Hi Paul, Ken and Jocelyn and whoever else joins this forum,
I said I would join a singles forum, and here I am. And I must say, this is the most complicated list I've ever seen. Maybe that's why it's called a "forum" rather than a "list" I will have to reread the directions several times before I can use all those cute smileys and other BBC stuff.
I am not in the NW part of the country, but rather in the beautiful Ozarks. I have 154 acres...and creating a Permaculture design in the yard and developing small farm activities in another 20 or so acres. Trying to make it as sustainable as possible...which to me means cycling the available nutrients and using local resources am much as possible. This place has a spring fed creek and pond, and other springs trickling out of the hills. It's got upland and bottomland, bluffs, trees and open pasture.
The PC design in the yard is going slowly, mainly because the yard is covered with Bermuda grass. Is Bermuda grass in the Pacific Northwest??? It is all over the south and mid-south. It does not till out or mulch out. I am slowly killing it with black plastic that I move and remulch with cardboard and stick mulch. I have made enough progress to stay motivated!
I have heritage turkeys, rare chickens, a few sheep, a milk cow and a few beef cows to raise and sell a few grass fed calves from...bees...lots of fruit trees and berries...and Border Collies to help with the work!
I've got some alternative energy systems in place (solar) and hopefully more to come, and also rainwater catchment systems.
The only problem is that there are too many ideas and too much potential for one person to do alone...and that is why I am looking for someone (or two or three) to share the fun. And I do mean that...it's not all work. I'm old enough to want to stop and enjoy the progress...and old enough that I can't work all day like I used to!!!
I'd better stop for now, anyone interested can ask more questions.
Besides, I have to go feed the fire...we are renaming this area....SIBERIA. we are bracing for a 100 year cold system that is almost here. Usually even the winters are relatively pleasant! (I can graze animals all year)
I am ... in the beautiful Ozarks.
No wonder so few have participated.

Permies are a different sort. A commonality is an intense streak of independence. Using a matchmaking site would go against the grain of some. Perhaps you could explain to the good people what a "legitimate" post would consist of?
Paul, should we switch this conversation over to the social lounge?
fonts and message board is really tiny here can hardly read it......

Start by male and then female. I do NOT need to read what the females are looking for.
Call me crazy, but divided by region would be nice as well. I personally will not move to a cold area and I'd bet there are many who wouldn't want to leave the geographical area they are now in - maybe because of their kids or aging parents.
