Yep, that's me... I look more like a Gypsy Joker bikie with my tattoo's and long hair than a permaculture person, I play heavy metal guitar and produce doof for a living and I am sure if you saw me walk down the street you would either be feeling for your wallet or crossing the rd. The only thing I learnt to grow I gave up smoking ten years ago Yet here I am craving the simple life, one away from city lights and masses of robotic clones. I have no clue to what I am doing really, I am renowned for winging an idea (usually with better than expected results) so this is all being written/directed/produced on the fly My philosophy has always been a simple one and that is you only ever learn to swim in the deep end. I am not one to sit back and ponder the idea, if I don't jump in, something else usually comes along and it is either put on the back burner or forgotten. As some here know I was going to buy some land and try start a community however plans changed and I manged to score two 1/4 blocks in NSW dirt cheap which seemed more realistic and more importantly doable now. I haven't seen either block (she'll be right mate) but for the price I bought them at ($13950 for both) I figure I can't really lose out, if and when I move on I can either sell them cheap or hang onto them for places to escape to. One block is mins away from Lake Cowall and the other is a stones throw from Billabong Creek, neither blocks have services that I am aware of but I am not looking to be a part of anything the system has to offer bar the essentials, like internet. I have zero experience in anything that is remotely rural, my thing has always been yachts in urban scenes, a part of the view rather than having one. The ability to shift whenever I pleased. This is a life changing experience for me, something just clicked and I went this is all bullshit, I don't want to work my ring off all my life paying off a house and participating in keeping up with the jones's for nothing. I feel like I would be selling myself short so here I am delving into unchartered territory, please be patient with me as most of what I will be asking will seem silly but I am a fast learner and enthusiastic. Nice to meet you all, I am sure I will learn many things from you so thank you in advance.
