Yes, I feel for you! I just realized yesterday, had my daughter with new permit drive me to the grocery store and then she helped me every step (even when the battery died and left us at the store ha) The difference between having 2 toddlers on my hip and having 2 teens that can help me. I do wish I would have been able to raise them off the grid because they don't realize the full value of land paid for and no mortgage. That leads me to ask "What is the most important reason you went off grid? What would be so important to you that you'll do what ever it takes to live a more simple life? It was brought up to make a agenda or list and budget to go off grid. I have tried this and its not easy.

My husband and I have a fairly high tolerance level & we both like it off grid. Things break, it's harder to keep things clean, and so on.
I think it'll get simpler again in a few years when the kids are out of the house.

I would love to know how, and in what order did successful people go off grid.
