Axe resting in a stump

    Amen, thanks for a ‘real’ explanation of off-grid living.
    After 20+ years living in Alaska and 14 of those semi off-grid (I say semi because though no electricity, water, cell phone or internet and 130 mile round trip to Fairbanks) my cabin was only 1/4 mile from that road to town.
    Now out of state due to health I do miss my cabin of solitude
    where when I walked out the door
    I could experience
    the handiwork of God that surrounded me.

      No problem! It’s frustrating when people make assumptions, but have no idea what really being off-grid means. I consider a dry cabin five miles outside of town to pretty much being a more quiet version of living in the city.

    Long time supporter, and thought I’d drop a comment.

    Your wordpress site is very sleek – hope you don’t mind me asking
    what theme you’re using? (and don’t mind if I steal it?


    I just launched my site –also built in wordpress like yours– but the theme
    slows (!) the site down quite a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google (would appreciate any feedback) – it’s still in the works.

    Keep up the good work– and hope you all take care of yourself during the coronavirus scare!

      Thank you, Justin! I’m using the Olsen theme and I’m not sure if it’s a premium theme or not (I don’t remember :/), I like it quite a lot, but you’re right it takes a bit of time to load. I’m currently trying to revamp the site and cut down on load time, but I’m also integrating some new things into my website at the moment, so it’s two steps forward, one step back! Thanks, I’ll take a look at your site a little later today and I’ll see if I can give you some feedback! I’m haven’t paid enough attention to my own site recently because of some independent contracting that I’ve been doing elsewhere, but it’s always a work in progress.
