About Me

 I live in the Texas Panhandle I have a  wife and three kids, I have been interested in solar and wind power for years, and want to go completely off the grid in the next 10 years!, and so now I am just educating myself so I don't make a lot of costly mistakes on my first solar and wind investments!, Plus living in West Texas we have a lot of wind 80% of the time if not more  because it is rare that we have days where it is almost dead calm with no wind, Plus I want to make sure that when my wife and I retire in the future we have a reliable power source and to be able to be in control not to answer to the big corporate Co-op power grid companies co-op power grid companies.��✌️

Hello LaMar !  Glad to find you - in "The Backwoodsman".   Your info., skills, music, etc. are EXCELLENT !  I like you attitude with life - Thanks.  People around the world have tagged me with the title of "Mountain Mel" . I'm not really a mountain man  - just wanted to live in the mountains all my life .  Finally got around to it after 23 yrs. Navy , packing parachutes and working with the SERE-P.O.W.  survival schools .  Then due to my "Vietnam vacation" ( points) I got a USPS job in Colo. - which made all possible to purchase 40 acres in beautuful Unaweep Canyon at 7,000 ft. where I created my survival tipi camp .  I have fought the system all along  but now at age 71, I have escaped , ha.  So I am still traveling, sharing and learning survival skills.  I have 40 yrs. experience from the Arctic Circle to the Amazon, having trained over 100,000 students of all ages , military and civilains.  Twice I was invited by the King of Sweden to train 17 countries.  I make fire 30 ways without a match but - oops - I am not a builder/carpenter/tool person etc.  I teach " emer. save your life skills"  at my sm. cabin in the canyon  while I do have a simple, basic  shelter in town ( Yes, one tipi is in my front yard for "sitting in the woodsmoke for escape time". My interest now is to assist a troubled youth whom wants a life style as yours - so I am searching cabin ideas, etc.  In short , you are the person whom I believe he should learn from .  I will direct him to gather , study your way of life.  Love your pups . I must say a USN " Bravo Zulu" to you . Trying to keep this short , I hope to talk to you sometime.  Sincerely standing by, (Mtn Mel) Mel Deweese and Carley Blue girl.  970-216-4178  www,youwillsurvive.com      Nature Knowledge programs.

Trying to build a toxin-free, small (tiny) home with all nontoxic building materials and furnishings. 

Questions for LaMar:  How did you do the Artesian well yourself?  How do you cool the place during really hot spells?  How do you pump the water from the cistern into the kitchen sink and shower? 

You are an amazing man, I truly admire your individuality and obvoius generosity by helping others! 

Thank you.
