"The concept of off-grid living is often encumbered by numerous false assumptions and associations. Many think that to delve into the lifestyle you must be either a grizzled anti-social mountain man, a pompous starry-eyed hippie, or, a criminal on the lam. The spectrum of characterizations range from 'kooky' bunker building militia members to spoiled Al Gore worshipping vegan hipsters out to prove they are better than everyone else by reducing their 'carbon footprint.' The point is, for the average television-fed American, the idea of off-grid life automatically conjures visions of the extreme." (02/14/12)
