This is the first in a series describing how you can live either rent or mortgage free, for the rest of your life! Living in one of the areas I point out allows you to no longer pay your monthly rent to a Landlord or a banker, instead, you can pay yourself and become the Lord of your own life. Having all that extra income means you can live a much higher quality of life than you could any other way. I'll show you how to 1) disperse camp free on National Forest or BLM land, 2) stay at Ehrenberg, AZ for free, 3) create a free homestead at Slab City, 4) live on Quechen Indian land for $80 a year, 5) stay at a Long Term Visitor Area year-around, 6) buy an Annual New Mexico State Parks Pass that lets you stay for free at any of their State Park Campgrounds for $225 a year, and finally,7) Live at the Coyote Howls RV Park for $500 a year. With all these options, I think everyone who watches my videos should give very serious thought to becoming a full-time nomad and living the life of their dreams! No matter how cheap your budget, you can learn something from this video about how to turn your car, van, caravan or RV into a surprisingly cheap mobile, tiny house on wheels! Then you can live the life of your dreams by adopting a minimalist, simple and frugal life of travel as a gypsy, nomad, traveler or even a prepper by dropping out of the Rat Race and becoming a Vandweller or RVer! - -- - - - - - - -

When my wife and I moved to Montana last year, we found a comfortable home on several acres with a view of the mountains. There was only one hitch – the house was off the grid. In fact, everyone in the subdivision generated their own power, including the bed and breakfast nearby.
That doesn’t mean it was primitive. The house had solar panels, a wind turbine, a battery bank and inverter, a generator, and a full range of appliances including washer and dryer, refrigerator, stove, satellite TV, propane furnace, and even a dishwasher. Since I had operated a cogeneration power plant before coming to Montana, I wasn’t too concerned about generating my own electric power, so we bought the house.
Across the ages, in every survival story, a disaster of some sort plays a prominent role. Sometimes the part is played by the government, sometimes it is played by Mother Nature, and other times, the role is taken on by a random mishap. If we have learned one thing studying the history of disasters, it is this: those who are prepared have a better chance at survival than those who are not. A crisis rarely stops with a triggering event. The aftermath can spiral, having the capacity to cripple our normal ways of life. Because of this, it's important to have a well-rounded approach to our preparedness efforts. Due to the overwhelming nature of preparedness, we have created the Prepper's Blueprint to help get you and your family ready for life's unexpected emergencies. To make a more comprehensive, easy-to-follow program, The Prepper's Blueprint has been simplified and divided up in a way to help you make sense of all the preparedness concepts and supply lists provided. We have divided the chapters into layers of preparedness.
I am inspired by the very definition of self-reliance: to be reliant on one’s own capabilities, judgment, or resources. Ultimately, it is the epitome of independence and lays the groundwork of what we are all striving for – to live a life based on our personal principles and beliefs.

There are a lot of reasons to build your own Internet. In some places, you may have access to the Internet, but not particularly like your service provider or those monitoring and regulating your network. In other places, you may have no Internet (or telecom network) at all.
The solution is not to wait for someone to build the network that meets all your requirements, the answer is to build that network yourself!
An interesting Make Magazine article on what are called "Meshnets" appeared in November 2014. In it, they describe Hyperboria, a project which aspires to create a global mesh network.
A mesh network is basically a completely decentralized peer-to-peer version of the Internet. Local mesh networks are created where local users can communicate with one another and access information hosted locally by each user. A local mesh network, in turn, can be connected with another, then another and another until coverage is regional or even national. - See more at: http://www.techswarm.com/2015/01/why-you-should-build-your-own-internet.html#sthash.pmf2eKcW.dpuf
A variety of hardware is required to make this happen, but means that each user is a direct shareholder in the network itself and that the centralized assets of the current Internet and all of the problems associated with them are removed entirely. One such piece of hardware is a "mesh box" which allows for peer-to-peer connections. Another piece of hardware that will be needed to construct such networks is a long-distance router like the all-weather Nanostation M5. - See more at: http://www.techswarm.com/2015/01/why-you-should-build-your-own-internet.html#sthash.pmf2eKcW.dpuf
There are also P2P applications like Project Serval that connects your mobile device to others in their own broadcasting range -- no cell phone network required. This is the perfect solution for staying in touch with others traveling with you to remote areas where there is no network coverage. It is also useful for communicating with others in range if you desire to skip using coverage even when you have it.
At the end of the day, whatever your reason is for building your own Internet or using other P2P communication solutions, you will learn a lot, and you will have an alternative you can turn your attention to whenever the real Internet or your mobile network has got you down or goes down.
