Full of information about living without a permanent residence, this collection contains helpful and informative tips for biking, tents, showering, and cooking. These zines from 1980 to 1989 show how to live the lifestyle far outside of cities and bereft of technology.


"From an overly simplistic view, this book is mostly a guide to living off the grid. If you expand from there, you see that the tips being given in this book can be used from anyone from the hardcore survivalist to the urban apartment dweller looking to live a little more cheaply and simply."  —Maximum Rock N Roll
