Off Grid RV: Pros and Cons

Pros and Cons of Off Grid RV Living

Why are we calling it quits after 17 months in the woods?

Read on. It really comes down to sustainability. Our mental and physical sustainability.

Compare and Contrast

Pros

Through sheer will, I’ve been able to turn most of the things that challenged me, into transformative processes! And there have been good times.

  • I walked barefoot in the beach sand of the country road. (This grounded me and eased lonely feelings.)
  • I developed and committed to a daily Gratitude process, that I codified into Integrated Spiral.
  • I loved communing with the grandmother tree on the property and gaining resilience from her.
  • I enjoyed stargazing and looking at the moon on clear nights and dancing outside.
  • We enjoyed hanging out with My son, his girlfriend, and our neighbors.
  • I loved grilling food outside on my son’s Cuisinart propane grill
  • I perfected pan frying frozen salmon and tuna on a gas stove!
  • I loved the sounds of nature.
  • I loved watching the birds, bats, dragonflies, and butterflies.
  • I loved planting herbs and trees. And putting in a garden. My herbs and trees grew well.
  • I enjoyed sitting in a 3 foot deep pool on a hot day with a cold adult beverage in hand.

Cons

  • Generating enough power. I could write a book on generators now. I’m not kidding! And even though we live innthe sunshine state, we didn’t get enough sun on our solar panels to meet our needs.
  • We did use less. We turned off our RV refrigerator and bought a dorm size fridge. Used our microwave for only 30 seconds at a time, eventually quit using it after my son tried using it for 6 minutes (after we had installed a new inverter and new lithium batteries and knocked out our power—it was never quite right after that).
  • We did without our electric fireplace, which we always loved. It used too much power. My son put in a small propane buddy heater to resolve our heating needs in the winter, and that worked well.
  • We couldn’t run our built in RV vacuum. It used too much power.
  • We tried living the first few months without air conditioning. I couldn’t work (with sweat running from my armpits), and do all I was doing without AC. We had to run one dedicated generator (turning it on/off several times a day) to maintain a comfortable temp and humidity. My son had to direct wire it.
  • Speaking of my son, we had to rely on him for any handy work that had to be done. No RV tech, electrician or such would come to the country or come out during COVID.
  • Speaking of humidity, we had to deal with mold inside the RV. We removed all the cabinet doors and ran two or three small fans and two dehumidifiers to establish proper air flow and ventilation.
  • Bugs. The county doesn’t spray for mosquitoes, which is also good (reduces our toxic load), provides food for lizards, bats, etc. But we can’t step out our door without something biting us. And even while taking a shower outside in the bathhouse, we swat a few bugs away—and duck when a mama bird chose to build a nest in there!
  • Speaking of critters, we only saw one snake, but thought we heard sasquatch one night! Though that inspired a song!
  • Falling tree limbs. Yes, falling trees and branches have killed people! Enough said.
  • Our vegetable garden failed. First year it was too hot or we planted too late. Second year it rained too much.
Why are we calling it quits?

Irony

I didn’t want to pay $500 a month for RV park lot rent (that included $100 worth of electricity per month), because the park had raised its monthly rent $50 a month each year we’d lived there, and we had no amenities.

YET, after moving to the country (to my son’s property), we spent $25k+ on solar setup to live rent free Off Grid. AND after 17 months of that (mentally and physically challenging time), we are now (about to be) paying $1000 a month, plus electricity, for a 1 bedroom apartment! Hahahaha!!!

The only difference is that we’ve never lived in a 55+ community before! Hope we’ll like it!

Green Acres

Get back to Nature they said. It will be fun they said! Life showed me what a bitch it could be!

Given all the Pros detailed above, here’s the thing: Life is unsustainable. All good things must come to an end. Bodies eventually get old and tired. And though this unique (yet old and basic) lifestyle seems like it would be fun, exciting, and glamorous—it takes W-O-R-K. A whole lotta work!

And after living on grid all our lives, we’re lazy and spoiled. And that’s okay!

Learning from the trees

As Roger Miller famously sings, “You can’t roller skate in a buffalo herd.” And apparently, we can’t get enough sun on solar panels in the woods.

Yet, I continue to meditate upon what I’ve learned. This experience has bared me to my soul. I can stand strong in my power, determining with wisdom, what I can and cannot change.

Perhaps you noticed I had 11 Pros and 11 Cons to Off Grid RV living in my lists above. Choosing to stay or go really comes down to the deal breakers, and how much we are willing to put up with.

When an available apartment figuratively, fell into our laps, we felt it was the right move to make. After all, Everything in life is temporary, so why not rent?

Life is good, and God is good—ALL the time.

Naturally healed asthma

Naturally reversed asthma

The medical professionals will say you can’t heal asthma, but I did. And I wrote a book about it.

