I go out and have a yard a northern NY and I have never had a tick and I never take precautions. Everyone always said oh it's a bad year or whatever but I never get one. Soon I will die of lyme.
Teddy actually lived the out dream you stupid fuck.

He literally did nothing wrong.
Low IQ people can't tell whenever they are sick with a mild cold. I wouldn't be surprised if you had dozens of ticks on you. They can smaller than a fingernail spec. Are you farsighted?

I'm thinking about buying some super cheap desert land in bumfuck nowhere like north Nevada or south texas. You can get this stuff for less than $500 per acre. I'm thinking at least 40 acres.

It's flat, dry, alternately very hot and very cold, and near nothing of interest. But you can often get a parcel bordering BLM land, or down near Big Bend in Texas.

I'd like to have it for /out/ shit, hunting, and maybe build a cabin or do some "greening the desert" permaculture stuff. I'd be satisfied with just a primitive refuge from modern life.

Is this a good idea, or totally retarded?

You can find fully forested parcels for $1k per acre. Why not pay a bit more per acre for land that's usable?
You'll die.

I was going to do the same thing.
If you really want to farm and do premaculture you need water.
There is no water there.

Also the catch on a lot of these cheap desert properties is they want you to install septic before you can even build a home there, off grid is not exactly legal.

That's not to say don't buy property.
You can always use it for something and you "own" it.
But for somewhere to settle permanently and farm look for places with seasons and lots of water.
Plants and animals need a lot of fucking water.
Biggest fuck you too. They take your land and sell it to someone else if you don't pay.

Is anyone here off the grid and/or have their own homestead?

It's been something I've seriously considered about in the last year or so. Buy several acres of land out in literally nowhere, maybe 20-30 minutes away from a town and just getting a house built out there. Have a small patch to grow veggies, a chicken coop, maybe a goat or two ot hogs. Rainwater collection system, a few solar panels here and there. Sounds like the ultimate goal I have so far in life right now.

I'm a farmer and I make $2400-$3000 a year. I only make that much to pay for government stuff, electric, fuel, and internet. The trick is to not be in debt at all. Owning everything, instead of renting, loaning, or paying mortgage, is quite amazing.
Me? I'm right behind you.
>Bad spring flooding kills your first batch of crops and you need to replant
>beehives get fungus'd, no more honey until can reestablish
>coons kill half your chickens in 1 night, several hundred bux to replace and still go a month with no/insufficient eggs as the replacements acclimate and start laying again (yeah chicks are a couple bucks each but then you need to wait 6+ months before they lay)
>something major/structural breaks on your vehicle, such as the frame rusting out or throwing a piston, and you need to replace it
Lots of things can go wrong besides you getting sick or hurt that most homesteaders don't have the cash cushion to weather. I mean, as long as you're not farming on an industrial scale it doesn't or shouldn't take that much of a cash cushion to survive one of those, but most homesteaders don't have it.

And what about retirement? What are you going to do when your body's worn out (which will happen early after a life of manual labor and limited medical care, even barring any major injuries)? Dying early and suddenly is one thing, wasting away in your cabin for weeks or more as everything you built rots and falls down around you because your body gave out but hasn't quite decided to die yet is another.

What about nonfatal but long-term illnesses, especially those you can't throw money at a doctor to cure/shorten/attenuate (assuming you had the money to do it to start with)? What happens when you're stuck in your outhouse shitting your brains out for a week with the flu? Bedridden with a 105F fever from mono or strep? You're not hunting, you're not feeding your animals or tending your garden, you're not making/repairing your tools.

These are the things most homesteaders don't have a decent if any plan for. It's doable, don't get me wrong, but it takes forethought and planning, and is much easier with a partner (usually spouse, but friends and buttbuddies work too for the MGTOW folk).
All valid scenarios and concerns. If you can't afford to keep at least a few thousand, then the risk may be too high.

I'm not counting on social security for retirement. That's for sure. Although, if it's still around when I'm old enough, that would be plenty to live on. I also have a wife (25 yrs next fall), so if either of us takes I'll the other will still be able to get things done.

Personally, I'd like to establish a nice certified organic homestead over the course of the next 5-10 yrs and then sell for a good profit. My land has appreciated $15k in 6 months and we haven't even built yet. Adding a cabin, well, etc. will only increase the value.

I'd really love to live in an antarctic island somewhere, or somewhere very far south, maybe on a new zealand or south atlantic island. How would I go about doing this? Could getting a degree in aircraft maintenance help? Or would that only certify me for working in the U.S? Could I work/live somewhere far away and keep my american citizenship? Are there any non-tropical american islands I can live on? I like the cold

[PART 1]
I've tried writing this several times, and each time I just delete it, but i'll try again.

There was this guy, he always tried to be good to others, respect others, and help those when needed. He was lucky to meet a beautiful girl his last year of college. Blonde German girl who was visiting the states. They began dating and everything was perfect. She loved his parents and he loved her parents. He even went fishing with her Father a few times. Whenever she was happy next to him she would say, "wunderbar"... Wunderbar became their little word they said to each other. When they snuggled on the couch, "wunderbar", When they went out hiking, "wunderbar", when they kissed each other, "wunderbar", after they made love... "wunderbar"

They both loved being outdoors together, and eventually, one cool morning on a trail under grove of oak trees, he asked her to marry him. She cried with joy at the proposal; kissing him, hugging him, and jumping into his arms wrapping her legs around him saying "yes! wunderbar!! yes!!, yes!!".

They set the wedding date a year later. Both of them are working now; starting their careers. She as a kindergarten teacher, and him for a good company. Every weekend and holidays they would plan hikes and camping trips together.

They were happy.

Moral of story, don't put so much on things you can lose. This includes your own life. Some people live in fear of failure or death and never allow themselves to live.

It depends exclusively on the weather and were I'm hiking.

Have them tailored for you or learn to do it yourself.

I often just wear shorts + knee high socks. the further down the leg you go the warmer you are, while the part close to your body that gets enough warmth from the body can cool down.

While I do not have the $ to enable my own participation, it sure is cozy to see all of you faggots getting each other things. It's the most wholesome thing on this dang near God forsaken website, and says a lot about /out/ oriented people.

Only took one bag to inflate kek

Used to be bright blue and now if I go to bed on it fully inflated i might as well be sleeping on the ground so it was time for an upgrade

Definitely heavier and bulkier but a whole heck of a lot more comfortable
has an R value of 5.3 so also a hecking lot warmer

Also, feels less "plasticy" to lay on
And the inflation bag is magic, can't wait to get it /out/
Enjoy your United ridges of backpain. Like I said earlier in the thread, I had 2 Synmats with failing seams so far.
Considering the beating the lite UL has taken over the years i am not worried. But thanks!
