Life Off The Grid

Posted on May 22, 2020 at 4:30pm 0 Comments

Have you thought about life off the grid?

One reason I love my Westy so much is because it is self contained. It has all the things you lose when you go off the grid.

Think about it. Off grid means no electricity, water & plumbing. 

My Westy has a battery, water tank and porta potty. It has a gas…

Hey Mike - it was wonderful to meet you and share a "Texas-sized breakfast".  I cant wait to see what might come from you visit in Portland...maybe setting up shop:).  Anyway, thanks for your kindness and genuine spirit!

Hi Mike, thanks for sending me that article. I realised the situation was getting pretty bad, but not to that extent. I have a BBC news app on my phone that is my main source of news at the moment, and there is a section specific to Latin America, but none of this has even had a mention. Just goes to show that even large, international news sources are following the Correa line, which is appalling.

It's hard to believe how far its escalated. I fell in love with Ecuador when I was there and its awful to see what's happening to it. Not sure what we can do to help other than trying to make more people aware?

Thank you so much for introducing me to your wonderful Zoobird, Mike I am so lucky that I met you at the hostel. Please keep feeding me more precious information about Portland and life.

Hi Mike! I know, our Galapagos trip really was wonderful wasn't it? It's such a shame what's happening there at the moment, to think that the next generation might not get to see what we did. What horrifies me the most is how little the world seems to care, it's been a week and still not even a mention in any of the news here.

Hopefully we can get some support behind the Galapagenos!

Thanks for sharing this page with me, it looks like an interesting space, but it might take me a while to figure out how to use it properly! :P

Nice to meet you too!

Thanks, Michael!  I followed links from the pics of the stingrays, but did that mostly because I liked what you said about yourself.  I love to have similar birds  "in my space".  :-)

Thanks Mike.  Took a little bit to sign up since you told me about it but happy I did.

Several years ago a gathering of international stone masons met in Barre Vt for a weeklong symposium.  I'm standing under an arch built by a novice so I couldn't wait for the race which started under the arch to begin.

Building walls without mortar is my new passion.  The long standing passion that brought me to this site  is bicycling.  Are there any cycle savvy members here?