But I haven’t been very vocal about how I healed my body or put my story out there front and center with gusto.

Why?

Because I thought, “Who am I”?

I’m not a doctor, nurse, biologist, or scientist.

So, why should anyone listen to me?

And worse, what if someone attempted to follow in my footsteps and failed to heal their body?

But, nothing I wrote in my book, can hurt anyone. And I do propose that one puts together a health /medical team to aid and support them in their healing journey.

Naturally healed asthma

I follow the same “rule” as medical professionals. The Hippocratic Oath. First, Do No Harm.

I believe in personal responsibility.

I believe in our sovereign power to choose.

I believe in doing ones due diligence.

I believe in the body’s innate healing ability.

And until our body is in the dirt, I believe in HOPE. (And that there’s no such thing as “false hope.”)

Naturally healing asthma may take time, it took my six months to get off 5 prescription medications and detox, and awhile longer to incorporate deep breathing exercises into my daily life and feel (and mentally accept) that my lungs were healed.

The mental component in all of this cannot be emphasized enough because asthma sufferers have been steeped in the Biology of Belief that asthma cannot be reversed. Yes, read that book too, Biology of Belief by Bruce Lipton.

I am living proof that one can heal.

I have been off all allergy and asthma meds since 2005! And I breathe full and deep, clearly! No wheezing!

If any of this resonates with you, and you or a loved one is suffering with asthma, please message me. You can connect with me on Messenger, Instagram, email, or Twitter.

https://allmylinks.com/sheila-murrey

I cannot diagnose, treat, cure, etc. but I can share my experience with you and offer information that may be of benefit.

If I can’t offer someone information, what’s the point of my wellness, writing, and blogging. It’s paying it forward and back. It’s my legacy.

Many blessings to you in ALL ways.

Diets and Losing Weight

Dieting and Weight Loss

I’ve been using Primal Life Organics’ Hydrate daily for more than 4 months, and it (along with daily tracking of both my food/drink intake, and weight/steps), has helped me release over 30 pounds of excess weight!

Primal Life Organics Weight Loss. Naturally.

Yes, I track my food and drink intake, weight and steps walked daily, but I have continued to use Hydrate, even when I skip other supplements and believe it has contributed to my positive results!

As my readers know, I have been on the Omada weight management program for more than 6 months. I consistently log my food and water consumption, and the Omada app (connected to my iPhone Health app) tracks my steps. But, I believe the supplements I take, and variety of foods eaten, including rice, have helped me manage this journey and enabled me to stay consistent and release excess weight, naturally.

Hydrate is part of Primal Life Organics 3 part weight loss system that can be ordered separately: https://www.primallifeorganics.com/products/hydrate-naturally-supplement?_pos=1&_sid=4a012a6bb&_ss=r

You can order Primal Life Organics weight loss system here: https://www.primallifeorganics.com/products/weight-loss-naturally-supplement?_pos=1&_sid=d4e0c3155&_ss=r

I’ve carried excess weight on my body for over 20 years, and this is the first time I feel hopeful about my progress!

Why?

Because I feel I have all the components in place, from tracking apps, mind-body resilience programs (such as Integrated Spiral) that boost my mental stamina when I get bored or begin to move into a downward emotional spiral, etc.

I have gained hunger awareness and a good control over food cravings (yes, I still have some cravings, but I have really found a way to put them in their rightful place, and not in or ON my belly)! Haha!

I am actually having FUN challenging mySelf on this journey and allowing myself some flexibility, so it doesn’t feel so rigid! Denying myself certain foods always ended up getting me completely off track in years past. And I just don’t want to be so restrictive!

If I can be helpful or supportive to you, please reach out. I’ll encourage you, not nag—I promise.

Program Review: Integrated Spiral

Reviews of the Integrated Spiral Program

Background

I got my first real taste of depression in 2020. I fell in a deep dark “hole” (mentally) for a couple of months. I wasn’t mySelf. Thankfully, I climbed out, but it wasn’t always easy. And I was very grumpy.

I had put on 20 pounds. Twenty EXTRA pounds I didn’t need or want.

  • I felt helpless
  • I felt confused
  • I felt apathetic
  • I felt hopeless

Even though I knew I was loved (by my family), I didn’t feel lovable.

I felt abandoned by friends (though I chatted with some on Facebook).

I didn’t feel good physically.

And I felt very far away from my previous “vibrant life.”

I’d felt frustrated and had been in a state of overwhelm since moving to “off grid” life, then hit with the COVID lockdown. But, this downward spiral felt different. Emotionally, I felt shutdown. Yet, I knew I had the answers all around me. I needed to find a way to integrate what I already had INTO each day!

