[before_listing id=432 images= youtube=null] Well, hard to do much with no ride, and no money. But I do have the will to live off grid, and do whatever it takes to do just that. I’m a survivalist and I hunt and fish when given the chance, at home I usually like to improvise and create new things out of old. I’m very skilled with the outdoors, a woodsmen of sort. I’ve always wanted to go off grid ever since I was little and first saw documentaries about it. Now I don’t have any money to speak of, and no means to travel, and I need someones help to get me to a nice community or individuals home because life’s really got me down and has taken a turn for the worse, i’ll work off any debts I owe because work doesn’t bother me.[landbuddy_listing id=432 youtube=null]

    My name is Page. I am a 24 year old male Marine.
    The good news: I have 21 acres in the mountains in New Mexico, Well drained, almost a mile above sea level, 30% wooded, relatively flat, beautiful, mild climate. Great growing season.
    The Bad News: I have 3.5 more years on my Marine contract in which I will not be able to begin construction on my land.

    I am looking for someone to work with on my parcel. Hopefully get some things like planting/clearing trees started before I get there. I do not have on site water but there is a guy with a well half a mile down the road that sells it pretty cheaply and rain is 15″ a year so with the right setup, you can get all youll need.

    I have a full design and layout ready for me when I get out. It has been 2 years in the making. That said, It only requires me to have about 8 Acres. another 7 Acres will be wooded (I cant stand not having woods nearby.) This leaves about 6 acres unaccounted for. Now If done efficiently, we could share the same agricultural/ livestock space and keep the 6 acres wild. I dont mind this.

    What I would need: I need someone on site to start basically practicing good husbandry and landkeeping. With proper animal care, crop growing, and maintenance, I think that the land could see yields well beyond my needs. Therefore, Im not opposed to sharing. I can discuss all plans with you at length and you can set up your own establishment, as well as start cultivating land. When I get there, I can build my own shelter (will probably need a hand) and then we work together on the land. The time before I get there, the land would be free use to you as long as you are continuing to work on it towards the common plans we’ve discussed. In approx 3.5 years when I arrive, I will be there to exchange help, knowledge, and resources. At this point I will charge rent based on the land you are using as your own. (depending on size $100-1000 a month) This rate is negotiable and can be decided before or after I arrive.

    If you are interested, I will give you some pictures of what I am working on as well as a rough outline of whats going on and we can discuss it further.
    Things to note, I plan on having kids, pigs, a dairy cow, chickens. I am libertarian, christian, and not a hippy. Just cheap. I am an Eagle Scout, Marine, and used to teach wilderness survival. I know quite a bit about a lot of things. I am an old fashioned guy just looking to raise a family to read books, play outside on nice days and play board games together on rainy days. I hate desk jobs and being indoors.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
