Hello again Permies,

I have met a few wonderful people from this posting some of which I continue to be in contact with and several visitors. So since it has been two years since my last picture and ideal update I thought I might 'resolve' my last post (since there is no way to delete or edit it?) and dawn a new view.

My name is Jay, I live in Kansas where I have been slowly (frugally) constructing my ideal space on a single acre four miles outside of town since October of 2011. Too date the list of accomplishments is great, a few being a 7 spoked wagon-wheel-paddock style chicken system with companion tractor and fenced garden for winter grazing, a small but useful 240v solar backup, large earth sculpturing/woody beds/catchment etc, maturing soil conditions, polycultured and compounding, annual wild crafting, and plenty of grunts, moans, and stiff muscles.

Next up is a new water well and water tower, and a solar dehydrator amongst others.

The home here is a 1000sqft standard home, minus the clothes dryer, microwave, TV, and central heat/air. I participate in “modern” homesteading with my meaning essentially being “technology is good, just not always better.”

With that said, the hippie in me is only a small aspect; I am a metal head, cowboy, artist/creator, philosopher, lover, humanitarian, warrior for the down trodden, and a farmer. I am Not a pacifist, a traveler, rich, have rich parents, famous, or capable of leaving where I live - due to my daughters ages, 8 and 12 - to go live in a hut or wonder through the woods for months on end.

I am indeed looking for a companion in life here at Permies, a 'woman' companion. Fellas, please give a friendly hi, but I'm just not there brother, so not to friendly now... She will understand the need to participate ethically in the economy while seeing a better way. She will be capable of passion, not passive or hiding from emotions, and she will be a woman smaller than me. I rarely weigh more than 140-5'/10'. She will appreciate many concepts in line with permaculture obviously, also meritocracy, resource based ideology and transitions, spiritual not religious direction, introversion, and a distaste for undeserved handouts.

To contact me is easy, do it right here on this post, a private message, or mor4humanity@live.com. Just include Permies Singles in the subject line.

There should be plenty of questions, because I barely said anything here.

I will include some updated pictures below of the farm and I if i can figure this site out again.


I do not really participate in this site other than gulping free information, and of course here on the singles page. I have my reasons, but let it be known to the team: Thank you Permies and Paul, and your dailyish email is great as well! Someday I hope to buy something, in the mean time know you are appreciated.

And this would be me, myself, and my character painted with polk weed berries. Spirals also tend to show up on things around here?
