Hello Fellow ATS'ers. Ever want to just pack it in and go as off grid as you could? No mortage, no electric bill, no tax, no car insurance, no cable
tv bill. Just be as self sufficent as possible. Well my wife & I have been working toward this goal for quite a few years.And the time is now.
We have educated ourselves as much as one could. We have prepared our mountain property for this off grid life. We generate our own power, at our
cabin. Water turbine & wind generator supplies all we need. Water is free. We have spent several years "prepping" ( I hate that word). But we have
made the decision to do it now.
We have spent some long days in those mountains on our property, clearing, building, learning. We both feel the time is right. It's not that we think
bad times are ahead, we just think "It aint getting any damn better either". House is up for sale. As soon as it's sold we are gone. No internet, no
tv, radio, and shortwave radio, and possibly a newspaper from the local town.
My wife & I both feel as if we are living in the wrong time period the wrong era. We embrace the life we are getting ready to live, as if we are going
home. Our kids are grown & gone, recent events of this summer in our neighborhood & lives helped our decision along. These times we find ourselves in
are crappy at best, we see no good out come in so many different areas it's laughable.
I will stay a member of ATS till the house sells, I have enjoyed my time as a member and will sign off when the time comes. I'm 49 my wifes 52 we have
a lot of years of life left, we just want to live it as we want. It may sound boring, but sitting on that back porch and watching the sun set over
those mountains, That's as good as it gets for me & mine. Watching it rise aint to bad either. So folks,hope you all have a great day, week, year,
life. It;s time for me & my wife to finally live ours.On our terms & conditions.
