if this works out i'll be on one of the jones's claims, i'm off grid cause i'm allowed to squat on a friends gravel pit for keeping an eye on things in the winter it's not as convenient as being plugged in, i've got to keep a gen and a propane light fed, but the price is right. if i don't have cash flow i've been down to a twelve volt battery and flashlights from time to time and when the driveway was drifted 6 feet deep this winter i was boiling snow for water for a while but i don't mind living this way for now and when i get the stake to buy my own place it will likely be remote enough to make this good practice.
as an added note to living off grid generators are h3ck on computers i fried my vaio last spring. i just got a cell phone with limited internet access but haven't got a new puter to try it as a modem. i can't get a type window on the phone in the forum here so still gotta come to town at the moment.
