Post new member, hailing from the Columbia River Gorge

Howdy, I'm happy to finally have joined. Hope to be able to learn and contribute. I'm a Brazilian-American living in the Columbia River Gorge at the moment, hoping to be heading to south central Ozarks in the spring with my girlfriend and Texas heeler.

We've been semi-homesteading for a few years, trying to live under our means, but paying rent is just a money pit. We hope to find a nice place to settle and put our higher skills to use. We both do all sorts of crafts, she is a ceramics instructor and artist, but mainly has been making good extra money with her great knitting skills, I like to carve/whittle wood and build stuff. We work together doing "finer" organic gardening (no power tools) - pruning, weeding by hand, etc - not quite landscaping, we've done that for years, and gave up breathing 2 cycle smoke and using chemicals, that's how we met though.

We have a small cabin on a single axle trailer in progress, with a wood stove of course, we plan on towing down there. Any advice is welcome, hope to meet people in the real world too, I've made some of my best friends in forums on the internet.
