Home Forums General Discussion Truly Off Grid? Re: Truly Off Grid?


My family and I have lived off the grid for most of the last 15 years. We make about 2 shopping trips to town a year as most of our needs are met here on our remote homestead. We do have one advantage over most people, our homestead is in Alaska. We live about 60 miles from any power or pavement. We raise a large organic garden, gather & wild-craft for food and medicinals. We also hunt & fish to help provide for our needs. Living a subsistence lifestyle you quickly learn the difference between needs and wants. I believe anyone can learn to live free of most modern conveniences, it is attitude.
