My first blog…..
After searching online to feed my own interest in living “off the grid” and “being “self sustainable” in Australia I did not really find what i was after. I guess you can’t please everyone. With varied results and not really satisfied in what i had found i figured i would try to share my experience in making a dream of mine into a reality with the possibility of helping others along the way.
For some years now I have worked in the commercial construction industry at various locations around Australia. At some stage a few years back a small question crept into the back of my head and continued to lurk there for some time.
Every now and then a flash light would shine accross it What is it all for?
I could not answer this question along with many other questions that decided to tag along with it…. where do I want to be in life?, whats the purpose? and am I really happy with this lifestyle. After some time i came to the conclusion that i had one life to experience and i did not want to be dragging my sorry Ass around various construction sites for the duration.
With a number of factors to influence my decision The constant disappointment when watching the news, price and quality of food, a slight claustrophobic feeling of time slipping away just to mention a couple. I decided that before I was 40 years of age i was going to live off the land self-sustained and completely off the grid for at the least 1 year.
Subsequently my at the time fiance and I started searching for our piece of land to stake a claim to and the journey of our new life begins from their.
This Blog will consist of the learning curve we have and will be taking whilst building our self sufficient farm and living off the land in the mid north coast of N.S.W Australia.
