I really want to just be a fuckin part of a fuckin community instead of just doing nothing all the time but studying, consuming, and masturbating, you know? Really dig my hands into the dirt, and help contribute to a tribe of people bigger than myself, and feel like a man contributing to the tribe.

Except, where the fuck do I go? There's so many to choose from.

If it helps:

- I have $2,000 in travel money
- I'm curious about American Indian cultures
- Would prefer to go out West, would go to Central/South America if I knew I could afford it

I know Kentucky walker suggested Astral Valley, and I still need to check them out, but I'm curious as to what else is out there, as well.

Website can totally go to Central/South America with $2,000! Just did a search and found backpacker blogs that said you'd spend an average of $25 to $40 per day to live comfortably with food/transport/hostel bed, depending on which countries you go to.

I second highwayman's post. Adding to that you could look up on IC what communities are near you or are in a state that you're interested in visiting.

Since your in the SE you could check out Acorn (in Virginia). It's known as the anarchist offshoot of Twin Oaks and I've met a few cool people who have stayed/lived there.

You could also look into what indigenous-led resistance projects are looking for on the ground support. There are definitely some kicking off rn.

Also yeah I agree w Koala 2k is plenty for some time in South America if that's what your wanting

Time to research Acorn, too. As well as preparing to go to South America.

Total amount

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $25.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $25.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $25.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $25.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
