Many people like the idea of living off the grid. You do not have to worry about traffic. You can grow your own food and have animals. You can use solar power. However, some people do not want to give up their modern conveniences. You will have to get water from a well. Instead of using the restroom, you will have to use an outhouse. You probably can’t use the Internet or the TV.

Living off the grid, was the way people live in the past 50 years ago in Brazil in farms and small cities. Nowadays nobody can imagine living without conveniences.

Sometimes all people for least one day will want to live off the grid, but in my opinion this it not a solution for our problems because as the own article said us its terrible you want hot water or ice cream or TV or many things like convenience that all us like and not have in living off the grid.
