im doing it op but its a slow road to true self sustainability and in the meantime i enjoy eating.
i just spent the weekend digging out my root cellar.
Maybe you should invite a few people to move onto the land and pitch in so thingscan get going quicker
yeah im still looking for those perfect people but i had a bad expierience with an individual last year an im not in any big hurry to repeat it.
this may be some good advice for you if your the op
i offered a small chunk of land 10 ac for a very cheap price
had a person come out and camp for three months who had no money and very few skills ate a lot of my food and did very little of anything in that time finally got fed up with him
and got him off the property but he stole some property
as he was leaving.
Whereis your land?
Didnt the guywant to do anything at all?
I GUESS THERE ARE OPPORTUNISTS EVERYWHERE.
Hell ill just be happy to find a few folks who wouldnt mind me working a slow pace which iswhyiofferedto buy the land and other necessities needed to start.
properties are in nevada
i wont go into the specifics of this particular interaction
as i will only get pissed off more with myself for being so gullible and slow to act.
if you will take any advice
pick an area that you like and start building your own dream
dont expect anyone to share it with you at first or even help.
build it and they will come
(field of dreams i think)
some places are already a hotbed of offgridders some places are just very remote.
Trinity was right most places have building codes now
but there are many places where those building codes
are hardly enforced.
that guy who promoted earthships called them pockets of freedom i think you may try a search for that.
