One of the things I like to do on this site is highlight examples of people who are living off the grid; so when I found the story of Keith Thompson, I knew I had to share it with our readers. Keith is a good example of someone who decided to take a chance and live his dream of going completely off the grid.
With little money, and basically just an idea, Keith started small. He found a small plot of land in the high desert of New Mexico that had no roads, no power lines or water, and no access to any kind of utilities. Although he admits he really didn’t know what he was getting into, his story highlights what someone with a dream can do.
This man from the city, who had no real experience living in a raw land, off-grid environment, was able to build his own home, hand dig a well, create a solar panel system, and achieve his dream of living off the grid.
