My calling to homestead motivates me to explore any and all possibilities to achieve the freedom of a simpler life.  This may be a far-reach, but what the heck, it never hurts to try.  

I’m wondering if there are others, such as myself, that are called to homesteading, saving every dollar for land, gardening, preserving food, learning about livestock, collecting necessities here and there that will be helpful on the homestead.  Are you such a person?  With the cost real estate skyrocketing, the value of my savings isn’t keeping up with the rise in prices and it feels a bit discouraging at times.  And then there’s the fact that I’m in my 60’s and single and female to boot!  And although I’ve always been a homebody, when I think about living alone in the woods, well I’m not a hermit for heavens sake.  We need community, helpmates, another soul or souls to share the toil, successes and the failures in life.  It’s in our relationships we find richness.  

If you’d like to share your hopes and plans relating to homesteading please contact me.  My search is not for romance, it is truly to find at least one like-minded soul that would be willing to live in northern Idaho on the land (I’m not there yet), grow as much of our own food (plant and animal) as possible using regenerative methods by 2023.  Together we could make the dream a reality.

If you’re inclined to respond, please PM me and describe your calling to homestead, and please touch on what you can or cannot contribute financially, your background or experience with gardening and livestock, what you know about regenerative methods of growing plants and meat.

Hello Ms Compton:  The homesteading way of life is definitely a challenging one. I have read your past and recent posts.  I am experienced with the what, where, when, and how of you hearts desires. I am a local PNW native.  I am not experienced with how this forum works. In fact I don't know if you will receive this message?  If you do and would like to get acquainted in a private venue please respond with contact info.
