[before_listing images= youtube=null] We are 40 + 27 years old, living in new york city, she bartends / waitresses and I run a small moving company, saving up to move out west and live off the grid. We have saved and purchased an old small 15 ft rv trailer and have mounted an extensive 650w solar system to it, with plans to use as a base system once we find land and build a small cabin. We dont have a lot of money but we are planning to hit the road this spring and go westward. We’d like to find a homestead to stay on and help out and learn more, either temporarily or if a good fit, permanently. I have a lot of Computer skills, Windows, Linux, hardware, networking.. Gardening skills, raised self watering beds, organic practices, solar powered irrigation pumps, tomato cultivation and other veggies. I have worked with horses, cows, pigs, chickens.. I have some construction experience.. I have a well rounded jack of all trades knowledge, some stronger in some areas, and much more to learn in others. She is extremly creative and resourseful, makes homemade organic soaps and vegetarian meals. We are skeptical of the federal government and the bankers that run the politics, and of most of society that are sitting ducks and contribute to the problems by being passive or supportive of the practices of the attitudes that are against that of the original frontier freedom oriented pioneers and self suffient DIY’ers who believe in limited government and personal responsibility.

Ideally we’d like to find the almost impossible… A modest peice of land situated in a high valleyin the foothills with mild weather (not too cold, not too hot) on south facing tract, with a water table close to the surface to tap into, or an all year spring and / or stream, or at least a water collection system that is reliable year round.. Good soil to grow in and beautiful landscape. Thinking this may be in Northwestern or Eastern Arizona, Southern Utah, Northeastern or western New Mexico, Southern Colorado….[landbuddy_listing youtube=null]

    Tom & Nina:

    Sorry, I didn’t see you post any email address where we can get in touch with you.
    I am gathering folks as I write this for an “Off Grid” property in Eastern Arizona. Although your “ideal list” is not totally realistic for this region, it’s not out the question either.
    As you can image, water is biggest challenge, but not impossible.

    I think you’ll have to send me message if you want to talk further.

    Happy New Year everyone!

    I AM SETTING UP A LOCATION IN WEST TEXAS, AS A FALLBACK PREPARED LOCATION, IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE AS IT WERE, BUT EASY TO GET TO IF YOU KNOW HOW TO GET THERE.

    HOWEVER WE HAVE TO LIVE OFF THE LANDS, LIVE OUT OUR LIVES PEACEFULLY AND IN A SMALL KNOT COMMUNITY, AND EVEN HAVE A BASIC JOB OR BUSINESS, TIL THE SHTF AND WE GO OUT AND UNDER GROUND IF WE HAVE TO

    I HAVE 20 ACRES IN WEST TEXAS, AND I AM MAKING IT AVAILABLE TO LIKE MINDED PEOPLE, WE WANT TO PREP AND BE READY FOR THE WORST CASE SCENARIO, BUT ALSO TRAIN AND TEACH THE YOUNGER GENERATION TO DO THE SAME.

    BE SELF SUFFICIENT AND GROW OUR OWN FOODS AND VEGIES.

    WHERE YOU LOCATED AT AND WHAT ARE YOUR PRO SURVIVAL IDEAS ?

    YOU WILL NEED TRANSPORTATION AND BASICS TO LIVE, AND I AM OFFERING UP TO HAVE A FEW MINDED PEOPLE TO ASSIST IN SETTING UP AND RUNNING THIS SURVIVAL VENTURE, AND IF NOTHING ELSE, BE PREPARED FOR ANYTHING.
