Episode 105: Examining the Reality of Living Off The Grid

living off grid

Have you have ever had a dream that you held onto for years with hopes of one day making it a reality? Then found yourself finally attaining that goal pausing for a time to examine the reality of your new found accomplishment for what it is? Well that has been on my mind a lot lately.. even more so now that it is about a year after I began my journey off grid. Today’s show is more in line with the journal side of the podcast in that I am sharing some of the psychological aspects I’ve recently come to recognize when living off grid. Living off the grid has had its ups and downs laced with many challenges both personal and physical. Mother nature always seems to keep me on my toes with the multitude of various wild animal antics, insects, and constantly changing elements of the weather. All in all it seems as though I am entering a new phase on my walk of life as I have found myself closely examining what it is to live off the grid. Aside from the obvious like not having running water or power everything else seems to be a little more clear now when looking back to my life when I was on the grid. I will save most of this for the conversation in today’s show so you can hear for yourself because I want to make sure this episode is posted at a reasonable time (this afternoon as opposed to late at night). So please stay tuned to the end of the show for a treat if you love the sounds of nature. Thank you again for joining me on this journey and for continuing to listen! 🙂 In case you were wondering the featured image for today’s podcast episode was taken last year on a trip to Shenandoah national park up on the mountain side. It was so beautiful up there!
