We (myself, husband, young child) live completely off-grid in N. CA. Our property is surrounded by national forest and for several months out of the year we get snowed in (ie: if we need to make contact with the outside world we have to snow shoe out 12+ miles to the nearest plowed road). We are currently looking for interns for spring/summer/fall to take off-grid lessons. We are self-sufficient, raising/growing our ow food, building our own shelter(s), setting up our hydroelectric system, etc etc etc. We are listed on the website wwoofusa.org (stands for world wide opportunity on organic farms) where you can read a detailed description on who were are, our homestead and what we can offer you (and what we expect in return). On that site our location is listed as Broken Snowshoe Ranch. This year one of our main focus (besides the ongoing gardening, land maintenance, animal husbandry, etc) is to build a new structure for our interns/guest. This will involve falling trees (ie: using chain saws), milling up the wood, constructing it, etc.

This is a great opportunity for someone wanting to get a taste of off-grid lifestyle.
