    Wow, its amazing how much can change in just a little time. I wanted to post an update just in case there are some who were curious about my situation. It turns out, I have purchased a small piece of property on the big island of Hawaii and will be moving over in January,2015. Its just an half acre so not really a lot of room for a community. I do however have enough room for one more person on the property. It would be nice to share this property with someone who is totally in love with nature, is willing to offer their labor in exchange for a place to lay their head. If your a person with a peaceful nature, willing to work hard, and have no criminal record, contact me and we can see if you are a good fit.
    The property is somewhat a jungle, so it will require a lot of hard work to clear a spot and a lot of work to build some sort of shelter. You will need some funds to get you over to the island and some funds to sustain you with food and water until we can establish a garden and rain catchment system for water. Also because it is a small space, I would not consider this a family suitable place. A companionship would be acceptable however. Anyways, this is the game plan now and thanks to everyone who commented on my post and good luck to everyone. PS. Land is very cheap in some areas on the Big Island, so check it out.

    I am interested in learning more about ‘off the Grid

    To all who have commented on my post and those in the future to comment, I wanted to give an update to my thoughts and goals.
    As mentioned in a prior post, I am interested in settling in an area that has a warm climate year round. I have searched for existing communities in that specific zone and have not found anything that fits my situation.
    I have now come to the conclusion, if I were to totally be honest with myself, there is no other solution but to accept the role and set in place the tools needed to establish a new community with like minded people.
    So, I am proposing the establishment of a group of people, a community, located in the country of Costa Rica, in a region with a warm climate, and with existing natural sustainable resources which would make it an ideal location to settle.
    I am now forming a core of members who would like to be a part of the initial development, and put together a set of living standards, creeds, laws, rules, codes, etc. which is a vital part of any successful, peaceful, community.
    So, if you would like to be a part of the structure process, please email me at
    Please understand, that upon taking on this role, you will be committing to offering your ideas and opinions as well as contributing monetarily to put together as a group to purchase the chosen parcel of land that will become the settling place of the community. Later, future members will have an opportunity to contribute monetarily and share ownership of the property.
    So, again, if this idea sounds like the answer you have been looking for, then email me and lets continue the conversations and hopefully fulfill our hearts desires, dreams, hopes, goals, and prayers…

    Hi Pamela,
    I am in the same predicament. I am 64 and have worked hard most of my life, and like you I too am looking for an of the grid community to join. I am looking for a place I can live comfortably too and share life. I know a little about gardening a willing to learn more. I am interested in Organic gardening. So if you hear of any community open to new members please inform me. My email is
    Sincerely Zaida

    I lived in Merida Yucatan as a teenager and loved it. I am now 63 and looking for a place to grow old in a sustainable manner. Unfortunately, I am one of those people who did not plan ahead, thus I have no money to retire on, just a meager monthly check that doesn’t even pay all my bills. So a place where I can live comfortably with a community to share life, wow, that would be great. I have knowledge and some actual experience that will help me live a simpler lifestyle that I can share with others. I currently live in Utah and have thought about finding a place in the central area, and also am looking at a new community being formed in Arizona. My young adult son also is looking for a place where he feels accepted. Maybe we can build something together!

    Thanks for commenting on my post Marisa, Kelly, and Cionaodh.
    Since I made the post, I have been searching google, facebook, youtube, and this site to try and locate communities. Surprisingly, most are not in the climate zone I prefer. On the other hand, the few I did come across, wanted a huge purchase price for a small piece of heaven.
    So, now, I am thinking, the other option I have is to assemble a group of folks like us, put our monies together, purchase a nice piece of land and create a new community.
    As for as land prices, land located in the Yucatan, Belize, (English speaking countries/regions), the prices for several acres goes from about $50,000, to the top of my ideal price rage of $150,000.
    So, lets continue this conversation, give your feedback, opinions, Ideas, and hopefully soon, we can all exhale and breathe in a new breath of fresh, peaceful air.
    Also, if you would like to contact me directly, my email address is….

    Castaway Paul, How are you? This was the last place on the web I would think about finding someone gay interested like I am in getting off grid.
    Maybe we could chat, though I admit to not using technology to it’s fullest much more, so I might give slow response as I am not always punctual.
    Send me a little more detail about yourself, history and dreams and I will do the same.
    Look forward to communicating soon.

    I am a 20, almost 21, female college student. It is coming down to the wire and I need to decide what “profession” I want to take on in life. I know for sure that I don’t want to contribute to “the madness” as Paul would put it. I am a very peaceful person as well. I want to go off-grid and learn how to live sustainably. I am not a fan of cold weather either. Moving towards the equator would be ideal to me.
