Living off the grid, and sometimes not seeing a town for over a month. I was constantly searching for a way to to get raw foods, or greens into my diet, that's when I discovered sprouting a perfect solution for anybody who stays out for long periods of time.

Day 1096

Figured I would blog a short celebratory post for myself :) Dec 18th 2009  makes it 3 years ago today since I walked away from the rat race, and pursued a nomadic off the grid lifestyle. Looking back all I can say is its a great freedom, being able to call each day your own.
