My name is James. Soon I will be getting ready to move off the grid into my 6 acre plot of land and I want to meet people who will join me in this endeavor (male or female)
About me; I am an easygoing 39yo single guy who currently lives(rents)in Miami FL in a house with a room-mate and 2 dogs. I live a simple life,love animals, gardening, and outdoor activities. I have always wanted to live in the country to further simplify my life, to have tranquility and live sustainably by growing my own food and raising farm animals. Having grown tired of the current way of life and the rat race we live in, I decided to make it my goal to fulfill my dream of living sustainably/off the grid/possum living (whatever one should call it)and finally make the change.
About the property; The land is paid in full, I chose this area because it’s in the outskirts of a small town called Erin TN. It has 350 ft of county paved road with utilities available. There is a 30ftX30ft building with basement on site which needs some work but can be converted into a house. The weather there is mild with plenty of natural resources such as fertile soil, lots of trees/lumber, rain for harvesting water, plenty of game/wildlife, wild berries. The terrain is beautiful with rolling hills and elevation of 480 ft. The property is 30 minutes driving distance to the Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Park which has great fishing, camping, boating, horseback riding, canoeing, etc.
About the people I’m looking to meet; I want to meet people who share my views and ideas and are willing to make this change along with me. We do not have to move to the property at the same time and I am flexible on the moving dates. I am realistic and understand that doing this on my own would be much slower and more difficult. I don’t care what you look like, your ethnic background, sex, race, color, sexual orientation, religion, or any of that stuff. The only thing i do care about is that you are a caring, honest, hard working individual who is easygoing and respectful of others.
If you are interested in going on this journey with me and are serious about it please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a great day!
