Leaving Slab City in 30 days. Unsure of destination. Thinking about heading up to Wyoming to start an off-grid collective but having just enjoyed a California winter not so sure. Very sure I don't want to be in the desert during summer, so I am looking for some input on good climates and favorable locations to go off-grid. I will only purchase land; not willing to squat it. I have some really big ideas and can only do them on owned land. My wife and I have been working on and staying at a squat in the Slabs and we have some start up cash to buy land and materials. We need to do an owner finance land purchase for any thing more than 5 acres and we definitely want more -- hopefully 40 or so in order to qualify for agricultural taxes. We are wanting to create a community for outside thinkers and tinkerers using modern tech and eco-minded building strategies. We would build dwellings and communal buildings using recycled materials and off-beat methods. We would parcel out the property for private residences and communal uses, permaculture, art, preservation, and other future concerns.
