I’m not sure if you’ve mentioned this series before, but on YouTube there is a video series called “Off the Grid” hosted by Les Stroud of Survivorman fame. He moves his family out of the city and into the country in search of an off-the-grid home and lifestyle. It’s a fairly realistic look and (I think) good introduction to what it would take to make the jump to living in the country and self-sufficiently.
The other videos in the series can be found linked from the first page, or just search for “Off the Grid”. Hope you enjoy this, and I think many of the SurvivalBlog readers would too.
I hope you and your family are well, – Jason U.
