Living Off Grid In Maine, Simple Day To Day Life.

Living Off Grid In Maine, Simple Day To Day Life.

Living off grid in Maine.

The motivation for a lot of reasons. The biggest one is to enjoy space that has always been at a premium. Pretty much non-existent. In areas where it is down to the inches not property acreage in measure the elbow room around a person day and night.

Not being able to get space is like always being out of breath, low or out of food and water.

Anxious, a suffocating feeling. That stress takes it toll on a body.

Worry about bothering someone or being in their face is not living. Living off grid to avoid people is not the goal. 

Getting sued or worse is a strong concern for some who are scared of others so they bolt. To avoid b Bodily harm coming your way is a fear leading to a fight or flight response anytime you open the dead bolt. Sliding the security chain is not needed in a small rural Maine setting if you are thinking of living off grid.

In city settings where you don’t know a soul in the sea of faces in the crowd. On the no room to wiggle out of the way sidewalk  where you mind your own business. Keep your wits about you and personal safety is on your mind daily. No fun but you can begin to think this is the norm everyone. No it is not. It is not like that day to day in Maine.

Maine offers the wide open, clean, natural space for off grid living.

The helpful people are resourceful and bartering is done a lot. We are cross trained. For survival and to get things that just not enough in the bank account to swing if hired out and store bought.

The fun becomes outdoor four season excursions up here in Maine. On trails through the woods. Paddling out on the open water of a crystal clean lake. Or fly fishing a stream as the sun rises or sets. The pace of life is sane. You can hear yourself think and everything is not a blur of faster faster. Get off that merry go round.

When you live in Maine full time, the scurry to get here for just one week’s worth of enjoyment is gone.

Because relax happens. Easy does it. Whew. Pace yourself is possible. You have all Maine can offer at your immediate disposal. At your fingertips round the clock. Neat huh? Not joking with you or pulling your leg. Vacations are supposed to be for having the time of your life. But what if you want more than one seven day or long holiday weekend stretch of “the time of your life”? That’s why many doing their homework on living off grid or just cutting back to remove the expensive clutter pick Maine for a simple land purchase in the beginning. 

Low cost property listings in Maine means no or very little mortgage.

Do not embrace over spending, going into heavy payment schedules. Mortgages are chains we are in one hurry to remove. 

Go easy does it on the resources, the shelling out the currency. Or extending credit lines. Because Maine land is plentiful, cheap, located in lots of private settings around the small towns, plantations and hamlets of Maine.

It is not all about money here in Maine.

Not spend, spend spending and instead constantly working hard to keep a lid on the wallet or purse cash outlay. Do it yourself being resourceful. You feel independent and confident. Not relying on others and the delay waiting for them to get around to help you. That is pre-school and outdated if you want to squeeze more out of life.

Low cost Maine land is the beginning to living the dream.

Saving up and spending below your means. To keep money for a rainy day, to sleep better nights that way. Not everyone living off grid but not wasting resources when plugged in either. Being respectful, protective of the environment too.
