  • Description


    I'm living an off the grid life in the middle of the forest, in a beautiful location close to the redwood forest in Northern California, surrounded with rivers and wild life.
    I would like to share my off grid way of life with people interested in living that way, having a simple life. I want people that likes to work hard, loves the forest and feel good in nature. I have some projects in general construction, a tool,shed always need help to bring firewood, some gardening and if things go well, I would be happy to go hiking, rafting adventures, into the redwoods, go to the coast or any other activity.
    It will all depend on the season the work that needs to be done but firewood is the main help I will need.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    They will learn to live off grid, understanding how to live with nature, because nature is the one that is providing water, heat, electricity and entertainment. Also you will learn how to work with wood, I can teach you how to use some tools and general construction. You will have the experience to see how is life in the middle of the forest and I'll be happy to share anything I could.
    I've traveled 28 countries and I gained many good stories to share with you.

  • Accommodation


    For a couple I have a trailer that is fully equipped with a small kitchen, hot water, bed, wood stove, propane stove, 12 volt light and outside bath and outhouse.
    If it's a group of 3 or more we can use the trailer as base then the others must camp.I do have a 40 foot shipping container i am putting a wood stove in soon
    The property it's in a really nice area with a micro climate, next to the creek, the electricity comes from the sun and we have spring water.

    What else ...

    Theres lots of things to do, rafting, hiking, go to the river, explore the forest, a trip to the ocean where the redwoods meet the ocean, go to the redwoods, camping somewhere, make a fire, anything you have in mind.
    I can provide transport to get you to the property, picking you up from Redding or Arcata, California.
