A few years ago I was in a relationship that was almost the death of me. Surviving domestic violence does not end at the physical violence. I am in costant fear that “he” will find us to finish the job he attempted to do. After being shot in the chest with a 22 hunting rifel by my at the time husband and surviving I realized that my child and I need a safe haven. The recovery of the injuries to my heart, lungs, liver, kidneys and intestines was a battle, but not as much of a battle as staying hidden and safe.
Being found is the worst feeling I have had. So….We bought land, we setup a 5 arce safe place and went offf grid.
How off grid did we go?
Well here is what we do this far:
🌵Water is brought in using 5 gal water jugs to a tower that we fill and then have a hose to our trailer.
🌵For power we use Renogy Solar pannels and our Champion generator.
🌵Heating, cooking and fridge run off propane.
🌵No TV, No outside utilities period.
Now we do have our cell phones, tablets and laptop….but we keep a low profile. We also have started our garden but are learning that it feeds the iguanas….🐊
The things we are builing and have built so far are primarily out of recycled items. There is nothing like building a place you can find peace, sanity and feel safe.
Keep your eyes open for blogs on tips and tricks we have learned as well as how to postings.
