Spent a little over a decade in the military, then decided to find fulfillment in life. Now I'm preparing to build a permaculture-ish community in Eastern TN by 2020. It's a lot of money and legal loopholes to work through, hence the long time out.

I like what you're doing Paul. You seem to be back up to a solid speed and consistency. I think maybe you lost a big chunk of folks when you went dark on the podcasts for a while. I know I lost track in that timeframe and am just getting back, what is it, a year later? It takes time to build that niche audience back up. I like what you're doing with my money and I think others will, with consistency.

These are all amazing ideas and implementation of any that work for you will improve your position.

In terms of spam, I just joke a bit as they send a Quite a few emails at the outset and it seems daily in how to improve your account. You know, the overflowing email anxiety and yelling, "why are you sending me crap", because you can't get to it all.

Thanks for  all the great work!
Dude! That's solid, I especially love the 5 minutes coffee idea. Might try that one myself.
You mean you're not getting their spam?! So from what I'm seeing as successful with some other Patreon  folks is just consistent content with a small ad at the end ask folks to check them out on Patreon.

I.e. I always forget to check yours out, as I've been meaning to for months and I got onto a podcast this week and remembered to subscribe after listening to a podcast. The consistency will folks coming back, we love your work too much to stay away.
This would be like network marketing except nobody has to buy anything. I market gold and silver on facebook. Just a post with a nice picture pulls quite a few views. Also I am a big Ron Paul supporter so I just put in a post here and there throughout our long feeds of news articles to get a pile of views. Of all those views you'll get a couple people who are interested and a couple of those who are actually willing to act.
I would be extremely interested as long as I could bring my family. I can't leave the wife and kids in the toxic environment I want to escape from. I would need time though since the millitary works in 4-6the year contracts. If this land were far enough out where surrounding land owners would be willing to sell adjacent parcels for the expansion of lifers it would be near perfect. If I can't participate in this I sure would like to know what works so I could someday start my own.

With a few years to plan, I'd be there as a 10, too bad these opportunities don't just wait around.

Where is good land at a moderate price without sky high property tax? I know PA is way too high in taxes making unusable especiallly since Gov. Pat Toomey just gave the marcellus shale company tax free status to destry our ground water. In my search for food producing forest land I can't seem to find a good economically friendly destination.

Please explain more about this move into forestry. I have about $20,000 coming to me next year and I'm looking for a good place to put it since being in the millitary I'm moving nonstop and see no reason to buy a home when I'll be leaving in 3 years.

Maybe a non-profit with some simple dictations of the land use in the sales contract.

I have had to cut a deer's throat once and watch it gargle on it's last bit of blood, I don't ever want to do that again. I agree that a bullet to the head is the best. 22 has worked fine for my purposes of killing sheep and putting down pets.
I would just like to announce my now sick stomach thanks to though I think I'll continue getting my meat, just from a butcher I know. I really have to wonder what those employees do to people. I thought people who abused animals were frequently serial killers and rapists. Disturbing either way.

glad we agree mostly.  my little disagreement hinges on the word 'capitalist'.  i don't care for it & it means different things (salatin clearly is using capitalism-1).  see the following three definitions:

Well I'm pretty sure we're all with you on the 2&3, but it is ever crucial to differentiate and showcase the freedom aspect. I have seen it all too common where freedom, capitalism and corpratism are all bunched together w/ Bush and Obama to make the boogey man. This is a huge can of worms dare I say, as always it boils down to knowledge and the fact that the average person cares more about ashton kutcher than their freedom to care about it or their freedom to not eat toxic waste. Infiltrate the video games and you've won the battle.
