In the age of technology, the world is getting smaller, and some people go to extreme lengths and places to escape. For a rare breed, homesteads are still far too close for comfort. For them, independence means re-defining “off the grid.”
This new series follows a collection of unique individuals who are hiding out where no one else thinks to look – “above the grid” in the trees, “below the grid” in caves, “outside the grid” on a remote island, and “beyond the grid” on the mountaintops. They say that any true refuge comes at a price…but some people are willing to pay it. Welcome to the Boonies.
