    I have a 160 acre off-grid homestead on the Ca/Nv border near Oregon, remote, secluded, at end of unimproved road, surrounded by public lands (BLM).  I’m looking to sell the north 80 acre parcel to one or 2 folks who want to live in a similar simple off-grid style.  I’ve been here 12 years in a small cabin, hand-dug well, year-round, wood heat, solar & wind power.  I’m asking $25,000 for the 80 acres, terms available, prefer someone who has the skills to set up their own homestead and be a good neighbor.  The property has water rights and a 4 acre reservoir on an intermittent creek.  I’ve been supplementing with rain gutter catchment plus hauling some water from town during the current unprecedented drought. There’s a good aquifer underlying the property, if one has the financial means to drill a well.  Anyone interested in finding out more can email me at:
