I have a beautiful property in the Sierra Foothills that I could share with a like minded couple. Off grid, wildlife preserve, private and secure. Must have building talent and able to sustain yourself financially.

I own two ten acre parcels side by side and it is beautiful, quiet and secluded country approximately 30 miles from Durango, Colorado. I am keeping one parcel and am willing to part with one of them. They both have views of the La Plata mountains, the most southern portion of the San Juans. It is primarily old pinon pine and juniper woodlands. It is forested with nice openings throughout. There is a spring for water hauling about 9 miles away that you can become a member of for 100 dollars a year, they give you a key. There is amazing potential for water catchment here and land catchment with swales etc. These parcels border 6000 acres of bureau of reclamation land. There are vast areas to explore not to mention a nice town not too far away. The La Plata mountains are approximately 15-20 miles to the north with many 12,000-13,000 foot peaks. I have had great success with gravity fed drip irrigation here. I included a few pics but have more if needed. One of the 10 acre parcels has a 10 x 10 shed included. I am letting one parcel go for 32K obo. email questions. firstname.lastname@example.org

After 20 years without electricity, I have off-grid solar electric power system up and running for a year-and- a–half.
Want to add to my solar array, see great prices on PV panels in pallet lots. Need two more panels, approx 300W @ 24V. Would like to buy together with others not too far away(West Vrgfinia USA) to get better price.
Also have eight 1650 A-H 2v lead acid cells new dry-charged never filled but twelve years old to sell or trade, unless you have four more to sell me.
Happy to chat about solar power systems, off grid ultimate frugality, even politics an survival.

I have just finished university and I am currently working to try and pay off some debts. I figured if I can get my accommodation as cheap as possible this would help me get out of debt quicker. I would like to experiment with living in a tent and also with sustainable living. I learn by doing, and this would be a great opportunity to learn about low-impact living.
I am looking for an area in West-Mids/Worcester which has a close-by water supply and reasonably good access. You will find that I am a very respectful and easy going person and will look after any land that is rented.
