Millions of people are blocked from homesteading because of the sheer expense of getting started. And millions of elderly people are frustrated that they cannot find somebody worthy to pass their homestead to. Every year hundreds of thousands of homesteads are abandoned - with the government taking possession about half the time.
Other homestead owners are looking for land managers or caretakers. Or some sort of collaboration. But their efforts have led to horrific results from dishonest or even criminal people - so their homesteads are, effectively abandoned.
People with homesteads are seeking people with REAL experience and skill.
People seeking homesteading opportunities want to build REAL experience and skill.
This book is an attempt to bridge these two communities. People seeking homesteading opportunities are provided a way to accomplish hundreds of things and document them for free. Eventually, they will be able to peruse hundreds of homestead opportunities. And people with homesteads will be able to peruse hundreds of homesteaders that have proven their worth.
Active homesteaders use SKIP to build their skills for their own benefit. The verification of their skills lends weight to their words on our forums. Some people already have land and use SKIP to build their skills for caring for their land.

This is fantastic news! It's there any chance- even remote - that some of those will be shipped out early enough for Earth Day? I'd LOVE to leave all but 1 of mine laying on tables in the library, coffee shops, etc, for folks to find, as an Earth Day surprise gift that keeps on giving.
