Would you live Off the Grid if you could?
I have another thread asking for advice on land and living off the grid. I just noticed, even though this is kinda a slow forum that thread has been read almost 400 times in 2 days. That's pretty good as forums go (I use a lot of forums) so it prompts me to think there may be more interest in living off the grid than I thought by the general population.
I'd like to ask: If you could live off the grid, would you if you could?
For the purposes of this thread, living off the grid means living in a self sufficient manner including making your own electricity and not relying on municipal utilities. Your water would be well water or rain collection (filtered of course) , power from wind, solar and or propane, your home would either be a house on your own paid for land or a trailer or mobile home (so you don't have to pay rent/mortgage)
I'm trying to determine really how much interest there is to live like this. Would you do it? Do you think there should be more laws that cater to this type of living so you could make this transition easier? Would you like to see and hear more people living like this and learn more about this lifestyle?
