Living off the grid is a dream for many, and this is particularly true since the cost of living and living continue to rise.
While many survivalists enjoy developing their off grid land for use to be prepared for survival situations that will take place in the future, there are still many people who make off grid homes to live at full-time.
This is excellent news for preppers who live at their homestead full-time since their cost of living is considerably cut down. Consider for a moment what they would normally be spending on a home in a location where it's desirable to live!
Unfortunately some people who opt to live off grid run into problems. Many government officials have begun to crack down on this growing trend.
