Regina Caligiuri
Owner and Creator of Maximum Off Grid

Hi, I am Regina, the creator of Maximimum Off Grid.

I am an active prepper, survivalist, gardener, and aspiring off gridder.

As I researched off grid systems, I noticed that I had a hard time finding the information I needed. I had to gather bits and pieces from across the net just to learn what I needed.

I realized that I wanted to start a website where I could share a well-organized database of cohesive information about setting up off grid systems.

Hence, Maximum Off Grid was born!

The website has now evolved to cover a range of topics from growing your own food to survival skills.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments.