Once I found a way up and out, I wrote about it (because that’s what I do). I left mySelf breadcrumbs to pull mySelf up and out again, if I ever let mySelf fall into that mind cavern again. And from my writings, Integrated Spiral was born. ❤️🦋🌀🎼🙏☯️

Integrated Spiral. Because you can’t put woo-woo in a box. ❤️🦋🌀🎼🤣

I took the best “stick to it” processes (that I had learned but hadn’t implemented) and put them into a loose, wiggly, flow vs structure that at the end of 4 weeks allows anyone to figure out and design their own ritual… part breathwork, meditation, physical movement, and ALL gratitude! Yeah, baby!! ((It is what I’ve been doing for 5-6 months to beat depression, nighttime snacking, and lose 30 pounds.)) ❤️😉

Integrated Spiral Beta Testing

I knew my process worked for me. But would it work for others?

Review #1 – after the end of the first week. Sent to me from a long-time friend participating in the program not anticipating what it was about or how she might benefit. Here’s what she experienced:

“It actually really opened something up for me. And since I’ve been nose to grindstone and not open in a long time, this opening arrived pouring a lot in very quickly. Feeling great yesterday and today, excited for (next) Sunday!”

Review # 2 – my first lovely participant wrote:

“If you are sharing results, I’m letting you know that helped me so much and I realized I’m writing on the side that I wear my bracelets on, so I’m figuring that they may be putting out bad energy rather than receiving too much of it and truthfully I don’t receive well…”

Review # 3 – another dear friend participating in Integrated Spiral sent this message after the second week:

“I wasn’t feeling well before our session and I’m still not feeling great. I did too much last week. I have to be more discerning with my energy each day. 😚 p.s. We all enjoy when you speak!!!! Don’t think about “speaking too much”. 😂”

“You are a wealth of knowledge!!!!!!!! I appreciate all you share.”

More Off Grid RV: Living in Nature with Mold

As you may suspect, I am on a quest to be able to live in BALANCE with mold. I am not one to run from a fight, though after thoroughly studying fungus and mold toxins, both experientially in my body, and reading through tons of articles and comments of others experiences—most would RUN and throw all moldy items away!

There’s even a Low Mold Diet for those who are battling toxic mold exposure. And to be sure, if you are one of these unfortunate souls, it is no joke—mold toxicity is serious business!

Living in nature: Mold

Yet, after removing all our RV cabinet doors today, here we sit, feeling much freer of mind. In fact, though I know this is only the beginning, I am feeling a sense of victory!

Off Grid means more than living without a power pole

You see, when we moved our 5th wheel, (or fiver), to the northeastern part of Florida to live Off Grid, nearly a year ago, we knew we’d face challenges.

We didn’t think about the dampness here though. Even though ferns and moss grow here. Even though Spanish moss hangs from the trees. And the ground itself is squishy in spots, where vines and roots grow abundantly in the dark of the earth.

No, I must say that I bought it when people said, “Move to the country, it’ll be fun!” and “Get back to Nature.” Oh, yes, I said those things too. And then Life showed me what a bitch it could be!

How the hell did people live in Florida a hundred years ago?

Insert evil gregarious laugh here.

Some still live in Florida without climate control. Shocker, right?

I drive by many places, especially in the rural areas of Florida and Georgia, where I doubt folks have air conditioning. And many people think Florida is tropical and balmy with a near constant breeze. Not where we live.

We live inland, about an hour’s drive to the Atlantic ocean. And while we don’t get sunshine daily, we also don’t always get the rain that surrounding areas get. It’s been a bit strange.

Solar with trees all around

Speaking of low sunshine, we live in the Sunshine state, but we also live on wooded property. Probably not the best place to live Off Grid, but that wasn’t my idea. And now, all I can do is apply the Serenity Prayer.

Learning from the trees

As I meditate, I come away with lessons from this experience, and from walking among these trees. I can stand strong in my power, changing the things I can!

  • I don’t use chemicals for bug repellent
  • I enjoy watching bats and dragonflies eat mosquitoes
  • I wear natural fiber clothing (against my skin), that can be thoroughly cleaned, and I know the difference now, as only natural fibers mold
  • I wear jackets and coats (heavier things that are more costly), made of recycled synthetic materials
  • I don’t color my hair or wear makeup
  • I don’t need to shower daily
  • I enjoy what’s in my immediate surroundings: stars, moon, birds, and neighbors
  • I work to be more present for those I love
  • We truly are All Connected
  • Swaying brings Balance
  • Life always finds a way

Applying Qigong principles

Instead of chemicals, I look to Nature and lean into it for answers to the issues we face.

I learned a thing or two from growing up in The Chemical Valley of West Virginia (and if you want to know more about that place, watch the excellent movie by Mark Ruffalo called, Dark Waters).

