Hello, my name is Cade. My wife and I live in the mountains on the north coast of the Dominican Republic. We sailed away from Florida (St. Petersburg) back in 2001 and washed up here! We have a house with a big cistern and solar panels, but we are still connected to the world via internet - wirelessly. We learned a lot about living off the grid and being well-prepared in our years of traveling by sailboat - in some ways a farm is actually easier. We have coffee, bananas, avocados, oranges, and several tropical foods that are not so common elsewhere. I think we will start raising ducks and tilapia in the next year. Anyway, that is our situation. We have plenty left to learn.
