What do you want to know about off-grid living and living a self-sufficient lifestyle?


I am about to begin my next batch of articles about my experiences living off the grid. I know lots of people cover issues from a 'theoretical' viewpoint, and many hubs provide good information. To be most helpful, I'm thinking I should try to address "What's it really like to ...." or "How does it really work when ..." Anything you'd like me to specifically address about living off the grid, solar power, organic gardening, bathroom issues, cooking off-grid, etc? I can happily just write as I have in past hubs, but do you have any specific fears or concerns that you'd like me to address?

    Good question. I hear you.

    I'll definitely address it because I know that some things wouldn't be possible here if my husband and I weren't working as a team. That doesn't mean they wouldn't get done. It would just be a bit more difficult. :)

    I will dig out my goat photos and goat soap recipe. lol.

    Cygnetbrown has raised goats. I'm not sure why I know that, and I'm not sure if she's yet written a hub about them. Hopefully she'll be along soon with some input. :)

    I strongly recommend this idea as a basic precaution whether you are off grid or on. In an emergency when you have no heating, no cooling, no power etc, I suspect you will thank me for this hub. lol.

    Thanks so much. Lots for me to read now. We are trying very hard to minimize the amount of outside resources we are using and it's A LOT of work! So there is lots left to learn. Looking forward to reading more of your hubs!
