Yeah I'm interested. Send updates on what the scouts say? I'm far out now but could end up on the east coast.

I'm in Ohio heading that way idk if I'm going to scout it or just go for it. Few 50 lb bags of rice and beans, 5lbs of salt and a cook pot should just about do the trick

I have been thinking I have been thinking a lot about this island thing and I'm still going to do it and it's still a good idea but I realized I have no idea how long it takes for a fucking tomato to mature let alone some corn so I'm probably just going to go out there with a bunch of people and some big bags of cheap rice and beans it will still have a really great time and if you want to plant things or build things that's okay but I just thought maybe it would be cool to set up a sweat log and make a big art piece out of all the trash we cleaned up off the beaches and it also sounds a lot more of a realistic goal

Tomatoes take a while - seeds started inside now, planted in May would fruit by August. Greens are fast, can be harvested within a few weeks. Growing near salt water can be a challenge too. Maybe construct a greenhouse of sorts - plastic sheeting and some lumber...good luck!!

Okay here I am. Cape Cod Massachusetts. Easy part is done. The trek is over the real journey begins now. This is a retirement home I'm working towards here. A home we can take to 70% of the planets surface! I'm ready. Need a floating family of brave care free souls to help make this happen. Who wants to see Australia?

Plan A. I'm getting a job. Reading up on sailing, navigation, maritime law, weather, ocean currents, anything I can find. to get down basic mechanics and tour local islands I'll rent or borrow small boats or beg my way into anything with a sail to learn more. Aquire a boat big enough to circumnavigate the globe and be the best pirate and adventurer I can be.

Plan B. Enforcing plan A. Scroll up incase you missed it.

If any of you are really serious and want to really do this. Now is a good time to get to Cape Cod. It's beginning now. I won't waste time and I really want as many people who are passionate about doing this to help realize the dream with me from the start. Floating family situation. I am no leader and don't seek to be a commander or monarch. Collective cooperation for the overall good of a group with common goals.
