Hey that I mad cool I'm most stoked about how you are building a log cabin that's what I've wanted to do for like 2 years!

I am 29 yrs old, 7 yrs of travelling under my belt. I have been camping in the cold near Baltimore getting my gear together for a new trip.
I'll be rolling with a pack, a tent, a mummy sack, an army blanket, an army parka, and some hoodies with my Walmart tims on.

I'm leaving VERY soon. The plan is mostly to hitchhike south and try to stop at any cool farms or communities where I can build stuff and camp out for a while.
KY is a very possible destination once I do Baltimore - Richmond.

I will try to keep in touch w/ you.
email me darrej01@gmail.com

also I am trying to blog about what I'm doing.

Hi steve. I'm interested in this opportunity for sure. 29/M. I'm on the move currently and making a documentary about it. So far I have gone Philly -> Baltimore. NC isnt too much further considering, and asheville has been on the list for destinations anyways. (I have been there before) anyways my email is darrej01@gmail.com if you could message me we can work out more details thank you.

A thanks to everyone who has responded so far. I have let this topic slip for a little. While. An updae on me : no longer in western PA, now in EASTERN PA, basing out of lancaster for now. Still on the hunt for this opportunity. To the reply about maine. Yes i would consider that, however the trip that far north of here seems unlikely. btw i do have a good drivers license but i do not have a car. Also i recieved an email personally from someone who is in southern virginia with a similar situation, lots of land to live on and needing volunteers. I am much more likely to head south because of easier seasons and also making destinations such as asheville nc more viable. For now i have gotten as far as Lancaster, PA which puts me somewhat closer to the southern freight lines too. Please come at me with more ideas thank you very much!

Wsup. wandering for about 5 years total. Spent most time focusing on art or returning home to family members. Original purpose of my voyage was to find a good community where i could live a simple life off the land and be productive. And I still haven't found the right place. Now I'm back in the area where I grew up, Pittsburgh PA. Waiting for the weather to turn nice before I put some time in travelling. I'm going to be jumping over to the appalacians and then dropping down through WV possibly going as far as NC. I'm hoping to find a community or home in the Mountains, or anywhere for that matter. Is there anyone out there with some land where I can camp and possibly raise up my own log cabin / home and help with community projects??? I'm very interested in construction and would like to make an elaborate house using stone and timber construction. Age: 28 . white male name is John. if interested or have any info I can be reached at email: darrej01@gmail.com.

By the way. regardless of responses I get or other avenues. I'll be completing camps hand built in the mountains as I go and documenting my progress online. So stay tuned for that.
