Greetings from our 20 acre off-grid homestead in the Ozarks. We are non-religious, four wheeling, gun toting, tree hugging, wood burning, craft beer drinking, antisocial socialite libertarians who happen to be vegetarian. We’ve recently added a baby to the mix and Jennifer has turned out to be the most awesome mama ever, happily assuming the role of mama, teacher, and protector of our son. With the arrival of the boy, the loss of sole source of income, and the need of the latter to care for the former, we’ve landed in Springfield, MO, in an urban setting, for the time being. We’ve worked things out where the boy is always with one of us while the other may be tending to other tasks, such as the all important paycheck earning jobs. Homeschooling or unschooling is in our near future. We are always looking to meet other like minded individuals, couples, and groups. So far, we have yet to find any other off grid living natural parenting vegetarian atheists who are true libertarians. But, hey, two out of four wouldn’t be bad! Give us a holler if any of this sounds interesting.  If you want to know more, you can find us on thegrayhomestead.com.

We are confirmed atheists.  We aren’t the pushy, in your face kind of atheist.  We just don’t believe that there is an omnipotent, omnipresent being that created man (or anything for that matter).  How did we get here?  We don’t know.  But we are pretty sure that we didn’t get here the way that any of the religions of the world believe we got here.

So, our child will be raised to think for himself.  We will attempt to shield him from some of the things that help to indoctrinate the young into the belief of a deity. We are taking responsibility for helping to stop the cycle of religiosity.

Before moving off of the homestead, we were working on a project called Ozark Homesteader.  If you are interested in sharing your story of homesteading, self sufficiency, or self reliance, then please let us know.
