Hello,

I have a beautiful 3 acres parcel in Keaau HI. Perfect temperature year round. Year round growing season. There is a well built 8X12 shed on it and a small prefab house. Soon there will be a water catchment tank and cargo container for storage and security. I know a lot about living off grid, solar, some construction. I contracted a tropical parasite disease called rat lungworm (not contagious) which messed up my eyesight and prevents me from driving. I have a good running truck which I cannot even drive.  I am looking for help in setting up the homestead and a person(s) who wish to to  live off grid in this beautiful place. Its going to have solar electric system and rainwater catchment soon. I have the skills,  I just don’t have the strength and eyesight that I used to have. Its hard when you cannot drive. I am 44 and people say I look like I am in my early 30’s but I don’t feel that way after getting sick. This has been a lifelong dream and I am going to achieve it no matter what. I really need help with transportation and some of the harder work.

    Hello my name is Kinsae. I go by Ki. I have decided to set out and start my journey helping and assisting as many people establish self sustainment that transcends into true thriving. I am working day and night as I have my full attention and focus towards expansion of a way of being. working with groups in the Unites States I found it time to start contacting those ready to actually make some moves. I have a small group of adeptly advanced individuals. I had intentions of doing this all alone and put so many plans of execution together that superseded space for any and everybody to be able to expand. It attracted me to those that really want and desire more. but that can also feel it. I am an visual artist, music producer, and tech inventor. I use my skill together for a full on immersion of creating tomorrow today. feel free to contact me @ omegaki@zoho.com

      That sound cool, but I’ like to be out in the woods and have solitude. I’m almost like a hermit. I’m not as well physically as I want to be from the nerve damage I got from this parasite. It was sort of like having a stroke.. I just want one person around thats chill and helps out once in awhile and does there own thing too.

      That would be better if there was more land I think. 3 acres seems big at first but its not that big. The lots are 150 ft wide and 600 feet long. There are a whole strip of empty lots parallel to mine though that people could buy.. I think it would great if people bought some and there could form naturally some kind of community.

        I just sent us the mail regarding those extra lots adjacent to your property. I only need to work about three or 4 hours a day with the business I have and the rest of the time could be spent helping you out. Look over my e-mail and let me know what you think.

    How did you contract the parasite?

      You get it from slugs. They don’t tell anyone because of the tourism industry and ag industry. It really bad here. Its best place I ever liued at and the most compfortable temperature and beautiful, but the slugs here carry .it. You have to washe your produce reallly well. But no one I know including me will ever eat local greens without cooking them. I got it 3 years ago and I got constant nerve pain If you drink undfiltered catchment tank water you can get it too. So its avoidable.. It was like having a stroke also. But besides rat lunworm, its awesome here!

      \\\\, its awssome here.

        I meant “rat lungworm” It interferes with typing skills also. I didn’t mean to say its awesome here twice either

      Hello, my name is Steve 35 years old and I have been thinking of living off the land amongst mothers nature for many years now and i feel its time to make a start to accomplish my dreams. I am very hard worker with good hands on skills and eager to learn the extra skills needed for a better life. I currently own my own home that i will sell to go towards the new life i have wanted for a long time. I feel i need this now more than ever. The hussle and bussle of life as it is, is getting me down to a point of stress and depression. This i do not want. I would like very much if you would consider me to help you with all you want to accomplish. I have been prepping to live off the grid for some time now by research and collecting items that will help me to do so. I just don’t have the skills to do it on my own. I can also drive. If you would consider me to work along side you. It would make my dream come true. Thank you and look forward to your reply

      Kind regards
      Steve
