according to a scientific paper in Nature magazine last year, and recently picked up by the New York Times snoozepaper.

California and the Southwest will be hit by drought and wildfire. The East Coast and Southeast will suffer appalling heat waves, hurricanes, and rising sea levels.

Policy makers and city planners are calculating when the future climate will depart from its normal variability. How much time do we have to act? A decade? A century?

“If you do not like it hot and do not want to be hit by a hurricane, the options of where to go are very limited,” said Camilo Mora, a geography professor at the University of Hawaii and lead author of the paper in Nature predicting that unprecedented high temperatures will become the norm worldwide by 2047.

“The best place really is Alaska,” he added. “Alaska is going to be the next Florida by the end of the century.” [Read more →]
