Is it bad to live off grid?

I want to quit my job sell my house n buy 80 acres off the grid and rebuild a cabin I found. My family think I'm nuts. What is wrong with me? Lots of people do it.

There is a show I saw called Homestead Rescue and this family rescues those in distressed homesteads. I can understand wanting to live privately or remotely. You do need to ask yourself and be honest about why you really want that hard lifestyle.

I personally couldn't do it, especially not the killing animals/hunting stuff.

8 acres would be enough for me. :-)

Your family probably is most concerned about your safety and well-being. Good luck.

It's not nuts. Obviously, there will be many challenges to earn enough from farming to pay for things with only 80 acres. Perhaps try it virtually first?
