I have 40 spectacular acres of painted desert hills, cliffs, hoodoos, caves, natural amphitheaters,  and plateaus of white moonscapes accessible only by the pueblo ladders you are going to help build!  I’m looking for someone with building skills to join me!  I want to add a hand built stone chapel onto a relic of a stone and petrified wood fireplace on the land!  I would like to open it up to hikers coming out of the nearly adjacent Petrified Forest Park Wilderness and to retreat goers!  I envision cob, earth  and stine huts and hogans, sheep herder and gypsy wagons, and vintage trailers in  keeping with the Route 66 theme of the area and traditional Mongolian yurts atop the mesas!  These for visitors and retreat goers and artists in residence!  No pay but you can build a hut here for yourself and help develop a community that can sustain itself with the retreat!  You must be contributing and able to sustain yourself.  I have two horses and would like also to find someone with more horses to start a trail riding operation into the park wilderness where riders can see Creation Science evidence firsthand!  I also want to create a small Creation Science Museum with area evidence!  I have a petrified log jam atop my high mesa and cliffs that had to be completely underwater to create the petrified logs and jam!  I plan on doing art installations on this land  including  dry bones singing from Ezekiel  37. This consists of smooth white river branch and pit fired white bentonite clay (from the clay onsite) wind chimes that are arranged into a cathedral like sanctuary outdoor space.  This will be in a hidden natural amphitheater on the land that is assessable only by  four Pueblo  ladders to be built. At the back of the amphitheater wall is an incredible ancient petrified wood staircase! If you love the austerity of the painted desert and are Christian and dedicated to and love Yeshua then I hope to hear from you! We  could also use a marketing type person with computer skills  to help us become self-sustaining. Creatives are welcome. I am also starting a venture called Creative Ground Perfectly Created by the Creator, handpicked by an artist. The first parcel to be offered will be a 10 acre hill of lava that is like a tiny volcano in itself! It is at the base of a colorful large extinct volcano in what I called the Valley of Fires  because this is one of the three volcanoes visible in the area! It is a very special place. The Navajo do ceremoniesatop the volcanoes. The parcel that  will be for sale has pink and white painted desert hills atop The black and green velvet hillside . I am hoping that creatives will come into the area and become part of  the developing Christian creative community. Come soon at the ground level, haha and you can help put in the sand point well and the fencing for the horses! I am looking forward to hearing from you ! Be well and be blessed!

      I am 33 yo and have many wisdoms to bring to the table. Wisdoms acquired from a long life of learning things the hard way. I dont find pleasure in the mighty dollar nor most of what it can buy. It seems the only place i feel content is n the woods or in a river. I take my kayaks with me everywhere. I would like to perfect my bow hunting skills and i am a fisherman. I am an artist and like to draw paint n would like to develope my tattooing skills. I am probably one of the best workers you’ll ever meet. Quick, accurate n done right. Work shouldnt be done any other way. Sloth, is disgusting to me. I love to use my body n mind. My life has been filled with so much pain n calamity. I aim for this because i want to heal on the inside. My soul has been crushed many times over. I have been a very bad person. N that person i was, spread like a disease throughout my lifes’ intricate relationships. I do detest who i was. However, i do think that my life has given me many things most dont have. Determination, humbleness, the knowledge of what really isnt important to worry about. If i came, id stay for life. N build whatever n take care of whatever like theres no tomorrow. I have nothing in my life i really have to live for anymore except, the search for my nirvana. I would bring me, my kayaks, my bow, fishing poles, random assorted tools, my clothes, n my will power. I really cant get it across to you using these meager human words the drive that i have, the commitment, the desire, the intelligence, wisdom n insights i have. Im not super hip on computers so email me, any of you people who have a community that can feel what im saying. oldpadawan86@gmail.com im in central missouri currently and am willing to travel anywhere as long as you’re FR!
