Vince Edwards is an off-gridder who’s creating a model for a network of self-sustaining communities. He’s got 20 acres in Colorado and has written a book about it called, I’m Leaving Civilization: Wanna Come with Me? 110 pages, Kindle ebook for $9.99 at Amazon.com. Not surprisingly he’s come under attack by local authorities for his outspoken opinion on excessive building codes and regulations. He’s currently running for local sheriff to turn this situation around.
Book summary by the author: “It’s been said by many that, “you can’t handle the truth” and I’m not just discussing Hollywood actors. Can you handle the truth? Is the truth hiding amongst the following pages? This is either the beginning for you in your study of “rights gone by” or this book is what you’ve been looking for that could point you in the direction of the “end of the rainbow.”
This book is a work in progress, as evidenced by the “First Edition” subtitle. I’m working the knowledge, strategies and theories into my life to test them, as I go along to potentially edit small portions of this book.
The thousands of conversations I’ve had with people, attempting to explain exactly how things work and sometimes succeeding, led me to a word processor to see if I could explain things better to myself, and by extension: You.
I hope you get a lot out of this book, and it is the catalyst that changes many lives for the better. I welcome all feedback both for and against, critical or not. You’ll find my contact information somewhere in the footnotes.”

I hear he has more information on Facebook and Twitter. Vince’s experience is part of a larger story of corruption in Costilla County, Colorado that we covered in 2016: Colorado Off-Gridders Forced back on the Grid, Camping on own land Illegal. Roughly 200 off-gridders were forced off their land under controversial conditions. This is a big story because Vince Edwards has obtained documents that indicate fraud and abuse took place to drive these people off their land.
