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!

My hubby and I live 100% off grid, we have lived this way since Dec 2007, we get a lot of questions about how we live, about the costs of living this way and such. I ran across this article on line a little bit ago and found that it answers many of the questions I receive. [Read more →]

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

by TIMEFORACOOLCHANGE on FEBRUARY 21, 2011 - 4 Comments in I WANT TO GO OFF GRID

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 →]

Living off grid in Alaska
by A1SHIVA on AUGUST 5, 2014 - 5 Comments in I AM OFF GRID AND I WANT OTHERS TO JOIN ME

Room and board in exchange for help in Alaska.

Looking again. Did this last fall and worked out pretty well but they moved to Anchorage for job training. Had lots of interest last fall. Keep in mind this is rustic Alaska living and winter is coming. There is still time to build a small cabin with materials on site or live in an old camp trailer I own down by the creek. Either way will take work getting ready for winter. J

I need some help with all kinds of things. Getting firewood, insulating and finishing my shop, putting tools etc where they belong, maybe build a cabin or two, getting some things ready to sell and selling them, vehicle and equipment repair and much more.

I live off grid and pretty rough but enjoy it as it is nice and simple so if you would like to try living out in the woods away from city lights this might be for you. I am not looking for a roommate so you would be living in your own shack with wood heat. Definitely nothing fancy but a place to sleep, cook and kick back enjoying the view. Lots of trails and old mining areas to explore. Hunting and fishing in the area if that is your thing. I do have toys that can be used to go play in the woods.

This is not a 8 to 5 type thing. I rarely do mornings as I enjoy sitting around watching the sun come up while making breakfast and catching up on my email etc. I like to work when I feel like it and do something else if I don’t. I have a couple of dogs that do not play well with others or even themselves now and then.

What I am looking for in you:
Won’t steal from me.
OK with not running into town all the time unless you have your own transportation as I run in about once a month in the winter for supplies and maybe once a week in the summer if I need something.
Won’t continually bother me when I am kicking back especially in the mornings. I moved out into the woods to get away from annoying things. I enjoy talking to people but enjoy not talking to them more.
Willing to work hard with me one day and take it easy the next or work on your own.
Someone who is into gardening and a greenhouse would be nice
No drugs

I do not care what sex you are, gay, lesbian, have purple hair and enough metal piercings that you have to use a large inner tube when swimming so you do not sink or how old you are or aren’t as long as you can keep up or stay ahead of me.
If you smoke it is on your own dime and not around me.
You do not need to know how to do everything as long as you are willing to learn I can show you how to do it.

I am not looking for a girlfriend or a boyfriend for that matter. It would be nice if we got along or even became friends if we are going to spend time together.

I do not have a lot of extra money floating around as I keep spending it on building materials but I will keep you from starving and try to help out with some of the other little things a person always needs. I will give you a share of some of the things that you help fix that I want to sell so you can make a little money. It would be something we would have to talk about.

Not sure if this is the way go but thought I would give it a try again. If you just want a break from the hectic and noisy city life while trying to figure out whats next in your life this might be for you. If you are wanting to learn new skills like carpentry, mechanics, operating equipment, how to build a cabin, how to live off grid this might be for you. Long or short term depending on on how we get along. More than willing to help you find your own place to do your own thing if that’s what you want once you get the hang of off gridding in Alaska. If you have been worried about taking that first step to off grid living this might be the safety net to get you started.

For fun I explore with the atvs, snowmobiles and go for road trips all over the state. You might get to see a little more of Alaska now and then. I spend some time down in the Healy area at a little cabin that I am also working on but this is in the Fairbanks Delta Junction area of Alaska. I have lived in Alaska for almost 60 years and offgrid for 8 years so am starting to get the hang of it.
