Arvo Thompson went from wanting to live off grid to actually doing it, a step that sadly, not enough people actually do. He has been living the life for 15+ years, designing and building everything on his property himself. He is truly a self made man living his dream.

I found this on YouTube and thoroughly enjoyed watching this. I will say, like some of the comments on this video, he does seem to need a woman’s touch there, but it would have to be a very special person to share a life like that, no high maintenance women need apply :) No, I’m not trying to hook Arvo up with anyone though, just making an observation.

Here is the video, the direct link is below the video, enjoy.
