I will soon arrive in Bellingham, Wa area the first week in January. I will be alone without knowledge beyond what I find here on-line. Friendship is something I hope to gain before I arrive. I am pursuing my dream of learning about self sustaining living. I will be starting from scratch. Most of the things I've learned is from videos and websites. I am ready to get my hands dirty.

About me:
I am a 33 year old male born and raised in Boston. "yes, I still have the accent!" I am a free spirited open minded person. I come from a big loving family. Many children in my family. I am the only one without. Maybe someday.

I am making huge life changes when I arrive. First off I'm going to become a vegan. Every study I've learned, every friend I've had and every story I've read all show the best results of being healthy. I will be a non smoker but will find nicotine in other forms till I am off the addictive habits of being a smoker. Probably going to use the gum. Excersize will be something I will find in everyday activities like bike riding and doing hard work and hopefully I will be working on personal projects or helping others with their self-sustaining living. I love learning and creating.

I will not have a place to live when I arrive but that is one of my first fresh starting goals. This should not concern you or keep you from making friends with me. I promise I won't ask to sleep on your couch!

What I am looking for:
Open minded thinkers with similar or understanding attitudes to some or all I've said in my bio. In a physical love like relationship I like woman close in age mid 20s to mid 30s But with friendship I do not have a preference of sex,race or age. I would love to chat hear stories learn from you and be able to show you what's good about me. Sharing is caring like my sisters says!

I am looking for someone who needs help running their homestead or permaculture. I am searching for something in the Northern Washington area around bellingham. I am offering my hard work, great attitude and good heart. In exchange I would like a place to rest my head and food. I am a laymen and will need to be taught most things. Being taught really is my main goal. But helping you is just as rewarding. I am willing to go the extra mile if need be. I am currently living in southern New Hampshire. I will be arriving the first week in January, either in Seattle or Bellingham by train. I am very low maintenance and would not need much to please. Currently I do not have the money to rent a place but will have the hard work to offer. I also have cooking experience. I am not a chef but I can prevent myself from burning the food myself or the kitchen! Please contact me if you are interested or know of someone who is and pass this posting along. Oh by the way I am a 33 year old male, single without children. I do not do hard drugs or have a criminal record. Thanks much!

Hi Caleb,
I too seek the same adventure. I am currently in New Hampshire and I am going to sell my jeep and camper and head out to the great northwest. With my back pack full and my shoes tied tight.I will find what I want. I have an unbelievable urge to learn and live a self sustaining lifestyle. It's beautiful out here in the northeast but the northwest has the best wet seasons around. I know it will work out. Best advice I have is don't sit at home wanting it, get out there and do it! I promised my mom i would stay for the holidays. But after Christmas, I'm out the door and on my way! You should be too.

I have had the same feelings as you about most of the communities out there. I want a place I can live and work to better myself and the people around by doing all the basics needed to live a self sustaining life. I want to focus all my mind body and soul on the actual lifestyle and not conform to a group with a certain belief . I still want to go online and download music but I want to create my own power to charge the laptop. I still like buying and selling off eBay and I would like to have a candy bar without feeling like its wrong. I understand everyone has their own beliefs and lifestyles and will never go against them. Which is why I'm having trouble getting to a community that fits my way of life. Your down to earth project sounds great. Hopefully it will all begin sooner then later for you. If so I'm interested in a work and live in position if you have it available. I can pitch a tent if I have to! I am here to talk and share ideas feel free to message me.

Best of luck

Thanks Olivier , maybe I should look for some community events or classes in the New England area. I am glad there are people out there with these interests. As a newbie to permaculture and self sustaining living, I hope to find people sooner then later - cause I am getting restless!
I can only watch so many videos and read so many books with out getting my hands dirty.

i agree fully with Shawn.

a wind turbine now that you see along side the highways already cost over a half million dollars. now that it will produce water it will be more.

the video shown on the site gives good ideas of how its made and will get lots of low budget diy designers to make a version all there own from scraps and hopefully they will share their designs with the common person (the 99%) so we can afford it.

I just joined permies.com today and am extremely excited about it!

I have been struggling real hard to get a start on a sustainable lifestyle without having a clue where to begin. I've been a day late and a dollar short for a long time now. I am currently playing the roll of the brother living a jeep in my sisters driveway in Southern NH.
For over 2 years now I've read, watched videos, heard stories and even imagined my own homestead living. I always seem ready to start go and be proactive about what i want to do but i end up feeling alone among the people i know and love about my ideas and fall into the trap and sadness that comes along with an electric bill a grocery bill heating and gas prices.
winter is right around the corner and am ready again to go and be happy working for a better life. I know homesteading is extremely hard and i am aware of the risks but i want the hard work and take the risks doing what i know is right for me. i have never dreamed of something as long as i have been about one thing in my life until i came across the idea of sustainable living. i sleep with the thoughts of it and wake with them. Its like i in love.
I know all of you who read this want to say to me " JUST GET UP AND GO!" and i will. but, i still feel alone.
What i hope to accomplish from this first posting of mine is a chance to network and get ideas where to begin when you have nothing but ideas and the dream of a new start.
thank you all for reading
- Tommy
