Hi, Caribou Jade!

Trying to reach you to discuss our Off Grid documentary series with National Geographic.  Is there a time that works for you to jump on the phone or Skype?

Thanks!

UK Documentary Series - New Lives in the Wild

Hello,
I hope you are well and you don’t mind me getting in touch in this manner.
I work for a UK TV production company and I am currently looking for new stories for series 3 of ‘Ben Fogle: New Lives in the Wild’ which goes out on Channel 5 (UK) and BBC Worldwide. www.channel5.com/shows/ben-fogle-new-lives-in-the-wild

I wanted to know if you have a contact number I could get you on and have a chat with you in a bit more detail about the series and about your story. Essentially I am looking for people from all walks of life, male or female, lone-rangers or families that have given up their lives in the city to go back-to-basics and live in the wilderness / off grid, hunt or grow food off the land, built their own home, live with little or no electricity or running water etc. We are looking for inspirational stories that will change the opinion of the viewer to a new way of living.
I wondered if this was similar to your situation or even of people you have met on your travels.

Here is some more information on the show… Adventurer Ben Fogle gets a taste of extreme escapism in this series meeting those who have turned their backs on the daily grind. Each week, Ben spends time in one of the world’s most remote locations, meeting the people who now inhabit these beautiful corners of the planet after leaving their ordinary lives behind. Our intrepid guide also wonders whether these extraordinary individuals and their incredible experiences might tempt him to move his own family out of London and away from the comforts of the city. Is it daring or downright crazy? Ben wants to discover the truth about life in tough, harsh conditions, where doing battle with Mother Nature is a daily reality.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch and I look forward to hearing from you,

Kind Regards,
Sophie

How long have you guys been homesteading?
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Hey Im seriously interested in homesteading and ranching in alaska. I dont know anything about either of those though im afraid though. I dont want to give up my dream as a cattle rancher just because I was born a silly city boy. Im starting a plan to learn about ranching and literally everything else I would need for that lifestyle in alaska. I have dozens of questions that I cant necessarily get tailored answers to and you would help me immensely if you could just answer even a few. I added you on G+ I hope you can get back to me, thanks.

I love these posts! I've been reading though your blog all morning and love what I see. I am currently considering pursuing a life very similar to yours and I have a few questions! I would love to email you and get some more information. For starters, I was wondering how much leisure/down-time you have when you are self sustaining! Someone like me absolutely loves the woods, but living in the same spot forever and not having free time to go backpack elsewhere would be hard on me. Do you ever get all the work that you need to get done accomplished, and then could go on a week long backpacking trip and return?

Thanks for sharing this article, its been a really great read! I've never dealt with wilderness programs before. I've been looking for something new and different and think that I would love to try this for a summer if I can. Thanks again for sharing!

Hello Jade, I would like help in getting started in homesteading. I'm 49, and had lived in Anchorage, AK before. I want to return there, but lay a claim for a homestead this time around. Can you help me with this?

And I am familiar with Tiny Home living, at 300-500sq ft. I used to own a condo with
920sq ft. Start small...and build on from there.

Let me know how to get in touch with you, via email or Skype. Thank you.

Really enjoying your stories! I am reading all your posts. We have a lot in common from what I read. I also do work on the internet with blogging/seo type work. I am actively searching for land in Alaska to start a homestead. With what I have learned from you, that I can get Verizon hotspot out there, I know that I could make an income working on a laptop, and still pursue my dream of living a self sufficient lifestyle. I am saving your website and going through and reading as much as possible.

Was wondering why you don't use Adsense with your website? Product placement is great, but its much easier to get consistent revenue with Adsense (in my opinion). Anyways, thanks for the inspiration!

Maybe I can share my camping trip at Yosemite National Park, CA? I had my own bear experience there. :)  ABSOLUTELY! SEND IT TO ME AND I'LL POST IT!
