I heard about this site from a friend, and am new here. For the last 3 years I've been starting a homestead on 10 acres in northern Maine. I got this land because it felt just right to me, nestled in the forest in the mountains and lakes nearby, no neighbors in sight, but only a 20 minute ride into town to Walmart for any necessities. Its always been a dream of mine to build my homestead in harmony with the nature around it. Slowly clearing an area of trees by hand for a cabin or a project at a time. I don't believe in taking bulldozers and demolishing nature just to have giant empty fields of grass. So over the last couple years I've handbuilt a cabin in the woods, drilled a well for hand pump water, set up an electrical source, and so on. I would say it's a cross between modernized living and an off grid lifestyle which is what I had in mind. I continue to work hard on my cabin and land every day out of respect for the land and nature around me. I want things to thrive and continue on undisturbed. But whenever i am not busy I spend my free time pursuing my passions. I have a team of Siberian husky sled dogs, and they also occupy a large chunk of my time. My cabin is about a 1/2 mile from the road and in the winter time they are my source of transportation to my car lol. But they are great and have such personality.

As for what I am looking for here, I want to meet a woman who loves being close to nature, believes in pursuing passions and happiness over following social standards, and has the same sense of awe about life. Anyways, I won't go on forever about myself. If you are interested feel free to reach out.

I'll identify as a neighbor who wishes your project well.

Just want to say reading this impacted me. I feel ... honored simply to be reading this. I'm feeling like an "earth neighbor" living on earth in the same heart ... other side of the globe, other life stage/needs, but same heart.

Curiously, reading this nourishes my own tropical endeavors of the day ... dealing with fire ants to protect people wanting to help me build a RuthStout garden.
