Decision made, Time to move on

Hello,

My name`s Mitch. I am 21 I was born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago, but its time to move on. School isn’t right for me now and I’ve always had a passion for the outdoors. I’m ready and want to prove to myself. I’m strong enough to escape from this easy lifestyle and challenge myself. I`m looking for somewhere to live and someone who can teach me how to become a survivalist. I’m very athletic and have been playing sports my while life, sports are one of my passions. I also love problem solving, and have an iq to match that. I know that I’ll be a great addition to any community for a long time and will be able to prove my worth over any lacking survivalist skill. Sweating in the mid day heat over hard manual labor is the stuff I love gritting teeth and all. It’s time to move on, I’m ready for the challenge.

Need some help and somewhere to go.

I’m only 15 but i’m a survivalist and I wish to live off the grid by any means necessary. I can hunt, fish, forage, I am an artist and I have many talents in many different fields. I’m a hard worker and will do about anything. I need somewhere to stay, somewhere to call home, but I have no where. So please, could someone help me out here?

Hi

I’m a 40 year old female and I’m greatly considering to live off grid preferably around Asheville area for I find it beautiful and I’m part Cherokee, but I am open to other areas. I’m seeking either a community to join with or to neighbor by with like minded people. I’d like to own my own land to build and live on. I want a wooded area with hills or mountains and a patch of sun to grow an organic garden and land without building restrictions… at least free to build a cabin or straw house etc.
I am seeking to do this rather immediately or during spring time.
I’m looking for people who are free spirits, no drama makers, peaceful happy people, and preferably in the healing field ( like reiki etc) for I am. And gay friendly people. And I will make it note worthy that I am absolutely intolerable to men and women invading my space. ” NO means NO”. And I prefer people who are not hunters.
So if anyone is interested or knows of an ideal area to give me leads on please contact me and lets discuss! Also if anyone can lead me to a website with cheap land in the area. thanks! sprite333@live.com

looking at going off-grid in British Columbia
by CHRIS CANNON on JULY 2, 2014 - 1 Comment in I WANT TO GO OFF GRID

Vancouver writer looking to learn everything i can about off-grid living for some magazine and tv work i am doing, but also out of curiosity and a desire to be part of a sustainable community. I prefer the witty, kind, and sane over the dull, angry, and loopy. Please move on if you respect the Kardashians or make your dog wear goggles.

At this point, i am just trying to scout out the local, off-grid community and see what i can learn. Possible move in the future — interior, the sunshine coast, or on one of the islands perhaps.

I’m a college prof, a rock critic, an author, a former US Marine Sergeant, and a friend to animals. My wife is a baker and a model. Our cat does not have a job.

Looking to transition soon!

I’ve been educating myself on Earthbag and SuperAdobe construction methods. With these hand-made buildings, a cheap parcel of remote land and the help of a handful of like-minded people, a new village may take root. I’m ready to begin the transition over the next year(2011). I have put together a plan to make the transition but it relies heavily on other people who wish to do the same. By pooling manpower, a little money and time, I want to create a satellite village which helps others into this lifestyle. By taking part in the village, people will learn DIY home building, permaculture gardening, and various other off-grid skills and information. Think of it as an introduction where people could spend days, months, weeks or even years learning these ways before setting out on their own. It’s not about money and it should never come to that. Sure it will still be useful in some circumstances but the idea is to be free of such pursuits, stop trading our time, our labor and our lives for money and start living what life we have left to enjoy.
The transition will not be easy and is expected to take place over several years with the first stage being the development of the land with little more than camping accommodations. As Earthbag structures and various support systems like septic begin to take form, the village will become more of a weekend retreat, trading lodging, information and hospitality for labor. When someone truly puts their heart into something; their resourcefulness knows no bounds. And that is the strength behind a project like this. Everyone who becomes involved will have done so because their heart told them it was the right thing to do.

Advice on how to get started?
by TOPAZETA on JULY 2, 2014 - 2 Comments in I WANT TO GO OFF GRID

I’m 27 years old and live in London. I moved here 10 years ago from a small coastal town in South Africa to save enough money to buy land in either the UK or South America and start a small community – since my early teens this was always the plan. I’ve read tons of books on self sufficient living, grow my own food and have over the years found ways to live only on the basics but I’m not sure where to go from here.

So why off grid? I’m a sensitive person and value love and sharing above all else but have for a while tried to fake apathy and buy into all the crap that has only made me ill. Like Krishamurti said ‘we have to be sick to be well-adjusted’ but I can no longer make this compromise and hope to meet others who feel the same way. I’d like to remove myself completely, live as simply as possible and one day start a small animal sanctuary on the land. I am an animal activist and vegan but like humans too ;)

Thanks for reading,
Lissy

Looking to help with an off the grid community
by TINA on JULY 2, 2014 - 0 Comments in I WANT TO GO OFF GRID

I am originally from a small town in upstate NY and am currently living in New York City and going to school for Interior Architecture. I have a fascination with building spaces and atmospheres and am a very creative and artistic person. I’ve recently realized that I can no longer be apart of this capitalistic society and am looking for something greater than myself. I applied to The Earthship Academy but I was denied because I am not yet 21. I do not think I can stay in school anymore to wait around until I am 21 – it is beginning to drain me. This could be due to all the theoretical projects and lack of meaning and hands on experience. It is all very money based and I am far from that. I am a very hard worker and am willing to do what ever it takes to be able to live a self-sustainable life. Sense of community is important to me and I am looking for one where we can all work together to achieve something amazing. I do not know much about sustainable building, or growing (although I have worked on an organic farm once) – but I am really ready to learn! So if anyone needs an extra hand and is willing to work with an open minded, and creative person – I can help you out!

:)
P.S. that’s me on the left – I know visuals help people out sometimes!
