So, here's where I'm at.
I am super new to this site as well as to anything related to permaculture.
I'm not even sure I want to be completely immersed in the culture, but I am willing to learn what interests me, benefits me, and that I know I am capable of doing.
I am a very handy and fairly skilled guy, but I know that I would rather build something then to dig in the dirt.
Yet, I am not a carpenter.
As well, I was not raised in the city, but not on a farm either.
I have been through pure hell in the last 3 years and I'm quite tired...both literally and figuratively.
I have lost everything...my 13 year relationship, damn near everything I own, my savings, and even a few people whom I thought were friends.
I was living in the PNW and now I am back in the Midwest. I am not sure that this is where I want to plant myself, but at 53, as of Halloween, I need to figure that out I guess. I am, for all intents and purposes, homeless.
Meaning, I do not currently have my own place.
I am staying with a relative until I can replenish my savings. I have looked into buying a pre-fab cabin to finish. I look almost daily at available properties in the Ozarks, namely SW Mo and NW/Central Ark.
I'd love nothing but fully wooded, live water, preferably a river, or very large creek that leads to a river.
I love snow, so I'm not concerned about it.
I own a classic 4x4 pickup, but may have to sell it in order to have money. (Why is there always some crappy catch-22 situation? Lol )
I'm also single, gay, monogomous, and there's more, but I'll reserve that for a most interested guy. 😉
I would love to find someone, or some persons, interested in purchasing some property together.
Preferrably some other guys that are gay and masculine and versed in living off-grid, semi off-grid, permies, or maybe they're like me and just want to live away from idiots and light pollution.
I am also interested in mining for gold and gems and that would require some travelling as there isn't much to be found in this area of the country and would love to find someone who is also interested in that.
I have found a few very nice pieces of property that are low money down and very easy payments.
So, if anyone is interested in possibly purchasing something together then just drop me a line and let's chat.
So, my short novel comes down to that.
Thank you for reading.
I hope to hear from many.

You may want to check out tiny houses and look at the pre-fab buildings widely available many places as rent-to-owns. Look for a place like http://www.metrobuildingoutlet.com/ up your way. They sometimes have great deals on buildings that get turned back to them. Some have plumbing and electrical or have been finished inside (or you can do that yourself).
