perhaps a good source of potential permies?

Well I'm working on it -  just not yet to the point where I can leave my day job. Hopefully in a year or two my homestead business will get up and running and I hope two to three years after that I will be able to leave my day job behind! So If all goes well 3 to 5 years from now I will be in my mid to late 30s and self employed working from my land. At least that is the dream!

Grateful to be 24 and out of the work-force to homestead (with the help of a super supportive partner). :) Glad to hear there's more and more of us out there.

I'm going to build a sauna trailer and document the entire process in video and ebook form!
