    Anyone living off grid or want to learn how ?

    I am wondering how many of you live off grid or are seriously considering doing it ?

    With the economy the way it is and people losing homes and jobs I suspect alot of people will move to a homesteader lifestyle whether they want to or not.

    I live off-grid in a solar cabin I built for under $2000. I use solar for electricity, a solar composting toilet, solar water heater and solar oven.

    I am self employed and because I have no house payment and no monthly utility bill I can live very inexpensively and have a food storage and enouh money to survive quite well for 3 years. I raise a big garden, fruit trees, rabbits and chickens for food. I harvest rainwater and drilled my own water well. I also hunt, fish and trap as needed.

    I am very self-sufficient and I am always willing to share what I have learned with anyone willing to listen.

    You can see my cabin for free ideas and links on my website:
