Resilient Ways: Imagine a free world …

We might have found our PHASE 1 property! (but I don’t want to get too excited)

Resiliently share this:

I don’t want to jinx it … I’m a rational guy, but I have some superstition about “good luck” … I suppose I expect to “have nothing good” in this life – certainly nothing good that lasts. This is the best I’ve felt in a long time, and I feel like my heart has started beating again – and seeing this piece of land, and speaking to its owners was energizing … that’s all I can say about that. (without incurring the wrath of the fates)

Homeschool Resources

Resiliently share this:

Homeschool is Freedom One of the most important aspects of creating a free society is education choice. Homeschool and private schools are gaining a lot of traction, something many of us are excited to see. Not only do they afford a better education, but, in the case of home schools, one that is without the standard indoctrination that comes with every public school experience. Homeschoolers Do Better The benefits to homeschool are more than just freedom. Studies have shown that students who homeschool do better in college than their public school peers. Students coming from a home school graduated college

My anarchy (continued) …

Resiliently share this:

Several months ago, just after I abandoned the Libertarian Party, I began thinking about my own anarchism – what it meant to me, the decision. Here is a link to that article (as PDF) … I don’t want to reiterate too much of that, but to simply give you an update, of sorts. I have been, since the end of 2016 and until quite recently, in a very dark place regarding the “human condition” and freedom. In many ways, choosing to recognize that I was an anarchist, that I was free – no matter what the state might want to

Last day in Hocking County, this trip …

Resiliently share this:

Jim and I (Dan Sullivan) have surveyed some of the area. This morning we had a decent trek (small hike) through some property off of 664 – 17 acres, currently being used as a laser-tag site. It is likely outside our price-range, but it gave us a sense of what to expect. The second property we looked at, further north-east, was beautiful and not far from what we think we can fund for our first site. 22 acres (roughly), a nice brick house and other features. Plenty of land, quiet road, and beautiful vistas. It might also be too much

Bush's Diner

Logan, Ohio area recommendations

Resiliently share this:

The food and service at Bush’s diner in Logan, Ohio are excellent. The food is good home-cooked favourites like barbecued boneless ribs, broasted chicken breast, bacon and eggs, and Boston creme pie. Everything is prepared well, the food is cooked to order, and it is obvious that the people in the kitchen and the wait staff really care about the results. Dan gave this restaurant 5 stars in his Google review, and I’ve eaten enough meals with Dan to know that he isn’t at all frivolous with his ratings. Another great result was at the Inn Towner Lodge in Logan.

At Home in the Hocking Hills

Resiliently share this:

Today the Resilient Ways Foundation team of Dan Sullivan and Jim Davidson arrived in the Hocking Hills. It is excellent country, well positioned geographically and demographically, and already bears a few dozen tourist destinations. People seem comfortable coming here from many states around the country. We saw licence tags from Virginia, New York, and other states. It is also a good spot for local vacationers, who seem to know and love the area. We found many cabins and lodges that were “full up” for the weekend. That’s excellent for our business plans, since we anticipate having rooms to let, as

A Chicken’s Value

Resiliently share this:

Chickens are a great first farm animal to invest in. They have a variety of uses that go beyond simple egg laying. Beyond their value, they are also easy to care for, requiring little space and less food and maintenance than other livestock. Owning chickens is a great first step to self-sufficiency. Urban chicken farms have proven that with a small deck, patio, or backyard you can cultivate both meat and egg laying hens. Hens not only provide eggs and meat but also eat bugs and worms that can destroy a back yard. And, depending on the breed, you can
