Homesteading is Possible

Recommended Posts

LOL I was thinking something similar, JCMS, although mine is more "east of the Rockies." I'm always disappointed that there are no missile silos for sale around here; there is one just waiting to be fixed up in Kansas right now that's for sale on eBay:

The thing is, I can't imagine wanting to live in Kansas. Ever. Cool BOL or not, free land from a homestead act or not.

My biggest concern would be 'how do I make a living in that small town rural area?' if I took one of the parcels. Gotta have positive cash flow, somehow.

 

that is correct,unless you have a ss,pension coming in,jobs will be limited in those towns.

For those of us who are married, my plan is to get eventually some land and go as "self sufficient" as possible. But like mentioned above you do need a positive cash flow. So my wife already has a teaching degree but she is also working on her medical transcription certification as well. Our agreement was that I would work the land and she would have a job to bring in the much smaller than once needed cash flow. With those two job fields to choose from she should be able to get a job in even the smallest of towns and rural areas. Plus going with solar panels and wind mills will also reduce the cost of living tremendously.

    • This is a great inspiring article. I am pretty much pleased with your good work. You put really very helpful information.

    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
