    OK I am a retired cook. I come with my own income and wish to cook and drive for a off grid homestead. Spent 4 yrs in Army as electronic tech a million yrs ago. I am looking for a short term gig only. 3 or so months.
    Your post did not give even a country of origin. If you are on west side of US please let me know if you are in need of tasty meals.

    Hello everyone! I’ll attempt this post a second time. I’ve been working on an off-grid (modern amenity) community plan since getting out of the Army in ’02 that was originally intended for friends and family only, but as I’m finding so many more people are looking to do this type of thing, I thought I’d open it up to everyone. We’re quite close to “go” after all these years. The plan consists of many interesting bits and pieces pulled from a myriad of different fields I’ve studied and professions I’ve held, which include: Architecture, Sustainable Design, building codes, law, accounting, agriculture, aquaculture, information systems, and physics to name a few. Being part of the project means a healthy, sustainably designed and built home, built by all of us but financed mostly by you. It means natural, chemical and GMO free food, with all animals treated humanely. It means pitching in a few hours a week for the various projects or businesses bringing money into the community for your equal share in all profits. It means living by people who care about each other. It means relieving yourself from the rat-race we all seem to be searching for a way out of. This project is not the only of its kind, having just recently come across several other small to medium organizations in various stages of doing almost the same exact thing. Come be a part of something different, yet familiar.

    Our organization mission is this: “Our purpose is to further the technology, systems, and societal integration of sustainable practices in a closed-loop, self-sustaining system designed to profit, while increasing the health of the environment and all of it’s inhabitants.

    I have a closed group on Facebook as a method to share information and keep in contact, as well as a drive file with the plans and data. You can look me up on Facebook and send me a message so I can add you, or my email is my last name, then a “.”, then my first name@gmail.com

    Hello everyone! Glad to see some recent posts in here! I’ve been working on an off-grid project for 15 years now and it’s finally reached the point of go. I had originally planned this for only family and friends, but in starting to see so many people these days are having the same thoughts, I thought we would open up to everyone. I have a pretty detailed plan pulling from the many disciplines I’ve studied and/or learned professionally. I’d love to speak with anyone who is interested in sustainable living and cutting out of the rat-race. Look me up on Facebook as I’ve started a group for people like us to easily keep in touch. My email, if you don’t have Facebook, is my: lastname.firstname@gmail.com

    Hello, I am a 52 yr old male, Native American ex-navy personal. I am gathering the things to go off-grid by the fall of 2018. I have only been stocking my spare room for the last 6 mo’s, but it is crammed packed with: doors, windows, hinges, start-up 500W solar system, nails, screws…and just about anything else I can get my hands on. I am not sure if I qualified to be responding to your ad. For the words, ” tactical skills” in your ad kind of confuses me a bit. I am not looking to move into the Alamo or a hate group. And I am not gung-ho for our government as I once was. But I still would protect this land of ours and it’s people with my last ding breath. But no, I have not been trained tactically.
    From 1997-2005, I have backpacked well over 13,000 miles across the mountain ranges of the United States with my dog, Woody (R.I.P. Woody). I now have a 10 mo old Plott Hound Dobermen Mix who weighs about 80lb’s. I am the kind of person who can not live without a dog. Alder goes ever where with me. I am his care giver and he is my child.
    Survival in the wild isn’t a hardship to me fore I enjoy it. Not sure what you mean by, “Real World experience” unless you mean, “tactically” then my answer would be no. I have been looking to buy a very small plot of land in the lower 48’s, but have yet to find a place. If by chance you would like to know more about me or Alder, please feel free to let us know.
    Respectfully Christopher Rivers
