So guys, I live in Boise, ID and I had a sudden realization. There is an insanely large chunk of land of just nothing Between Eastern Oregon, Southwest Idaho, and Northern Nevada.
No seriously, aside from an Indian Reservation, and a few towns of ten people. there's absolutely nothing there!
It's because there's no water. And since there's no one for miles around, how would one go about surviving and dicking around out there?
tl;dr - How would one go about surviving in the Owyhee Canyonlands?
Could this be fertile ground for a MGTOW mancamp?
We could make MGTOW cliff dwellings in the canyons and graze our goats on the plains.
Land is cheap. $100 to $500 an acre but that's because the government has taken all the good land for themselves.
It's bigger than most European countries but you basically are not allowed to go there, from bombing ranges in Idaho to wildlife preserves in Oregon and Nevada.
The patriot standoff in Burns is part of this area. Humans are to be banished from this land unless you are a government worker whose job is to keep out US citizens.
I wonder if the Patriots would be willing to ally themselves with the MGTOW
Yes. The population of these areas is so low that you could easily take over a town or county with a few dozen neets.
Heck you could probably buy this old town
I hope your cult turns out better than this one where they tried to take over Wasco county Oregon
How did OP know this area would be in the news today?
Nothing of interest has happened there in 100 years or more.
>but that's because the government has taken all the good land for themselves.
m8, there is no "good land" here apart from the odd creek that still exists and the natural resources underground. It's thousands and thousands of miles of butt-fucking nothing.
Is there really that little water there? You all make it sound like a parched desert...it might be that there isn't enough water to support large settlements and agriculture, but maybe there's little pockets of water here and there that could support /out/town. The fucking indians didn't have water tankers. There must be ways of surviving here.
>You all make it sound like a parched desert.
That's because it is a parched desert you fucking retard
>The fucking indians didn't have water tankers
That's why the fucking Indians didn't live there you dumb fuck.

I passed through Boise in my hippie van last year. Did not get to spend much time though.
Is that place as cool as it seems?
People seemed pretty nice and that fucking sky was incredible.
the folks are awesome, couple of raging hippie fags and stoners wandering around, but other than that folks are pretty rad and friendly. its a wonderful place, best way to describe it is like the town in Napoleon dynamite had a kid with Portland
I used to live near Lakeview.
>not allowed to go there
I dunno what you're going on about, it's mostly public land. I suppose there is the occasional DoD land but it's pretty minuscule compared to all the BLM and USFS holdings.
I live in the eastern US now but I get nostalgic for the high desert despite the fact of how ugly it seems. Like I miss the dry heat and perennial streams surrounded by cottonwood trees and willows. There's also good chukar hunting in the desert.
Isn't that about what they get in New Mexico, where those earth ships are?
If we followed the same practices of recycling water and building earth burms over the houses, it should be just as viable. Maybe ship in a little water, but with those land prices, I know homeless people that could afford to do this.
I'm from the NY in Colorado now and I miss the forest and green fields and rivers and I like it the most in late April through Early June.
>I miss the forest and green fields and rivers
You honestly dont prefer the wide open spaces?
The ability to see for miles and miles and that huge sky?
I could never go back east again for any length of time.
All those trees just make me feel trapped.
I dont even spend much time in the thicker forests here on the western slope for that reason.
This is totally doable... somebody could make a lot of money renting lots where people harvest their own water and grow their own food. Let people live there for free if they help build "Katrina houses" to sell or rent to New residents.
The way he says dew...it sounds like he is saying jew.
The Indians were in the fucking stone age until the white man came by, they absolutely did not have wells. Especially since they could roam a couple hundred miles in any direction and have plenty of water.
FUCK. So My Volvo Essentially decided to Michael J Fox while I was driving and a huge ass rock clipped most of the bottom, and long story short power steering is fucked. I might be able to borrow a friend's truck and continue my expedition but if the thread dies I'll make a new one. Sorry to disappoint you guys but it might be a while.
I'm with you anon, I spent 6 months in wyoming and missed deciduous forests so much. Nice big shade trees, creeks everywhere, SONG BIRDS. The west might be more spectacular but the east is where its at.
