Extreme Off-Grid: 10 Hours From The Big City
This week’s guests on Off The Grid Radio fall into that latter category. They’re 45 minutes from the nearest town, 10 hours from the closest big city, and they have no neighbors. Their self-sufficient life isn’t for everyone, but they wouldn’t have it any other way.
Their names are Dave and Jeff, and they and their wives and children share a 40-acre lot in northern British Columbia – the land of long, sunny summer days and long, cold winter nights.
Friends thought they were crazy for moving there … but soon changed their minds when they learned how inexpensive it was.
Dave and Jeff share incredible details about their off-grid life, including:
- Why they wanted to move off-grid.
- How they get food, water and electricity.
- Why they believe an education for children off-grid can be superior to one on-grid.
- How they make money while living off-grid.
Of course, one of the perks of living a remote life is the natural beauty. They tell us about their amazing encounters with wildlife (including one frightening run-in with a mama bear and her cubs!).
If you’ve ever wanted to get out of the rat race and move off-grid, then this week’s show is for you!
