    Only one question..where is the garden? You got to have one.


  • the guy on "into the wild" died from eating the wrong berry from a plant.
    also since mankind has been around we have been using natural herbal remedies to heal and cure ailments in the body and mind. 
    also you dont have interest if you dont buy things you cant afford

    not a reality for most of us.  also, all the gas and energy it took to create this lifestyle may have made up for the solar panels and rain collection.  Also, solar panels take more energy to create than they can produce.  Basically you get to live in the woods and not depend on someone else so that is the point and they should have focused on that instead of "saving the planet."

    40 years payback for off grid PV with battery bank isn't far off...
    and PV isn't done after 15 or 25 years. There are panels made in the early 80s that have only lost 6% effeciency...

    The guy described in the book "Into The Wild" died of starvation and cold... Certainly its possible to live off grid, humans have always, until a few short decades ago.  It depends on your lifestyle; of course, now you have to pay for land and pay taxes or its seized from you; 150 years ago land was available for the settling on it and food, fuel and clean water were abundant.  Good luck if you got an injury or illness though.  We traded off a feeling of 'security'; nearness to medical care and grocery stores along with canned entertainment, and pay for it with a lifetime's worth of slave labor and interest payments.
