Hey if anyone wants to pool together (with each other, not me) the resources to buy a house on a 14 acre woodland property at a 2-3 hundred grand price point, let me know.
I know this is weird and probably fruitless, but I'm serious about it.
My parents can't afford the local taxes anymore and I'd be really happy knowing the place I grew up wasn't being subdivided into crappy commuter housing.
@InspectorCaracal Our goal is to get a place like this eventually, but we've 5+ years from being ready....
Good luck finding someone, I'll boost as I can.
@jessmahler ahhh darn the universe :(
@InspectorCaracal Where is it?
@whami Southern NYS. If you're interested for real, send me a DM.
@InspectorCaracal Thanks. Geography is the problem for me. I was just asking in the off chance it would be near me.
@whami I figured! Thanks anyway~ it's too bad it wasn't the right area.
it is not completely unfeasible, my friends from England managed to do something similar in 2013 and their housing co-op is still going (although the blog is rarely updated, they avoid corporate social media to some extent and haven't yet discovered Mastodon)
@vfrmedia Oh cool!!
@InspectorCaracal Can I suggest, in line with achieving your goal, that it might be an idea to say where on the planet the house stands?
@rah you can, or you could look at the replies and see I already answered that
@InspectorCaracal Ah this is clearly where the Fediverse falls down. I can see no such reply. I expect the person you replied to has blocked my Mastodon server and hence I cannot see either their reply or your reply to it.
@rah ah! possibly
usually I open up the thread on the source site when I want to see the replies, myself. the idea that everything should and is funnelled through to a single end-point in a decentralized network is a bit silly.
@InspectorCaracal super long shot, but what country/state in this in?
@balrogboogie US, southern New York!
I've been regretting not putting that in the initial post for days, lol
The Planet is a small, unrestrictive community, and a customized Mastodon server. We have certain features that don't exist on most mastodon servers, such as being able to post to only other members of this server.
We welcome anyone who wants to come join and whatever language you speak! If you're a creative type, queer, a nerdy enthusiast of Something, you'll definitely feel right at home, but we're proud to be a friendly and welcoming community.
Toot Planet does not keep local image archives more than a year after posting. Don't use social media as a media archive!
