Default isolated areas or off the grid

Are there any hidden communities that most people dont know about or just very isolated areas where people may live.


As I mentioned in another post there is a spot south of Albuquerque out in the desert where many illegals have set up their own community, they have no water or elec.


here is another area where people come to live in Northern NM by Taos that is also off of the land
OFF THE GRID: Life On The Mesa Trailer

then there is a Earthship community near Taos.

what other areas are their in your states that you know of?

Some religious radicals created a camp near a town called Pringle about 50 miles south of Rapid City where I live. They were affiliated with the ones in Texas too.

I guess most rural towns in Wyoming are pretty "off the grid" and you know everyone in a 50 mile radius.

Cut and Shoot, Texas

Most people in Texas have heard of it, but most don't think it really exist.

90% of Alaska land is off the grid, and almost 300 Alaska villages. The only grid we have is along the road system. Heck, Cordova, Bethel, Nome, Kotzebue, Barrow. All of them are off the grid. They aren't connected to the road system at all, and have independent power plants of their own.

Angle Inlet, MN. No way to get there by land without leaving the country.

I don't know specific communities, but I would have to guess that northern Nevada and eastern Oregon (and of course, Alaska) have plenty of places where off-the-grid folks could find a homestead.
