The check is in the mail

Well we finally did it!! We decided to go with the Super Ger Yurt from Groovy Yurts, it will be delivered in June.  We have an amazing amount of work ahead.  Time to start liquidating the vast majority of our possessions from this materialistic life that we have grown accustomed to, it was great while it lasted but it’s time to get back in touch with our true selves!!  We need to start working on plans for our deck that the Yurt will go on.  Then we need to build the platform that will go under the Yurt on the deck.  Other things that need to be done include getting the plans ready to build an outhouse, find a good stove that we can use to stay warm, figure out how we will have internet connectivity as our workplace is being awesome and giving us the opportunity to work remotely, plus many more things that I am sure will pop up as this transition continues to take shape!!  Feel free to leave your suggestions, thoughts and advice below!!

    1. Thanks for the comment, Thomas. The short answer is Yes, very much so. The term “off-grid” means different things to different people, but here is one definition that seems appropriate here, “Off-the-grid (OTG) can refer to living in a self-sufficient manner without reliance on one or more public utilities. Off-the-grid homes are autonomous; they do not rely on municipal water supply, sewer, natural gas, electrical power grid, or similar utility services.” While we will be off the power grid and living in a self sufficient manner for the most part, we are fortunate enough to be able to keep our jobs and work remotely. We generate the electricity to make this happen and will certainly still need connectivity to the world wide web. Since we’ll be on the net for work, we felt that maybe others out there will benefit from the lessons we will learn on this journey and decided to share. We will miss Florida too!! Hope you can come out and see us.

    1. Doubtful we can have any cable or fiber optic at this place because it’s so remote (and no street address). So far, our plan is to make use of the excellent Verizon signal and use a hot spot for computing. We’ll keep you posted as we are made aware of other options. Must have Netflix!!
