I do as well...
« on: January 09, 2019, 01:09:13 PM »
The guy has a perfect life in my opinion. Amazing little homestead. Simple, peaceful, and natural. I have always liked small places as well. I too built forts and little hidy holes to sleep in as a kid.
It is a 30 minute video but so very well spent. A sauna, shower, and riverside dock= heaven. I hope to retire similarly to this man.(hobo)

I like the property from a location and terrain standpoint. The river running through it is a big plus.  His lifestyle isn't one for me but there are a few aspects of his buildings that are kind of appealing.  I like the way they are built into the hillside but would prefer one building and that it be built with normal ceiling heights, normal sized doors, and in one large space as opposed to scattered about.  It also would have to have a better water and sewage system.  I do like the stream side sauna.  His choice of materials for what passes as a patio in the front of one of the structures is also good.

If one is inclined towards a very simple lifestyle this place would certainly work, at least until the property owner decides not to lease it to him.

He might have a screw loose. Took downsizing a little too serious. I kind of like the out house setup. Funny the outhouse and the shop are full height.

I couldn't be crawling around like that. It wouldn't take much to go 3 more feet high.

Pretty accusatory of you, Moe.....what if Yashihiz is just a poor, homeless Hobbit legitimately looking to improve his lot in life? :shrug:

Then he can go back to the Shire or hang out in Mordor for all I care.

How is that racist?   :-\

(Somewhere in the bowels of the dark web I just got put on a list that says "once accused of racism" for wanting a fictional character from a 70 odd year old book to go back to his homeland or at least close to it.)

I doubt that the powers that be are paying too much attention to ANYTHING posted on this forum.  They would eventually die of boredom waiting for a new post some days!  Your name is on that list just below mine, I suspect.....I got put on the list when I called Eric Holder the largest member of the weasel family. 8)  :cheers:

So you got on a list for telling the truth?  That is great.   :thumbsup:

There is a lot of anglo germatic celto-indo- european mythos wrapped up in JRRT. Any counter-signal against it, has a certain, or should have attached to it a ....a , eh certain level of racism... For the sake of argument: let's say you really like a cultish religion borne from a a desert people. Does it really profit you when your ancestors were born in deep forests of ancient trees of snow and ice, with brief summers?

I don't. Where I live now there are thickets, fence rows,. There is savanna and plains. It is racisist to be anti- Tolkien ; why wouldn't it be? Because some autistic dude makes a video? Read the books, grow a long bearsd, wear a cowboy hat- its all much the same

Did I not read what was first said: gosh; I wonder
...don't go thinking you know me.

  Hey Unk, you're wandering again.

  BTW, I never considered you unruly,  confusing a little at times, but otherwise pretty civil.

No loss there Wolfy, it was probably gathering data so telemarketers could nag you about car warranties, credit card debt repair, and a host of other things you don't need or didn't have a problem with in the first place.

I, for one, am wondering why the do not call list is so damned ineffective at stopping the lowest form of scum except for some members of congress we have in this country.
