There was a time when living off the grid was just a fanciful, romantic notion with us.....we did all the things necessary to do it, but had actually done it so very little until this year. Suddenly we prefer to eschew the comforts of RV park living (electricity, sewer, water at your finger tips) and look forward to long stays in the middle of no where.....'unplugged'. There is something so liberating about 'boondocking'.....finding those places at little, or no cost which, at the same time, have that 'IT' factor we crave. This winter we have stayed at three 'boondocking' sites which have met our requirements in spades. It has really come down to gaining confidence in knowing we can go extended periods of time without plugging in, without needing more water, and without needing to dump our tanks. We have refined our skillset in managing these three resources (electrical use, fresh water use, generation of waste) to the extent now where we could see ourselves going 3 weeks without replenishment and disposal, and that will be our goal next year.
We had a super cold night Wednesday night....it got down to 32 degrees here in Goosenecks, which we were expecting. Remarkably our batteries had only lost 5% of their charge overnight, so we start today at 95%.......life is very good!
Thanks for stopping by!
