John, a man living off-grid in the high desert for over two years, shares his frugal and self-sufficient lifestyle. He lives in a van and trailer, feeds his animals, collects eggs, and filters rainwater using a simple two-bucket system. Despite being miles away from the nearest town, he finds happiness and fulfillment in his simple lifestyle, and encourages others to join him. John believes that being passionate and putting effort into living off-grid is more important than being a “manly man.” He also values frugality, having grown up poor, and enjoys living in a way that he thrives on. John’s self-sufficiency extends to his homemade shower system, which runs on propane and rainwater from an IBC tote. He uses the hot water sparingly to conserve water. Overall, John finds that life off-grid is calmer and gives him more time to think, and he finds happiness in his self-sufficient lifestyle.
