    Hi. I am just introducing myself. Bulldog. I am wanting to learn so much more about off grid living for me and my family.

    I have two little girls I want them to love the freedom living off the grid can provide.

    Admirable!! Teaching your children self reliance is the responsibility of every parent. Some accept the challenge, others abdicate that responsibility to teachers, their family members, their kids friends or society in general. I like your take!!

    Welcome to the site!
    Start learning how to Farm out the gate! Start out as big as you can, that way you get crops even if you make mistakes along the way. It gets easier every time you do it. Most crops have a 90 day turn around, then pull them and plant something different. Seed packets almost always have instructions on the back.
    Meat rabbits are good as well, don't require a lot of space or effort, they taste great, clean meat and lots of it!

    Welcome aboard. I was watching Fat men in the woods. Some guy on the show wanted to live off grid. After a day or so of roughing it he declared his off-grid would have solar and water etc... So how off-grid are you planning?

    Be safe and check out those you are hooking up with. Ensure you understand what they are about and that your family is coming to a good situation.
