 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.

Off the Grid in Oz Tiny Houses


We are very excited to announce that we are now selling Off the Grid Tiny Houses and Tiny House Trailers. For all the information about this, please visit Off the Grid in Oz Tiny Houses

Kezzeeens Kreations
Introducing Kezzeens Kreations

One of my favorite Off Grid things I like to do is to create my own lotions and potions.

I have been playing around with creating natural lotions and potions for about 40 years. We use them to help keep us healthy, and without the need to buy products which contain a lot of nasty unnatural chemicals.

I have been asked many times why don't I sell my products? Well now I do. :)

My daughter, Neen, a beautiful woman, both inside and out, and now a mother of 4 delightful children herself, is now following in my footsteps. Together we are now offering our natural homemade products for other people to share their benefits.

We are not a large company obviously and all our products are made by hand in our own homes and we use only the best ingredients. We create with organic, raw and natural stuff. We do not mass produce and the products may change as to whatever we have available at any given time. You can ask us to make something special for you if you like.

We are also Doterra Wellness Advocates and not only use their oils to help us in our daily lives, but we include them in our products. If you would like to know how to buy your Doterra Essential Oils at wholesale prices, please talk to us.

We welcome you to our new venture and hope that you find something that you would like to try.
