Off Grid Conversions

Deciding how basic you would like to go off-grid is a very personal decision and different for everyone.

The answer for what “works” for you will vary, based on…

Books I LOVE

Some great books to get your mind thinking: 1984 by George Orwell – Have always loved this book! To think this was written/published in 1949 about what the future would be like – Big Brother is watching you.

Virtually Paint Your Room/House

Off-Grid Sink

For our little dry cabin, I REALLY wanted a sink and a medicine where I could brush my teeth, take out my contacts, and even do my hair. My neighbors/friends use a 12v water pump connected to their battery in order to have a full functioning faucet. Basically the faucet draws water from a fresh…

So, the hubby and and I are going to be backpacking the Tahoe Rim Trail this Fall and I am prepping with getting our meals together, etc. I have had a variety of instant coffees; however, most are not individuality packaged. I like Starbucks coffee but it is kinda expensive for the amount that we…
