Could you elaborate on what you need help with, and perhaps what the 3 or 4 things are?

By skip are you referring to Paul's SKIP book and program?

If that's the case you may be interested in the PEP forums.

(I believe I used the keywords that make those auto-magically link to the threads mentioned.)

Hi Walter, welcome to the forum!

Have you seen this thread:

https://permies.com/t/189553/experiences/Land-exchange#1731448

The Skills to Inherit Land forum might be of interest.

As L Johnson mentioned the PEP: Permaculture Experience according to Paul. A more formal approach to learning homesteading and permaculture:

Also, you might find our Experiences Forum helpful.

Especially these:

Hello Walter, Welcome to Permies!
Like L Johnson, I am unclear as to what you're asking, but usually someone here can help.
Some suggested directions can be found in the similar threads, which should show below.

SKIP= SKills to Inherit Property. Is Paul's overarching term for a way for people to SKIP the rat race and start homesteading and permaculture sooner.

Also I found these really great threads (amongst many others!) on starting out:
On why?

Welcome:
We may be able to help you connect more locally if you compleat your profile.  Click on your name and it takes you to your profile where you can fill in the the information that appears under your name with each post as you can see beside this post.  
Although I am in the Cascadia area it is quite large and there may be some experts much closer.
If you post with your location and the 3 or 4 skills you want to develop It may be possible to match you with someone like me. I am in my 83rd year and not getting all the things done that make this farm productive.