I learned,

  • You can’t beat Mother Nature or Multi-national corporations like, DuPont.
  • The body is fabulously resilient with a bit of help
  • When your heart says, “Move”—Listen. And move. Thank God I moved from WV to FL when I was 22
  • Let nothing (No Thing) stop you

I learned Life is good, and God is good, ALL the time.

We all know that staying hydrated really helps to nourish the skin and help it stay young looking and glowing. So, today, I’ve got two tips for you to check out and see if these are something you may consider integrating into your self care routine.

Another gel supplement

In combination with fascia blasting, I smooth on a particular gel supplement onto my face and neck. It penetrates deep into the layers of skin to oxygenate and improve cell to cell communication.

The liquid version can be sprayed on skin too!

Non-toxic supplement can be sprayed in the eyes

Additionally, I have naturally improved my long distance vision by spraying the supplement (poured from the 32 ounce bottle, into their smaller spray bottle), into my eyes every morning and doing some eye exercises. I rarely wear my eyeglasses for distance anymore, except for driving.

We’re still consuming this supplement two years later and believe it keeps our immune system strong. We love living well and healthy!

Crystal love!

I love crystals!

I can’t believe I haven’t written an article about crystals, until now! I have been collecting articles about crystals for awhile, and have books also, such as:

Crystal Bible

Crystal Bible 2

Crystal Bible 3

Not that these are the only books about crystals that I have, but they are the best for me to have in paperback form, as a full-time RVer (which, means we live in an RV = little space). In fact, I only order ebooks now. I have more than enough paper books—more than I could read in the rest of my life!

From the ground

I’ve had a thought for years that my wealth is “in the ground.”

Ever since my hubby and I watched a show on TV about this place where ine can dif in the dirt for diamonds, rubies, and such, I have wanted to go to Crater of Diamonds state park in Arkansas.

Would you like to go dig in the dirt with me? Please comment and share your crystal digging experiences! 💎

Difference and Ego

I love crystals and what they have to teach us about Ego; each are imbued with different gifts from the earth, yet one is not superior than another. Each type of crystal offers different aspects of beauty, brilliance, and energy.

To quote a beautiful like-minded friend,

At a higher vibration than arrogance (which only masks low self esteem), true Humility opens one up into a compassionate community supporting healthy self esteem, valuing each equally, enjoying ALL as we are all a part of each other, coming from the same creator source in Love.

Beverly McCaw

Healing mind and body

As I wrote previously (here in the comments, and here), I’m integrating crystals (minerals) more and more into my daily life. In particular, I’m using crystals to help ease negative energy out of my body when I feel anxious watching certain emotional movies or shows.

And the last time I went to the dentist (oral surgeon) to have a broken root canal tooth removed), I held a rose quartz pocket crystal to help me through the experience—and it did)!

Pocket rose quartz heart crystal

Energy follows thoughts and intentions. Thus, I allow my excess emotional charge to drain into whatever crystal I am holding. I also partner with rounded and pointed crystals to work on my acupressure points at the same time! Win-win! ❤️🌀💎

Crystal shapes best for acupressure work

Crystal Mantra

I love looking at crystals because like people’s opinions, every crystal is multifaceted.

Whenever I feel rattled, I say to myself, “I am multifaceted. No one can see ALL of my facets at any one given time. Turn, turn, turn.”

My intention is that I hope my words bring you ease, joy, and peace. OM ❤️🦋🌀🙏

Month 1 Results from using Primal Life Organics’ Carrot Seed Facial Package

Results from use of the Carrot Seed Facial Package from Primal Life Organics

From my previous article where I introduced you to Primal Life Organics’ Carrot Seed Skincare Package, this is the follow up I promised:

WOW! A carrot seed oil face cleansing and moisturizing system that IS truly wonderful for any type of skin!

Ease of consistent use

I am NOT a “beauty routine” kind of gal, but this system was sooo easy to use and integrate into my morning routine! It was actually enjoyable!

Starting from the first day, I was eager to wash my face with the luxurious carrot seed oil cleanser. I looked forward to its bubbly creamy consistency every morning, so that prompted me to continue using it day after day!

Skin improved

My skin is aging and sensitive, so I was excited to experience the rejuvenating properties of this carrot seed oil skin care from Primal Life Organics.

I started noticing a difference in my face pretty quickly!

  • Skin texture improved
  • Skin stayed smooth
  • Skin stayed hydrated all day (no dry or flaky areas!)
  • Age spots began to fade, or become less noticeable

Before and After

I know it may be difficult to see the difference in my skin from these pictures, but I can see it and FEEL the difference!

Note: Disregard the redness beside my nose from my eyeglasses. And the lighting is different in these photos.
