I am a 29 year old fellow from the hills of eastern Kentucky. In 4 weeks I get to return home, as I have been working/living out of the area for 6 months, and finally start my dream of homesteading. I have 56 acres of land in the hills where I am going to build a cabin, start gardening, and slowly begin the process of being self-sustaining.
I am not an environmentalist or anything like that, just somebody who prefers a quieter, simpler life. My goals with being self-sufficient are to be off-grid where I have no utility bills and as little outside expenses as possible. Also I'm not a religious person, so I am looking for someone who isn't overly so themselves.
My aging father retired recently and will take part in the process with me and live on the land. He is a vast font of knowledge on homesteading and I intend to learn everything he knows while he is still around. And eventually I intend to take care of him when he can no longer do so himself.
There is far too much for me to say here, but that I am looking for someone who wants to lvie a simple homesteading life, homeschool the children we would have together, and worry more about family and friends instead of about spending money and having material things.
Age isn't so much an issue except to keep in mind I intend to start a family with someone and build a strong relationship with a special woman over our lifetime.
Anyway, that's about all I know right now.
