Off Grid/Simple/Natural Living

the more the world turns to shit i've been looking more into building my own tiny home. cob preferably. i'm opening up this thread to discuss such ideas like types of homes, location, growing your own food, getting off grid, buying land etc

i'd love to get into a community of like minded individuals who appreciate and crave the simple things in live, not materialistic bullshit. consume consume consume is not for me

a small piece of land and a cob home growing my own food is all i've ever wanted. what about you?

Hey Mate.

This is what i'm planning to do with my life and if my girlfriend wants, has a place for her too! haha
I live in Rio de Janeiro\Brazil.

I'm travelling to a farmstead tomorrow to start my off-grid simple living in this final stage.
My family already has a "abandoned house" (A great house) and i will transform that in a auto-sufficient off the grid house.

I'm about to get sleep right now, but when i come back from there, i would love to discuss this matters with you.
I feel that something strange will occur soon, so THE TIME IS ALSO AGAINST US.

Nice to meet you!

hey dude! simple living is where my heart has always been. simple living, simple beauties. let me know how your travels went, i'm curious to know what steps you're taking. i really have no clue how to go about doing it. i'd like to get a flat earth community together of like minded people. maybe buy 50 acres or so we could easily have 100 people. these are just ideas at this point. i know i'm going to buy my own land and build my own cob home, that's my destiny. cheers!

I recommend Northern Thailand, such as Chiang Mai, many of my like-minded friends are already there and I will be moving there once we can afford it

I want too one day (sooner then later) buy some land and build my own home (cob preferably) and grow all my food (Green house) and medicine.
That feeling of freedom and independence would be amazing! The desire for doing this really came from within (no outside influence), just simply a strong overwhelming idea.

Is anybody who currently frequents the forum interested in this kind of "out of the system" lifestyle? It's very much in line with my plans and I'd hope to be joined by some proactive flat earthers.

grab 2 hands of seeds and throw them around you're neighborhood
if we fill the world with wild food no one need fear poverty.

Am wondering if there is any room on this or other boards to discuss the very real threat of our changing climate and how that is and will affect us in the future?  what does climate change/the warming up of our environment mean in this new perception of the plane we live on?  With a new understanding of our sun (not what science tells us) and the belief that we live in an enclosed bio-system?  Thoughts?

Your first comment is related to Al Gores fake Global warming, tax agenda; yet, you've come empty handed and without proof for this "warming up" period?
Do you have any evidence to support "the warming up of our environment"?

nasa.gov
"The Earth's climate has changed throughout history. Just in the last 650,000 years there have been seven cycles of glacial advance and retreat, with the abrupt end of the last ice age about 7,000 years ago marking the beginning of the modern climate era — and of human civilization. Most of these climate changes are attributed to very small variations in Earth’s orbit that change the amount of solar energy our planet receives."

Sheesh Schpankme, every single one of your comments are quite presumptuous.  
First off, you are making complete assumptions that: A) I am 'empty handed' B) That my comments had ANYTHING to do with Al Gore or a tax agenda (did you mean the carbon tax scam perhaps)?  C) It's completely contradictory that you are referencing a quote and data from NASA about "the Earth" and the "Earth's orbit" in a Flat Earth forum.  You said all of these things, I did not.  D)  I am not a scientist nor a climatologist however, I have been on this plane for nearly fifty years and do not need ANYONE to tell me whether or not every year is hotter than the last, my own god-given senses are telling me that.  That our skies are being sprayed with aerosols or not, my eyes tell me that or that there are and have been mass die-offs of animal and tree species happening everywhere for the past 10 years due to abrupt climate change or warming of our plane if that 'sounds' more accurate.  You can quote as many 'experts' as you want and post all of their videos however, I do not need 'em.  I can think, feel and make sense for myself.  Now, on to my original question.  My apologies if I was not clear.

What I was trying to convey with my question(s) were:  "With a new understanding of our sun (not what science tells us) and the belief that we live in an enclosed bio-system", I have observed that there is a lack of discussion about our climate system and the effects we are currently and undeniably experiencing lately.  I am hoping that you and other like-minded critical thinkers in these forums had given it some thought and if not, whether or not it would be beneficial to begin a thread to discuss.

You came empty handed, your climate change like that promoted by NASA is fictitious and without evidence.

Your eyes and your god can not help you here, not when you've hit upon a known fraud (climate change); and now you wish to invent the narrative.

Wow, my very first comment on this forum as a new member and this is the reception I receive from a combative individual with a fragile ego.  
Why do these interactions always have to go down this route?  Can't a question simply be asked without someone having to 'prove' their point?  I was expecting better.  

So, let me ask you Schpankme, what would a 'full hand' look like?  Would it be full of useful quotes, data and advice by other 'experts' who support your point of view or confirmation of your biases?  Again, YOU are the one that posted a link in your reply from NASA.  MY eyes have never deceived me, I do not currently have or own a god and cannot help me where?  In this reality?  On this plane of existence?  In this forum or thread?  Against you and your ego?

*Sigh* Back to the very original question for anyone interested in this topic:
"With a new understanding of our sun (not what science tells us) and the belief that we live in an enclosed bio-system", I have observed that there is a lack of discussion about our climate system and the effects we are currently and undeniably experiencing lately.  I am hoping that you and other like-minded critical thinkers in these forums had given it some thought and if not, whether or not it would be beneficial to begin a thread to discuss.

I quit working for corporations about 5 years ago. I purchased a loghome in a rural area, erected a solar array, put in an additional gravity feed surface well, built a veggie garden, and am absolutely loving it. Anyone who cannot see how insane the outside world is well, likely coming back to it.

The mid Atlantic region if the US has had serious snow storms in the last few years. It's been snowing in Georgia for the past 4years. This summer is milder then last year.
If anything, it's getting cooler.
