Myself, my other half, our son, and our dog are looking to go off grid. Right now, we are living and working near the city, trying to save money. We’re a young family, I will be 22 soon, my fiance is 23, and our son is almost 2. This summer, we spent 1 month at an “off-grid community” that just wasn’t what we were looking for. Our hopes were to grow food, build a house/ buildings for ourselves and others, and have a community oriented lifestyle. This was not the case here. After leaving there, we went to New Mexico to help exchange at a non-certified organic farm. It was a wonderful experience, much closer to what we wanted. Back in South Dakota, we hope to find partners to buy land with. Someone who has land already, and is willing to let us build, would work too. We are spiritual, but not religious. We like to have a good time, but dislike people who need to smoke or drink constantly. We are fed up with the system, and are ready to separate ourselves from it. Join us in our quest to become self-sufficient!
