Off Grid Living Expert High Desert of Arizona
John moved off grid after the pandemic left him without a job. He's over 100 miles from the nearest city. He harvests his own water and produces much of his own food on his homestead in the middle of nowhere.
He came out to the high desert of Arizona with no job and very little savings. He quickly got to work, making sure that he would have plenty of food, water and shelter.
After one year off grid he released a book on Amazon detailing how he successfully started a homestead and small business with next to nothing. This book soon became a number one best seller in multiple categories.
Now, after two years off grid John has a rain harvesting system in place which provides him with roughly 40 gallons of water each day on average. He has a hoop house and a geothermal greenhouse setup to use very little water which he can grow in year round in addition to several hugelkulturs and raised bed gardens. As well as a 3600 gallon pond to water gardens and livestock as well as a 3600 gallon hand dug cistern. Soon he'll be able to store 14000 gallons of water in storage containers he's built on the cheap. He keeps goats, pigs, and chickens and recently harvested his first goat. His 10kw solar system provides enough power to run his online tea business and to power his fridge, freezer, lights, radio, laptop etc.
His second homesteading book "Two years homesteading off the grid alone." Is another best seller on Amazon.
John has documented every day from the day he first located his vacant property to now where he comfortably lives full time in his van.
