I am a single 51 year old woman with a dog. I have spent the last two years working for small farms in the midwest.
I am in the process of building a shuttle bus into my permanent house. I haven't ever lived in Nashville but I have been through the area. If I could park my bus there and work on it when I am not helping you this may be a good, arrangement.
I have a lifetime of farming. Gardening and homesteading experience.

Sincerely,
Vicki

Thank you Brian! I am on a really bad cell tower and it took me forever just to post that. I panicked when i heard their situation. I wanted to try to get them help. She sounded so desperate but that's all I could do. If you know how to get her campaign more exposure I know she would be grateful. I am so limited in my ability to help in my present situation .
Thank you again for taking the time to help.

Dragon heaters owners have been severely affected because of the flooding in Houston. Please help them rebuild their lives.
They were hit with over 60" of rain. They have no electricity and could only get out to post this campaign.Anything any of you can do to help would be appreciated.

Maxwell Myers wrote:I wish you luck! My girlfriend and I did this for about 2 years, and found nothing but bait-and-switch scenarios where people would always act laid back and cool at first, (if anyone ever works to convince you HOW cool they are, over and over, run). and then switch to desiring either constant attention, or later informing that we would now be servants to their lordship. In fact, out of 5 people we stayed with, 4 of them never actually wanted any concrete work, (or wanted to do permaculture, or much of anything at all, it turned out), but instead fulfill their emotional needs, (either because they were lonely people needing new best friends, or petty tyrants just wanting someone to push around). Make sure you know exactly what's expected of you in terms of hours worked, or chores per week, or whatever. There has to be a defined concrete value you are agreeing to provide, and if they are wishy washy with what that is, run. They are luring you in, and by the time you're moved in and comfortable, the real terms of THEIR agreement will come out. And it won't be good.

Also, make sure they know your stance towards having to hang out and/or report to them on a dimes notice. Let them know if you are introverts, or want community. It's a hard road, and most times it won't work out. But I wish you the best! We got so emotionally exhausted by the process we decided to focus on getting our own land now. Nobody managed their land even close to wisely, in our perspective, and it never felt free to have someone lording over us. But your mileage may vary! Again, good luck!


We too have been victims of exactly what you wrote.
We just still believe their are good people that need our help. We need absolutely nothing in return. We are are offering our help in exchange for nothing but a place to park.

Any situation is an option. We are looking to help as many people as we can over the next year. Every situation is temporary. We are only looking to stay for as long as we are needed. We are not homeless or penniless. This is our version of habitat for humanity.
If you need help just ask. All situations will be acted on.
It takes a village...this is an exchange. You need help just ask.
We ask for nothing in return but a place to park our RV. We don't need anything else.
