Check out this interesting story of Keith Thompson, a guy who decided to live completely off the grid.

Keith started with a plot of land that had no roads, no power lines or water, and no access to any kind of utilities. He built his house by hand, dug a well, created a solar power system and is now living his dream of off grid living.

Check out his story…..

    Hey Skeeter,
    I just viewed your youtube again for about the 4th or 5th time. Really enjoy my learning from your wisdom and experience. Keep up the great work “off the grid”= = way to go!

    I wish I could do this. How did you get the money to start up? I.e buy the land, the building equipment, etc?

  6. John says:

  7. Nelson says:

    I love the whole video particularly how he wraps it up!

    “I don’t have monthly Bills”…
    “Here in America where use to a high level of material comfort, … I just don’t want to pay for it for the rest of my life !! wooo hoo,

    He’d done a great thing, he’s eliminated a mortgage! Electric and water bill.
    For ever !

    Can he do better?

    Absolutely, how about implementing a food productions system, like Aquaponics, that gets you fish/shrimp and 100% organic Vegies, free for life,
    or raising chickens for meat/ eggs, well, not for life but at least for 3-5 years of eggs.

    Thats what my site is about, come have a look.

    The videotaping should have been on the living environment, not on the mans face.

    Nice, I don’t shovel snow, I hope you don’t have too!

  12. Kip says:

    I was looking at some comments earlier that had to do with electrical problems during hurricane Sandy from someone that appeared to be a contractor. Another person from possibly Popular Mechanics wanted to contact him. and had his email address that I am trying to get. Is there any way to find that forum again? That was going on I believe back in Nov. to Jan. Your help would be appreciated.
