The best thing todo in my opinion, is to find a small home in the country.
Just getting away from the city gives a person the "off the grid" feeling.
Then plan your own ways of getting off the grid by generating your own electricity, or fuel, finding your own food, etc.
In these days, living off the land is more futile than just camping for a few months.
The disease's that fester in standing water can kill a person quickly.
I would say it takes a small colony of smart people to do it successfully, by that time, the gov't probably has its eyes on you and you become
Living off the grid requires more no-how than most people obtain in a lifetime these days.
All this because of how spoiled we are as humans now.
We don't produce anything ourselves...food, shelter, clothing.
In the days where there was NO grid, people knew these things extremely well.
In the past centuries, we have successfully given up these skills for one thing.
