    Hi, I am anchor/reporter Marvin Hurst at KENS 5 (CBS) in San Antonio. After our winter storm, the idea of living off the grid is sounding good to a lot of people. I’d love to feature someone who is doing just that. Are you or do you know someone who is? I’d love to set up a chat with them about the possibility of being featured in a special report for television. Thanks in advance for your time and consideration. Reach out to me ASAP at mhurst@kens5.com or 210-254-2814.

    Hi, I am interested in living in a off-grid community. Could you please email me the details on land and everything else if possible? Hope to hear from you soon。

    Hi, love your idea! My husband and I are interested in going off the grid and have been researching to find out the details of homesteading. He knows more than me because he grew up farming. We too know that a united group is the key to good success!Hope to hear from you.

    I have been thinking about this for quite some time now and I am about ready to get off the fence. Your idea sounds good, but I would like to know where this will be…not a general area, but an exact area…something not more than 40 miles from a town or grocery store. I think I want to be out in the toolies away from traffic, but I also want something that has no building restrictions so that I can build me a small place to live. Do you have any idea how deep you have to go to get water. I dont care too much about electricity as I plan to get myself a wind mill and some solar panels. I have been looking at a few places in Brewster County, but my other concern is the possibility of having to deal with illegals passing thru.

  29. Sean

    I have been looking I to the option of living off grid but lack the land to do so. I live in Texas and am looking for a small group willing to work together if someone can provide the land.

  30. ASJK

    Like the sounds of the potential of what you have to work with. I, myself am hoping to go down the “RAW” land road, when my time comes, unfortunately, I will be in Massachusetts for an undetermined time. I could manage October 2017, but I’m not sure if financially that would work.

    Anyways, the reason for the reply, I have my entire build mapped out/designed, just no place to currently put it :( Would love to have the chance to help someone get off… until my time comes around.

    Take Care, Good Luck,
    Hope to hear from you.
