47 Years Living Off-Grid

47 Years Living Off-Grid

If living in a town or city you are dependent on their water, sewer, natural gas, electricity, and their street maintenance, but you pay a healthy price for these services. What happens when one of these services—or all of them—are interrupted? Are you prepared for even a few days of interruption? This little book may help and not cost a fortune to maintain a somewhat normal life when these outages occur. That being said, one must remember that the first fifty thousand or so years no one in the world had electric power and yet still seemed to flourish. Although I am not expert at anything, I have built and given information to many about living off-grid from my forty-seven years of doing so. The one thing I have learned is that money is the driving force for those that claim to be “experts,” but be careful of these ads, as most if not all have never lived off-grid and only know what they have been schooled on. That being said, there are a few that are really good; finding them is the problem. So, if you learn nothing else from this little book it will help to ask the right questions to help you find those few. I have tried to be honest because if you decide to build and live this lifestyle you will soon discover what I have written is fact not fiction, and only your lifestyle will determine how hard or easy it is to accomplish your goals. Although this is about living off-grid, it has some very good ideas and suggestions on how to build or buy on-grid systems in case you lose your power, that seems to occur about every storm, especially in the east and southern states. It has simple systems that you can install when you lose your electric power, water, or sewer, and it will make these outages tolerable and may even save a life.
