Ok so a thought has recently come to me that would require quite a few hands and quite a bit more preperation. All I want to do with the rest of my life is spin fire and enjoy living. I know I am not alone in this desire. Therefore the only sensible thing in my mind has been to save up enough money to buy some land somewhere, make a generous sized garden, and live. The basic needs of food and shelter would be covered. Next comes the idea of companionship, and in marches the commune ideal. All comments welcome, but this really is a serious idea of mine so lets not get too out there folks. Possible location: ALASKA; homestead act is still viable in alaska meaning you pick a plot of land, make it better, and after seven years its yours. Any takers?

Just to be masogynistic before bed....

Cooking, cleaning, making me a sammich.... hmmm....

Sexing, entertaining, rallying.... uhh....

Nah, I think your list is fine, I was going to start adding things, but they are just subsets.

Though I guess someone familiar with the "codes" in the place where the commune would be, depending on what is installed.
ex. Building/zoning, electrical, plumbing, etc etc. As an ex-carpenter I know some places can be sticklers for small details.

I would love to see what some of these hippy fuqs would cook up. I cannot get all my nutrition from cannabis stew! I'll cook food for me and my own.

You're also going to need some sort of spiritual leader, if this is be a self sufficient, which usually means low tech living off the land, then a druid or shaman preferably.

I'm a farmers son, so growing crops or caring for animals (also a vet) would help I suppose. I also make lethal homebrew

I used to be a cab driver, so I'm really good at listening and helping people with their problems.... ^_^ (just usually not my own, but only because I feel like talking to myself makes me crazier than I already am! ^_^ )

one that is close to discovering perpetual energy creation hopefully that way we would never run out of power. Or a teleporter then we could just port ourselves to HoP HQ to resupply

I um... I have had, for some time now, an idea for a perpetual energy machine, though it would require some energy to begin it....

My problem is I'm not a machinist or electrician so I wouldn't know how to go about wiring it.

I think it would work, if I could find someone to make what's in my head a reality.

I would like to say, I think it is possible to create something that will perpetually create energy, though I do NOT think that it will ever be ONE device but a series of interconnected devices working together.

Very nice. Wow, i leave for like 2 days and this thread has grown exponentially. Now let's try to take this for what we have for sure. what would be the most logical place to do this for sure? We culd vote on whatever seems most popular. Cuz where will greatly affect our plans. Several ideas were thrown out but nothing was rly agreed upon from what I could see.

This whole thing has been a huge work in progress outside of this forum. I think the where will come after how is worked out. If where becomes an option for debate, sometimes you take what you can get and make do with what you got. grin

Question: Do we want to be self sufficient and non profit, or do we want to pursue performance, design, and produce sales as a profitable endeavor?

I don't usually burn patchouli. I prefer Nag Champa or Earth Goddess.

I'm still very interested in this, (along with teaching, cooking, farming and continuing to learn new and interesting things), and I would like to think it is all possible, and can be done at the same time in the same place.

Oh, and lighting things on fire, assorted things, for performance or otherwise. ^_^

It's on the back burner ATM. I'm sure there will be some brainstorming going on at the end of June. Right Dan?

I've been looking at land. It's very dear, unless you are in South America or some other nameless far flung continent.

Well, I figured that, I meant, literally, why? Is it just an annual HoP get together, is it a fest of some sort? lol

I don't want to pry if it's private, I was just wondering.
