We are looking for Real families – who do not talk like Jess Ventura – who live TOTALLY off the grid – away from the system – using guns rather than washing machines, solar panels and not cellphones.

Why do we have the slogan “off the grid and on the cloud?”

Because we advocate combining ancient wisdom with the latest technology.

It’s great to be on your mountain hauling your own water to your homestead and chopping logs. Its also good to be able to earn a living on the net to support your eco-lifestyle. (more…)
