Hello, my name is Jay, my wife of 14 years is Dawn. We are going off the grid in February 2019. We've got close to 6 acres of raw land in Tennessee, it will be completely off the grid, other than myself having a job to pay for the land.
We are a caring, fun loving polyamorous couple. We're honest, hard working, creative, resourceful, and we're just fun to be around. We love learning new skills and building on our old ones. We're fun to be around, we drink a little bit on occasion and are 420 friendly, but we're not "partiers" .
We are brand new to off grid life, though we did spend a year in a gutted camper that was off the grid. Just so you know, we are starting from scratch. Our land has nothing on it, we are going to start out in a small utility shed and we're going to build up from there.
I have so many plans for our land, and have been researching off grid life ever since we decided to make the move. I am confident in our ability to make this successful, and we would like to find someone special to share the experience with. We truly are opening up a brand new chapter in our lives.
We would love to meet like-minded single females for a long-term relationship. We'd like to meet bi-sexual females 28-45 years old, honest, goal oriented, down to earth, not afraid to get her hand dirty. Must love animals, especially dogs (we have a small pack lol), and we plan to have plenty of barnyard aninals. Size,and race does not make a difference to us.
If any of this sounds interesting to you, please send us a message, we love meeting new people, even just to make friends. Thank you so much for reading all of this. Hope to hear from you.
hello there Jay and Dawn! Congrats on acquiring your homestead! East Tennessee is quite beautiful, one of my favorite places.
I am 45 (I had to stop and do the math!) Female, long, long time divorced. I have two grown children, one of whom has children of his own and the other is taking a gap year (I hope) and then she's off to grad school.
I currently reside in North Alabama, sharing my life with my mother, two canine furbabies, and my F-150. I love to drive. I'm a homebody, mostly, but road trips are key to my sanity.
I have a lot of interest in homesteading. What sort of house are you planning? I love the Earthships, but I find I have some questions about them that no one seems to know the answers to. (They're built in all sorts of places: deserts and tropics and in the north where it snows a lot of the year. Not so much in the temperate zones which have significant humidity and the day/night temperatures don't severely fluctuate. Also termites and mosquitos.) I've also looked at yurts, barn conversions, earthbag construction, grain bin conversions, and quonsets. I've found the last two the most promising, as they can be constructed quickly and over time be repurposed.
Of course, I was mostly looking at things that I could do myself or have done for me, being without a tribe, so to speak.
Let's see, livestock: I have opinions. I don't have a lot of hands on experience, but I've grown up listening to my kinfolk talking about their experiences with livestock and farming. Therefore! I probably know just enough to be difficult in one way or another. I am sort of diving into the topic via youtube and books, and, of course, here. So many opinions and different techniques. I've actually been leaning more towards aquaculture things with an outdoor garden and a greenhouse as a plan, with just enough cattle to put up for myself and sell to offset other costs. I've also been investigating a local business that runs goats, for cheese and meat.
And now I've gone and rambled on forever, so I should probably wrap this up. I hope to hear from you!
