buying land in west virginia?
    #1063158 - 11/18/02 05:19 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

my gal and i want to get some land in wv where we can raise some animals and live in peace and quiet. have any of you done this or own a farm? i was looking for some resources or advice on how to go about doing this. i guess we would have to get a lone and all of that. ideally we want a cheap old place that we could fix up with a lot of land. hmmm, where to start??? help us move out of the city!

Sounds like a good idea.  I plan on "getting off the grid" soon myself. I recommend this site for helpful notes:  soil and health  :smile:

If you want to use appliances you need an alternative energy source. Search around online. Solar panels, generators, wind mills, and hydroelectric power are a few types. You should read up on farming and raising animals. You will suffer if you are not well educated in both fields. You can find alot of good information online if you do a search for homesteading. Good luck, It is definitely a worthwhile goal.

yeah, ive been in the city too long, and i know it isnt where i want to be so its about time to do something. im just not sure how i go about finding a place, thats the hard part. i guess the best first bet would be to drive around the area and see if anything was available. funding will be another dilema. we will probably get married to help out with loans and all that jazz. anyone new to the country life out there?

eh, I don't live in West Virginia...but I'm probably going to move there within the next year for the same reason...Northern Va is just too damn crowded... I go out to West Virginia every once in a while...
Look for land in/around Martinsburg, Berkley springs area... great area...mountainous spacious area...yet close enough to a small city where you don't have to drive an hour to go grocery shopping..

Yee Haw, West By God Virginny!

Beautiful country, I wouldn't mind living there, but you guys got your own damn language, and it sounds like it'd be too hard to learn! :cool:

haha, yeah i bet communicating with the backwoods folk is going to be interesting at first. im kind of scared about how the locals will react to a longhaired "stinky hippy couple" moving onto their territory. i guess i can only greet them with open arms and hope they do the same.

if you find a good place to live (water source, forest, fertile ground) let us know. a bunch of people with the same mindset (shrooms are good, expand your mind and whatnot) in the same general area would be incredibly fun. id move out there when i had money :laugh:

I'm sure none of us will be ready in 4 months but  you better be!  You get the land ready --we'll take care of showing up to occupy it. :laugh:  Seriously though.  I want to do this.  It's gonna take me a lot longer than 4 months to get ready tho.

Mental note: Get land, supplies, wait for people to show up.

Got it.

Ideallistically i think everyone would one day want to do this sort of thing, but it will only be cheap if you can live without electricity. If you can't then you have to have some means of alternative energy, which isn't exactly cheap. Of course you'll need land... amount needed, price, and location all must be researched. Then you have houses to build, supplies to get. You have to work out ways to get food, medicine, etc. Not that this sort of thing isn't impossible, and it is definitely a worthwhile goal, it would take alot of preperation. And I'm still gonna try. :laugh:
