Thanks for the update. I was wondering about you just the other day.

@TeranNotTerran I mostly lurk or sockpuppet on voat anymore, but I was wondering how this project was going since we had this: https://voat.co/v/NewCountryProject/760881; discussion a few years ago. Since that discussion I have periodically checked this sub and the other to see any progress or difficulties or experiences you've had with this. Funnily enough you've chimed in on some of my sockpuppet comments from time-to-time out in the voat wilderness, as we occasionally have similar ideas about a few things. I may post here later as I've continued to think about this project since our discussion and there's some evolution on points/ideas that may be worthwhile to mention.

Even if you may not feel entirely successful about Van Horn from time-to-time, I will say that it's a commendable effort nonetheless and I'm glad to see you've continued to follow/push through despite some setbacks or slow progress. As there are plenty of people on this site who claim to want the same thing and with greater resources at their disposal and never end up pulling the trigger.

Thank you! I really appreciate that.

I'm fortunate to have a line of work that enables me to be pretty flexible. Trying to get my feet wet in a number of areas. Just got my amateur radio license, looking forward to trying that out in Van Horn.

I feel like I've been out to the gulch just reading this, thanks

Very cool.

Do you live there now or only use it for vacations?

I think if you want to attract more people you have to think about how it will work.

Would they be buying an unofficial subdivision from you, buy their own adjacent land or just stay on your property?

More like a fallback and storage property for now.

They would buy land in the area. Not really anyone else out there.

  1. How will you work together if your properties are not connected?
  2. You never found land I could buy so presumably it is not so easy.
  3. 10 acres per person seems wasteful. You would be very spread out making it hard to cooperate even with adjacent properties.
  4. Such a system would rely entirely on the existing system which seems a moot point.

You’re looking for more goats, you say?
