Greetings to Permie members from Mudgeon (short for Curmudgeon). I'm new to the forum, although I've haunted a few similar forums on and off (mostly off) over the years. Younger members are welcome to consider me an "ol fart", to borrow a once-popular phrase. At any rate, I'm chronologically a "Senior" (single male), although my way of life, and spirit don't match the moniker, and physically speaking I'm behind the curve (aging).... in at least some respects. To be honest, I'm new to the official term "Permie", so I'm evaluating my habits and desires to see if I truly qualify. In fact, I may have been a Permie for many years, without knowing it. Anyway, I'm hoping to meetup online with some interesting souls in my area (Kansas/MO/OK border areas) with whom I can share some quality rants, and whatever else might follow. I should add that I'm not against swapping text with people from other areas/countries as well, having lived overseas for years. I've been totally rebuilding an old, rural hovel for several years, but I now find that buying it was a bad compromise, and I may be raising Daisies before I finish this huge task. So, I'm ready to re-adapt to new/better ways..... more akin to those of a true Permie, as near as I can tell. I'm not necessarily looking for a "relationship" in the conventional sense. Maybe I'm just burned out on interacting with the "conventional" population (?)- LOL- If fate is kind (rarely is for me, it seems), I may be relocating to another rural area soon (probably Ozarks), so we might have useful insights (and lies? LOL) to share. Anyway, greetings! Looking forward to sharing rants with others whose situation may resemble mine. Warning! I'm NOT afraid of penning long emails, so be forewarned. LOL
Hi where are you now?
I live in California, reading up on drought trees and think of getting some cheap land in the desert, summers 103 and winters sometimes 0 but no snow. Looking for people to come and permie with meabout 12. I lived this way before in a motorhome with my then husband and teen son on 3 acres with 12 - 15 others. We were also adjacent to NAtional forestand were parked in the middle of our garden area which was a dumpsite we cleaned up. I still gardenthere with a friend who gardens everyday. I live 2 miles away and do mostly the nursery and propagate while he is more in buiding and landscaping( transforming the junkyard into a park like garden.
But we have not much say so, would like to live on my garden/ foodforest. So looking for my own land with likeminded permies and sharing, collaborate and solve problems together and having fun.
