    I bought a Renogy 100 folding solar suitcase for about $ 280.00, i still have to buy a good battery – ( prices on those vary looking at about maybe 150.00 ) and then an inverter  for about another 100.00. ) so fro around 500 or so i should have a system to run a few things.   I am sure there are the same products out there that may cost a bit less, but i went with what had the best reviews and customer support!.      Now granted i have not set this all up yet- so maybe someone who has a system in place already can help out as well.

    The other hard part, and probably the main reason ( beside hubby) as to why i am not off the grid yet, is i have a house i need to sell first! and with the economy the way it is, i don’t see it happening soon.

    Andrew- sometimes it’s a bit temperamental. if you just hit (f5) to refresh your screen, it usually works!

    I do hope he is around for a long time, but also need to be prepared.

    I would goggle on how to clean fish.( that is where i learned to skin a squirrel.)

    ( i have yet to actually shoot one, but i will know what to do when i do shoot one.)

    In thinking where would i like to live, that’s a toss up- i have always thought Alaska would be the place for me, but

    pretty much anywhere away from people would be good!

    Sas,

    I hope to someday be where you are. I am 44, currently married, my husband has some health issues and i am a realist in knowing he won’t be around forever. I currently spoke to him about this being something i wanted to do- i live in a small town but do not want to be here forever. i prefer the country! He does not think this is something that can be done at my age, you are an inspiration an hope, knowing that i may someday be able to get out and be free! His main concerns are medical issues as we get older( i don’t currently have any but i guess he has a point) I have decided to start saving in hopes to achieve this dream some day!

    I am curious do you hunt for your meat? ( this is something i need to learn how to do- well i know how, just haven’t ever pulled the trigger yet. ( or fish? i love to fish)
