Home Forums General Discussion getting started Re: getting started


rrsisu has launched a really interesting discussion here – he’s saying in effect, I want to get out, but I need some financial security to make the leap. I totally understand where he is coming from, but I’d remind him of a couple of things. First off, you really need remarkably little dough when you are living off grid. $1000 a month is plenty. Since he is an attorney, I venture to suggest he could try to make that much running a legal advice service online. But he could also pick herbs in the forest and sell them in the local farmers makret.

That still leaves open the question of where to get his grubstake, but again the answer may be that for a few thousand dollars he could have a cabin in a wood and a solar panel and a woodburning stove, and what else do you need? Exactly where would he do that? Suggestions please.
