My name is Jo, I’m 30 and I’m looking for my people. I work in the audiobook industry and I’m fully remote. I like to match my community members with jobs they might be good at in my industry. I have raised chickens and goats, and I’m a hard worker when I have direction. Not afraid to get up on a roof or use power tools. I also make sure everyone is fed and happy, and I have some mad cooking skills.
Let me tell you about my family.
My partner Trevor is 40, and a jack of all trades. When I say the guy can build or problem-solve anything, I mean it. He has lived off-grid many times and is yearning for a lifestyle where he is useful and can work to make life better for everyone involved. Engineering is his specialty, and he can weld, do blacksmithing, do leather work, farm, build any sort of structure you want, do plumbing, fix and fabricate car parts, do electrical etc. He’s a great guy to have in your corner. He’s also an avid reader and loves to share information and have interesting discussions. You will never be bored around him.
His father Fred is 65, has worked his whole life doing a wide variety of things, including building various types of homes and living off-grid. Currently he is an architectural draftsman, so if you need help figuring out how to make your home ideas work, he’s a great resource. He’s also an artist, and loves to create beautiful things. He’s got experience doing leather work, and is an avid collector of fountain pens.
Trevor’s cousin Jordan comes with the package as well. He’s 31, and is a great set of hands if you’ve got a project you need help with. He keeps to himself and doesn’t require much.
I have two kids, 8 and 10, so finding community that has other kids or are kid friendly is important to me.
Everyone in the family is well-read and has many intellectual passions. We like to nerd out and have discussions and are always learning new things. Some of our favorite topics are monolithic structures, Tolkien, building things with natural materials that are strong and will last, ancient social structures, and the list goes on and on.
I currently live in Eugene, Oregon, and the lack of actual community and ability to live in a way that is removed from towns and is unrestricted by the government is killing me and I’m ready to do something wildly different. We’re ready to find property and live in a way that is sustainable, so if/when the world falls apart, we will be just fine. If we sound like we might fit well with you or your community, don’t hesitate to reach out. I’m looking forward to getting to know you!…
