Family Trades Urban Jersey Living For An Offgrid Paradise In Hawaii

In today’s hyper-connected world it’s can be hard to imagine life without a smart phone, a tv, wireless internet, or bluetooth. In reality, most of those things didn’t exist a little over a decade ago, and yet people somehow survived. Today we share a great story of a family who built an offgrid cabin to escape, unwind, and reconnect – with each other, and their surroundings. Jason and Stacy made a big decision to move from their New Jersey home to Hawaii, a decision that initially sounds like a wacky idea to their urban-dwelling children. Of course, breaking the news to your kids that you’re taking them to a place devoid of Sony Playstation and other gadgets might be difficult at first, but once they get a breath of fresh air as they breeze down the zipline, or feel the adrenaline of riding their bmx bike around the track you built, those worries vanish.
