will be raising Karakul sheep, chickens, other assorted animals -
need someone with building cabin know-how, hand dug well, totally off-the-grid-!
but i have put this off for sometime -
this most certainly will be roughing it
100% self-sufficient!!! WARNING: NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART!

Richmond, TX

How cool, an island! Best of luck.

So.App.Mtns., United States(Zone 5b)

What is the size of your island?

almost 300 acres

So.App.Mtns., United States(Zone 5b)

Sounds like quite an adventure!

I hope you can find someone stalwart and trustworthy to share it. Have anyone vetted carefully!

Efland, NC(Zone 7a)

What a great adventure, obeliskone.

I wonder if you should take on more than one partner though, maybe some apprentices who would trade labor for room and board.

darius, will your truck get us there?


So.App.Mtns., United States(Zone 5b)

Sure, Shoe... and carry all our tools and belongings as well, but only to the dock!

Efland, NC(Zone 7a)

Hah. Darn. Well, we'd probably need that truck on the island. I wonder how to get it over there.

Sounds exciting though, eh?

If I had my way, obeliskone, I'd come up there several months out of each year. I wonder how many others would be interested in that. It would certainly help you get started.


Biggs, KY(Zone 6a)

Are there any predators already on the island?

maple ridge, Canada

hey Obeliskone, hows your search for a homesteader going.? Let me know.., I can build almost anything, am presently a renovating contractor and I am tough as nails....having worked as a logger and fisherman for a number of years.

My name is Richard McCulloch and I can be contacted at 778-384-1834 or via [email protected]

Everglades, FL(Zone 10a)

Geeze- if anyone can make it, Darius can!

So.App.Mtns., United States(Zone 5b)

Nope, Carol... it's not my cup of tea! Maybe if I were 40 years younger...
