Jaimie and her family live off grid and chronicle their adventures on An American Homestead.com and focus on being self-sufficient. Their only connection to the grid is through a phone line. They are able to get high speed internet through the phone line that is connected to and powered by a solar panel. Their goal with their website is to teach other people the preparedness and homestead skills that they have learned firsthand.
Jaimie said that she does not miss electricity; running water, on the other hand, would be nice to have – and they are working on it! Listen to hear why they choose to live off grid, how they choose to use their limited solar power, why they have a guard donkey instead of a dog, the item she could not live without, a typical household task that becomes hard, why they went with modular housing, how the compostable toilet works, and more!
