I put in an extremely long post last week and couldn’t find a way to edit it to shorten it.
Short version: Sick of the money game, sick of the superficial values in society, want to be self-sufficient, just can’t do it alone.
I have 4 acres that’s surrounded by bigger parcels. It’s an ok spot to learn and try out some off grid technologies, but ultimately I’d like us to relocate to a better place.
I am ON THE GRID right now, so I’m using a well pump for the well, a big AC and heating unit, electric stove, etc. There is space to create an off grid spot, but for coding purposes, the primary residence has grid power.
Once we learn what we need to learn, we can sell this place and look for something else in a prettier location. Florida is ugly to me and I need a little change of season and I’d love to have an underground spring.
I’ll need a partner that can pitch in about $200 a month to keep us floating as we explore off grid technologies. I do have some solar panels (4 of them at 280 watts each, but I don’t have the rest of the system. We’d have to slowly build it up.)
IF YOU ALREADY HAVE LAND, I’m not interested in going onto your property. I already have property. This ad is for someone who wants a place and a partner to learn, and then as partners, we’ll then decide where we want to buy land.
If you’re interested in talking to see if we have the same vision of off grid, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
