~Organized! Takes too long, as always. Lots of toys. And internet! 20+ down and 20+ up, so goodbye one of biggest challenges to being here more. Because i need it to do some activity vaguely related to making money someday, or something;) Climate activism incentivized protest hedge fund token is *the* idea that i can’t… Continue reading connected


Flight booked woohoo! Nice here; even nicer with my Moana anywhere. Looked at some local building supplies, did *a lot* of organizing, and asked several of Maribel’s (the realtor who showed me some titled properties before arranging for me to buy some of her uncle’s ejido land) recommendations for quotes on container foundation as well… Continue reading lluvia


Got trailer onto land! Was a wrestling match, taking out a chunk of trailer and one of truck’s handles on a tree that i didn’t see:) But, on! As i pull the trailer to its planned long-term spot, psssst: a flat! great timing. Also, excavator got a flat! didn’t even know this was possible. Still,… Continue reading occupied

back ‘home’

Craig to Cabo for his flight; was great to chill. Again sooner vs. later! Then, I drive to church aka Home Depot in La Paz. Basically, most things but labor cost more here; frustrating. Todo look more at how people are already building! And, explore making with dirt:) Back to the hostel. It’s frustrating trying… Continue reading back ‘home’


A little more than a bit hungover; definitely want to reduce/eliminate this drinking… seems like a good opportunity, starting tomorrow! Sad i don’t get to see Kate for a long time as i talk to my Moana… but googling after we talk I find out direct travel between mexico and u.k. has reopened! Woohoo!  Relaxing day… Continue reading todos


Progress excavating! ~1/3 done. I don’t know how long this would have taken in the U.S. because I’ve never had the patience to wait and find out. Craig and I drive to Todos Santos. Sad family call on 2nd anniversary of Daddy dying; try to lighten it up by telling about friend who died getting… Continue reading clearing


Found containers! Facebook marketplace way bigger than Craigslist here. ~$10k delivered with a crane that can stack them (I plan to build a bond-villian-worthy lair with a 40′ container atop a 20′, centered, no supports on ends). Cuco will start excavation tomorrow finishing Tuesday latest, creating a 14mx126m access road and clearing ~63mx40m of my 10,000m2… Continue reading contenedores

here fishy

Weirdly enough, there are several container homes in La Ventana. I tour the nicest one that’s finished, and it’s thoroughly meh. Best: spiral staircase. Worst: not sufficiently insulated (interior walls warm to touch), weird extra windows, and patio doors on second floor that open to nowhere). Meh. We spearfish. And I catch! Nice big roosterfish.… Continue reading here fishy

getting to it

HOT. And nice, far beyond the sunrise. Trailer almost onto land: out of street and nearby. Truck got real sandy there for a second;) Found corners of my lot; this is big and green! Walked with Maribel and her uncle, a fisherman who got this plot in the 2008 land lottery (unallotted land is assigned… Continue reading getting to it


We arrive! Not a short drive to La Paz then quick from there to La Ventana. I park on main road’s side by turnoff to my friend Salim’s La Ventana Hostel. We made it! I’m so over driving!!
