Hello again Permies,
I have met a few wonderful people from this posting some of which I continue to be in contact with and several visitors. So since it has been two years since my last picture and ideal update I thought I might 'resolve' my last post (since there is no way to delete or edit it?) and dawn a new view.
My name is Jay, I live in Kansas where I have been slowly (frugally) constructing my ideal space on a single acre four miles outside of town since October of 2011. Too date the list of accomplishments is great, a few being a 7 spoked wagon-wheel-paddock style chicken system with companion tractor and fenced garden for winter grazing, a small but useful 240v solar backup, large earth sculpturing/woody beds/catchment etc, maturing soil conditions, polycultured and compounding, annual wild crafting, and plenty of grunts, moans, and stiff muscles.
Next up is a new water well and water tower, and a solar dehydrator amongst others.
The home here is a 1000sqft standard home, minus the clothes dryer, microwave, TV, and central heat/air. I participate in “modern” homesteading with my meaning essentially being “technology is good, just not always better.”
With that said, the hippie in me is only a small aspect; I am a metal head, cowboy, artist/creator, philosopher, lover, humanitarian, warrior for the down trodden, and a farmer. I am Not a pacifist, a traveler, rich, have rich parents, famous, or capable of leaving where I live - due to my daughters ages, 8 and 12 - to go live in a hut or wonder through the woods for months on end.
I am indeed looking for a companion in life here at Permies, a 'woman' companion. Fellas, please give a friendly hi, but I'm just not there brother, so not to friendly now... She will understand the need to participate ethically in the economy while seeing a better way. She will be capable of passion, not passive or hiding from emotions, and she will be a woman smaller than me. I rarely weigh more than 140-5'/10'. She will appreciate many concepts in line with permaculture obviously, also meritocracy, resource based ideology and transitions, spiritual not religious direction, introversion, and a distaste for undeserved handouts.
To contact me is easy, do it right here on this post, a private message, or email@example.com
. Just include Permies Singles in the subject line.
There should be plenty of questions, because I barely said anything here.
I will include some updated pictures below of the farm and I if i can figure this site out again.
I do not really participate in this site other than gulping free information, and of course here on the singles page. I have my reasons, but let it be known to the team: Thank you Permies and Paul, and your dailyish email is great as well! Someday I hope to buy something, in the mean time know you are appreciated.
