How we gather information from users
How we collect and store information depends on the page you are visiting, the activities
in which you elect to participate and the services provided. For example, you may be asked to provide information when you register for access to certain portions of our site or

You may provide information when you participate in sweepstakes and contests, message boards and chat rooms, and other interactive areas of our site. Like most Web sites, offgridok.com also collects information automatically and through the use of electronic tools that may be transparent to our visitors. For example, we may log the name of your Internet Service Provider or use cookie technology to recognize you and hold information from your visit.

As we adopt additional technology, we may also gather information through other means. In certain cases, you can choose not to provide us with information, for example by setting your browser to refuse to accept cookies, but if you do you may be unable to access certain portions of the site or may be asked to re-enter your user name and password, and we may not be able to customize the site’s features according to your preferences.

  1. Real nice meeting you today and I love your website/blog! I have a lot of folks that buy rural property from me to get away and live just as you are doing now. Look forward to keeping in touch. I noticed that you mentioned one of the higher expenses being a water well; This is exactly why I just invested in a portable drilling rig. I should have it up and running in a few months – this will make a lot rural properties I have much more valuable! If anyone you know needs a well in the area – feel free to pass on my name and #. Anyway, sure could use some help finding bass or catfish on Lake Eufaula – if you need some help running your boat, be glad to assist ya! 918/466-3597 -Scott

  2. Hi Scott and welcome,
    Thanks for checking us out, and thank you for the kudos. I work hard at it. I would appreciate it if you would direct interested folks to us. I’ll do everything I can to answer their questions and help them figure out how to do the things they want to do. I have found some great resources in my years of living off grid and am happy to share. It took years to locate some of the resources I use and a lot of expensive trial and error to eliminate the ones that do not work. I can probably save them a few headaches and a few dollars, too. P.M. to follow.
