Ask a off gridder


10 per visit - Virtual OK - Posted Nov 04, 2017

As someone who has lived for sometime off grid. I'm working on providing information to as many people as possible. Simbi will be a great way to find the questions people really have about off grid. We don't judge, some people are worried about the end of current civilization/technology, others just love the freedom. Information can be shared for very little and help to guide all of us. I'm putting together resources to help people, as it's often hard to find the information, particularly since there is so much bad information out there.

I plan on adding things to our website, and mostly using Simbi to help clarify answers. I also accept that I don't always know everything, however I love to research and enjoy new challenges and situations. I really love to encourage people and try to help them to find that path that works best for them.

Training & Qualifications

I have been living off grid, on and off for the past 13 years. Currently we are building a new Shabin on our own property and hope to move in next spring. I'm interested in a great many disciplines and have been doing a lot of research on everything from power, to water, to sewage, building materials, and even growing our own food. I get a lot of help and support from my terrific wife.

As a former Microwave Engineer, I apply a lot of experience and education to dealing with offgrid power and communication issues. Additionally, I do small engine repair and RV repair, so I have a lot of experience with working with self contained systems.

Availability & Preferences

Usually evening and weekend. Winter I tend to be more available

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

About Andy Anderson

Pretty easy going. Love being active and spending time on our property. Love my wife, children, and grandchildren. I love to build people up! Enjoy listening to music, making videos, photography..., Riding ATV's-motorcycles-mudding, nature hikes, and exploring Montana. I really like organic gardening and am super into off grid living, which we are building our first completely off grid house in Augusta. Not really big into TV or Movies, but I do like making my own! I'm a professional drone (sUAS) pilot, with a commercial rating, and run my own business. I also am a Manager at Walmart, and have done remodel work with the corporation. I really love to share my knowledge with people, and plan on doing several Ask services here on Simbi. I also enjoy working on my wordpress page and helping people out. show more
