When I started doing research to learn how I could travel off the grid, I was surprised by all the different ways people suggested I should go about it. The first was to hitch a ride on an RV and camp out in the middle of nowhere, I assume. The second was to follow simple instructions that were posted on the Internet, I assume. And the third was to search for articles about how to live off the grid in Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, or the Philippines.
I didn’t think about the first option, because the idea seemed so ridiculous. I mean, how in the world would you live in an RV? There’s no way you could get along with other people in an RV. It seems like they’d have to be on opposite sides of the world to have even a little bit of communication. In addition, living in an RV would probably be more uncomfortable than staying in a cozy house in a bay.
So I tried the second option, I assume, because it sounded more appealing to me. But in fact, it turned out to not be as appealing as I thought it would be. Living in an RV means that you have to go to work, you have to eat at a certain place, you have to dole out money for basic necessities and you have to deal with the constant interruption of people wanting to use your toilet. Plus, living in a clear water bay, the only natural source of water, is a lot easier. Plus, if you’re bored, you can stay up all night and not have to worry about dealing with your neighbors.
But what I’ve realized is that there are many advantages to living off the grid. For one thing, I’ll never have to worry about buying gas again. I’ll also never have to worry about paying for electricity or water since these things are supplied by the earth itself. Plus, I’ll never have to deal with traffic jams again, I can go wherever I want whenever I want and I don’t have to carry stuff with me because I can walk everywhere and I don’t have to rely on public transportation like the city buses and the subway system.
There are many reasons why living off the grid is the best way to live and you should definitely consider it. One reason is the fact that you’ll be much healthier. It’s hard to exercise if you’re not in shape. But when you live off the grid, you get the benefit of getting up and going outside to do some exercise. And when you get older and you have health problems, you’ll be much healthier since you were able to take advantage of being outdoors all the time and still be able to live as long as you want.
Your life will also be a lot more enjoyable. When you have no electricity or running water, you’ll experience life to its fullest. You’ll be able to appreciate nature and see the good around you. It really is a beautiful thing and you’ll realize just how lucky you are.
