      Firewood warms you 3 times. Free even more so.

            Only if it is pine or some other soft wood. Hard wood can take up to 2 years to season.

              Excuse my ignorance . All I have around here are mesquite bushes. I dream of trees, though.

                  Neighbour up the road lives off the grid. Uses wood for heating and cooking. He has roughly 25 cords of wood stacked and dried. That is barely enough for next year.

                    I'm talking native vegetation out in the wild.Outside city limits. I have 2 huge pecan trees in my front yard. 2 huge oaks in my patio area with assorted ash trees scattered about. Chainsaw indeed.

                      Totally off the grid? Damn that's some simple living

                          Tell them to invest in some solar panels. I'd also suggest a windmill turbine but I imagine that gets pretty expensive.

                          I'd love to live off the grid but that is a lot of work and learning I'd have to do in order to survive.

                            There are companies up here that will pay you to put panels on your roof and give you a check for selling back to the hydro companies. Impossible to do if you are off the grid.
