Off-Grid for a
or Just a Day
When most people think of off-grid living, they think of
fringe hippies, living in some remote desert, with an earth ship house, solar
panels, and dirty hair. I know that's what I thought of when I first started
researching off-grid living. But things have changed quite a bit since the
off-grid movement first began, and now, more than ever, getting unplugged,
getting outside and living more consciously and intentionally, is a choice that
mainstream Americans are making every day.
Even the word "off-grid" has changed. I don't know
what it means to you, but when I think about "getting off the grid,"
I think of more than just throwing up some solar panels. I think about all the
ways that I can remove myself from environmental destruction, toxic chemicals
in my food, cancer-causing agents in my health practices, and yes, throwing up
some solar panels while I'm at it. Because getting off the grid means more than
just the power grid. It means getting off our dependence on consumption of oil
and oil based products. It means being more self sufficient in the way that we
conduct our everyday business, everything from food, medicine, banking, energy,
waste disposal and water.
And, there are many stages of dependence and even more ways
to creatively solve HOW a person chooses to unplug, to dis-engage, and to
create self reliance. For most of us, just getting outside for a few hours for
a hike, or perhaps getting the family out of town and into the mountains for a
camping trip, or spending a week with buddies hunting, is not just a luxury
anymore. It's a necessity. Our lives have become so filled with electronic
distractions, over stimulation, and the stress of modern living, that we
absolutely MUST reconnect with nature in some way just to unwind, and feel
However, I have found that most people who take the time to
get off-grid even for a few hours, quickly find themselves addicted to the
experience of being "off the grid" and settled down. I know for me,
the more I'm outside, the more I want to be outside. And this has led me to my
own off-grid journey. My goal: to be completely self sufficient, to live on my
own little piece of heaven, where my food is grown outside my kitchen window
and my hands smell of earth and hard work. I want to know that the food I eat, the
clothes I wear, the energy I consume, and the water I drink are sacred and
renewable. I want off this crazy toxic merry-go-round that is consuming more
than our natural resources: it's consuming my spirit along with it! This
website, and my life, are both an attempt to take my pioneering spirit back.
I hope you will join me in creating your own off grid
moments, whether you are hiking, backpacking, camping, hunting, gardening,
playing or building.
So Let's Go Off-Grid or Take a Hike!
