So I... grow up with the hippies and the hicks in the sticks; and I...
Stop, smell the ... trees, flowers, water, dirt, greenhouse, food.
I Work hard.
I Hold hands.
I Find joy in the mundane .
I practice letting go of the material.
I Practice simpliscity.
In a nutshell...
Intro done... we’ve been building ourselves up again. It’s a difficult thing to start over from scratch. We’re on the downhill side of a 10 year plan that centers around off grid, homesteading, and self sufficiency. We have been learning and growing a greater portion of our own food for a few years, including raising and butchering our own meats this year, new skills each year. It’s important, learning forgotten/ abandoned skill sets that can be passed on to the next generation. Economically it makes fiscal sense, I’ve done the grind for 25+ years, working to pay for food, and consumables. I understand the value of things; Skills, trade and barter is every bit as valuable as man hours. Of even greater value is honesty, effort, commitment, friendship and a smile.
Beyond the basics, there is a lot to our story; who we are, who we are not, how these shoes have been filled, but I’m just me and we’re just us.
I’ve been rockin the single dad gig for over a decade now. Be honest, be kind, be straightforward. Be grown up. I know what I want and what I don’t. The rest is negotiable ??
Good conversations always welcome, even if your city ??
POF, I’m a Virgo!

Who are you? What are your intentions. Why me? Can’t believe this needs to be said... Be grown up, Be real. Have manners and treat others the way you want to be treated. Please, please, please don’t waste my time, I won’t waste yours.
I have a big heart, I am nonjudgemental. I respect honesty, integerity; ie folks being straight forward. Say what you mean.
I’m not everyone’s cup of tea, why might I be yours? What self sustainable skills might you be bringing to the table? Are you a good communicator? An effort let’s me know your worth my time??
