    That's the one.
    The pessimist complains about the wind;
    The optimist expects it to change;
    The realist adjusts the sails.

    Hopefully he has a glass belly button so he can see where he's going.

    Wow, now I've heard it all. Ever hear of Jonestown?

    You're also advocating breaking the law, and bribing officials. What is wrong with you?

    Building a town in the Wilderness is a lot different then day hiking or even a week long camping trip. It's a lot different then a single guy living in a cabin in the woods. The expertise to get water, create your own electricity, plumbing, etc? What happens if someone gets hurt? What if someone gets sick? What if sickness spreads What is your plan for sanitation?

    That's just the beginning of the list of problems.

    Food production, safety from animals, supplies of tools and equipment, what are you going to build your settlement out of?

    Remember how much trouble the colonists had settling the New World? You'll have the same problems even in modern day.

    I hear ya.....
    Different forum(what?) just had a guy with a "free land in Alaska"......was thinking of the this thread.

    Seems the blanket approach "hit as many locations as possible" is still popular.
