    There better be some biting insects on that fantasy island. If my fantasies are to bear any fruit.

    For being 'off the grif' she does have a big selection of bras and a computer, and apparently electricity and internet. Right.

    How exactly does one charge one's phone "off the grid"?

    Oh good Lord.

    LOOK AT MEEEE. I'M OFF THE GRID!!!! HEY, YOU. LOOK AT ME ON INSTAGRAM AND YOUTUBE. I'M LIKE TOTALLY OFF THE GRID. LOOK AT MEEEEEE!!!

    Gawd, I wish she really was off the grid. Off the face of the earth would be preferable to be honest.

    My thought, too.

    I stay with Primitive Technology for my dose of people doing stuff in the jungle, thankyouverymuch. What you see there is at least informative and useful.

    Meh, she literally makes her living by generating views on YouTube. The article talks about her escaping the 9-5 but she's been a full time YouTuber for a while now.
    This is just another stunt to attempt a stay in relevancy and grow her channel/revenues.

    "A full time YouTuber".

    Sometimes I wish I was back in the nineties or early noughties where this sort of crazy stuff wasn't a thing.

    Eh? Off-grid doesn't mean no electricity. Generators or one of several renewal sources are all options. I'm not a big fan of hers (I think she's harmful for veganism, and her suggestions are neither healthy nor sustainable for most people) but some of these criticisms are silly.

    She does all this stupid, ridiculous garbage for publicity and clicks, which is what makes money for her. She's obviously succeeding at it.

    That said, I think the internet itself counts as a grid for these purposes. "Off-grid" means "separated from remote infrastructure," not just electricity.

    It feels a bit arbitrary to me, but most people only consider public utilities to be part of the grid, so private infrastructure (for example, cell towers your phone talks to) are not considered on-grid.

    Fact remains, definition of off grid notwithstanding, she's doing it for clicks and views. Creating another media storm. Same way she does celebrity shaming videos. Clickety click click.
