Hi guys, I am getting ready to leave the East Coast and venture out west to set up my homestead. These are the states I am considering settling in: New Mexico, Arizona, Oregon, Washington and Alaska. Any of you already living off -grid in these states? If so, can you share your biggest challenges and biggest joys?

I researched each state (and visited 4 out of 5)  and, to an extent, I am aware of the challenges each state comes with, especially Alaska :-). But, I am looking for your real-life, subjective experience as those are unique. Not sure if any of you would be open to me visiting you on my way across country – I am happy to trade labor or pay $$ in exchange for being able to put up a tent for a night or two. Curious to see your solar/water/food production setups and compare to my own blueprints.

Anything you would like to share is much appreciated!
