Re: New descriptions for old concepts....

I met an "off the grid ' person last October, they lived just outside of Show Low in Arizona, they had Solar panels - storing spare electricity in batteries, internet via Satellite and endless supply of fire wood (they lived in a forested mountainous area). They had a well and small waste/toilet system.

I think that they had to drive a bit to get Cell phone coverage (mobile phone to us Brits) but then in the UK reliable cell phone coverage would also be a luxury <g>
