Living off the Grid

Recommended Posts

yeah, I read that this afternoon. Interesting operation. But man, West Texas desert is a little too off grid for me.

Cool story though.

My wife and I did without power a few times, moving onto raw land we bought, then building. After a while, you get real sick of splitting wood and hauling water. It takes up a lot of time.

We don't even have a wood heater in this house and nope, we don't want one, either.

My daughter, her husband and their children (my grandchildren) live off the grid in Honduras! They are missionaries on what is called the Mosquito Coast. They have a generator that they run about 6 hours a night for electricity. They have an LPG refrigerator and pump water from a well. Put it this way, they are so far off the grid that they can't even get mail service within 100 miles of them! We call them the Swiss Family McGehees!

The funny thing is that they have a cell phone and cell service in the village they are in. No power in the village but they have cell service!
