[before_listing id=261 images= youtube=null] Im already off grid in my self converted ambulance using leisure batteries for my power — needs generator for back up and solar and multiple input for charging

gas is on propane as butane freezes in the winter

heat is provided by a wood burner cooking by the cooker and washing via local campsites till i finish the shower — all this i did my self and would love to pass on the knowlage to others

its not as hard as you would think to go off grid — give it a try — its addictive.[landbuddy_listing id=261 youtube=null]

    Oooh it’s been ages but I’m keen to join you. I’m North East England.

    To anyone else looking, let’s crowd fund some land and get this started!?

    hi there all would be more than happy to share any knowledge with you all and help all move off grid and mobile for a free life. Im still in keswick however ive sold the van so me and my partner could get a caravan together needed a bit more stability of not having to transport my house all the time got a landy and a caravan instead not that van dwellings not for me but i adjust the way i live to my needs there are pros and cons of both the vans good for being mobile the caravans good for being stationary.

    Hey CRASHAPPY69! Keswick must be a beautiful place to live off-grid. I’m looking into the lifestyle myself and wanting to make moves towards reality as soon as possible. I assume you move from place to place in your ambulance?

    Been looking to get off grid for the past 18 months and I am now making plans to equip a van and find land/wood to start living on.
    Lots of ideas and hopes but these things take time.

    Do you have land to live on??
    I am only over the border in Scotland.
