    Plenty of wilderness in Texas and Florida swamps. Been there and seen it. Just more of it in Alaska.

    Such bravado. He knew us so well. He sure didn't last long....for a survivor. One more troll bites the dust.

    Well it might not be a good idea when these people blatantly describe themselves as trolls.

    Just a thought.

    I love it when someone reads a book, proclaims how the world should be then labels everyone else pseudoexperts. One more basement dweller notched on my katana.

    The guy was an amateur. The best Trolls don't have to tell tell anyone they're a Troll.

    Of course if you see a Piper Cub with Alaska plates circling your house later......

    You know he's been tossed from more than one forum when he proclaims forums "devolve into good ole boy clubs". The whole world is wrong but him.

    I would do a reality show, but only for the money. Of course, folks would likely switch channels to the home shopping network within five min of the first episode....

    I don't know how much interest there is in watching a fat guy on diuretics work around the house. But, it's reality!

    Only television would gather a group of people together (who don't know each other), put them on an island, have them vote on who leaves, give the last one cash, and call it "Reality".

If a portion of the land will be transferred eventually, what is the land worth today. These questions may be a bit invasive, but the better applicants will want details. Good luck.
    But it jumps out to me that you left out one basic piece that somebody will want to know before they even pick up the telephone: money. I imagine if you were offering to pay somebody, then you'd have said so. So this is an unpaid apprenticeship? Everybody needs a little money, no matter how thoroughly independent you are (even Pa Ingalls bought salt and coffee, right?). So your apprentices will need a city job, too? Or is it something else, like a profit-share arrangement? You mentioned "make a living with the farm," so that suggests you all produce something that you sell, right? There's money coming in to the farm; is your apprentice getting any of that?
