Well, I've been sifting the dregs of the market for a home on land. I keep coming up a bit short on the more workable properties and even those less so. I sometimes am able to buy something that will take more work than I can afford up front.

So I'm looking for opportunities to go on someone else's homestead venture or IC, if there are any situations out there where I can put in for a couple acres with I hope at least something like a barn on them. I could put in up to 70 for my share, less if I need to get services into the place. I'd have tried this route before, but it's so potentially complicated I've put it off to this point. But it's also potentially a better situation to join a group in this orbit. One thing holding me back is I just haven't been able to put in the work on developing the skillset for this past a basic understanding and minimal experience so I'm not a big plus for a closely cohesive group, but if I can go in for a plot that doesn't need intensive teamwork (I know everything on a property will interrelate and would commit to communicate and cooperate as much as is it did take) or if someone I came up with could stand in for me on things I'm not the best for doing maybe that wouldn''t be too much of a problem.

If I don't find anything like that soon I might fall back on one or another long-term project properties that need more than I can put in at once--they might though offer opportunities for other WOOFer types while I tried to get them in shape. I work full-time-plus, so I realize I'll need to plan carefully how I phase myself into anything.

Thanks for any ideas out there!
