July 22nd, 2015 by Off The Grid

Its SATURDAY so I headed out to the flea market for stuff for the Off Grid camper. Forget the fact that it is freezing cold with lots of snow and ice on the ground. Its deal hunting season at the flea market because I need to save money for this upcoming move into the camper. In preparation for the off the grid move I have also been sorting through a LOT of stuff that has accumulated over the years. So I took several boxes of miscellaneous cloths, odds and ends, kitchen items, household nick knacks, and whatever was not wanted to a couple of guys at the flea market. You can save a lot of money when buying used. Today’s episode was a short one so stay tuned next time for more because each day brings me closer to actually being off the grid in my new camper.

Today’s podcast was recorded back in February 2015 along my journey before I was “Off Grid”.

Living off the grid and looking for solar panels? Keep an eye out on your local Craigslist for some great deals! I found two smaller solar panels that are about the size of a piece of paper. These two have cracks in the glass but they work and for $10 each they were a buy for free power from the sun. The other two solar panels are much larger! The larger two are 85 watt solar panels. I got the larger two solar panels, a charge controller, and a remote amp meter for only $250!! I was so happy to have these and at such a good deal. Online these were all going for more than $500 for all. If you have every wanted to save money on solar panels for your off grid house, camper, or cabin then Craigslist is the way to go! You can also check out your local flea markets, swap meets, and yard sales to save a lot of money in the long run.

Today’s show was recorded about midnight after a short exercise round of pushups so if I sound a little winded that’s why. I was also a bit tired. Continuing the countdown to moving into the camper it is now 9 days to go. This was a short episode but I wanted to document each day because this was going to be a big change for me and an adventure to say the least! lol Thank you if you have started listening early. I am posting these off the grid podcast episodes as fast as I can to get current (5+ months of shows recorded) 😉
