Getting There  
No new posts First Things First
This is where we talk about planning your big move to your homestead or out to the country ---- things to consider before you move, ways to prepare, things you should have, what to do and learn, etc. If you're a seasoned homesteader, share your experience and suggestions here. If you're just thinking about such a move, ask away! That first year is the hardest. We want to help you prepare and make it a success.

Bush Living  
No new posts Building In The Bush
Here's where we share ideas on everything related to building your cabin and other outbuildings in the bush. Without electricity, a lumber yard down the road, or a bunch of neighbors around to lend a hand, you need to plan ahead and do things differently. Here we talk about log construction, milling lumber, clearing a spot for your cabin, etc.

No new posts Pioneering
As the name of this forum implies, this is the place to talk about things that are really basic --- the way things were done "way back when". Way back before folks could just run to the store to pick up things they needed. Way back during the "pioneer days". You get the idea. If you ever find yourself wishing you could go back in time, and want to talk about those days, this is the place.
