Hi all!!

Been a long time lurker but decided to finally register so I thought i'd introduce myself. My name is Chris and i'm living down on the border of Mexico in the Chihuahuan Desert with my wife and 2 little girls. We've got a little place here we call "Timeless Ranch" that is basically off-grid + internet.

We're working hard to make our ranch more self sustainable and we're experimenting with a number of things with our main focus being regreening of the desert by building trincheras , putting in ponds, etc. Our next project is to complete a rocket mass heater for our cabin so we can stop using propane and then we want to try to build a big pit greenhouse for growing here in the desert.

It's all an experiment and we're learning as we go but if you want you can check out our blog to follow our adventures in off-grid living.

Looking forward to meeting more folks from out here and helping out where I can as well.

See you around!
For my next trick, I'll need the help of a tiny ad ...
