 Steve's Rants Steve said about these videos: "After many years spent doing this off grid stuff and watching the world fall further into an irreversible dive ... I have moments when frustration does escape from within me.. This is unedited, unstaged .. just straight up how I feel and it came flooding out..." Steve talks (maybe rants a bit) about the harsh realities of life in todays world and why it is a good idea to be self reliant and off the grid. We live off the grid in Central Victoria, Australia and although our world is comparativly safe here, there is still a need for people to think about being self reliant, because you just never know what is around the corner. Prep, prep prep is the plan. Warning the language can be harsh as well as the message.
The Harsh Reality Given Straight up.

Well we finally got the new garden started. We are building our garden within a shade cloth house that surrounds the outside kitchen. Very convenient for not only working in the garden but when you harvest you are already in the kitchen so you can start cooking.
