How to Transition to Live off the Grid with Success

A reader sent us a message with a link to his website (GeekPreppers.Org) concerning “off the grid living”.  As our readers here know we have posted many articles on SHTF.

To that end, here is an excerpt from this very informative post:

In recent years going off the grid has become a cultural buzz phrase. From reality shows airing, to dozens of new articles and media coverage, and legal battles has stirred many misconceptions and inaccurate facts about going off the grid. Our goal here is to clear the air and provide the facts on what it really means to go off the grid and provide a beginners step by step guide to really making it happen, with success.

Here’s the link to the entire article:  CLICK HERE

It is a very worthwhile read.

Well done.  Excellent information.

    I’ve watched the reality shows living off the grid in Alaska. The men seem fine. The women take one look at the outhouse and are done. I think it would be lonely. Not to mention if you get sick. I suppose if you are really young and like adventure you would be fine. Not for me.

      Fully OTG – no way. But stepping 3/4 of the way off sounds pretty good to me at age 70. Outhouse? Nope. But the Etruscians had “flush” toilets indoors in the BC years so reasonable accommodations can be made. As a diabetic I need access to insulin (and other military medicines) so need to be somewhere “reasonably” close to civilization. Consider a “community” of self-sufficient people. Think of a small town of under 2,000 people (maybe 100 or so families) where everyone knows and supports everyone else (even if you don’t like Fred, you still show up when he needs help). No full-time employees. Mayor, Clerk, Chief of police, fire marshal are part-time paid positions. Everyone else is volunteer (so there are 30 volunteer firefighters and 25 volunteer deputies). Municipal building with 1 fire truck, 1 police car, some offices and a meeting room – maybe a 1-room library. Small Grade 1-12 school with 3 teachers and community aiding teachers where their skills overlap (or bus the kids off). General store/gas station; diner; community church where arrangements made with nearby ministers/priests come by and share – much like chapels on bases (Catholics 0830; Prots 1100 Sunday, Jews 1800 Friday)
