Thoughts about LIving Off Grid

It's interesting that most people think of living off grid as strange or extreme.  It saddens me to think about how difficult it is to truly live the, "American Dream".  Despite the state of the economy, many brave individuals have proven that living this way is not only healthier, smarter and better for the environment, but also that it is very doable on a small budget. Unfortunately, there are many unbelievably ridiculous obstacles preventing others, who so desire, from living self-sufficient lives. 

I recently watched Garbage Warriors, the documentary featuring architect Michael Reynolds' three year journey through off-grid earth-ship pioneering hell and back. 

It's very long but well worth it.  You can watch the documentary here.
