Living Outside Of The System - Developing Decentralized Living

in #esteli5 months ago

When I first thought of leaving the USA for real was around 2003 when I made my first trip to Panama City in the republic of Panama.

I fell in love with the culture right away.

Not all of the culture of course.

There is always the Yen & Yang of life but the more personal freedom, accesible corruption ($10 went a long way back then), and the no snow; were the things that greatly drew me to Panama but the heat was over bearing at times.

Night Life In Panama In 2003

A nice dinner for two at a nice sit down place back in 2003 with an extra 10% tip was under $60USD

Going out to the casino with stakes as low as $5USD and it was actually one of the nicest casinos in the city.

That and feeling relatively secure walking back to my hotel after a winning $3,000 session at the tables was my big nudge to consider Panama.

Life of a gambler...LOL...my wins are long gone and gave up gambling completely a while back.

I was in the financial district staying at the Marriot, which has since added on a casino, and the rate was about $80 per night.

Every building I walked past had an armed guard or two.

Finding A Pleasant Climate In The Central American Highlands

Then through a gambling buddy of mine in Phoenix, I heard about San Jose, Costa Rica.

I have always been attracted to city living.

Growing up in Hudson County NJ , which is quite urban, observing the WTC Towers construction from our kitchen window was amazing.

The hustle and bustle.

I loved it.

A city where you can walk to all your daily needs and activities.

What to do when city life becomes too oppressive?

Do we do what Mario Savio suggested, "...you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels ... upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you've got to make it stop! And you've got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you're free, the machine will be prevented from working at all!"

I totally disagree with this idea of stopping the system.

All you need to do is walk away and build a decentralized self-regulated systems from the ground up collectively.

Take advantage of the technology so we can keep diverting capital into our parallel world.

The capital of time, energy, resources, and even money.

The World Economic Forum (WEF) plan is for us to own nothing. "Us" refers to just the people in their Smart Cities because the WEF over five years ago that some of us will not comply.

They even mention those of that ilk in the article.

My biggest concern is all the people who do not live in our city. Those we lost on the way. Those who decided that it became too much, all this technology. Those who felt obsolete and useless when robots and AI took over big parts of our jobs. Those who got upset with the political system and turned against it. They live different kind of lives outside of the city. Some have formed little self-supplying communities. Others just stayed in the empty and abandoned houses in small 19th century villages.

For me, northern Nicaragua is the most suitable for doing this and that is the plan.

To organize a Quinta, small farm, as an Intentional Community and a revenue generating tourism business.

A place where people can try out living in nature closer to the creator's nature and beauty.

Sharing life in a small community with hopefully ever growing neighboring communities.

The Decentralized Economy Is Here

We need to learn to develop black market businesses from local supplies, coffee shops, cantinas, food service, etc.

I see future a localized decentralized Hive future:

HiveBars
HiveCafes
HiveInns
HiveLiving
HiveHealth

No signs
No ads
No name
Non-descript

Hive ONLY!

Hive holders and a guest or two.

The new modern Speak Easies of those living outside the Smart Cities.

We not only need to know how the banking system works as @taskmaster4450 explains it in great insight To Take Out The Banking System, Hive Needs To Truly Understand It.

We need to look back and understand alternative non-regulated business like we had many years ago.

The freedom lovers in Spokane have set up a freedom exchange that @newsnownorthwest wrote about 1 year of the Spokane Freedom Exchange and it shows what a few freedom lovers that have never met can do with some effort and no regulation.

I could see them expanding into local delivery services for small scale exchanges of produce, dairy, meals, services, etc. as their group grows and the legacy economy goes through this Great Reset.

I have been looking for locations on line but am well aware that being in the area physically with your ear on the ground is the best place to find possibilities.

Mira Flores Reserve In Esteli Future HiveLiving Hub?

A Hub where interested parties can see decentralized blockchain meet real local communities.

My current commitments will leave unable to return until the latter half of 2023.

For now here is a little cabina out at Finca Linda Ojos, Esteli, Nicaragua.

My wife and I have always dreamed of that here in Canada. A remote village with a community farm, sawmill, etc and everyone having a personal acre to grow or do what they want. The proceeds of any excess resources being sold to the general public would go to upgrading the community as a whole and reinvesting back into ourselves. There would be an empty home where people could come and live for a month and see if it something they are passionate about.

Now, we just need the $300k to buy the property. lol

I hope you get to see your dream to fruition and I look forward to following the journey.

