I’m like a kind of “modern-hermit”, a free independent and smiling “spiritual”, free from viciousness/materialism and well-seasoned in vanishing alone into nature/jungles/mountain-tops … Apart from my nature/jungle stays, I have also created a small “nature-place” of my own in a corner of a village where I often go to relax/work/research/smile with plants, birds and creatures… (a basic cottage with no electricity, cooking with firewood, lighting with Kerosene oil, natural well-water, a tree-hut, paddy fields …) Also, I’m searching for a more suitable location (land) in or close to a jungle, away from human-voice, man-made hassles etc, so that I can settle permanently with tranquilizing nature, animals and so on. What I can and cannot do as an individual is clear to me, and I’m happily moving along that path with confidence … In the meantime, I am also exploring the possibilities of organizing a small group of like-minded individuals who are longing to live happily in nature/jungle (or you may call it off-the-grid, into the wild, freeing yourself from the rat race, or whatever…lol) for the rest of their lives so that TOGETHER we can contribute “something” better for all of us, other like-minded people, nature and humanity as well… I’m a vegetarian, happy and funny, do not belong to popular religions, very open-minded, free from superstitions, politics etc, financially independent, practice simplicity/minimalism, healing arts, relaxation/meditation … I’m not afraid of living or dying, but enjoy non-violence and do not harm other living creatures too… So, if you are really longing for this “freedom & beautiful, deeper connection with nature/universe” and have the strength, ability and knowledge with some sustainable income, you can do it practically like I do …(if you like to join with me here in this island Sri Lanka, expenses are less …) (I must make it clear again that I am not inviting someone to just run a farm in the wild and kill, eat and sell animals etc…) Good Luck to All !!! Just feel free to contact me … Kumar (firstname.lastname@example.org) Reply richard korejwo June 21, 2016 Canadian 59 Y/O male..Would be great to meet an offgrid bound women .I live in middle of the rockies and plan to be off grid in approx 3 to 5 years .Or less depending on the local economic situation .email me at email@example.com I am looking to meet a serious off grid bound women,knows what S H T F means ,likes chickens ,snow ,privacy ,gardening ,spiritual (but not insane about it)and the energy to do with a great mate and someone who desires it also.For more info on me ,do send me an email..Dating sites are not a good venue to find you..Stay cool and stay you Reply charlie April 11, 2016 i am 50 yrs old and living in indiana. why is it that all the off grid and survival oriented schools and communities are located in the south, the east coast , or out west? i am currently seeking someone to correspond with who might be able to help me get started. i am also seeking to correspond with a female who is interested in exploring going off grid with me. Reply Olliep June 20, 2015 Good Evening, About 2 years ago, I began looking into living off grid as a more efficient, healthier, and overall happier alternative to the rat race. I investigated land all over the country and after countless hours of research, I settled on Canon Milagro by Santa Rosa, New Mexico as the building site for my dream. It is everything I could have ever wanted and now I’m inviting others to join me. There are approximately 9.5 miles of country gravel roads leading to the property from I-40. Four-wheel drive is recommended for the occasional snow-producing storms but nothing too damning. Approximately 30% of the gently rolling hills are scattered with Juniper and Pinion Pine trees ranging from 8’ to 20’ tall. In short, this place is my paradise. Also, if I am looking to touch base with society again, located about 30 miles away, Santa Rosa, NM is the closest town. It’s a quiet, friendly town of approximately 3,000 residents. In addition to very basic shopping, Santa Rosa hosts the famous deep diving hole, The Blue Hole, several motels and excellent restaurants, including authentic Mexican food. The area boasts a moderate climate with almost 300 sunny days a year. (See the chart below for references compared to US average climates.) This land is the canvas on which I will build my dream but I don’t want to just keep it to myself. I want to share it with others who are interested in living free, happy, and healthy. This is a place of freedom. The only rule is to Live and Let Live. If you are interested, email me firstname.lastname@example.org Sincerely, Page Reply S Bey May 3, 2015 Writing from the Atlanta territory. We are seeking people to pull resources together to create more freedom. We are very serious. There are a few options to explore. All non-judge mental welcome. We are vegatarian/vegan holistic.

If your interested I have pictures and more info my email is email@example.com Reply Matthew February 15, 2015 I’m moving to the wilderness of Georgia in less than two months. I’m from Texas and I’m a Christian. Looking for like-minded people that are interested in coming with me. I have proven survival skills, and i specialize in edible plants. (This isn’t my first time living in the wild). Its ok if you don’t have survival skills. I just want people who love Jesus and love the forest, and won’t leave when things get tough. If your mentally tough, can hike at least 10 miles, and are willing to work and learn, message me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Reply Haley February 9, 2015 Hi everyone! I am so grateful for finding this website. Its seems that no matter how hard we try, neither my boyfriend or I can find fulfillment or satisfaction in the system we are living in. Through research, consideration and plenty of lengthy conversation, we have decided that getting away from society, and back to nature is the path we must take. We know that we cannot do this on our own right now. We are a young couple (20 & 21) but we are passionate, hardworking and willing to learn anything that someone is willing to teach us. We have no specific religious affiliation one way or another and spirituality is not a prime focus of ours. We currently both eat meat but are seriously considering a vegan diet. We are interested in being a part of something that uses clean energy and would eventually like to live a clean sustainable lifestyle, but are open to whatever comes our way at this point in our journey. As far as location, we are willing to explore any of our options. We currently reside in the Midwest so we are open to many places. We have talked specifically about Oregon, Arizona, Colorado and Tennessee. While warmer climates are appealing, any place where we can be surrounded by the beauty of nature will be more than enough. If you have any questions, can offer advice etc. Please feel free to contact me at email@example.com Thank you so much! Reply SueAnne February 1, 2015 Off Grid in Nova Scotia Canada.
