Tree Fort Tribes
    #11384392 - 11/04/09 04:16 PM (7 years, 11 months ago)

There are hippies on Vancouver island who live in tree forts and live off the land mostly.  Someone I know had the pleasure of staying with them for a while.  Networks of tree forts and lots of fishing and growing mushrooms.

I would love to live this way, if I had a tribe.  Would you? (it doesn't have to be a hippie tribe)

i would love to live in a tribe, society isn't cuttin it for me.
growing weed and shrooms there would be a plus, just sitting around a fire and smoking pot and eating mushrooms, sounds like heaven to me.

I can't recall the exact name, but there are still sustenance hunter gatherer tribes in Africa. They devote ~8hrs/week to food related work.. I suppose if you were someone inclined to spend the rest of their time growing and consuming weed and shrooms than it could be a pretty good lifestyle :P

Why would having lots of free time only be about consuming weed & shrooms?

What about exercising, having sex, meditating, making music :shrug:

Yeh I'd have to try it really, part of me says yes I'd love it and part of me says I'm just idealistic and it would be just the same but with less to do unless i sorted my head out.

AND connecting with nature.  Van Island has some :thumbup: nature.  Not to mention great fishing.  I could fish all day.

Same, pretty much.  I would miss my hard drive full of music.  But the thought of being around nature 24/7 is a nice one.  It would most likely calm my mind, so I wouldn't need much to do. Just be.

Your mind settles in nature after a while. We are so used to constant bombardment of sensory impressions that we get starved in silence. Everybody wants to be entertained out of habit. But after a while this settles and we tune in. Then our mind suddenly comes up with new ideas and new ways to look at things because we left some space open for it to bubble up into instead of keeping it filled with outside trash.

I'd love to try that lifestyle. I also love moving to different cities to feel and see the differences, but there is a silence in nature that is heals us from stress.

To experiment and to keep uprooting work for me. It allows me to re-invent myself again and again.

Well I am in Canada at the moment with a VISA that lasts until April so just come on over. :grin:

I lived in your hometown (London, right?) for three months a few years ago. Wicked place indeed, but people are crazy and stressed especially in the subway-stations. Haha it was weird to see how they all ran all over eachother and pushed others down to get ahead.

Although the psy-trance scene there was pure Love. :smile:

The more I see of the world the more grateful I am for having grown up in a small place deep inside the fjords of Norway between beautiful mountains and awesome pure water streams. I feel more more connected to my roots back there when I am out travelling and have even started to see the beauty in the old folk culture and fiddle folk music that I used to find so ridiculous when I was younger.

Of course such a place has its' own difficulties, but that's another story. :smile:

Gimme a ring.  If you actually do, come when shambhala music festival is happening.  Great nature up by Nelson.  It's so damn beautiful up there.

Well, I'm in central Canada at the moment. The winters get insane here, but it's okay.

The weed is up there with the highest quality Amsterdam weed that you find at barney's and grey area (if you are familiar with that).

We have a jar of some super potent sativa in the closet, but I have stayed sober for almost three weeks to break a habit. :laugh:

Please excuse my rambling.
