Hello everyone,
Unfortunately my laptop decided to explode in a non-repairable way so I am off-line for a few weeks until I can sort out a replacement. I will try to check submissions to the group as often as I can via my brothers laptop however in the meantime if anyone submits a piece and it expires please leave a comment below this journal and I will contact you to re-submit as soon as I am back online.

Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Self-Sufficiency, Making Do and Mending
I have come to the decision that modern life and me are never going to agree. I have therefore come to the conclusion that to try and embark on an existence within it is utterly futile, and I look to being a member of that society only to the point where I can leave it successfully and survive. In terms relating to actions, I only plan on jumping through hoops and working to the point where I have raised enough money to be the initial capital required to buy land and tools, and set myself, and my future family, up outside of this materialistic, capitalistic society that exploits the human race and the earth.

From now on, I am saving every penny I get, storing up useful items, and discarding wasteful objects. I am also going to spend the time I spend saving up for such a lifestyle modifying my

Hi there,
You will need to join as a member to submit to the group. Submission rules can be found here-…
Once you've joined your nature pictures can either go into the Growing folder for plants you've grown yourself or found growing wild, and the Wildlife & Environment folder is for pictures of insects and animals.

Thanks for adding one of my hair forks. I'm on my way to being self-sufficient and I sell my crafts on my travels. In many ways the self-suficient life stlye is just going back to what people concidered normal, but now we have cool tech to play with as well, like solar panels and browns gas genorators, which makes everything more fun!

Let's hope the green technology continues to grow!
