    LMAO at you littlebang, I have to admit your reply is very entertaining. Sorry I’m still laughing at you atm. You did get part of it right, I am half native american. And yes i know what your intentions are, to try to make some money on something you know nothing about by riding on the coat tails of the ones that do.

    Are you serious? I took my family off grid in the middle of the desert and having a thriving homestead, why would i give you money?we worked with natural materials and stuff we salvaged. I am sick and tired of you lazy ass people that want everyone else to support you and carry you in life.

    I think its funny that these people that have no clue about living off grid are going to write a book, When there power goes out for a couple of hours hardly makes them off grid experts.We are off gridders in the arizona desert and having a thriving homestead, i assure you i would not share information with you on off grid living, you want to write about live off grid for a few years then write your book.

    I was just wondering why is all, it seems to me that in group settings there are more chiefs and no braves, i myself like the lone prepper approach, Desert Deb is a single person living OTG and we all do help each other but have seperate lives, To centralpafarm, your reply was to me abit over the edge, all i was asking is why, People need to learn to stand on there own two feet given the world as it is today. If I can take my family out of the burbs to a remote desert location and make it totally OTG and no neighbors around and the same applies to Deb, We started out with nothing, no jobs and lived in a tent. Guess i look at it as survival not like its a neighborhood setting, after all that is why we did it.

    When we built 3 years ago we had to have the building inspected and was told we could use a composting toilet unless they changed since then.

    Hi we did, we got a 7 and 16 year old, they seem to like it, they go to public schools but we have to drive them 4 miles to catch a bus and pick them up. We our totally off grid.

    We left the city feb 18th and have been off grid ever since now, we only been off grid for a month now but we love it. We got chickens and turkeys and the kids really enjoy caring for them.

    They biggest thing is just being able to unplug and let go, once you do that you can start enjoying life, we are no longer in the day to day rat race. Granted we have everything paid for and bought our solar panels and wind generator before moving off grid. We are framing in our walls and stuff but i dont think i would go back to grid life and the rat race.

    It’s nice to wake up in the morning knowing everything you do is for our selfs and no one else. Either you will love it or hate it. It’s not easy and its alot of work but at the end of the day its yours.

    Hope it helps.

    On our paper work the only restriction is no pig farms or junk yards, other then that its pretty wide open. Chocise county did require a building permit and inspection. But being off grid we didnt have to have electrical or plumbing.
