Hello,
I’m new here but figured I’d try. It’s hard to date when in the back of your mind you know what you truly want in life may not match with most people. They like cities and fancy things but I yearn to get back to nature and do things naturally, even if it is the hard way. I want to labor for myself and not my corporate masters.

Yes I will someday be forced to go it alone if I never meet anyone like minded. But I sure do hope he is out there! Until then I’m practicing my skills at home and soaking up all the knowledge I will need one day out there in my off-grid home.

Are you within a reasonable age of me? Age is not an issue for me unless it is over a decade apart. Then it may be a bit hard to bridge that gap. Obviously chemistry is important too. Most importantly, I need someone who can capture my mind and my heart and will not be quick to ruin something that can take a long time to grow. I am looking for the distance and want it to last.

Hope to hear from anyone even for a word or two of encouragement. Greetings from Arizona!

I'm not seeking a partner right now but I can definitely offer you those words of encouragement. I feel the same way as you, learning what I can with the goal of moving to a home I build on the slow path, my path, in tune with nature.  In the coming months, more people will come to feel that way.  So I'm confident you'll find like-minded people.  And you have amazing bunnies, what's not to love?  :)

Hi Heather, I know you think I am to old and that's OK, but if you want to talk and want to see some different land for off grid living I am only 75 miles from Arizona.

Can't help you myself as I have two partners already and don't live in Arizona, but as a fellow rabbit caregiver, I will tell you there is definitely somebody out there for you! You're gorgeous and you know what you want. I'm confident someone out there will want a woman with determination, grit, and great looks. And once you find them, then you get 2 more bunnies!!! 🐰🐰🐰🐰🐰

Wishing you luck and love from Massachusetts

Hi Heather
My name is Tom, and I am so in tune with what you have written.
I was born and raised in Germany, and I have lived in Canada now for 25 years, half of my life, and I came here with that goal in mind, to live on and from my own l land and labour.
Live came in between, I got married and she was not interested in this life style, which I found out too late. I am divorced since 2011 and my kids are pretty much grown up, therefore I am now free and ready to follow my dreams.
With this insanity going on around the world, I feel that it is already 5 past 12, and I need to make a move soon, as I feel less and less to be fitting into this society of following sheep...
I would like to hear more about you.
Sincerely,
Tom

Hello Heather,

I know what you mean- I worked corporate for many years in the IT sector, travelled the world as an IT officer for a very luxurious cruise line for several, searching, just searching...having this itch to get out of the city permanently and really find my peace... I still work in IT but for a non profit org now, at least the mission is more heartfelt.

4 years ago I finally found myself on a land up in the mountains.  Yep, got my 20 acre slice of a beautiful mountain plateau in Central WA close to the Canadian border (i live north of Seattle). It came with a small cabin that I've converted into a tiny home, but planning to build soon.  The mountains have always had an effect on me growing up- family trips to a mountain resort for a few summers, enjoying the outdoors- camping, kayaking, snow activities, just being in touch with nature.

There's a very small percentage of women that are daring enough to seek the kind of lifestyle I'm pursuing (sigh), and I don't really consider myself a hardcore homestead type of guy. I'm more of a modern homesteader- planning a sustainable lifestyle, grow veggies, have some chickens, goats to chew down pine grass, plenty of cattle ranchers around for beef, and, whatever else paints the canvas but not quite fully off grid- I do like technology.  I work hard, cut down trees and chop wood, pretty good handyman I must say, i like tinkering with my hands.  Quite a mechanic too, just rebuilt my car... sure i can buy a new one but where's the fun with tinkering there- plus the knowledge is invaluable.

I also have family in AZ- Gilbert, Chandler, Mesa... been there many times when i lived in CA before moving up here in the PNW.  Anyway, all the best with your search and if you want  to connect, just shoot me an email at reyr24@yahoo.com.

Cheers.
Rey

Hi Heather, you have a great way of thinking. I myself have been told that I was born in the wrong era. For years I thought about moving to Alaska and going off grid. My problem is that some of the things I enjoy doing require power ( welding). I am however currently working on at least trying to be somewhat self reliant. I have a small farm where I grow my own veggies, I have chickens for eggs. Next on my list is to get more chickens, qual, pheasants, then livestock. I am trying to learn about composting and getting my soil better using natural methods. I am going to visit Joel Salatin and also have been talking with Justin Rhodes here in NC. Yes I am in NC but I am interested in meeting a like minded woman than is up for the challange. I would like to talk more with you however I really am not sure with posts read by everyone. Oh and just so your wondering I am 52 years young. Yes I say young because most people can't keep up with my work ethic. I would be glad to share a pic with private conversation. What are your thoughts on children?


Jay

Hi. Hope you find what you're looking for. I myself just purchased land in southern colorado and decided why go it alone. The property is empty right now so it is going to be an adventure starting out, but my plans are made and everything should go smoothly.
That person you are looking for is out there, don't give up!
