A True Life Story of Living Off the Grid in Georgia
As I mentioned in part one, living off grid has many definitions and here is mine: living off the electric grid, drawing your own water from natural sources, having no land-line phone or cable TV, and living truly happy and as free as you can where the paved road ends.
My journey as a woman began in the Oconee National Forest in middle Georgia, learning to be as free and happy as can be and living off grid in the wilderness.
In part two of my living off grid, wilderness journey, I mentioned that the cold weather around Thanksgiving sent me packing to Florida to visit family. While in Florida, I continued living off grid in the Ocala National Forest, which is located just north of Orlando. This Florida wilderness adventure ended quickly and now I find myself returning to the hills of Georgia.
Returning to Middle Georgia
When I returned to the Oconee National Forest in middle Georgia, I tried camping in another area that had ground for my tent that did not slope at all. Living off grid in this part of the Georgia wilderness was very enjoyable and added to my experiences of my personal journey.
Georgia this winter is having unusual frigid temperatures and I kept waking to all water sources being completely frozen, including my bottled water and the dog’s water bowl. I learned to bring in a gallon of water inside the tent at night to keep it in liquid state.
