Homesteaders wanting to live in a community in Colorado have been forced to leave the land they purchased…
More than 20 years ago, while they still lived in the city and accumulated the possessions that go along with it, they decided to unclutter their life and live a simple life.
This county in Colorado is at odds with over 800 people who want to live off grid. They want to Homestead in the flatlands where there are wide open spaces.
In Colorado the local government was forcing people who wanted to live off grid, off their land, or into obtaining permits to live that were very difficult to come by. Now the government has reversed their opinions, for awhile, and allowed off-gridders the freedom to live off grid.
A place in Colorado has become a magnet for people who want to live off grid and to live a more self-reliant lifestyle, but now officials are attempting to ban people from camping on their own land.
