At your age/stage, I would think that WWoof opportunities would be a good fit. If it is your intention to go totally hobo, it might be a good idea to read "The Art and Science of Dumpster Diving." Also, some sort of tinker-like craft-skill you could trade for cash would be very helpful. For instance, I knew a young man who made simple jewelry out of odd pieces of cutlery he picked up at thrift shops or garage sales. Picking up day labor jobs on Craigslist could also generate some cash in a pinch. Obviously, shelter will be more of an issue/expense than food.

I'm thinking of getting/making a silvo pasture job. I'm thinking working for ranchers would be a good niche to get into so that I don't need to do any homesteading expenses for electricity. Housing wise ill be happy in a uninsilated shed if it has internet

If you understand french, the youtube channel "ma ferme autonome" is really great.

I'll check it out, let's hope it has sub titles. Do you think I'll be able to get info from it without understanding french
