Great post, and your advice is appreciated!

My sister and I have definitely strayed to the “<span style=”color: #000000; font-family: verdana, arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12px; line-height: normal; background-color: #fbfbfb;”>dream of leaving the money-centered society behind” scenario, but are coming around to the realization that we will need to have some cash income when we get settled into the off-the-grid life in West Texas.</span>

Currently, the property has been purchased and is completely undeveloped, so our short term goal is to get a well drilled on the property. We still reside in Washington State, so we have a decent “jumping off”  point but must ensure we have a good landing set up in Texas. Part of that will be a modest income stream, even $200-300 a month would be nice if we live frugally and smartly but all that is contingent on successful gardening and basic farming, of course.
