Greetings folks. I used to be on here I think but kind of drifted off as this site has gotten so big I can't find anything anymore. For those of you that might have been on Permsteading.com back when that site was active, I was active on there and went by mannytheseacow.
Mostly came back to this site as I've relocated a while back and selling my homestead in NW Illinois. Thought the folks here would be most interested as it is a unique system that takes a certain kind of person to appreciate all it has. Problem is I can't figure out where to post it this site has gotten so big!
Anyway, old place has to go, got a new homestead now improving on my mistakes from the first one. Will try to post some of it here when I have time.

Welcome and nice to see you. I was on Permsteading too, though at the moment I cannot recall my handle there, which was one reason I stopped logging in years ago. But I remember you as a fellow Illinoisian. Good luck with the new place. Where is it? I have started over again a few times over the years, most recently 5-1/2 years ago. It can be enjoyable, doing it better than before and learning from previous experiments. I look forward to seeing your new place and hearing about your plans. I just found this introductions forum (why is it buried at the bottom, I wonder?), so I will be posting my own intro as well.
