    Hello,
    My name is Dale I am 38 years young. Very Enthusiastic, loving, kindhearted, loyal, respectful, and among a variety of other attributes a very dedicated hard working man. Some qualities and skills that I can contribute to the community would be. Extensive knowledge in construction both commercial and residential. Very well rounded. Kind of a Jack of all trades in the construction field. Everything from cement finishing, HVAC, plumbing, tile & flooring, framing, and roofing among many other skills that have been so graciously taught to me through experience, trial and error.
    I’m dreaming of living a simple harmonious LIFE. Extending positivity and LOVE. Freely giving that which was so LOVEINGLY given unto me. THIS IS MY CALLING. Thank you it is a privilege just by envisioning your dream. May all your hopes, dreams, and wishes come to fruition.
    Much LOVE & LIGHT

    Hi I am new here and looking to learn skills related to outdoor survival and building of natural structures such as cob houses or other sustainable structures. Regardless of what the future brings, I am interested in being closer to nature.

    PRACTICAL SKILLS
    Cooking/baking
    Plant gathering/foraging
    General resourcefulness/versatility
    Educated/intelligent
    Academic/massive resource for teaching children/adults and or researching anything

    EXTENDED SKILLS/BACKGROUND
    My background is in a wide range of skills, but is mostly academic. However, with that being said I am extremely interested in plant gathering and foraging and have done some of this myself.

    I have a huge ability to learn and research anything, and my main practical skillsets are in communication and thinking of ways to work within existing systems so as far as I can tell there are always land rights usage issues and the need to deal with outside systems. Basically as far as I can tell regardless of your background/ideology this will be an issue.

    Basically, I would be a unique addition to any community on account of my unique skillset and background. I should mention I have camping and hiking experience, but it has been some time now and I would need to re learn this. Once I put my mind to something, I learn and absorb it extremely quickly, and I have thought many times about learning to live as naturally/inexpensively as possible.

    I am personally not aligned with any spiritual path, I am interested in seeking and learning about nature, hence the picture/image I’ve used of the green man/who looks after the forests and natural pathways. I would be interested to know the current status of your community and what your needs are as of now/the present time. Also, I am writing to confirm your landbuddy map location in Southern Colorado?

    Best,
    Matt

    My name is Jake and I am 19. This may sound corny but i spent my childhood homeless. Im used to working hard and God do i want to leave this city. I honestly have little to no skills to offer besides being a hard worker but ive been working a lot in the city getting nowhere at all and was planning to head into the wilderness anyway. I would be very happy if you could let me know if its still available.

    I have lived off grid for 26 years raising my now two grown children.After my divorce ,I had to integrate back into modern society. I still live a life not many corporate working women live. Old ways of living! LoL I want to retire as a off grid woman. But have not found a man in Texas that understands this way of life. I’m not into Religous cults! I have many skills and still learning a few along the way. But, for the most part ,very independent and abel to deal with situations that need solutions. Primitive life I have lived it!

  17. Andrew Blackburn,

    I am am a retired very liberal Army Ranger from 75th Ranger Regiment and would be very useful in our community. I am tired of this rat race of America and want to find a welcoming group of people who need someone with carpentry, mechanical, and all around survival skills for living in an off grid community. I am self sufficient, easy going, willing to help each and everyone with whatever is needed. I love the outdoors and living off the land. I lost my family over a year ago and have been wanting to move off grid to where I feel the most free and comfortable. I’m a simple man who is willing to help our community in anyway possible. I would love to converse more in depth with someone if i would be sent an email.

        hello Im Thomas what would you like to accomplish my vision is to have a self sustaining community where we can welcome all of gods creatures great and small. we need not spend time with electricity and internet but building a life and indeed a future for those on gods earth whom have been stricken by humanity’s unnecessary evil. i too have had this vision and would love nothing more than to work together to bring this vision to life. but we must be on the same page. as gold told Noah i believe our goal is to insure life and that your land will be home to anyone and anything that asks for or indeed needs our help. i pray you succeed in your endeavour with or without me and may god be with you my friend .
