Hello Everyone.
I'm creating an off the grid farm in SouthEast Queensland, Australia with large orchards, vegetables and dams.
I'm at 600m above sea level, living in the clouds, with beautiful views of mountains, surrounded by colourful birds, thousands of acres of state forest, national park and rock pools to swim in close by.
I'm a Machinist, Diesel Fitter and Blacksmith and enjoy using my hands to build and repair things.
I love permaculture, syntropic agroforestry, ancient trees(my blog- dinosaurtree.blogspot.com), regular trees, plants, beekeeping, ecology, learning about and photographing wild birds and animals, culture, anthropology, history, astronomy/star gazing, philosophy, swimming in wild places, through hiking, exploring(I've travelled globally), all types of music/collecting records, vintage hifi, motorbikes, four wheel drives and I also play guitar.

I was born in 1981 and was once an Australian soldier(serving at times in various idiotic oil wars). Now that's all behind me, I work as a Mechanical Fitter in heavy industry every now and then(in power stations, on trains etc), to pay for the trees and seeds I plant, manure for the trees, the mulch I can't grow myself and fuel for the 4wd. I plan to run my own business when the food orchard is established. I hope to have chickens, ducks(I have a duck deficiency) and pigs one day.

I've met some wonderful women, but many seem to be obsessed with pseudo scientific medical pursuits like kinesiology, various shades of woo woo or other strange conspiracy like ideas. It seems that for many people, a love of nature and a love for spurious drivel or pseudoscience seem to be a co-occurring phenomenon.
This is highly unfortunate, as I think a life enjoyed with a person who doesn't follow the teachings of witch doctors, flat earthists, homeopaths and star sign oracles would really be a hell of a lot of fun!!

Regards and Best Wishes to All, Richard

Some of my Values-
I guess one of my main values is the use of inquiry, knowledge and lived experience to evaluate what others say, and using those tools to form my own opinions about a subject before readily accepting someone else's. That goes for centre left, right and mainstream media. I guess it's what some would call exercising a level of objectivity.

I aim to hold truth and knowledge as paramount above any sort of political correctness. I think if more people wanted to learn more about everything in their world as well as each other, the human sphere would be a much happier, less violent place.

We are just a small part of nature, not it's overlords. Without it, we have nothing and are nothing. A world in which the best financial decision is aligned with the best ecological one could really be something, especially on a planet with finite resources and a dominant species living the lie of unlimited financial growth.

Apart from that, I guess love, friendship, family, treating others(humans, trees and animals) as you'd like to be treated, respect for each other and creating a society where people can live free of needless violence and persecution are some other things that i value.

I value our miraculous world and existence, with it's platinum sunrises, sunsets, towering forests, colourful birds and butterflies, soaring clouds, lightning, and the glow of an ancient cosmos above. I feel very lucky to have eventuated and to have been born, out of every other possibility. It really is so much better than winning the lottery.

Hopefully not too deep. Just wanting to be straight up.

Good day Richard,

How goes it down under?
I just want to say hi…although I live too far away…I enjoyed reading your profile. I would love to chat about all the things…although I must ask how crazy is it where you are…with the “shot” and all that???
I was just telling a friend the other day about wanting to go to my teachers and live there because they have it all dialed in, but the cities are crazy?
Traveling seems to be out of the picture.

Who knows though….maybe it will all calm down?
You had your fun. Now it's time to go to jail. Thanks for your help tiny ad.
