Got tired of traveling and settled on the west coast of British Columbia (for now).
I live on a little island with no towns and it would be nice to have someone to talk to as I'm completely off grid without even a generator right now. If you like sailboats, temperate rainforest, harvesting oysters, copper smithing, homesteading, growing poppies, and books- let's be friends. Deal breakers are overly pc bullshit, new age bullshit, 2punx4u bullshit, and clueless bullshit.
I don't care if you're male or female, I like dogs, I like good times. I'm pretty caught up in my head and always designing or making stuff.

Unfortunately I am not really a traveler yet... and not so free until I calculate my break.... and I am definitely clueless...
But I like your post. Hope you find company. Peace.

I'm currently planning on travelling, but your offer is pretty interesting!! I'll keep it in mind if my plans don't work out that well

Hey dear Xandra,
did you find anyone already?
Actually I'm preparing to work as a volunnteer through WWOOF but not that far, at least for now, specially for money reasons. I am preparing to go to Denmark for a while. ;)
I wish you all the luck for your looking. * Warm hugs from the sunny Lisbon

Your own island that's kind of cool. Hope you find a friend you can trust.

Hey! I'm not traveling at the moment, but perhaps we'll meet when I get back on the road. I'm considering setting up a homebase somewhere in the rainforests of the Northwest and love the idea of living close to the land of the area. What are you up to these days?

Here's some more info. It is not my own island; it just a private boat access only island. There's even a little school which is on the other end. (5 miles or so) I have neighbours..but they aren't really that close. And no, so far no one has nothing better to do than live in a rural area with me. haha. If you have Canadian or west coast buds pass this along. Everyone I know sucks balls and is either working a day job or too traincore to forest.

Canada and America are really no different culturally, politically, etc..It kind of all sucks- that's why I live in the woods.

I don't feel like I belong anywhere... and I feel blessed.
Real fucking lucky baby.::cigar::
It's a damn great coincidence in this life that I was born to...
I don't see nationality, race, gender, sexual orientation, piercings, tattoos, disabilities, and phobias... weird hermits or cat lady obsessions, skinny, fat, cheerful, angry resentful blues... everyone of us searching for clues...
I don't care if your spiritual or atheist... agnostic or a train enthusiast.
I'm a fucking human being.
And so are you.
Now... if we cross paths... I will approach you with every benefit of the doubt.
So just remember slow down your judgment and consider your reaction may be friendship... or distance.
Lets be friends... and fuck prejudice... that divides us and creates false resistance.

I just... wrote this... in a mood with a bit of attitude... but I just want... us to fall in peace.
And now my lyrical prose shall cease...
For a drunk cannot find ease in a paragraph... of prose released.

::drinkingbuddy::

PS:... Mayhap the woods... be a good place.

I know this comes kinda' late, but I'd be interested.
I'm pretty much on the same Wavelength you've described.
Send me a message.

@James Maarsten and @AlexFrost91 , this is a pretty old thread and the OP hasn't logged in quite some time, 2015 to be precise. Unfortunately they more than likely won't respond to your questions. Don't let it getcha down though!

I'm sure someone on the forums will be able to give you answers or are interested in a similar living set up. Instead of necroposting this thread why not start a new one?

    More Info

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$0.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $0.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $0.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $0.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

This dumpster was amazing;I'd often found throwaways of the big liter bottles they ship syrup with codiene to pharmacies in. Because of the consistency of it there would always be an ounce or two in the bottle they didnt get out. I'd get 2 or 3, spatula scrape out the good, make some szrrrp, put on DJ screw and get faded. :)
