Getting Ready to Go Off Grid
Many people dream of being off the grid. Not having to hook up to a company’s systems, providing your own water and power, is something few ever accomplish. With the ever increasing laws being passed against letting people live this way, getting ready to go off grid takes more planning than just walking off into the woods with your hand tools to build a home.
It can be very challenging to go from a modern life to a more simplistic one. Getting ready means coming to terms with not having all the modern conveniences that we’re used to. Unless you’ve lived rustic, it can be quite the adjustment! Being off grid doesn’t mean you are living in a cave, though. It means you are not relying on others for your needs. Of course, no person is an island but that doesn’t mean you can’t unplug from the grid!
When getting ready to go off grid, there are absolute basic needs that must be met before making the jump. Looking ahead, you also need to consider what you need to get your infrastructure in place. On top of that, you need to ensure that you have enough food stored to see you through until the crops are harvested. Before all of this, though, is making sure you know what you want and how you plan on getting it!
