[before_listing id=344 images= youtube=null] We are already off the grid, have been for years and loving it! We’re looking for others to join us in our peaceful, off-grid survival community. We have 40 stunningly beautiful acres in the Sawtooth Mountain area of New Mexico, 10 miles from the nearest power grid. When things get crazy out there in “the world”, it will just be the next day for us…no big change in daily goings-on.

    Hello,

    I spent a year volunteering on Organic gardens to study sustainable living models. I went to Texas and traveled from east to west for that year and saw many different models, including communal living, since that is my eventual goal. I learned and saw a lot. I realized that it is not only possible but quite feasible. That lifestyle provides the quality of life I am seeking.

    I have seen how I can enjoy what I do, every day, and have a simple life that I can be happy in. I look forward to finding my place and being welcomed into that peaceful existence. This has excited me about the next chapter in my interesting life, which has led me to drafting this email to see if we may want to work together to make our futures as enjoyable and productive as we can.

    Hopefully,
    Jim

    Any chance you guys are still taking applicants?
    I have always been the outdoorsman, I recently separated from the U.S. Army where I gained precious skills related to one of my biggest areas of interest, off grid living. I am in the perfect situation to pick up all roots and find my livelihood.

    Hi! My husband & I have been looking at off grid living in Co awhile now. We are already residents of Colorado but we are also from Texas, we just don’t have any family to speak of and don’t know many people here. This is not an adventure we wish to embark on alone but yet with others who share the same passion to live self sustained in the world that is ever changing and unstable. We do have 3 children we would un-school between the ages of 10 & 13, and have been married 17 years. My husband is a sup. at a wind tower company here and by trade is a welder, builder, & sheet metal guy. He loves gardening, fishing and working. I work from home now but have also done many things, I catch on very quick with desire to never fail. I have degrees in paralegal as well as nursing but chose not to continue either venue as I have a strong desire to raise my own children instead of letting a sitter do it. We don’t have a bunch of money, but I do feal like we would have plenty to bring to the table. Reply if you still need a land buddy.

    Still looking for candidates?

    I’m a former USAF Electrician, served a total of 8yrs. Born in Jan, 1986. I do a bit of my own home gardening. I’ve been a raw vegan for about 2(?) years now. My passion is all around self sustainment with a bit of knoweldge and books (survival, herbal, self sus.) on the subject. I’m quite skilled in many areas with room to learn for more. I’m more on the spiritual side. I sun gaze, walk barefoot on the earth as much as possible, meditate and have a few instruments that I have yet to master. I don’t drink alcohol, don’t smoke. I plan on making an herbal garden, for healing of course with (tea’s, oils, hygiene care, etc). I have a litle bit of cash saved and currently live in San Antonio, TX and am willing to travel. If I seem compatible or if you have any questions, feel free to send me an email any time.

    Thanks

    Hello, I am most interested in your project, I am 56 and have a family with one daughter, She is 8. I am a wood worker, designer, dreamer, and a want to get back to the land type of fellow. I love nature and growing my own food with some farm animals. I am the type of person that tries to live my life with love and respect for others. I believe in helping others and expect others to do the same for me. I have many skills and enjoying making things with wood. I make electric guitars as well. Well I hope to hear from you soon my family and I will enjoy the challenge and the adventure in a back to nature life style.

    After 8 years in the army and now losing my full time job it is time for me to reset and find who I am. The simple woodsman life and 18th century woodcrafts are what I like and what calms me. I am not afraid of work and am adaptable to difficult situation. I want to wake up refresh and early, stoke the fire and relish in the tasks of my day. Then go to bed tired with the satisfaction of a day well spent. My bags are packed and im ready to go… all I need to hear is “ok se you soon”…email me if this at all possible… bodreyheying@gmail.com
