Living off the grid can be one of the best decisions you can make if you enjoy being more independent, paying fewer bills and being completely free.
In order to truly be self reliant, you have to develop systems that take care of you automatically. If you live off grid but you have to truck in your water every week, you’re not self reliant yet.
