Thumbs up Off the grid in Ohio since 95

Advertise Here

Hello Everyone,

I'm a 47 year old female from Ohio and I'm damn glad to be here
A couple of years ago I made a new friend that's been living in a cabin off the grid since 95. His place is in the woods and completely solar powered. He has always been self-employed and is amazingly self-sufficient. I have learned a lot about living of the land, growing produce and taking advantage of opportunities as they present themselves since I've met him. My lifestyle has changed for the better and I have become much more self-reliant and self-sufficient over the last couple of years.

That is a good resource you have found it sounds like.

I have considered off grid, or at least close, but it seems tough. And from what I can figure if you only get close you really might as well forget it.

I'm new too.. so new this is my first post.. I'm gonna keep an eye out for your posts... I have an interest in living off the grid and being less of a consumer and more of a maker/doer or a make doer.. lol

Good luck to you and your off gridder
