Joy here-- I am in the process of creating an off grid permaculture life. I bought 7+ acres in Colorado, built a cordwood house, put in a well, and 3 kw of solar. I am hopeful for my soulmate for a simple life. I'm debt free, liberal, petite, healthy, and very at peace. It would be great for you to be in your 50s, with experience and a love of mountain life. I am sensitive and caring by nature; folks find me calming to be around. We are all one. Do you agree? I believe in a high vibration of living and eating. You might express as either gender and still be able to co-create with me! I value sensual creativity!

Tell me something about yourself and what you love in the mountains. I love the smells of the forest in the spring, the flowers in front of the house in the summer, the sound of elk bugling in the distance from my deck in the fall, ski touring up high or in the neighborhood during the winter, and coming home to a warm fire!

Let's play!! This is the fun part. What inspires you? I love the colors of things around the house and I am very visual. I enjoy homemade music. Do you play any instruments? I cook great enchiladas. I love travel, juice, riding bikes, and animals. Do you have any animals?

A greenhouse for food options and a wood burning hot tub or sauna are all possibles on my list. Also, a magnetic free energy style generator to pump water would be great! Tips from those with experience are also appreciated

I choose great communication and partnership while keeping open to combining resources and moving to our together choice location. I'm curious to see what unfolds.
In peace, Joy

Congratulations on the life you are building for yourself.  Sounds lovely!  That is a great cabin, for sure.

So is that you brushing the dog?

Best of luck finding the right person to share your off-grid lifestyle with : )

Thanks, Matthew!

Yes, that's me showing how the animals love to be close. Also, showing off my dirty blond hair. I've got blue eyes hidden in there, too. I just thought it was a different view...

Do you think I should change it to get some responses? I was hoping to attract the not so superficial type but that may not be a good method to find my soulmate?

Hi Joy!  I think you've got a great post and I like the picture.  It's good to know that you can shave a dog whilst squatting a cat.    Because of the time of year, Permies seems to be less active than normal, so you may just have to be patient until some people get the time to get back here.  If I was American I'd have sent you a PM by now, though I'm not in my 50s, but don't let that discourage you...

Best of luck finding someone special.

Yea that photo is nice catch of the moment.

I like your idea of a bit of mystery and getting to know the person first although you would eventually see the other and vice-versa.

EIther way beautiful cabin and nice forest.

BEE WELL!!

Thanks for your encouragement, Ben!

I just thought I would upload some solar system pictures to keep the suspense going and share more

Enjoy, Joy

Hey Joy, my name is Steve and I'm also in Colorado. I came here 3 months ago to follow my childhood dream of one day living in Pagosa springs (a place I went every year as a kid). I came to work on a homestead on the Western slope but turns out it didn't exist. I have been searching for a off-grid place that could use some help from a certified arborist, ranch hand, gardener, or fence builder. I just found this website and was checking the personals because I'm also single but looking for friendship before a relationship.
I fell in love with the Western slope 35 years ago and never forgot my promise to one day return to the place I found majestic and truly peaceful. What I love about the mountains is the fact that they held a piece of my soul from my first glimpse so many years ago.
I am a great cook first of all. Lol I dry foods and love to can fruits and veggies. I cook in a Dutch oven most often and chicken and dumplings is my most famous meal to cook for folks. I apologise for not being quiet yet in my 50's but I'm at the border of it. If any of this interest you please feel free to message me back.

Hi Steve,

Ahhhh a love of the mountains and knowing where the western slope is! Fantastic to hear from you. My place is a little like a homestead but with no fences and with property taxes. It sounds like your skills complement mine quite well, so please let's have a PM conversation. You have to initiate this, I believe 😊.

I'm excited and thanks so much for reaching out, Joy
