My name's Cam, I'm about 20 years old (I look and seem a good bit older than that, though) I grew up in the backwoods of South Carolina. I am an country boy, an outdoorsman, a farmer, a traveler, a writer (for nature magazines), a Carpenter, a WWOOFer, a health coach, and a soon-to-be massage therapist. I write for Mother Earth NewsMagazine and Backwoodsman Magazine. I've studied natural building techniques for years, along with gardening, animal husbandry, botany, foraging, nutrition, psychology, primitive skills, and wilderness bushcraft. I am a Primitivist in some sense.
The more I learn, the more I realize I don't know. I've had to unlearn more things than I've had to learn. I believe that as children, we're born with an innate, instinctual, primal wisdom that is lost as we grow older the more we are influenced by society. I intend to reclaim that wisdom in order to become truly free, help heal the wounds of the people and Lands around me, and raise children that never lose that wisdom. My attitude in life is essentially that of a Native American Indian (with a few caveats), and I spent some time living with Apaches and Lakota people in the Rocky Mountains.
I have a deep love of Nature and an appreciation of the interconnectedness of all things. I'm a practical, down-to-earth, pragmatic, gentle, laid-back, easy-going, ambitious, reserved, deep, open, simple, and warm sort of person. I'm also a spiritual, Biblical Christian, which is important to me, but I am not closed-minded or dogmatic. I am sane, awake, and have not fallen for the recent nonsense that our government has attempted to convince us of. Need I say more?
My aim is to start a homestead community and live a life in complete harmony with the Land and with the Maker of the Land as much as I can. I'm aiming to do this in the Southern Appalachian Mountains, but I'm open to joining an existing community or going outside the USA to Central America or South America, if necessary. I am particularly interested in the tribes of the Amazon and their pristine cultures.
I referred to this as "the Ultimate Adventure" because that's precisely what it is to me: it seems to me like the ultimate accomplishment of a human being "made in God's image" to gently and lovingly nurture a Land into a garden of Eden---what could be greater than that these days? The Land, to me, is not just an inanimate set resources at our disposal to be used as we please, no, but rather, the Land is family to me, a living being, and therefore I take personal responsibility for the consequences of how I treat it. If all people shared this understanding, I do believe we wouldn't have so much of the problems we currently have in society.
I am looking for a woman who shares this way of thinking. I am searching for the one woman that I was made for and who was made for me. I do believe that a man and woman can unite and grow together so that they become like one person. I've been waiting for that my whole life, so I thought I would share it with you, for what it's worth. I look forward to hearing from you. (I've attached pictures of me below).
Hello Cam. I read your post with interest. I am a nineteen-year-old Christian female with great interest in homesteading. If you would be interested in talking more my email is email@example.com. I can send a picture and talk further privately.
All I can say is; wow! You are an amazing young man. If my daugther was older (she's 12)...you guys would make a perfect match:-)
Everything you have said here resonates for me as well.
I wanted to send you a link to this young woman; I feel you might be a good match:https://permies.com/t/218713/year-Christian-woman.
If you do get this community together; I would be happy to bring my family. I have been keeping my eyes and heart open for years now; looking for the right place and time to relocate my family. I love that area; and if you subscribe to Native American living..then elders will be important for your community:-)
May God bless your journey and everything you touch; I believe He will!

Thank you so much, Miss Marie! And you and your family would be more than welcome on any community of mine. I will get a community going or die trying. So I'd say there's a pretty fair chance. For you and anybody else, I'll leave my email here: firstname.lastname@example.org Take care,
