Living Off the Grid in Paradise



Warrick Mitchell lives deep in one of the world’s most remote locations: Fiordland, New Zealand. His home in the country’s oldest national park is nestled in a vast wildness accessible only by boat or airplane, a four day’s walk from the nearest road. Life in isolation can be hard, but surrounded by breathtaking, pristine natural beauty, plentiful wildlife and a small but tight-knit community that is always willing to lend a hand, Mitchell would have it no other way.

    My first thought here was; “OK, just fine until you get appendicitis or toothache”, but then I realized that Off Grid does not necessarily mean isolated or cheap. This community seems well-connected to civilization by airplane, which makes a whole lot of sense although it must be expensive. No one wants to suffer or to die of something curable because it takes days to get medical assistance. Nothing wrong with that. It was just that, for some strange reason, I was thinking that Off Grid means primitive, which it does not.
