Thats where the valley / lake part come in. I wrote it a bit out of order. I could make do with a good well if I had enough land and animals. Solar is getting reasonable and so is wind
If I had the top 1/3 of so of a hill or mountain there may be a sufficient stream with good water flow and maybe even some fish. I’ve seen some places like that in NC.
I just want to live out in nature and feel alive and connected to the earth and it’s seasons. Growing or harvesting what I need from my environment would be great and peaceful. It would likely add 20 years to my life.
I am tired of being around so many people. I would much rather be around way fewer people and those around be the likeable neighborly sort at least 20+ acres away from my front door. Maybe backing up to a National preserve or park or wildlife management area. Somewhere I could set up an outdoor shooting range without bothering people. Where I live now even my Umarex .22 Octane Pellet Gun with silencer seems loud