How many acres can you get for $300K?
The thing about the highlands here is it rarely goes below 14 C here. Making open construction a lot cheaper to build. Essentially just close in the bedroom and have an awning you can put down in rainy season to keep out the hard rain.
I was thinking of 2+ manzanas (manzana is 1,000m sq.)
Maybe start with glamping to generate some cash flow. You could set up each tent on a platform and build a semi-outdoor bathroom for about $3,000 each. I am referring to the top tent in this pick and check out that rental price of over $100 per night.
40% occupancy and $80 per night is $960 per month.
A cute cabina with a bathroom and sitting area with use of a community kitchen would be less than $10,000 each and the kitchen and dining area could be done for around $15,000 to $20,000.
3 to 5 manzanas for around $50,000 to $75,000 and now you can see how this develops.
Invest in a cabina and live in it when you want and then a split of rentals when you're not there.
Start
Land $50,000
1 Cabina to live in $8,000
Small kitchen and dining area of 4 tables $10,000
$15,000 for a truck
$83,000 total to start on a small scale.
Hit 60% occupancy now it is 1,440 per month per tent.
My numbers are guestimates but I have live down here 17 years.
Grow as cash flow comes in or how about setting up a community with our own coin that generates interest earning from profits?
The Great Reset will soon be here and an alternative economy plan will be needed.

It depends on what you're willing to work with but this was just a quick search on realtor.ca.

The thing about Nicaragua is I would never want to live there. If I was going anywhere south I would go to live near @buttcoins in Guatemala as I can't stand humidity or oppresive heat. While I know that heat is relative, I found this on https://internationalliving.com/countries/nicaragua/climate-in-nicaragua/

With a general subtropical climate, it is not as humid as other countries further south, which is good news for those of you who don’t like really hot weather. While most of Nicaragua has an average temperature of 80 F, there are beautiful cities to consider retiring to in the highlands that have cooler climates, much like San Diego

San Diego is way too hot for me.

As for the great reset. Meh. I don't pay attention to that shit. Reset, don't reset. I am just going to keep living my life and not get upset over things I have no control over. I did all that worrying about the ways of the world as a younger man. All it got me was anxiety and there was nothing I could do about it anyhow. I will let everyone else fight it out while I try to start a scrapyard and get melting down copper into ingots to sell back to whoever wins the info war.

You got that right. I am not upset at all. I really think it gives great opportunities for us odd balls.
Looks like @buttcoins lives out at the lake. We need to do a Hive Guatemala meet up.

Damn right. I am in. Next year though.I'll need to sell a pile of scrap for that trip.

Yes! I’m so down for a meet up!
@hankanon are you near Guatemala?

Oh cool, yeah I’m at lake Atitlan in San Marcos. Here at hostel del Lago

That's a solid community worth building right there

I think so too! Let me know when you're ready to start working on it.

I am ashamed to say, I think i shall be stuck in England for some time. I miss the roads and travelling.

Though i am forming my own fellowship here and it's been going well.

Nothing to be ashamed of. I think I would love England. It's on our bucket list after Ireland.

Thank you for the shout out my friend! Much appreciated and nice to see our work up here in the inland northwest is not going unnoticed. I'll be sure to share this with my friends they will love to see you mention our exchange.

Just wanted to introduce you to my friend Godchildren,

https://peakd.com/@godchildren/posts

he did a 40min vid here detailing his escape of Hong Kong due to the CCP takeover:
https://odysee.com/@FaiFai:e/sp2:c

All children of God are welcome in my circles. Thanks for the intro.

and introducing you to a good friend of mine from Ireland, wise old man Gabriel https://peakd.com/hive-122315/@gab300/gdvynoxf

(newest vid here https://odysee.com/@Gab300:3/le,rouge,morgue.:5 , i'm trying to help him set up on hive, so his videos are slowly getting posted over here)

Yeah, yeah....I am on to him...LOL...Irishmen are my Clan. I am a proud first generation American here living outside the USA.

You have Irish Blood in ye?

75% Irish, 25% Scot. Second generation on the Scot side and 75% on the Irish side. Well my Nana would say British of course. LOL
I was raised with my Belfaster nana in my home from the age of four.

LOL I am on wine number 3...I am 1st generation, as my Mom is a British citizen, even after 62 years in the USA.

Damn them's some hardcore bloodlines in you!

On top of it, if you search "Soccer Town USA" you will find my home town. It is still the soccer capital but now more of the immigrants are Latinos. Funny that I can go to my home town and speak Spanish and be understood by many. My families bar is now a Colombian Latino.
