Suzie needs her special pair of jeans for the big high school dance tonight...its 20 minutes before the shin dig. What do you do? One wash load on hyper speed for one pair of jeans to avoid social disaster for Suzie? If you lived off line, with no power, Suzie would have washed the jeans yesterday and hung them to dry in front of the wood heater in the cathedral living room. Heck, in the middle of a Maine winter, need some moisture in the place to offset the dry air anyway. Could you live off grid ? On your way home from work, you would stop into the market for tonight's meal. You do not have a giant freezer filled with who knows what at home when you live off grid, with solar, gas or other types of home made power. Could you heat with wood, get your domestic hot water from a coil in the woodstove? Could you live without a freezer with thirty seven flavors turning to crystal and utlimately thrown out if not eaten? How do you think the earlier settler's did it? Is your ideal of camping...a microwave in the 5th wheel that has a satellite dish for movies? Could you grow your own vegtables, beef and make your own preserves, wool mittens and be pretty much self sufficient? Visit this site to see if you could have what it takes to tread lightly and go green in a big way. Your family would appreciate resources and hard work a whole lot more too right?
