    From Washington State

    Oh wow, we have been to Washington many times. It's a beautiful and a very green state! My kids love the Great Wolf Lodge near Olympia. Welcome to the forum! We will be glad if you can share your experience with us on this forum. Or let us know if you have any questions! Where in Washington are you located? We are very often in that area and would like to maybe check out your off-grid project one day!

    Update for the project

    Hello OffGrid Thinker, Yes, you are right. Recently we didn't have much activity on the board and there have been no new blogs posted. However, the activity on the forum is up to the readers. We are here to answer their questions. Once we will post progress on the project, I think it will ignite more interest and more questions. I am sorry it took me a few days to answer your question, but I was traveling abroad. No worries, let me assure you, the project is happening. I will tell the owner to take the time and write some more blogs. He was busy overseeing the activity on the property. Old structures had to be removed, the roads are being developed and the perimeter fences are being improved. Thank you so much for your question.

    Conection to the grid?

    No, we do not offer a connection to the grid. The purpose of the Resilient Plan B is to be off-grid and sustainable. We do not want to depend on anybody for electricity or water...

    Natural disasters in Chile

    Hello Don, these are very valid concerns! I am glad to say that when the location of the property was picked, all those aspects have been calculated. The beach is only a 25 min drive but over some hills. The lowest point of the property is at the 100 meters above sea level, so tsunami triggered flooding is not a concern and volcanos are way over 100 kilometers away.
  8. Hello Beth, Welcome to the forum. This topic is for introductions only. Please find the right topic for this kind of conversation. Also, I was wondering, are you looking to partner with us or are you trying to advertise to our readers? Looking forward to your answer.

    Tiny homes on wheels

    Hello MrFoster, In the States, there are quite a lot of nice tiny homes on wheels available for sale, and recently they became so popular. Here in Chile, I have not seen them at all. A tiny home on wheels would be acceptable for a temporary solution while construction is going on, but we would not allow tiny homes on wheels permanently on the property. Coming here and building a tiny home on wheels doesn't seem like a good solution when it will only be temporary. Tiny homes are not that cheap to build, even if you do it yourself. It makes more sense to build a permanent home, even if it is only a small one.
  10. If you want you can get dirty and press some wine with your feet.
  11. Besides wine tasting, there are also many food, crafts and souvenirs stands.
  12. This Wine festival called "Fiesta de la Vendimia Colchagua" is the biggest event in Santa Cruz. Many wine lovers meet at the Santa Cruz Plaza de Armas and enjoy tasting wine from 14 wineries, that make up the Colchagua Valley. Santa Cruz gets packed with tens of throusands of people durig that celebration weekend.
  13. One of the many interesting things that I learned was that Vina Santa Cruz is the first and for now the only vineyard of this size to be off-grid. They use solar power for energy. They recycle glass and reuse the waste from wine production.
  14. Recently I have been at the Vina Santa Cruz again and participated in one of their tours. A few pictures from my personal collection.
