I'm a divorced, 61 yo, white, American man.  I have been working in the construction industry for the past 38 years and I have a lot of construction and building experience, carpentry, plumbing, mechanical and electrical construction, including solar and wind systems, water and HVAC systems, water treatment and waste water treatment systems.  I have just returned to the US from 12 years working abroad in Asia, Australia and Africa.  I'm tired of the "rat race" and I'm going to transition to an off the grid, permaculture, intentional community lifestyle.  I am a loving, giving, caring, compassionate man and I want a loving relationship with intellectual, emotional, physical, sexual and spiritual stimulation every day for the rest of my life.  I am looking for a woman to travel the world or the US, volunteer helping others for 2-5 years to know each other well and work together, while we learn, plan, decide the best lifestyle for us, and implement the transition plan.  We could also visit some existing intentional communities and offer them labor, visit some properties for sale, decide where we want to locate.  If you're also disappointed with of the direction of the world and want to escape from the "rat race", please reply and let's exchange contact information and chat.  I'd really like to hear your ideas, skills, knowledge and reasons for wanting to make the move.

Dave B.

PS:  one stipulation - I don't want and cant have any children, so you need to be OK with a family of the 2 of us.  Grown children from a previous marriage or relationship is great and will be welcomed.  I have 3 grown children from previous marriage.

Thanks for the response to my post.  I'm planning to visit some intentional communities, so I will definitely be in touch.  Do you accept singles, in case I don't find a mate?  I was born and raised in South-Central Ohio, so it would be like coming home.  

Take care,

Dave B.
