I just recently found this website. This is actually my first post... I would be interested in starting email correspondence with like minded people.

I am also single so maybe finding a perma girl (pun intended) would be a good thing! Please though I'm also interested in friends too, please anyone of any age, gender would be great to email.

My Dream
Provide my own energy and food. Create a modest earthbag/underground home totally self sustainable. I have a on grid home and a few acres now but am hoping to get more land in the next few years.

My Interests
Permaculture
Earthbag Building
Underground Building
Alternative Energy
Travel
Science
Space Travel
PC Games
Parenting (have two kids)
History
Antiques and much more!

Would like to make new friends and possibly find that special someone

Hello Joel,

Just a quick note. Not your dream "perma girl" here, but wanted to say hi and welcome to permies. I can only assume that you are located in the Ozarks, based on your username (or is that your real name? if so, cool!)? You might want to make that more clear in your post, since it is pretty important. Anyway, since you are interested in underground homes and are new here, you might not be familiar yet with Paul's work on promoting a building model that he calls "wofati." You should check it out! He doesn't use earthbags, but even if you do there is still a lot of relevant info on how to design an underground house that will really manage groundwater flow and therefore last. Start by reading his introductory article: go to richsoil.com and click the wofati link at top left. Also search the forums here at permies for wofati threads. I know there is a thread somewhere with some computer schematics posted that don't appear in his article - they were the first images that really got me to visualize the key concepts of the design.

Peace, and good luck with your homesteading and matchmaking dreams!

Thanks for that link it reminded me to finish "The Fifty Dollar and Up Underground House Book - mike oehler". Yes I am in the Ozarks, the bedrock is almost to the surface and very rocky in most all of this region making it hard to go underground. I think wofati is a neat concept and I will for study it. Thanks again for the info.

Not sure where you are in the Ozarks but I am just outside Joplin, MO a few miles into Kansas. Looking forward to meeting new like minded friends and hoping one might be a great partner someday. I am easy to find on Facebook if you want, Crystal Brook Kern.
