Living off the grid, isn't it way too romanticized? (AMA) by Change Bossoms - Fri, 17 Feb 2017 10:14:34 EST ID:APyi2HHG No.38209 Ignore Report Quick Reply

Had the idea long time ago, when I was way younger to just fuck it all
and live on a farm with some friends.

I gave it a try and lived nearly 2 years on a farm (still not completely off the grid!), worked, ate, slept ther
and had a small wooden trailer to live in.

Most energy came from generators and gas.powered heaters.

Winter time sucked, since heaters made it way too hot and heat-preservation was only good in the barn, where hay-balls were placed unter the roof.

Toilet was a chemical box
or a real toilet, that was in the house of my "co-workers" outside.

At some point, when you had to consider bathing or just going naked with a morning-wood to the bathroom impossible
I just said "fuck it!", lived on welfare for a short time
and got a relatively nice job to pay for the rent in a cozy flat!

Sure, its a overwhelming feeling, waking up, seeing the sun go up and starting work a t your pace while still regenerating from work of the last days.

But I am sure, the only reason for this "euphoric" feeling many dropouts describe is just a small thing that keeps you alive in a cave-man status.
