Do you long to live off the grid away from it all?

My dream! Of course, I'd still interact with others. I love people. I just love simplicity and the quiet pace.

  • No.

    I have lived that way.. Actually, I've lived where there is no such thing as "the grid" Way out in villages in the middle of nowhere in India, with no such thing as electricity, indoor plumbing, running water, stores...etc.. I have no desire to live that way again..

  • I would like to keep my indoor plumbing etc and live off the grid at the same time. We have a well and septic so already off the grid there, but I would love to make enough of our own electricity to not need the power company. Sadly though we need internet due to our business so that would still be on the grid. We currently recycle all of our garbage that doesn't burn or compost too so no garbage pick up here either. We also heat with wood that we collect ourselves.

  • I feel like in many aspects, I do. The closest town has one tiny store. We are out in the middle of nowhere surrounded by nature, fields and flowers ( in season). We do have a few neighborhood farmers somewhat close, but have a very serene existence. Life is good. :-)

  • No. I get creeped out if I feel too isolated. I cherish my privacy but still don't like the thought of being completely secluded out in the middle of nowhere.
