Welcome, can't wait to hear how you solve some of the key off-grid challenges...

How do you do running water?
How do you do electricity?
What do you use for heat, or air conditioning?
How do you handle sewage and garbage?
What do you do for income (for those things you can't make yourself)?

Gazrok, thanks and I will try to answer the best I can :) let me first preface this by saying I have been here just over a year now, so I am still converting things over.
Running water: I still have the city hookups. I do have a 350 gallon tank in the garage to collect rainwater. Manual hand pump.
Electric: still have utility hookups for major appliances. I have a small solar hookup for everything else.
Heat/ac: no ac. Dont miss it. House stays very cool in summer. Heaters run off solar.
Sewage: septic system...trash I recycle and compost.
Income: work in IT for now ad database administrator

@bgoldstuff. Lol yeah so I am not totally off grid but working there. Lol my first step was getting off facebook ha! A bit apprehensive about getting youtube going. Would rather be more covert. Seen alot of people hounded by trolls and made miserable...not into that lol.

Anyone elses thoughts on posting preps in public?
