I've lived in a remote off-grid cabin near a fly-in lake in the Alaskan bush since 1996. No services, and usually no people except a handful who occasionally fly out to their vacation cabins. My son was only 8 when my husband died. After a couple of years, we came to Virginia to be closer to family. Sure didn't intend to stay this long. After 6 years of "civilization", my now 16 year old son and I are more than ready to head back to the bush!
We're planning to return to Alaska this spring, but maybe sooner, depending on political events. I'm not sure if we'll move back to my cabin permanently. It's wonderfully peaceful there, but I'm now a very young 61 year old widow, and my son is 16. My late husband and I adopted him at birth. He's an awesome young man with a kind heart, a love for God, and a strong work ethic. Both of us would love to move back to the cabin, but we might relocate to someplace not quite so remote. Maybe elsewhere in Alaska, or maybe some rural area in the Lower 48. We haven't been back to the cabin in a few years, so I definitely want to get out there soon to check on things, and then I'll decide whether to stay or leave.
I've always liked Montana, Wyoming, and the Missouri Ozarks. Never been to Oklahoma. With all the political mess going on, I'm inclined to stay in the Alaskan bush once we finally get back. It's pretty isolated out there. Lots of pros and a few cons to living that remote. The only way to get there is in a small bush plane.
As a homeschool project, my son and I studied and passed the Amateur (ham) radio licensing exam last year. He's super into ham radios and building antennas. He passed the General Class exam, and is now studying for his Amateur Extra license. He's also into working on engines, does all the repairs and maintenance on our pickup, and is studying now for his private pilot's license. Hasn't started official training yet, but he has the manuals and it's something he'd like to accomplish before his 19th birthday.
I'm Messianic, and would love to live closer to Torah Observant believers who are homesteader, prepper sorts. I have lots of skills gained from all those years living off-grid in the Alaskan bush. And, of course, I'd love to meet a single Messianic man somewhere in my age range who is young at heart. I'm healthy and active.
