[before_listing images= youtube=null] No joke, no scam, just us helping each other..

I have many acres of land throughout TX, TN, CO, & AK. I am looking to give away a couple of acres on each to person(s) who have resources to offer. Whether you have work ability, monetary resources, sheds, solar equipment, well drilling experience, or ANYTHING that can help your community on the land – lets do it. All of my land is RAW and has no utilities – there are utilities available but I will not be hooking them up. The choice is yours.

Lets discuss what we can do and I will in exchange have a contract drawn up that donates your acres of land to you in exchange for whatever we agree.

    still have land? I have experience in construction. I’m a very good eqiupment operator. That is what I do for a living. Loaders, skid steers, excavators, backhoes. I’m 40 something and have worked construction m whole life. What I don’t know, I can usually figure out pretty quickly.

    I am interested in your proposal regards 2 acres of land. I am seeking an off grid parcel to build a home, make a garden, raise some small livestock and live away from city life. I have numerous skill sets to offer. I have built everything from homes to furniture to cabinets and a boat. If its wood, I have built it. I make knives and do leather work. I have made a few tools for wood working and am an accomplished cook.
    I am a retired police officer/detective with SWAT participation. I have trained people in both the law enforcement side as well in construction. I have lived abroad as a language teacher at a couple prestigious universities in Eastern Europe. I hope some of these skills may be of interest and I may hear your response. Thank you..

    Hello.
    My name is Thomas and I have many skills in the construction industry. I am young and eager to help in anyway needed. I specialize in electrical and plumbing, but have tons of other skills in many different areas. I long for a life of freedom, not the fake government feed freedom. I’m talking about the freedom we had back in the 1600 or 1700, where you could put a cabin anywhere and there was no legal BS or Government sticking it’s nose into it.

    I’d like to see if I could be of any service.

I barley graduated high school, so I have my diploma. I’ve always been to myself, sorta like an out cast wherever I have been, being a ‘loner’. I’m now 20 years young(21 on oct 29th) and I’ve been homeless since I was 18 with no luck finding a job. So again, if your offer still stands, I am more than willing to hike from here(Seattle) to where you need me especially if you are offering land in return of my assistance/help/able body.

I emigrated from France 5 years ago because I couldn’t take on the overcrowded immoral population of western Europe. I found peace in the land of Jack London. It is not the best conditions for growing food or solar energy but the vast land has plenty enough to offer. I am not looking for anything particular as I can take care of myself and my family but like you would be willing to help. I soon will be a journeyman Electrician but living in the north teaches you many trades as you are pretty much on your own most of the time. Where about is your land in Alaska and what are you plan for it. Take care
