Hunter, My name is Brian I have two children . Single father of 2 children 16 and 11 . Me and me kids have discussed this topic and prepared for living off the grid. We have build our wind turbines and 12 volt power systems. As well grow our own garden , can and preserve. I bow hunt and fish to help stock the freezer .However , the one concern is I earn a living off the internet. We do not watch T.V.. listen to lots of radio. Cut fire wood. Use rain barrels, barter, and build what I need when it is needed. I clean my own food. We raise our own chickens. Both for eggs, meat and compost. We have a green garden no pesticides.
Hope this helps you . Sincerely, Brian

Hi there, I have just moved to NSW and am building a small off grid home to settle in after travelling with horse and wagon in uk for years. Would love to chat with like minded folk…also can anyone advise on an efficient smallish fridge to run via inverter from 300w panels? Thanks, Lou

Living off-grid, Science, Technology and Biodiversity are the disciplines. have large block of land. May be interested in persons to buy in. No cults, or people politics allowed. “The truth is within all sentient life forms”.
Have lived in monastries in the himalayas for many years.
