  1. Hi, my wife and I love your blog. We've been reading for six months or so. We live in Grand Prairie TX, right up against Dallas. We are planning our escape to the west and your articles are always refreshing and informative. Any tips you can give about how to prepare for leaving the city, how to find a place to go, the costs involved, etc etc etc will be greatly appreciated.

    Take it easy, Chris Brown

  2. Hi Miss Wretha. Meadowlark here and it's been maybe a year? Back when Survival Chick was around (I still worry about her).

    I'm in the high desert and don't have any specific questions, but always check you in my feed reader to know what's going on.

    Peace to you, my friend.

  4. I like your blog. Reading for years the off-grid.net. Found you there. Looking forward to read your posts.

    Not living off-grid, but trying to recude power consumption. Although, on grid, the plan is step by step, eliminating the need for the grid. One step at a time. It works for me.

    Greetings from Greece

  5. Love your blog. I’m not exactly sure but it seems that I have been following you for about a year now. As for a nickname, probably RD would be the one. I am from Texas, been here for most of my life. I am currently in Houston. I live in my RV and work as an insurance adjuster. Been working claims in this area pretty much since Hurricane Ike hit this area 9-13-2008.

    I have a plan to do something similar to what you are doing. I have been looking for land in Alaska, Argentina, Mexico, Costa Rica and West Texas. Not sure where I’ll end up…but I hope it is one of those places….and I hope it is soon. Once again I really enjoy your blog. If I had a request it would be more detail about what you do on a daily basis. Thanks again!

  6. Hi Wretha, It's been about 6mo. I really enjoy reading about all the things you all do. We had a horrible ice storm earlier this year no power for 2 weeks, which means no water when you have a well but we made it just fine with our oil lamps an cooking on the grill so we were off grid for that time an I remembered a lot from when I was a child when we didn't have all the conviences we have now an it sure came in handy. I'm in NE Arkansas an I'm June. Have a great day

  7. Hi! Found you thru one of the other blogs I read. In SW Florida. Just hubby & I - retired here less than a year before Hurricane Charley hit.
    Have recently added solar attic fans, solar hot water, cook mainly with solar oven and propane grill and garden with Earthboxes and other containers. Trying to do more - want to be as off the grid as possible, while still living in an urban area.

  8. I think that I have been reading your blog for about a year. I began my own journey to build my own self sufficient home about 15 months ago, and thanks to various trials and tribulations I have had to change locations, delay the building for over half a year, and then seek out paying work to cover the expenses of living essentially on the road. Planning on a super efficient underground home ala Mike Oehler's design methods.

  9. Been following your blog daily for about 6mos-1 year. Saw you on John Wells' The Field Lab blog and decided to check yours out. Went back to the first entry and read forward to current date.

    Currently life in Spring, Texas. Born and reared in Texas. Love all parts of Texas but would really like out of Houston area. Ready to settle down (a young 70+) but have to wait for wife to retire.

    I have checked out many of your sponsors and did purchase Simple Solar Homestead book. Best $5 investment I have ever made.

    More snippets of your country store characters along with photos of you and them featured on the blog. I know Mountain Bob must be steady at work more shots of what he is up to.

  11. Just back from a yard sale and brought home a 55 gallon food grade water barrel with pump - cost all of $10. Couple giving it up because "we haven't had a hurricane in 5 years". Their stupidity, our gain.

  13. Hi Wretha, Been reading your blog for some time and can't remember how I found it but most likely by going to your profile from a comment you posted on another one of the blogs I follow (isn't that how we find most new blogs).

    We live in a travel trailer in central Arkansas until I can shed the chains of work and hit the road.

  14. I just stumbled on your blog. WE are a family of four living in Central Maine. WE have wanted to go off grid for some time. But we had a little boy 3 years ago and took a detour. We have been livng a "country life". We've built a barn and grow most of our own food. We do rain water collection already. My husband has a new job and right now we are living under two roofs during the week. A home has become available that would have us all together. It is a tiny cabin in the woods on 7 acres of land. It has no water of electric. It is a solid and aesthetically pleasing structure. We would be able to put a well and hand pump next spring and have explored ways of getting water for the winter . A membership at the local YMCA will provide our bathing for a while. The prospect of making this move is both exciting and nerve wracking.

    Be sure that I will be reading your whole blog today:)

  15. Hi Wretha, I'm Kellene, based out of Utah, am an avid prepper and couponer (it's a great way to get my emergency preparedness gear cheap!) and I've been touching in periodically for the last 6 months to a year.
