    Hello all, I stumbled onto this forum when researching permaculture. Found some interesting threads. I have traveled a lot with my career, many times in various countries where I had to rely on my own abilities, but also learned local ways of being self-reliant. I'm currently in Alaska, although likely moving again next year. No matter where I go, I always have a veggie garden patch. If I'm forced to live in an apartment, I'll still grow veggies in pots and containers. I process natural fibers from start to finished wearable product. I have a smattering of other abilities, but am eager to learn from others and establish community ties. Coddiwomple is an old English word that means to travel in a purposeful manner towards a vague destination. It describes my life to a T. Coddi

    Coddiwomple is an old English word that means to travel in a purposeful manner towards a vague destination. It describes my life to a T. Coddi

    My son and I were just discussing that great word "coddiwomple" about a week ago. When I read your intro to my husband and said "It describes my life to a T." My husband responded "Yes it does." Lol, meaning MY life, not yours. :lol:

    Welcome, fellow travelor! :D One of my son's goals is to eventually own his own sheep or alpaca so he'll be able to make his own things from start to finish. He's another coddiwompler. :)
