my thread NEW COMMUNITY was more of a survey. this is my plan i have a chance to buy 48 acres with a possiblity to buy 42 more, or i can go a little further northeast and get 298 acres. i want to start a co community of "Homesteaders" Basically set up a "Self providing town" we grow our own food, make our own tools, furniture, anything that comes to our minds. i wanted to have a school run by volunteers, a store to sell our goods, and possible a mill run by water to provide some electricity. If people wanted to join they could, they can be free to go when ever they wanted to. If they had no money i don't care i just ask that they help out with the food and animal raising, so that the community would be provided for. i don't plan on working when i get out of the military except for the community. i'm goning to do this with or with out others. it would be nice to have others with my son, my wife,and me to do this. IT is very capable of working people would just need to all work together to get the job done. All that i would ask is that the buildings look like colonial America. This is a dream no doubt but then again this COUNTRY was founded on a DREAM.
