    I have disibilities but I was raised on a farm and can do so again. I recieve a retired disibility pension check monthly. I am searching for a 5th wheel bunk house stlye rv trailer. I’ll also switch pickup truck for a good diesel type truck. I’m in finanial ruin. I’m bad at math and I’m trying hard to setup a automatic bill paying program. For an accident I didnt see coming. bummer. sorry about the laundry but I need to know where to look for land to homestead.

      Hi Robert – I started my homestead journey in Colorado and found that being out on the planes (near Fort Lupton) was just a hard battle with lack of water. It really made maintaining vegetable gardens etc tough. So my advice is to look for some land that is closer to the mountains – which I know adds cost to the land, but the benefit of the extra moisture will make life easier. Gaz
