Default Hello out there!

As student living in a condo in a city, I don't appear to have much in common with many of you folks, but I think I share a lot of the same values and interests as the people in this community.

I first heard BHM mentioned on a podcast and after perusing an issue at the Colorado Self Reliance Expo, I decided to subscribe. I've been a subscriber for a year now and I've found something interesting in every issue!

Anyway, one day I plan to trade my condo for something a little more like a homestead so I hope to learn a lot here.

Welcome KIA....

So.... You from CO ? Or just school there ?
What you going to be when you grow up ?

Sounds as though you might be a young pup... Yes.. I suspect most of us here seem old fogies comparatively... We've been there, done it all... But keep in mind... NOT done it all at once... So don't be intimidated...

Make the best, most efficient you can of condo living while it suits your bigger goal... Then move on, one step at a time...

Enjoy...

Welcome to the forum, Knowit- if I may call you by your first name.

Many of us started out just like you: stuck in the city for reasons of economics, education, etc- but hoping & preparing to get out in the boonies and be self-sufficient as soon as possible. For some of us, that doesn't happen until we retire, but it's never too late.

I'm a CO transplant actually, I grew up in CA.

I'm studying materials science, although I'm not sure what career path I will end up in now. Up until recently I wanted to spend a number of years at a national lab, but recent experiences have soured my attitude towards that idea.

I am comfortable taking things slow with my living arrangements, I do what I can to enjoy where I am in life while still looking forward to the future.
