A bunch of us have mentioned we're former military. Although our plans aren't military, it does mean more than a few of us know a thing or too about hard work, survival, leadership, and organization

2017-09-21 20:53:40 UTC  


2017-09-21 20:53:42 UTC  

Which are all very good things

2017-09-21 20:53:50 UTC  

i'm planning to head into the military

2017-09-21 20:53:55 UTC  

but i want to stay here and help build

2017-09-21 20:53:59 UTC  

the few can teach the rest

2017-09-21 20:54:04 UTC  


2017-09-21 20:54:20 UTC  

which should come first: my duty to my race or my country?

2017-09-21 20:54:33 UTC  

In a perfect world they would be the same

2017-09-21 20:54:37 UTC  

feeding people is expensive, so will probably want to go in early spring when sleeping in a tent doesn't suck. then we can grow our own food and sell excess produce to raise funds for further expansion.

2017-09-21 20:54:56 UTC  

potentially ranching

2017-09-21 20:55:03 UTC  

should we actually build a farm + buy animals

2017-09-21 20:55:11 UTC  

And there's always the family hens and hundreds of cans of soup

2017-09-21 20:55:14 UTC  

@dmac100 you can just rent an apartment

2017-09-21 20:55:43 UTC  

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 20:58:48 UTC  


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
