You seem to be on the right track. And are quite attractive. Question; how do you feel about Trump? Sadly that one question will be relevant to many in these days. I am 51. I have helped raise 2 sons,and miss that aspect of life. I do eat meat and (lol) have cell service. I am currently located 45 minutes from Boise Idaho.and I would love to talk with you if you are interested.
As co-workers/neighbors in a intentional community, I don't think that religion or politics matter too much but as partner, it is more than likely that it will matter a lot more.
Every state allows us to live off-grid, but in addition to state/federal regulations there are also county and city regulations. If you are inside city limits they are more likely to require that you are on the grid. If you try to get a mortgage/loan to buy/build a house in the city they might require that you are on the grid. There are even neighborhood regulations (HOA) that will limit what color curtain you can have inside your house. But as a rule of thumb if you have 5+ acres of land you will most likely be able to live off-grid, you will mostly have to get an inspected septic system, and you will be encourage/required to build your house safely, either by having a county official compare it to their book on file or having an engineer design/sign off on it.
I'm new to this website and I'm trying to reach out to like minded people as well. I'm 26 and have been living or I should say practicing self sufficiency and self relicancy as a woodsman for about 2 years now. Always up for conversation

Hi Leia - Sounds like you and I are in similar situations. I'm ready to unplug and build a self sustaining lifestyle. Please PM me, I'd love to chat more. Jason
Hi Leia, I too am looking for a partner to begin this journey with. I am in Northwest Georgia and just recently purchased 11 acres with a creek and river frontage. I have so many ideas of how I would like to see all of this come together but I know the journey would be even better with someone. Give me a shout if you would like to meet up and see how compatable we may be. 770-threeSeven5-Zero3nineSeven
Hi! I'm also a single mom. My son is 10 and we live between summit county co and jefferson county colorado. When I got pregnant I thought there ought to be intentional communities for single moms who want community. Yeah finding a lover and soulmate would be nice too but that's more difficult than a dependable friendship, right?!
Anyway, I have a friend starting her permie design in Bedrock colorado close to Moab. She's the only contact I have in the west who is starting our dream. I keep looking for land, and I'll eventually find it but meanwhile I'm raising my son in a Montessori School in golden and pursuing my licenses as a pilot so I can have an off-grid house anywhere especially once airplanes become electric.
My plan is to save money until I find enough good land and get my son through childhood and off to college (and always invite him back haha!) and then tend land, teach flying, and network with ecovillages for the rest of my life.
