Figured I'd go ahead and throw a line out.
My wife Rachael, 2 cats and I, currently reside in a 1982 transvan which we spent a year saving up for. our transvan is basically a mobile library with a bed and kitchenette, we also tow a station wagon that serves as a large trunk and toolbox, we will be purchasing a few solar panels to run our computers and some lights. The idea behind this setup is to be able to park outside some undetermined town on colorado's western slope and have some sort of home base to relocated from.
Currently we are in wisconsin saying goodbye to my family before we go as well as helping with some jobs to build up traveling funds. When september starts to end we will be heading down to Louisville KY for a wedding of a good friend, then we will head out west in pretty much a straight line.
Rachael is good with animals and has extensive experience with horses, I am interested in any sort of alternative way to garden while saving water, foraging, and ancestral skills. Both of us are pretty much at least sufficiently good at anything we put our hands to and are good hard workers.
We come with our own housing and transportation, we only need an out of the way to park our rig on your property.
Anyway, I couldnt possibly cover every aspect of this in such a small post, if you are interested, we would be happy to speak further with you.
thanks for your time, Joel.

Joel and Rachel, how are you doing with the plans you outlined for your trip west?

I have 2.6 acres outside of Grand Junction Colorado, and more work than I can do.

I'd like to know more about you, maybe you would want to know more about me and my place, but, geographically, I'm "west slope Colorado".

If you'd like, you can purple moosage me ( permie's private message ), and we can see where the conversation takes us.

looking forward to hearing from you
