    Hey everyone, started looking at some of the posts here 4 hrs ago and still impressed and absorbed with all the info you guys have accumulated! I'm aiming for self sufficient living in the next 5 years but have lots to learn. Any advice is appreciated.

    My plan is to find a small enough piece of land to be able to handle alone but still have enough room to provide enough food for myself. I have spent three years getting myself debt free and set up with a truck and rv. Now saving for land. I have played around with aquaponics and think it might work for me pretty good but still have lots to learn there.

    I don't know enough to share much, and I'm kinda quiet anyway, but wanted to say thanks in advance for the chance to learn from you guys.

    Yes, lots of info around these parts,, the search can be your friend. But if that fails your needs, don't hesitate to ask. Lots of folks here are rather well-versed in a wide variety of topics.

    I have noticed that! Right now I'm still seeing what's already been covered. I have seen too many new people get blasted for being stupid to not at least look it up first lol

    Welcome aboard. I'll bet you know more than you think you do. We look forward to swapping info. RV living takes some skills to know what is enough.

    Welcome Aboard! Plenty of great info to be found here, and there is still plenty yet to learn for all of us! Ask away, the only dumb question is the one you don't ask! BTW, even the old threads need new info now and then, not every thing could ever be covered completely, and you never know, YOU might be the one to find things to add to them!

    It's been fun. Just made the one yr mark. I'm starting from scratch so it keeps me from blowing money on junk.

    Thanks everyone. Trust me I will have lots of questions as soon as I get settled in.

    Welcome to the Monkey @Itchba. It reads like we have the same goals. I am looking/ searching for a place to setup a homestead, so it will be great to read your posts. Are you planning on living in your RV or will you be building on your land?

    Hi, thanks for the welcome! I plan to live in the rv till I can build this cabin I have stuck in my head! I have a shed full of tools and such I got in the divorce, lol.
    I'm hoping if I get a cover over the RV I can make it last long enough to get a small shelter built!

    What area are looking to set up camp. Unless you can acquire the materials for free or damn near free , and calculating time involved , one of those metal carport style buildings can be cheaper and installed quicker than building one.
    I'm a contractor in NC, I just finished one of those tiny homes built on a 20 foot trailer for a young girl in Monroe. I'm definetly no expert, but I'll offer up any advice I can give you. Good luck.
