How to Meet People
How do you socialize? How do your kids socialize? How do you grow enough in a dry area to afford enough gas to drive to the city where there are more people? Where do you find gas stations? My husband saw a picture online of a mountain with a flat top and said he wanted to live there. But how do you host parties on the top of a mountain? Does anyone have a Meetup group? I have a panic attack once a week without medicine, a lot to do with cabin fever in a suburb. Where can I buy prescription drugs? If I choose to stay married will I eventually go insane? Will our future kids go insane? I think full-time RVing has more social and employment opportunities but my husband’s an army brat and wants to stay in one place. However, with farm bankruptcies at an all-time high, how do you keep yourself employable during your prime working ages so you can maximize the salaries in social security? My husband’s 20 years older than me so I know I’m going back to the city to find a job when he passes.

Sheesh, that's an awful lot there in one paragraph.

Living off-grid doesn't mean you are out of the solar system or anything. There are always people around. :)

The universe will always provide.

Rewards of rural life are abundant but offer a slower rate of return, instant gratification tries my patience.

And, What's so great about being around a lot of people anyway? Just may find that you are more productive without so many distractions.

Then there is always the possibility of insanity...

-Never know till you try - Good Luck!

A really good councilor should be able to help more than this yurt forum. Most of us are just humble yurt builders, yurt dwellers, or yurt lovers. The questions you're asking don't seem to be the kind that a yurt can solve. It can maybe help with some symptoms - it's a calming space. But no matter where you are, there you are. A yurt. A padded room ;) . Get you to a good person who can talk and get you some human tools to handle the challenges. The yurt can come later.

Let go of the steering wheel and you will drive off the road.
