I Need To Leave
by SHEPPIE on JULY 17, 2014 - 6 Comments in I WANT TO GO OFF GRID

Hi, my name’s Aaron, I’m 22 and I’m a guy.
I’ve lived in Maryland my entire life and I need to leave. I need to live somewhere where I can do things that actually matter. Like grow/harvest food, maintain a place to live, supply my own water, and connect with people who just want to live life for what it is. I can’t put up with this backwards “economy” and doing/buying things that just don’t matter or aid to help me progress as a human. I know there’s so much more to living than to make money, owe money, and give all that money to corporations. I want to connect with people on a real level. I’d like to one day get out of America.
SO what I’d like to is to join a community, or even start a community with a bunch of people, but a community that’s “modern.” But I’m willing to think about any offer that someone shows me. And I’ll move anywhere that’s possible for me to reach. I just really want to leave this mundane lifestyle.

Decision made, Time to move on
by CHAMP on JULY 8, 2014 - 4 Comments in I WANT TO GO OFF GRID

Hello,

My name`s Mitch. I am 21 I was born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago, but its time to move on. School isn’t right for me now and I’ve always had a passion for the outdoors. I’m ready and want to prove to myself. I’m strong enough to escape from this easy lifestyle and challenge myself. I`m looking for somewhere to live and someone who can teach me how to become a survivalist. I’m very athletic and have been playing sports my while life, sports are one of my passions. I also love problem solving, and have an iq to match that. I know that I’ll be a great addition to any community for a long time and will be able to prove my worth over any lacking survivalist skill. Sweating in the mid day heat over hard manual labor is the stuff I love gritting teeth and all. It’s time to move on, I’m ready for the challenge.

Need some help and somewhere to go.

I’m only 15 but i’m a survivalist and I wish to live off the grid by any means necessary. I can hunt, fish, forage, I am an artist and I have many talents in many different fields. I’m a hard worker and will do about anything. I need somewhere to stay, somewhere to call home, but I have no where. So please, could someone help me out here?

Seeking North Carolina
by BRIANNEBRIANNEFAHEYCOM on JULY 2, 2014 - 0 Comments in I WANT TO GO OFF GRID

Hi

I’m a 40 year old female and I’m greatly considering to live off grid preferably around Asheville area for I find it beautiful and I’m part Cherokee, but I am open to other areas. I’m seeking either a community to join with or to neighbor by with like minded people. I’d like to own my own land to build and live on. I want a wooded area with hills or mountains and a patch of sun to grow an organic garden and land without building restrictions… at least free to build a cabin or straw house etc.
I am seeking to do this rather immediately or during spring time.
I’m looking for people who are free spirits, no drama makers, peaceful happy people, and preferably in the healing field ( like reiki etc) for I am. And gay friendly people. And I will make it note worthy that I am absolutely intolerable to men and women invading my space. ” NO means NO”. And I prefer people who are not hunters.
So if anyone is interested or knows of an ideal area to give me leads on please contact me and lets discuss! Also if anyone can lead me to a website with cheap land in the area. thanks! sprite333@live.com

looking at going off-grid in British Columbia
by CHRIS CANNON on JULY 2, 2014 - 1 Comment in I WANT TO GO OFF GRID

Vancouver writer looking to learn everything i can about off-grid living for some magazine and tv work i am doing, but also out of curiosity and a desire to be part of a sustainable community. I prefer the witty, kind, and sane over the dull, angry, and loopy. Please move on if you respect the Kardashians or make your dog wear goggles.

At this point, i am just trying to scout out the local, off-grid community and see what i can learn. Possible move in the future — interior, the sunshine coast, or on one of the islands perhaps.

I’m a college prof, a rock critic, an author, a former US Marine Sergeant, and a friend to animals. My wife is a baker and a model. Our cat does not have a job.

Looking to transition soon!
by SENSI on JULY 2, 2014 - 1 Comment in I WANT TO GO OFF GRID

I’ve been educating myself on Earthbag and SuperAdobe construction methods. With these hand-made buildings, a cheap parcel of remote land and the help of a handful of like-minded people, a new village may take root. I’m ready to begin the transition over the next year(2011). I have put together a plan to make the transition but it relies heavily on other people who wish to do the same. By pooling manpower, a little money and time, I want to create a satellite village which helps others into this lifestyle. By taking part in the village, people will learn DIY home building, permaculture gardening, and various other off-grid skills and information. Think of it as an introduction where people could spend days, months, weeks or even years learning these ways before setting out on their own. It’s not about money and it should never come to that. Sure it will still be useful in some circumstances but the idea is to be free of such pursuits, stop trading our time, our labor and our lives for money and start living what life we have left to enjoy.
The transition will not be easy and is expected to take place over several years with the first stage being the development of the land with little more than camping accommodations. As Earthbag structures and various support systems like septic begin to take form, the village will become more of a weekend retreat, trading lodging, information and hospitality for labor. When someone truly puts their heart into something; their resourcefulness knows no bounds. And that is the strength behind a project like this. Everyone who becomes involved will have done so because their heart told them it was the right thing to do.
