    Ok Hello everyone, First I would like to say that I am pleased to meet all of you and I am thankful that my eyes can see and my ears can hear. I have been doing some research for a couple of years trying to find out how to live somewhat off the grid and get out of a mortgage. For the last 2 to 3 years I have been growing some veggies and learning about soil. I have also been learning about alternative housing techniques such as earthbag homes and air crete domes. I am a veteran who is looking to get out of the rat race but need direction. I would like to share some land with someone who is a homesteader or a group of like minded people who also have faith. Currently I am located in GA in the suburbs but as I look around my so called community I do not see anyone planting anything in their huge backyards that we all have except me. I would like to be around people who do the same thing I am doing which is learning how to grow their own food. I am a little older now and see exactly what is going on around the world. Food prices are going up, housing is going up and the only way we are going to make it is together! To be a lone wolf is not a good idea. It seem good at the moment but you cannot be up 24 hrs everyday to watch your property, family and or goods. To live on a working farm that preps and is learning about alternative ways of living and keeping warm would be ideal. I love wood stoves and want to learn even more. My family cannot see what is going on in the world and maybe they don’t want to. I don’t know why I like the northern mountains but i think elevation above sea level would be better than flat plains in the coming years from flood areas. I am looking to downsize now and just need to be with people who think the way i do.
