            I guess other than my gun club, credit card/bank account i have open, having a job and insurance its pretty hard to find me. Also have the same name as a famous person so that helps as even if i was online it would be difficult.

            so thats what you zoomers confuse with on/off grid? online presence?

              Being off/on the grid means a couple things, sir. Also. I'm 36. Not a zoomie.

              1) Energy Grid. You are referencing power and gas. If you don't drive anywhere, you minimize the gas you use. If you have a home, there is a pretty good chance you have electricity unless its a remote cabin in the woods somewhere, which are usually not permanent residences. For 99% of people, they pay for electricity from a 3rd party and don't create their own. I have seen some homes with very unique and cool energy methods, self sufficient stuff to an extent too, but for the most part they all have a tie into the local electric company at some level. Would be very interested to talk to someone who isn't/wasn't. I have a real fireplace and it helps heat the home in winter, but ultimately I still have a furnace.
              2) Digital/Internet Presence. In order to buy a home you usually need good credit, have an online checking account or bank account. A job and or proof that you can pay the mortgage, unless you inherited a home or something outright. As far as online presence. There are absolutely things you can do to stay away from 'the matrix' and big tech's information grabbing system, which is everywhere. They have a profile on you no matter what you do, so the key is to minimize it. When I switched from having social media and using chrome for everything to take steps to minimize my presence I saw huge changes in the algorithms.
              3) Self sufficiency, this includes food. Its generally impossible to live completely off what you kill and grow, but you can definitely get >75% of it and that is a huge win both financially and probably from a health aspect too. I know when I rip green onions out of the ground they're fresh for 3 weeks where as if I don't eat them within 3 days from the grocery store they're starting to go bad.

                its basic meaning is still off power/water/sewage grid and thats what 99% of people think off. you can try to redefine it all you want into some schizo leave no trace thing it wont change shit.
                off grid is a measurable thing, its the state of a housing, where you simply walk around it inside and out
                >yep, no wires and plumbing
                >this house is off grid
                you talk about a lifestyle or mindset.

                and the most common reason to be off grid is simply you have a cabin in the middle of absolute nowhere where such things simply dont exist. nothing special about it people used to live like that not long ago.

                I’m not getting into a semantics argument with you Mr Autist.

                I’m just saying minimizing your grid footprint, whichever grid that may be, is in peoples best interest in my humble opinion. Not everyone can just pickup and leave society. God knows some days I want to, but I’m not rolling my kid out of school and dry aging all my meat and walking outside 30 yards to an outhouse to shit

                If you are referencing the electrical grid than yes. If you're referencing the internet grid or land than no.

                Also what about pirates? All pirates are off the grid. They live in the seas and don't have a permanent residence or pay taxes.

                the most comfy thing you can do is so unthinkable for someone so they choose something with less effort instead

                I never said I'm impossible to find. For fucks sake it would be easy if you're in the government. I just said I like to minimize my presence online and stay away from the big tech data gathering technocratic data mining for both my mental health and out of spite to those Silicon Valley gays.

                And yes, obviously the internet doesn't heat your house or give you water you half-a-meatball. But without the internet life would be extremely difficult to anyone that isn't retired in 2022. You could definitely do it if you were retired or had no kids or no financial obligations, but haven't met a single person in that boat. Even homeless people owe back taxes

                Point thar everyone is trying to get through to you is that offgrid doesn't have anything to do with the internet. It's not being hooked up to grid utilities do you see it yet?

                I understand that; I'm explaining to you people that the internet and data mining they are engaging in is much more invasive and tyrannical. There is literally no point in being off the grid if you are on the internet. Which, by default, everybody in this thread is.

                Unless of course you're just trying to be self sufficient with water, sewage, and electricity, which I have yet to see anyone do 100% except for 'secondary homes' like a cottage.

          I don't want to shittalk about vanlifers but I couldn't choose it personnaly because whatever your way of describing the grid, you are in it :
          >You depend on public facilities : roads, water where you stay
          >they keep the internet
          >you drive a big machine someone else made for you with components coming from everywhere...
          >you depends are private services for gas, reparations,...
          >you thus depends on the public service of money. You need regular money even.
          Van life is not off grid, that's why women and couples do it. It's even very connected to a society, even more for "digital nomads" and all those who in fact build the coming world with a work in technology and media.
          It's nice but very very normy, modern and very dependant.

Why does the chair in the corner look like a CG render, and why does the sofa not match the back wall? Why does her lighting slightly mismatch the rest of the room, and the sofa deformations not quite look right, but her hair and arm drape so naturally? Why the bizarre photoshop halo on that lamp, and no reflections or scattered light from it?

I got all the licenses to keep the government from showing up to fuck with me, I also have a few friends and family who know where I am.
