Andrew and I are hunting for the next place we'll be. We don't anticipate or plan on staying in Cityhouse for too long, even though it has been a great training ground. We know that we just don't belong in a city, as opportunity-filled and accessible as it is.
We'd far rather give up the ability to instantly buy a pineapple out of season for the peace of sitting on our porch and watching our animals amble past a real garden. We want our kids to grow up with chickens in their arms and dirt under their toes. We can't wait for them to be able to see the stars at night. We want to live a simple life on land that we know is good.
So! We have been spending many of our library visits looking for The Land, and as we have hunted and visited potential sites, we have come up with a checklist of things to watch out for (and looked at lots of maps of the United States). Now granted, every homesteader is probably looking for a different ideal land, but these things, we feel, are universally important to consider:
We are a husband and wife who are trying to live simply. We are learning much as we transition from life in the city to life in the country. Come along with us, and maybe you can also learn a thing or two as well.
We love writing for these fine folks as well!
