Off the grid in Texas

solar ovenJohn Wells has an interesting website where he blogs about being off the grid completely somewhere in Texas.

He has a good sense of humor and I have enjoyed hearing his take on how off the grid living is working for him.

I would like to someday build a solar oven like the one he finished last year in this picture. It would be nice on really hot days not to add any more heat to the trailer and save a bit of electricity at the same time.
