Woman who lives ‘off the grid’ threatened with expulsion from home she owns outright

Robin Speronis, a Florida woman who lives off the grid, is being threatened with losing her home due to her “alternative lifestyle”.

Last month, Robin’s story was featured on Fox 4 news in Florida. She does not have a refrigerator, oven, running water, or electricity.

She cooks on a propane camping stove, and her electronics run on solar-charged batteries.

Robin gets her water from rain barrels. She uses a colloidal-silver generator to disinfect the rain water

Unfortunately (but not surprisingly), after Robin was featured on the local news, authorities took notice: the day after the feature, Robin was slapped with a notice to vacate her property.

    “A code enforcement officer came, knocked on the door then posts a placard that says uninhabitable property, do not enter.”

The notice cites international property maintenance code and states the property is unsafe to be lived in. Robin said code enforcement has never been inside her home and would have no idea if her property is safe.

The city code compliance manager told Fox 4 that he tagged the home because it doesn’t have running water or electricity – but neither is mentioned as a requirement in the code cited by the city on the notice.

Robin said she owns her home free and clear and her taxes are up to date.

“Putting a woman who lives by herself, who is a widow, out on the street without any due process of law is unfathomable. Where is the justice? Why did they choose me…because I was exercising my First Amendment rights of free speech in discussing living off the grid.” 

Humans lived for thousands of years without modern conveniences like running water and electricity, and Amish families continue to thrive without either.

    They don’t want it catching on that’s why. If every one started doing it the elites would loose money and the governments would loose control. They can’t have us escaping the net
