im headed to my new home in Big Island, Hawaii next week. hawaii is so beautiful and peaceful that it persuaded me to move. i thought long and hard about making this move. i got less than $1000 and 2 suitcases. im confident everything will work fine as i settle into my new home.

 once i get to the island ill work on a farm for 3 months in exchange for food and a place to sleep. i have the possibilty to extend it longer. this exchange is "wwoofing". i just need tipd on how to make it after that.

i was thinking of moving to an eco village/community. im not sold on doing it yet.

IDK if all eco communites make you share the same room with others. if community living is a very cramped environment i may need to rethink that. i prefer a little more space and freedom, but still having a since of community and assistance in the town/area, where living is low priced or cost free.

do they have this in hawaii?

i dont wanna go back to the system working a matrix job all day. my goal is to get off grid and live remotely. if i have no choice and must make money, maybe i could do a more low key job like farming in a local village.

if you know a thing or 2 about eco/sustainable living, gladly pitch some tips to give me more clarity.

and if you know about how to homestead/sustain,. let me know

my end goal is to have my own plot of land. it dont have to be

    Dream on.  The druggie-brain dead hippies of the 1960s already tried it in Hawaii.  Lots of online photos and stories of their miserable experience.  First, try living on your own in your Mommy's back yard and see how long you last.

    Wow. I did the same thing 23 years ago. My plans were not well laid so I bailed out and went back home. If you stick with your intention to stay in Hawaii, you will succeed. But it will take time and perseverence. You will have to work a job and save money while staying in a youth hostel. Then doors will begin to open. But it's a long shot. Two bags and $ have a challenge ahead of you. Optimism might turn to pessimism.

    Sounds like you need a small dark green tent and a backpack.   No need for 2 suitcases of clothes- a couple pair of shorts and t-shirts would be good.   Watch out for the centipedes though.
