Much of the expense of living off-grid is the property, that is the thing that usually stops people from being able to live their dreams.

At one time in the USA you could homestead land and get it free,  all you had to do was live on it and improve it,  but that has stopped a long time ago, well within my lifetime.

I’ve recently learned that there are states and towns that offer free land in exchange for living on it, improving it, or bringing jobs to the town. Of course it might not be exactly where you want to live, but beggars can’t be choosers righ?

So watch this video and let me know if this is something that you would be interested in doing. Enjoy.

    The only Free land that states or cities are giving away is land that no one wants because it has Little to NO value for anything, they are looking for Tax Income from worthless Strip parcels or property with no access. Don’t be fooled by FREE, it Ain’t Free is a Myth.
