Hello all, I’m trying to get away from the evil chase bank and this is taking longer than I had planned. I am a multi professional multi instrumentalist songwriter with plans to move my entire analog home recording studio into a fiver toy box. I own a great 2005 F2 with a 6.0 diesel and it’s paid off. I was planning to head out to Quartzsite in Jan 2014 but I may be late. I am experiencing anxiety over making the jump and just got my copy of “Off the Grid.”

We’re a couple in our mid-twenties that are looking to move out of the United States to Vilcabamba, Ecuador (or a surrounding area). We are respectful, eco-friendly, and open-minded about purchasing land with other people as a group effort. It’s a very beautiful place, great weather all year round, with a lot of culture and love there.
We thought, why are we trying to do this all on our own? There has to be another couple, or group of people, who would like to own land together that has desire and passion, but perhaps cannot afford to put a lot down all at once. Why can’t we have a beautiful property, with running water, where we can all build our lives?
This is what we’re thinking. If every person who would like to purchase land had a minimum of $5000 per person, we can make this happen. In 2014-2015, we would like to purchase something.
I’m Alicia Baldwin and my long-term love is Kaleb Capes. Our ideal while living life on this Earth is to live in a place where we can be more free and live off the land without strong government interference. Our heart’s desire is to plan to have a child within the next 5 years and raise this being in a place with loving people, an abundance of healthy food, and be eco-friendly. We want to live our lives to the fullest! We would like to take this as a group effort with other people who are committed to making this change with us. We can decide together whether we will divide the land into multiple sections legally (we think it’s a good idea) or if we will share it all.
Requirements for us:
Be able to contribute a minimum of $5k per person (children are people, too, and will grow up and likely stay on the land).
Be respectful of others and their belongings.
Be willing to help someone out (maybe with a house project, etc.)
Is eco-friendly and clean. No trash left on this beautiful property!
Be animal friendly. We are serious dog lovers!
Be compassionate and loving toward all people and animals.
No criminals. You must pass a background check!
No bums. Have a job with reliable income so that we know you can help purchase the land.
Be willing to deposit monthly into an account toward your part of the land purchase so that we know that by the time we reach 2015, we will have the funds to make this dream into a reality. Money will NOT be refunded. This is a serious commitment and we are all going to count on one another to stick with the agreement.
We’re open to hearing what others have to say and contribute!
We’ve started a local Meetup group in Bexar County/San Antonio in order to have a social venue to meet others who are interested in intentional community. So if you’re in the area, please signup and participate. You can find us here: http://www.meetup.com/Land-Buddies/
I’ve been working with others who share a similar vision. I’m interested in building a self-sufficient, permaculture based community. The goal would be to grow our own food, raise livestock, and create income generating businesses that support us. Ultimately, this would be a transition to a system that supports and works for us instead of us working for it.
Now for the reality… acquiring land takes money. While there are many that would like to join, I’m still looking for others who have the financial ability to join in purchasing land. So if you are a serious buyer who’s interested in such an arrangement, please contact me. I have identified suitable properties, but there aren’t enough buyers. If I can find up to six others who can handle $150,000+ financing, we can definitely acquire a good location.
You can reach me at landbuddy at excg . biz .
I, along with a few others, will soon be starting an off-grid community that utilizes solar energy, organic crop farming, and other self sufficient practices to sustain the community as a whole. Cooperation will be one of the many positive attributes, as well as part of a moral code, on which the community will be based and founded upon. To find out more please send your inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that this off-grid community will be established in Canada, Ontario. To those living outside of Canada: Please check with immigration Canada to see what you will need if you choose to cross the border into Canada and what you will need to do and/or have in order to reside within Canada for a long duration or to seek permanent residence.

We are a family of 6. Gave up our house and sold everything to live in our 5th wheel. We homeschool the kiddos and have been traveling with my husband from job to job while saving to fulfill our dreams of living a truly free life. We both grew up on farms and have taught our children the humble way of living. We are looking for other families or communities who are for the same. We both hunt, fish, garden, can our fruits and veggies, and try our best to be active with our kids in teaching them about self sustaining hands on. Our plan is purchase land here or around Colorado springs. We love it since day one of being here, it’s absolutely beautiful and we are able to grow our own herbal meds. There is lot of game everywhere, and the springs are overflowing. We love all kinds of animals so plan .kn having pets along with animals we raise for organic meat/eggs. A garden year around. Water source on property pared with solar energy. We will live in our rv until we build a house and just adding on as we go. We love building what we need out of what we have. We truly enjoy being all together and my husband leaving every day all day to work so I can stay at home with our kids just does not work for us. I have a medical background and worked up until 2years ago when I was placed on bed rest from my last pregnancy. My husband is currently doing directional drilling but has done it all. Hanging iron, welding, has cdl, structural building, and any handy man work you can think of . We are really hoping to find a community but if not we will continue to work and save for all the necessary necessities. We are trustworthy and hardworking ready and able asap.

I am a 35 years old computer engineer from Italy. I moved to Munich 2 years ago with my wife for work. We are now having a baby and looking to set roots.
In doing this, I would like to plan a possible off-grid future, as I don’t trust the current economic system and would like to be as much as possible independent from it.
Being a foreigner I have some problems in getting the right social network to start initiatives and build a community to go off-grid.
I hope this listing helps me in that.
Back in Italy we already did some research for building a wooden house and noticed that having someone else to share the project with would have helped in reducing the costs (terrain, consultancy, paperwork, etc.) so I hope to get in touch with someone to put the forces together. Also because if we are to make it in Germany, as we would like since economy and society in Italy is bad and will remain in the near future, language can complicate things. We speak German, but understanding legislation and paperwork is hard even in your motherlanguage.
If you live in the Munich area and are interested contact me at m.sernesi tiscali.it
I will be leaving Sweden sometime before this winter, I hope.. Getting rid of my apartment and buying a motorhome. Gonna put solar panels on the roof etc so I can really be mobile.
I´m heading down to southern regions (Spain/Portugal) and hope I can make some friends along the way. The journey will be a big adventure with the goal to become more independent, live of less and eventually find a piece of land, by myself or with others. Never done anything like this before, but you gotta try right?
I´m a 31 year old guy who likes to learn new things. Quite handy and a fast learner too. Not afraid to work hard for something I believe in. I like to be out in the nature, making campfires, building shelters and feel more connected to the Earth. One of my personal idols, Cody Lundin from Dual Survival, whom has lived an aboriginal lifestyle half his life, doing it barefoot, is a huge drive for me. I also play the guitar since many years and other intruments as well. Music is an important part of my life. I´m interested in everything that Off Grid-living has to offer and I hope to find others alike :)
