A new reality show featuring a family determined to be completely self sufficient begins on Glenn Beck's channel. It is called Independence U.S.A.

You can check it out at www.independenceusa.com

I didn't get that impression at all...preparedness? Yes. Self reliance, yes.

Fear? No.

I have no fear, ST...it is more about exiting teh rat race & having an earlier retirement. It has nothing to do with end of teh world survivial scenarios...wise up mane!

Some of the comments and links within this forum are promoting Armageddon; not retirement Jimmy. Listen to this weeks William Henry program. Pretty much covers my concerns for just about a year regarding fear porn. Col North, appears to me anyways, hangs on every word that spews out of Glenn Beck's mouth.

Although there are a few interesting website links, and provision suggestions within this forum; Off The Grid turned out to be a selling point to fearful people.


This is what Off The Grid means to me:

There was an even better reality show on PBS called Homesteaders. 3 families lived like 1860's pioneers over ethe summer and into winter.
A great show, I wish I could see again.

If you roll it all into exit startegy, retirement or survival it's still a hard life to live.

The circle of life sure has some sharp edges!

I do not get A&E but I did
love PBS Homesteaders watching
it from my comfy living room..
I thought perhaps if I did live
back then I would probably
come up with a healthy Hand
and Face cream for the ladies :-)

Homesteaders, great show! I think too, you have to be prepared on a mental/spiritaul level. If you have no intuition when to go/leave, or whatever, no amount of $$$, or stuff will keep you alive...

Here's off the grid (to varying degrees)for me-

in CBC TV sometimes :-)

Done correctly, chickens are very quiet and clean. More than 3, would depend on the size of the lot I guess...

anna, I have been to your blog, and am going back now. I am really enjoying it. I love your pantry in your spare room. I have also begun to make preparations for a spare pantry in my bedroom, in a large storage cabinet very similar in size to this one:

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Ameriwood-Industries-Storage-Pantry-in-Oak/15109903

I have had the cabinet (which was my mothers) for almost 20 years, and it's a good thing, based on what they sell for now. There's no way I would spend that much for one.

I am slowly adding to my stock for it, but I only recently began. I'm having to do a little at a time, due to finances.

I am slowly culling down the various "stuff" I have in closets, so that I can free up a full-sized closet to use for a pantry.

Anyway, thanks again for posting about your blog. Looks like I can learn a lot from you!

OOPS, anna, I forgot to tell you that I lived in Ontario, Oregon for a while back in the early 1970s.

Hey thanks for visiting my blog! I have bought a little over time too, and it does add up! You just do what you can, when you can... and it all helps. I posted some new info/questions on the spring food preservation class I'm taking. Helpful stuff...
