Yeah...I reckon it is the best way. 98% of the people in the cities have no idea how to live off the land, how to get clean water, find food, live comfortably with minimal possessions. I won't need petrol (it is a nice to have, not a need to have) LPG (propane, butane) again is not necessary, and electric lights are not needed. The only problem area (initially) will be keeping things cold, but again, you don't need electricity for that. I remember when I was a kid, Mum and Dad had a kerosene powered refrigerator that kept things nice and cold...now I'm pretty sure it wouldn't take much to adapt wood to replace the kero. If keeping things cold becomes a problem, then we live day to day and make the most of what we have.
Hunter / gatherers lived for many centuries without these luxuries, and the human race evolved throughout that time until now. Many people have gone soft...I haven't.
