Imagine living an off-grid life and needing cash only a few times a year – say, those handful of times when you go to town. For all but one day each month, you don’t even need your wallet.
That’s the life for off-gridder J. David Cox, who along with his wife Sally ditched the city about 15 years ago and moved to a remote island in beautiful British Columbia, hours from civilization. For him, a trip to the store involves a boat ride, a logging road … and lots of patience.
As he says, cash in such a setting is pointless. What are you going to do with it?
Cox is this week’s guest on Off The Grid Radio. He tells us:
- How he and his wife built their home, by themselves, from scratch – when they were in their 50s.
- Why he wanted to leave a well-paying job and move off-grid.
- What he would tell anyone who is considering moving off-grid.
Cox – the author of “Choosing Off The Grid” and “Our Life Off The Grid” – also shares with us a few wildlife stories, including one involving whales!
If you’ve ever wanted to live in a scenic, remote off-grid home, then this week’s show is for you!
