By the way, if anyone is interested, I created some earthing shoes out of an old pair I had lying around, some copper wire, and some foil duct tape. If you are at all interested in getting grounded for zero dollars (price is right) while out in the big wide world, check out my DIY Earthing Shoes Tutorial (how I made my earthing shoes) That post I made about the earthing shoes is actually on a new earthing forum I created. At this time, I make absolutely no money from it (maybe one day I'll have a little income just to keep it running as I assume there are costs associated with running a bustling forum... hosting, moderation, etc.)... ...the whole purpose, though, is to bring the conversation about earthing some focus in one place. Personally, I had some issues when I first started to ground myself and I wanted to find a place where I could connect with others and discuss my issues in an open forum and also see what others were experiencing. The issue was, I was using the electrical ground in my house. But I found some peace when I chucked my own ground rod into the earth under a cedar tree behind my house. I wrote a whole post about it on the forum. I explained how I tested my domestic grounding rod and found 244mV on it! Not safe! I explain how I found a safe ground to connect to, etc... Originally, I was looking for an earthing forum and that's how i found this exact thread on this very forum! But there was no "Earthing Forum" where people were discussing earthing under one roof. So I decided to make one on my own. I've never made a forum before so this is all very new. It would be AWESOME to have anyone interested in earthing or interested in learning about earthing and continuing the discussion, to come and join this budding community: http://earthingforum.com/ It's exciting because at the moment, there are just 6 members and it used to be just me a few days ago! And this is all without getting any google rankings for the search term: "earthing forum". Imagine when the forum starts getting traction in the search engines! It will be a busy community! So, it would be lovely to see you there at the earthing forum as one of only a few original members ...for the moment! Earthing, I think, is going to be a growing movement! Join me (there you can see a picture of me giving the THUMBS UP!) Stay Grounded Everybody!
