    Plan to move to far north Boise or Eagle, Idaho fall of 2017. Converting school bus to move, convert once in Idaho. Seeking area with spring and safe location, like minds.

    Moving to north Eagle, Idaho, fall 2016. Seeking off grid area north, converting bus, need spring. Would enjoy like minded comments. Thanks.

    Thank you for your reply. After reading Joel Skousen’s book, Strategic Relocation several years ago, my husband and I chose Idaho as a state to relocate to. We have visited the Boise and surrounding areas. Joel stated if moving to the Boise area, to live north of Chinden, Rt 44 and be close to Rt 55. This was our only reasoning, but we are free to live anywhere we want, Eagle is simply a starting point. We will gut the school bus to transport our wares to Idaho. We will purchase a home and make it off-the-grid. We were seeking an area with not too much snow and cold, coming from 40+ years in hot, hot Phoenix. We will not live in the bus, more than likely convert once we move to Idaho and use for traveling camp. We have also looked into the far north Payette area of the state, and mountainous area of eastern Boise. We are open to all areas of the state, preferring to stay within an hour from a large city, have some property with a spring. We are originally both from the rust belt area of Youngstown, Ohio, have lived in Phoenix, AZ now well over 40 years.

    • Hi Cindy. We are also looking for property. I have checked out just about everything about southern Idaho. From geology to well reports. The Council / Cambridge area is good but you have to watch because some areas are solid rock with very little top soil. However, as I am on every realtors email list right now I just got one this morning for 20 acres for sale near Midvale Idaho which is beautiful. The price on this land is $35,000. It has some fencing and is somewhat remote BUT near enough to town to get supplies. If you want this information email me at mountainviewoffgridliving@yahoo.com

    Not sure where to begin so thought I’d post here. Have inherited 113 acres near the end of Little Smokey Creek Road outside of Fairfield, Idaho that I think would be perfect for someone looking to live off the grid. Any ideas where I should list it to reach the right audience? 80 acres are deeded so you’d own all mineral & timber rights so plenty of building material available. Have it listed on Craig’s List Boise so far but do appreciate any suggestions. wildfirerumor@yahoo.com

      I am assuming this the mining claim you were talking about? From the looks of what was reported, the creeks are contaminated with heavy metals but it was never cleaned up because the original owners moved to Virginia?

      I am looking to buy property in Idaho. I live in Boise for 10 years but had to move to Japan for awhile for work. I raised animals, had a large farm and was a homesteader. Anway, do you have the coordinates for the property? http://www.idahogeology.org/PDF/Staff_Reports_(S)/2000/S-00-13.pdf

    Here’s something a little different for you folks. I’ll be moving my family to Idaho in late Summer/early Fall. I’m looking around the middle of the state around St. Mary’s and North of there as I like the seclusion and am no stranger to Mountain living. Here’s the kicker-I make VERY little money. As such, I’m not looking for property to buy. Can’t afford it. Ideally, I’m looking for as small a town as possible, while still being able to find work. I never could figure what I wanted to do with myself so far as a career was concerned and so I went straight into the workforce after High School. No College. I work mainly unskilled labor jobs in Factory’s and Distribution Centers. My Wife stays at home to take care of our 14 month old twins. At that age, Daycare costs are astronomical and I don’t trust those “Care Providers” so far as I could throw ’em. A couple finer points here-Around where we live now (NW Indiana), you can find 1-2 bedroom homes for rent at a reasonable rate ($500-$750). I would prefer this as opposed to renting an apartment as I have a number of tools (ladder, wheelbarrow, lawn and forest and garden implements) that simply aren’t suitable for storage in an apartment, and frankly, to dangerous to have the kids playing around. The other point is Church Services. We adhere specifically to the KJV of the Christian Bible, and not any specific denomination. We’re happy to sit in with Mormons, JW, Baptists, Catholics, you name it. But we don’t view supplemental texts (The Book of Mormon for example) as Canon, and we prefer a “Prepper Friendly” Church that isn’t afraid of discussing current events and Politics as it relates in a Biblical sense, or what God expects of us in these times. I know this is a tall order to fill and I apologize for the lengthy “comment”, but I like to lay all my cards on the table and see where the chips fall.
    Contact me at pheilsb@hotmail.com and thank you in advance for any advice you may have.
