    But it could be the same thing in Mom's basement in Springfield. Every state has a Springfield, just pick one.

    Yelling down the stairs. "Billy!!! Are you smoking again?!"
    Cough, sputter, waving hand around. "No, mom. I told you I don't smoke."
    "Take the trash out when you finish playing."
    "I'm 23 mom. I don't play. I'm designing!"
    "Of course you are dear. Don't forget the trash."
    "What....ever."

    I was surprised the last time I saw the first Die Hard recently - had assumed that it would seem dated, or seem cheesy or gimmicky in some way. But it was still pretty good. Qualifies as a movie that will still be good many years later.

    Iíve been exploring the Patagonia region for three years now. Kayaking, hiking, you name it.

    Thereís plenty of uncharted and unsupervised land out there, that's no news. The problem with all of them is the same. Settling in protected areas is illegal. Not in the going-to-prison sense, but in the kick-you-out one. And in Argentina, it is very worth it to play with those odds. So you make your list of favourite spots based on this, and that's why I did. Sites close enough to civilization that bringing stuff in and out doesn't set off any alarms, and far enough that you won't ruin your cover by the smoke coming from your fireplace or the sound of your rooster.

    Hereís the secret: The reason so many sites are uncharted and thus unprotected, is reaching them is almost imposible. Patagonia forests are convered by this invasive species called Chusquea culeou, making it harder to make three steps without finding yourself trapped between walls of bamboos.

    Being a third world country, rangers arenít paid enough, nor there isnít enough of them to cover the huge protected area Argentina has, even less to make their way through this crowded vegetation that grows down south.

    Thereís practically unlimited land to be gained over there. But in order to transform it, plenty of effort needs to be put into it. Getting rid of that bamboo and fallen trees requires massive ammount of work, I canít overstate this enough!

    This is part of the reason Iím here. Given how amazing I think this experience will be, I would love to share it with like minded people. Iím here to offer myself for guidance and as a partner in crime to create our own personal little paradise.

    Iím an experienced gardener, I have all the crops and plantations planned out. Of course almost nothing can be sow until a few acres of forest have been cleared. I have made several cabins throughout my whole life and Iím currently researching and reading everyday to improve on this craft.

    Iím also an argentinian national and know perfectly how to get around everywhere without getting into trouble. Iím 29 years old, above all things Iím an idealist, and intellectual, and due to high moral principles is that I canít be a part of this corrupted society anymore.

    ---

    Ideally I would like to start only with a few people, any plans for a larger community will have to wait until some space is created. Not all tasks in camp will require intense physical exertion, though being fit and trained is a must to live for longer periods of time in the wild.

    Plans are for the summer of 2016, south hemisphere summer. Using the long, warm and dry days we should be able to have a few cabins built and a few acres of land cleared by autumn, just in time to sow our first crop of wheat and winter rye. Not to mention all the vegetables that can be grown during summer. The rest of supplies will have to come from the city. Anyone interested should join with a budget to cover air travel, supplies for at least a few years until total self reliance can be achieved, expenses for tools.. etc.

    Above anything else, I'm looking for open minded, tolerant, peaceful, and optimistic people. This is not an escape plan from society, this is a plan to create something different.
    This is not a romantic endeavour either, nor a hippie loving take on life. This is serious work and will to create our own order from scratch.

    Willing to discuss any further ideas, suggestions and answer questions.
    Yeah thanks, Crash....didn't want to lose this one......

    Now that is just not right Rick, telling a guy he has no annals!

    BTW, how do you check to see if you have any annals?
