We are two retired professionals actively seeking a couple (preferred) or an established single (considered), who are/is paying attention to geopolitics, climate disruption, and the collapse of industrial civ, and yearning to be free of the “matrix” to share our homestead.

We are offering a nice place to live, a wealth of practical experience, knowledge and skills in a diversity of fields, a non-partisan, big-picture, Nature-based lifestyle out of sync with the system, and a shared ownership in our established 3-acre rural homestead on the beautiful coast of the Pacific Northwest, where our goal has been to become self-sufficient and resilient.

Once a traditional country estate, our property is now fully equipped with solar PV & thermal, a wind turbine, rain water catchment & well water, wood heat, a producing orchard, wood lot & forest, fenced pasture, large vegetable garden, greenhouses, poultry and dairy goats, horse, and bees. A recently-built barn with a nicely appointed loft compliments the original large Tudor house on a hilltop with a scenic view of the river.

We seek partners who are healthy, physically fit (able to help with strenuous physical work for several hours), mature and free of addictions (including "smart" phones & commercial TV), and non-smoking. No recreational drugs, minimal alcohol, have prior experience with--or willing and able to learn and adopt--a simple, self-reliant lifestyle, capable of making a long-term commitment, willing to merge your resources with ours, without dependent children, educated (knowledge of Deep Ecology and Permaculture principles a plus), passionate about learning (academic as well as hands-on), and aware that life on Earth is now most likely measured in years rather than decades.

It’s a very good place to face whatever comes next. If you’re looking for such a place to share with like-minded folks, we’re looking for you. We are grateful to all who consider our offer and respond. To respect (and save) both your time and ours, we will reply only to inquiries which seem to align with our path. Thank you.

Is that Youngs River Loop? Its hard to tell if your on the Youngs River Loop side, or out HWY 202, as I'm guessing thats Youngs River in the view of your posted picture. Your property is definitely beautiful, and your a wise enough couple to be prepared for what science concurs is inevitable. I'm not sure my Fiancee and I, would be the fit you're looking for ; however, I thought it maybe worth looking into.

If you want to chat more, let me know.
