    Retired to keep my sanity!
    Hobbies? Who has time when you're building??
    South central Colorado
    Found a link on someone else's blog. I try to read at least once a month.
    We are living off the grid - 100% - our family & friends think we're nuts for choosing this lifestyle!!
    We're wanting to be self-sufficient due to the declining economy & stuff that's going on in the world... the end is surely near!
    What would you like to know about me?
    Our goals are to be 100% self-sufficient but to be so comes with a price... and we're trying to be frugal.

  4. It is interesting to read comments like, "people think we are nuts" for living off-grid. I've often wondered how to explain how logical off-grid living is to others. There is a new book with several online chapters here called "Surviving Off Off-Grid" that presents a wonderful way to tell your family/friends about the off-grid way of life.

    I'm looking forward to the full book but for now I'll take the free chapters!
