I am investigating the possiblity of forming what they used to call a "hippie commune". Inspiration for the idea comes from Rob Roy's book titled "Mortgage Free".
Basically the idea is to find/bring together a group of 10-20 like-minded individuals/families to purchase a tract of land which would ordinarily be out of reach for any of us as individuals, but group buying power gets us all our own little slice of heaven. The primary focus of the search will be SE'n TN, W'n NC/SC, N'n AL/GA.
I will be placing ads in several national magazines; Mother Earth News, The Backwoodsman, Back Home Magazine, Country Living, and The Grit to name a few. If you are familiar with the book and the magazines then you have an idea of what kind of community I am attempting to establish. I'm still working on the details of the initial response letter I will send to folks who express an interest. But if you are interested more details you can reach me here
