sounds like your setting up more of a small commune or coop but with very little resources. think these things need more planning and resources tae work longerm but i wish you good luck with it anyway
Yes sorry, I wish I could re start the thread and have explained things better, I was tired.
The dog is legally my mothers but was the family dog when I was a teen, yes am an animal communicator and have worked with animals previously, dogs, horses, birds, small wildlife. Have grown up around wildlife and farm animals, always had animals, studied them, worked with them, so know the ins and outs. Also have kept chickens in the past and lost none of them to predators.
I would take the animals feed and keep it either inside my sleep area in a seperate container or in an animal/weather proof container outside. I would make sure I never ran out, the chickens would not need much feed though with it coming upto summer so unless I had many which I dont plan on a bag of feed would last a good two months.
I lived alone, moved back in with family due to health problems at the same time I was in contact with a number of eco villages starting up and was going to move to one but due to my health had to leave it at the time, in the meanwhile family decided they wanted to do the same thing, bought land and, the same people I am living with now own the land and asked me if I wanted to go, there was a few of us at first hoping to set up a 'village' but alot have dropped out since and now just three of us. I dont know how long I plan to live there, depends on my experiences, if I cant live the lifestyle and is to hard going will move somewhere more forgiving.
...I've lived in leaking caravan infested with ants and spiders with no heating for days in the middle of febuary ... no water and then no hotwater, no electricity, having to walk 2-3 miles for food after spending all day walking/running 10miles and riding/training horses...
... i do believe alot of it is down to mental attitude. ...
I am not a troll, so that person who said they were going to go to China with their thumbs up their **** get trotting!
Ha Ha...not yet.
Look's like the plan has changed from dumping yourself in the wild to staying at the uncle's plot.
OK, I apologise for the flippant remark, the op was a bit vague.
I hope you succeed, if so I'll get the elbow pad's & Vaseline & be off.
As to the dog, they can survive well on not much, just watch for the wild part to come out. They do need feeding though
... I suspect that your average modern dog would rather have it on a plate than hunt it. ...
The average wind speed is above 15kmph, again in Summer, in Autumn and Winter, it's higher.......that's a lot of fun under a tarp/ tent/ or in a caravan.
There is a very good book on the botany of Skye; it even gives known localities for individual species. The Botanist in Skye and adjacent islands. Costs about £15 iirc.
