[before_listing images= youtube=null] I would like to find some people to teach me how to live off the grid. Ideally I would stay for 3 months to a year just to see if I am comfortable with the lifestyle. Obviously this can be longer or shorter, every situation is different.

I am a 23 year old with a college degree and this nagging feeling that city life might not be for me. I don’t want to be constantly working in a cubicle and still in debt. I want to work hard and see the result of my effort. I know that teaching someone can be exhausting, but I am a quick learner, and a positive person.

I live in Texas but am willing to travel anywhere in America for the right situation. Unfortunately, I still have some student loans, so a place that is close enough to civilization for a part-time job would be ideal.

I would appreciate any advice or direction you can give. I am just trying to figure things out, like everyone.
