No matter how logical it is for us to be prepared for an emergency, our supplies sit on a shelf collecting dust, waiting to be used, hoping they will never be needed. We can train, practice, educate ourselves and stockpile all we want, but it may or may not be needed. What if there was a way to prep AND enjoy the fruits of your labor at the same time? Preparations that would be beneficial to and usable by you and your family/clan even if no emergency ever happens? We have a plan to make this a reality, and it can be as much fun as it is work.
Stage 1 of the plan is to assemble the group. The project can begin once there are at least 5 members, and there will be a maximum of 20 members. Once we have the first 5 members we can begin setting up the business plan and develop the policy and procedure of the group. Once the group is comfortable with all the legalities we can begin stage 2.
Stage 2 is the development of the land for survival and sustainability. We already have the land, it is 40 acres in the San Luis Valley of Colorado north east of Alamosa by the Great Sand Dunes, and it is completely paid off. Each member will get 1/4 acre to set up as they please with campers, trailers, RVs, 5th wheels, buses, trucks and/or vans, enough to house their family/clan and all their supplies. Members will develop their own site for an emergency arrival and long term sustainability, and will be working with the other members to develop the 40 acres for community sustainability. We need to build a toilet/shower/laundry facility, radio shack, greenhouses and garden beds, chicken coops and rabbit pens, power generation, recreation center, horseshoe pits, kid’s playground and everything else needed for sustainability and sanity. Members will not permanently live on the site, but may use it for camping and recreation as often as they like, for as long as they like.
Currently we are in stage 1, and we are seeking members to begin the project. There are no skill requirements to join, the only thing we require is that members work hard, participate with the development of the land, are capable of working independently AND capable of being a team player. There will be no free rides, all members will put in their fair share. This group will NOT be religious, political, a militia, separatists, anti-government, artists, vegans or any kind of exclusive theme, or absolutely no extremism of any kind. There will be no discrimination against age, race, sex, color, nationality, religion, political affiliation, sexual orientation, financial status, appearance, disability or any other reason. I take that back, we will discriminate against laziness, complacency, stubbornness, selfishness, lack of participation or any reason that is counter-productive to the group.
