I’m having a blast out here in these snowy conditions! The storm has increased in intensity so I hunkered down at camp with my furry adventure pal, Sierra, for the day. I’ll be camping here for another few days before rolling on to a different location closer to where some other friends are camping. I LOVE WINTER CAMPING SEASON, really glad it’s here!

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN OFF-GRID AND SELF SUFFICIENT HOMESTEADING
Definition of “Off-Grid”: Off-the-grid or off-grid is a characteristic of buildings and a lifestyle designed in an independent manner without reliance on one or more public utilities. The term “off-the-grid” traditionally refers to not being connected to the electrical grid, but can also include other utilities like water, gas, and sewer systems, and can scale from residential homes to small communities.
Self-sufficient means needing no outside help in satisfying one’s basic needs, especially about the production of food, and homesteading means living a lifestyle of self-sufficiency. So by those definitions, the key to homesteading is learning to be self-sufficient.
