    Hi all,

    As some of you may have noticed I’ve been writing a bit about how different people make a living whilst off-the-grid. I’m looking for one more story that’s a bit different from the previous 3, so I’m looking to this community for some help! If you think what you do is different or interesting, or if you know someone else working in an interesting way, reply to this post with a few details so I can get back to you. Thanks everyone.

    Read this article. As far as I can tell no one has been making these privately and I would bet that if you posted it on boards like this you would get some orders from people.

    And its a perfect off grid product that can be made cheaply with little effort.

    :)

    Thanks, but that’s not exactly what I meant, I want to find people who are already making money in a unique way so that I can write about them.

    Not sure if it counts or not, but we’ll be off-grid in a couple of months. We make our living 100% online and have for 8 years now. So while we will collect our own water, and use solar power for electricity, we’ll have satellite internet to get our business by.

    Site is our180.com if you want to check it out.

    You didn’t read it. The manure intensifies the heat to harden the clay mixture without needing a kiln. The coffee grounds and other items burn away leaving microscopic holes to act as a filter.

    Not being a wise guy but reading instructions and looking at it from a neutral point of view could save your life one day if the shit hits the fan and you need to filter drinking water from a mud hole or silted lake…

    I have been off grid since 1998, and until I retired, drove 18 miles, usually, to build custom homes in the area. Off grid can be in a city or town with work there, too. A lot of off grid is rural but still relatively close to small towns. There are some that are basically independent farms and ranches. Many online workers, without product shipping, can live off grid way off the beaten path. Others who sell on ebay or their site, need a town with shipping within reasonable distance.
