That's why I stay inside with warm blankets, long underwear, and good wool socks.
Some assembly required. 3 years and counting. It will take another couple years to reach better sustainable levels.
It’s more than living off-grid. It’s getting g off of plastics, processed foods, and anything that bad for you. That takes time and determination.
I would say it is harder today. Many of the earlier materials were better quality and a lot of junk is coming from China. Those won't last for years, and no one can afford to replace various components year after year. I also got most of our pieces before the prices went up. If you want to consider it, I would wait for inflation to cool for a few years.Knowing what you know now, how many years would it take you to assemble your off-grid set again if you both were to start from scratch today? Same three years, less than 3 years say 1.5?
