Thinking of hitchhiking through the Upper Peninsula of Michigan & East to Maine this summer. A (preferably female) travel companion would be awesome.
I plan to spend a lot of time the UP this summer, someone to go fishing with would be cool.

Hi, my name is Kendra, I'm from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. For the past few years I've been travelling around (mostly the US, some of Southeast Asia), WWOOFing occasionally and spending a lot of time in National Forests. I love teaching myself to identify local plants & mushrooms, and would like to hone other wilderness skills as well. I am passionate about living more sustainably and where food comes from, as food is something that affects everyone in the world on a daily basis.
This summer I plan to spend some time in Upper Michigan, a little closer to my hometown. I would like to find a farm or community of like-minded people interested in living simply & off the grid to apply my energy to.
I love to garden, and I love animals. I have a good base of experience with both. I have some knowledge of wild foods & medicines, and homesteading skills like fermenting/canning, maple sugaring & cheese making. I will be taking a carpentry class this spring and hope to have more confidence in my ability to build things as well. Always seeking opportunities to learn new skills!
I am fairly adaptable & more than happy to live somewhere without electricity or internet. I normally stick to a vegetarian diet, but I make exceptions for ethically sourced game & small farmed meat. I do usually travel with my dog, so finding a host that accepts dogs would be ideal, however I understand the challenges that come with bringing outside pets so for shorter stays (a few weeks) this summer I can leave her with friends.
Please feel free to ask any questions you might have!
