• Hi, we are living  in Las Vegas, Nevada. But our dream is to go off-grid. Not sure if we are not able to find the right place, property, area etc.. We moved from California to Arizona to start our dream, didn’t work out because it wasn’t the right location afterall. So we moved to Las Vegas, Nv.  We are both employed, in our 40’s, have great jobs and are living in a nice apartment both have cars no kids living a good life, but we want a better life and we know that can only come from living off-grid and growing our own food. Did you hear about the romaine lettuce and ground beef, recall? Crazy right!? we all need to be growing/raising our own food..I am so in love with the whole idea of growing my own food, building my chicken coop & and medicinal herbs… We have looked for land here in Vegas but can’t seem to find any with a water well. It seems that a well is very expensive to have drilled especially here in the desert, being that it has to be drilled very deep.. But we keep an open mind and a diligent search….Are there many others here in Las Vegas or anywhere elese that want to go off-grid but it seems like it may just continue to be a dream…Drop us a line tell us about your journey.

    what about Arkansas {ozarks} as an off grid place to start a community?? in the right part the growing season is long and land fertile plus lakes for fishing and plenty of hunting areas. i have researched this alot and find it very rural which is a plus when getting away from the craziness of this world of entitlement. any thoughts on this please email me back at bolyardkathy45@gmail.com. i am seriously interested in going off grid.
