My family and I are on the road for this year as we scout places to buy land and homestead while trying to avoid mold due to illness from living in a toxic mold rental house previously.  We are trying to find a place to overwinter in Arizona, New Mexico, or Nevada where we can park our RV, preferably a place that doesn't get winter temps (below 40 at night) or much precipitation during Oct - Mar.  I work remotely and would need to have good cell signal for my phone and internet as it is required for my job or good WiFi in lieu of that.  

Ideally, we would like to have power, water, septic/dump or RV hookups if possible.  Our RV is new and self-contained, so we wouldn't require anything more than that, and would consider what options are available.  I would be interested in trading labor (evenings/weekends) for rent / rental discount assisting with permaculture work or rammed earth construction, etc, as I am very interested in learning everything I can about both.  I do have some experience with organic style gardening and some head knowledge of permaculture concepts, but I'm an able learner and not arrogant or too proud to say I don't know how to do something.   I want to learn rammed earth because it isn't mold food, is sustainable and energy efficient, and most other building materials are problematic.  I want to learn all things permaculture as I intend to homestead / start a permaculture based farm when the land purchase happens.

If you know of a place that might work, please let me know.  Much appreciated!

- John

I would also mention that we could do a composting toilet instead of full hookups with sewer/septic. So we would only need power and water.
