I am very confident in being able to accomplish this, i have had to resort to living offgrid in a home that was not set up for it, it was very expensive and a lot of work, especially freezing water in the winter having to haul water for animals etc.

i have most of the supplies needed for what i think is must haves, i was interested in hearing other peoples life lessons

as for construction, farming and animals and gardening, i have done construction professionally and as for the rest do it on a regular basis.

I feel a lot of the presumption is its too hard or cant be done without great difficulty, well I am of the belief its only as hard as you make it , and the less luxuries you need and less commercial you are the easier transition you will have. I have almost eliminated all of this out of my life, therefore ready for the next step,
