I'm not trying to feed myself of land for at least a few decades when the land has enough humus, windbreaks, water harvesting ect to do a sort of greening the desert type scenario.

Don't think you can just drill a well because in most areas it's a mile to water.
Hauling water is totally impractical if your trying to grow enough to eat and live on.
so what use the 5k to buy an acre or two, and just car camp until i get a job? can i build 10'x10' shack to sleep in between July and winter?
