Honest to goodness, the best thing I’ve seen on the web all week is the “Off Grid Video Series” from LDS Prepper.
This guy is awesome!
What exactly is it?
Well, while his wife was out of town recently, he decided to go completely off grid for 7 days–No city water, electricity, or gas (I can vouch for waiting till your wife is out of town to try something like this!).
What followed was a series of 7 really good videos, chronicling his adventures to: water his garden using his rain catchments, prepare meals, wash dishes, take showers, flush the toilet, power his fridge, and much more!
He shows all the preps he has in place, talks about how they’re working, and where they could be improved.
The last of the 7 videos is actually a recap video, where he talks about his “ahas”, take-aways, and resources for viewers to refer to for purchasing similar preps or further investigation.
As somebody who’s attempted similar exercises, I tip my hat to LDS Prepper for his efforts, and learned a lot from watching him. Nice job brother!
If you dig these vids, be sure to leave him a comment or PM letting him know!
