I think if we do our networking right, we can get a shit-ton of manpower and maybe some machinery or equipment for this kind of endeavor.

Would you guys like me to look into it?

What kind of machinery are we talking about?

What do we want? If we're serious about this endeavor, I will spend days on the phone and writing emails when the time comes and try to get what we need for as close to free as possible.

I was thinking back-hoe, forklift, cement mixer, shovels and picks, etc. Again, what do we want?

Yeah, like vov said there's no rush since it'll be 5 years until this commune starts.  Cement mixers shovels and pics would be usefull.  I was just worried that you meant farming equiptment like combines and planters.

I talked to my friend about the concept of a combine. For 20 acres, a combine is a ridiculous investment, it seems.

I think we should develop LAZER SICKLES! Okay, I'm totally just kidding.

But maybe we should seriously begin looking into larger land? That way if we built a 3000ft. wide by 3000ft. long by really really deep compound, we still have room for a well or two!

Yeah that's why I was hoping you weren't planning on getting a combine.  Well I am going to look into getting another 26 acres.  Half a mile by half mile?  What would we do with that much compound.

Again, 36 acres is about 65 square miles...WAY bigger than you think!  You guys are off by a factor of 10!!!

No a combine is not ridiculous!

As for building underground, our most useful items will be simply shovels and pickaxes...  And concrete mixers...once we get going, we'll need at least two or three!
