you dont have to be survivorman from day 1

2017-09-21 20:56:00 UTC  

Ideally, it'd be a hotel for a week till a log cabin is built.

2017-09-21 20:56:07 UTC  

As much as a lot of you will hate this, I suggest getting some cheap trailers on the site

2017-09-21 20:56:12 UTC  


2017-09-21 20:56:20 UTC  

Until we build some cabins and what not

2017-09-21 20:56:26 UTC  

i wouldn't mind sleeping in maybe a hammock or something

2017-09-21 20:56:30 UTC  

during construction

2017-09-21 20:56:33 UTC  

of the first cabin

2017-09-21 20:56:53 UTC  

We could do shipping contanors.

2017-09-21 20:57:11 UTC  

that would cost a lot though

2017-09-21 20:57:22 UTC  

much more than a week's worth of sweat in building a house

2017-09-21 20:57:37 UTC  

perhaps two weeks, though

2017-09-21 20:58:41 UTC  

@ram3n that's my point. 6 men should be able to build a log cabin in a week. Then we keep clearing land to plant crops and grow a pasture.

2017-09-21 20:58:56 UTC  

I'm telling you, call me white trash all you want but holding your nose and getting a cheap trailer will keep you alive long enough to build permanent housing lol

2017-09-21 20:59:27 UTC  

white trash aren't going to go out in the wilderness and forge a life for themselves

2017-09-21 20:59:45 UTC  


2017-09-21 21:00:11 UTC  

Just don't want the first wave of us to freeze to death out there in tents

2017-09-21 21:00:13 UTC  

Or get sick

2017-09-21 21:00:31 UTC  

@K_Wagner if our ancestors could build a house that lasted the winter without modern tecnology we should be able to do it too.

2017-09-21 21:00:52 UTC  

We would be starting during the spring.

2017-09-21 21:01:01 UTC  

yeah we'll probably need a *lot* of insulation

2017-09-21 21:01:52 UTC  

That's more reassuring

2017-09-21 21:01:59 UTC  

or I don't know, a fire place.

2017-09-21 21:03:14 UTC  

unfortunately, because of how we've modernized as a society, we haven't really needed to pass down the knowledge of building homes that will last

2017-09-21 21:03:22 UTC  

so it'll be interesting

2017-09-21 21:04:39 UTC  

mossy rock has an average winter low of 20F. That's 40F warmer than my home of wisconsin.

2017-09-21 21:04:52 UTC  

20f isn't that bad

2017-09-21 21:04:58 UTC  

i've had worse in indiana

2017-09-21 21:05:07 UTC  

what's the average high?

2017-09-21 21:05:16 UTC  

Remember also that our construction will need a degree of permanence, since we're not just building a camping lodge for a bunch of bros, we're going to bring in our wives and families as well

2017-09-21 21:05:30 UTC  

And 20f is nothing, I'm glad to hear that

2017-09-21 21:05:40 UTC  

Grew up in Illinois lol by the lake

2017-09-21 21:05:55 UTC  

@ram3n 90 F in july and august.

2017-09-21 21:06:00 UTC  


2017-09-21 21:06:07 UTC  

i think i'm gonna love it at mossy rock

2017-09-21 21:06:13 UTC  

Mossy Rock really sounds great

2017-09-21 21:06:34 UTC  

Is there any hunting?

2017-09-21 21:06:42 UTC  

Or trapping?

2017-09-21 21:07:03 UTC  

i'm sure there's tons of animals around

2017-09-21 21:07:34 UTC  

@K_Wagner log cabins are gonna be temporary while we clear land and plant crops. We probably wont have modern housing, but we could do old world manors.
