Hi there,

i’m thinking to buy some land and live off grid but have no experience on the necessary jobs that need to be done to set it up. i’m just exploring the possibility of sharing the land i will buy with someone that have skills to help me build. if you interested, let me know your ideas. i’m still at the very beginning of the process. i’m just exploring ideas. the ultimate goal would be to be fully self sufficient and be surrounded by like minded persons. we all seen the movie “into the  wild” so we know happiness only real when shared. 

hope to hear from you soon,

    How is your plan coming along Alex? NY is rather a large state. Have you settled on a location? I have a niece with a homestead up by the finger lakes. She loves the location except for the bloody winter cold.

    I am located in New York and have also been considering going off grid for some time now, I also have some money put away and I have building skills. Perhaps we should talk.
