Hi this is Nick, and I hope you enjoy these extract which we’ll be posting up over the next few weeks.
The extracts are published in the order in which they appear in the book, so you won’t get to the nitty-gritty of my journey around the UK off-grid community just yet.
The FIRST extract relates to how I personally got into this off-grid way of life – by accident of course – as is the way with all the best things that happen to us: You can read it here
The SECOND extract is about the way the grid developed in the UK – it was different everywhere – and how the planning system started. You can find it here
The THIRD extract is about my decision to buy a camper van (RV to you Americans). You can find it here.
The FOURTH extract finds me well into the tour of British of-gridders, visiting a commune in Devon which is under siege from angry grid-connected millionaire property-owners. You can find it here.
The SIXTH Extract is about one way of going off the grid in London, or any major city – on a houseboat. You can find it here.
