What is the water source?  Altitude?  How far from the nearest gas station?

Water source is significant runoff or the multiple wells. Well water is excellent here. There is at least one working windmill on a well that I know of. We are at the top of a watershed and this area is the start of the rivers and streams for a lot of texas. When we bought our land it was during a major drought and the springs and rivers around here were great. I don't think there is a spring but I can check because there is one close by. There may be a seasonal creek running through. I'll have to check on the number of ponds. I haven't seen 100% of the property at the back but I can check it out and deliver the details if there is someone very serious about it. We are close friends with the neighbor who is selling it.

Altitude is approx. 1400'-1500', maybe closer to 1400'. I can probably get exact details on that if need be. Great views. Clear air. Again a super nice area of texas and this huge ranch.

Nearest gas station is maybe 14 or so miles. Which is in the nearest town. A couple larger towns are maybe 30 mins. away for major shopping or markets. It's tucked away in the country but not too far from markets if you choose to go there. One of the most scenic drives in texas is what you would drive to get to town.

are mineral rights included in sale of property,

I can ask. Generally all mineral rights in this area are always transferred when the owner has them. Also this area has no oil and gas drilling.
Who is looking for pristine land in the beautiful Texas hill country with little to no unnatural e.m.f.?! No power lines. No cell towers close. Neighbor would be me (permaculture offgrid) and a few large ranch properties. Great neighbors. Perfect for your offgrid, permaculture paradise. A little under 125 acres. Not on market yet. I wanna find a good offgrid conscious buyer if I can. Seller is planning, as of now, on asking something like 20,000 per acre. He is willing to owner finance though. It's super top shelf land with tons of potential. Great water, nice slope. Let me know if you have questions or are interested. THANKS!
Hey! I hope everyone is well and having a good day. I thought I'd remind people of this project and share a bonus trailer. You can check out the website (link at bottom of first post) for more info. on updates and ways to donate.  
This may be helpful. James Prigioni made a recent video about fermenting and saving seeds.

Wow, correct me if I am wrong, I am getting the idea that you have a lot of land since you said 400 acres is not a lot. With that much it may be hard to survey it everyday to keep people out. Where I am, people develop a relationship with their yearly hunters and lease or rent out the space sometimes in exchange for upkeep including feeding the deer. They make A LOT of money doing this too. I was surprised when you mentioned this was all for free. I would definitely start charging and put out ads or start networking for good respectful hunters. I suggest you lay down the law,so to speak, when you make a deal and set the ground rules for being invited onto your property. Making very clear who owns the property and where they are allowed to go, especially since all those incidents you listed. I would make sure to keep the power to kick them off whenever you want if they break any rule or agreement.

Not sure if anyone has seen this yet. This is a permaculture documentary currently being made called "Permaculture The Documentary".
There are updates on this youtube channel DogsGoWoof Productions
From what I have seen it looks pretty good. You can donate and find more info. through the link at the bottom. They are going to release it for free to reach the most people.
Here is a description and example of part of the film.

This short film is part of a bigger film being produced Permaculture The Documentary, produced by Dogs Go Woof Productions. This is a first reveal of the footage that has been shot with David Holmgren as he recounts how a chance meeting with Bill Mollison sprouted the idea of Permaculture; where it all started. The next chapter is to shoot Bill's story in Tasmania, where Permaculture began and discover how this simple idea evolved into the most sustainable design system that reconnects human culture with nature in an evolving world.

For information on donating or the film please visit:

Wow this is really awesome! I am currently working on a hugel spiral bed. Your list and layout of plants is really helpful. Plus the updates and feedback of how well they are doing. It looks great!

Like others have said probably getting to the cause(s), if possible, would be ideal. I don't really have asthma but sometimes I get triggered by something and have a harder time breathing than usual. I usually use a filter and essential oils or Allertrex.

Allertrex 1 fl oz (29.6ml)
Lung Support Formula! AllerTrex™ is the only lung support product on the market which uses a Spagyrex™ processed blend of powerful herbs and essential oils that support normal function of the lungs, sinuses and respiratory tract.
It is a natural procedure designed to refresh the delicate respiratory linings of the bronchial passages and lungs by purging them of built up toxins, tar from cigarette smoke, environmental toxins, harmful organisms and accumulated allergens. This should be done on a regular basis due to the declining quality of indoor and outdoor air. The toxic air we breathe puts all of our lungs and respiratory tracts in danger. By using an all natural lung support spray on a regular basis you can assist your lungs in cleansing these compounds, which in turn will support normal respiratory function.

You could probably get all or some of these ingredients to make your own remedy.

I encourage you to look into the laws surrounding the post office. It was covered a bit in the above video. Basically, the way I understand it, a corporation swallowed this service up and is now charging anything it wants. However they do so with the post office still within their system. Therefor the laws regarding sending simple letters and postcards still applies. I think the confusion may be the multiple layers of corporate or legal rulings and the original law and the mixing of the two.
