I am thinking about taking on help to build a nice place to live. No longer working myself to death and I am getting to slow to finish everything I wish to get done here at Dirtwater. Living off my assets till benefits come and its use them or lose them. The climate here is good for off grid, it never stays below freezing long and summers are only above 100*F for a couple months per year. The wooded land I call Dirtwater is a thousand feet off of a back road and has some utilities. The hope is to build a simi-offgrid situation and become as self reliant as possible. I do like some comforts and toys, I don’t plan to become like a mountain man. Purists may be welcome but judgments will not be. Its all about working together to build something good, safe and comfortable with as little of the rat race as possible. If all goes well, the plan is to build a small stationary sawmill, blacksmith/fab shop and tiny portable homes. As a disabled veteran, I would seriously consider veterans. Young or old, vet or not, male or female, it doesn’t matter. I will respond and if we click, maybe I will bring you in. No free rides here, guests here will have to help me hold down the fort. If your a city dweller and want to live nearer the dirt, this may be the spot for you. Its in the sticks but not far from cities in a fairly well populated rural area. Very good school system here if that matters.
