Living off the grid. Would you ?

If you had the resources to live entirely off the grid, as in a water supply like well water, solar generated electricity, wood furnace or geothermal heat,  would you? It's a lot of money up front but you make that up in a few years with lack of utilitiy bills. You have the freedom of being self reliant. 

What about subsistence living? Would you be willing to grow, fish or hunt all of your own food and not rely on the supermarket? Would you want to?

Yes, yes and yes.

However I don't have the resources to do so.

Hell no.

Why not? What about it doesn't appeal to you? Just curious.

Yes.  If we had the resources to do it, we would.

I would be a vegetarian if I was put in charge of hunting the animals.

That's ultimately what we want to do!!! We hunt, grow our own food, etc... Now we just have to save to do what we really want :) we are thinking Montana

No I wouldn't.

I hear the term recently on a TV show...wish I could remember what it was. It wasn't a reality show I know that.
