Thank Everyone, I have 2 years to do research. And I've been doing alot of  research on earthships. They do great in northern climates and solar passive design are being incorporated into new construction and the next wave of construction are passive homes which is already being used in Germany and a lady in the city had redesigned the concept to adapt to American codes. There have been earthships built in upstate New York , Canada, and all around the world. And stay at an average temperature of 65-75 degrees year round. Of course I plan on heating with wood but the earthship temp haven't fallen below 60deg in -20 degree weather. And not to mention the wife likes the idea of having a greenhouse attached to the house. Lol. Of course they are not for everyone and everywhere, but I being extremely mechanically inclined and well immersed in building. And as much as love renovating old farm homes, the cost is not cheap. Not to mention older homes are riddled with toxic materials and a lack of insulation. And earthships meet and exceeds building codes but are not worth the hassle and money to explain the concept and show reports to a corrupt and needy I am king government system. Again thanks everyone for some information and I am going to try to find some time to come up and explore and would love to check out porcfest.

How does Portsmouth fair for Free State project members? It seems be a nice community at first glance, but it seems to get little mention here. Is there something I am missing?

The other area I would likely consider would be Hanover and the surrounding towns simply because I think proximity to a university would be nice.

A charity started by "Free Staters" could be optimal. Here in Arizona, Goldwater Institute recently had a change in governance and we have funding to redirect. Do you think would mind if we emailed them out of the blue? We would need their most recent Form 990.

The mission is not so far off from what we would optimally have, but assuming we can bring in funding, it has been my experience smaller charities are often less concerned with new ideas.

the cops are better in Keene than Manchester.
Take it from one who has been arrested by both. :)

in the Shire and with freestaters
you will find those that have built yurts and done various earth sheltered designs
at porcfest you can hang out with them, we have also done alternative building meetings
you will find many likeminded people
I don't favor the earthship as much as other ideas, but you could make it work. In NH like longgisland, I am not real hip to collecting water when you can pump up nice clean water
in the hinterland you will find only 1 government restriction ... septic system approval
and with grid power you have their rules, which were no big deal

when one power company redid the power poles to our friends house he asked who did the wiring for the new panel (my wife). I said we had someone do it. He laughed and said "I don't know why I asked since you don't have to get permission here in Grafton."

you will find things pretty easy going in northern Idaho and NH, both will be a big change from what you are used to.

Hey Guys,

I'm not sure if this is the proper place to post this. If so, my sincere apologies to the Admins.

My name is Seth and I have just launched a legislation alert app called Apptivism that I think could help the people of the Free State Project to:
1) Quickly coordinate opposition for bad state legislation and support for good state legislation,
2) Hold representatives responsible to their constituents, and
3) Get better representatives elected.

The app is free to use because I want to help grassroots movements to make as much of a difference as possible.

Here's a very short explanation video:

Anyone can set up an Apptivist account (private accounts that follow Mobilizer accounts and vote), but Mobilizer accounts (Public accounts that can send out alerts on legislation) currently require an invite code.

I've followed the FSP for a while now and love what you guys are doing. While I might never be able to physically join you guys out in NH, this is my attempt at helping promote the cause of liberty, both in your state, and the rest of the country.

As such, I've set up a special Mobilizer invite code for the members of this forum (WEVVVVK), and it can be redeemed at A lot more information on the project can be found by scrolling down the homepage of the website as well.

I'd love to answer any questions that you guys might have, and I'd really appreciate any advice/feedback, if you are willing to give it.

Thanks so much in advance, and have a wonderful day.


That Guy Seth

Conway is a highly seasonal place... probably not a lot of skilled occupations there, I concede. You may be interested in these Facebook groups focusing on jobs: .

It's been two and a half years in the making, but we just bought a place in North Conway!  We'll be closing in a few weeks.  Making the permanent move from WNY by next spring.  In the mean time, we'll be spending as much time as possible during weekends, vacations, and over the summer making the new place home.  We know no one in the area - are there any get-togethers in the North Conway area?  Anyone into hiking or shooting sports?

How are you...another one in Conway. Actually, I bought a house, but have not come up to live full time just yet. I still live in Central Mass, but actually lost my job there just two days after you made this I have been busy looking for work ever since.

I do get up here every week though.....coming up Wed nights and volunteering Thursday mornings at the Gibson Center in North Conway helping people there learn and deal with their technology. (Laptops, phones, tablets, etc...)

We should get together come time.

Started by RidleyReport - Last post by bigqueue here I am!  How about you?   I guess the idea is to make sure non facebook folks can stay informed and connect.   Where do *you* think free staters should electronically organize activity, communicate, etc, that is not facebook?

I like forums because posts are stick and can be referenced for many years to come.
I think perhaps people have started to get settled in with their own "groups" and are not so much reaching out to connect with others unless there is a big event that pulls everyone back together.....

I guess life just gets in the way of things some times.

As for me....I lost my job in January and have been looking here in the North Country as well as back in Mass where I still live I do own a house here in Conway  and would love to live here...if I could just find a job.

My "real career" is as an Electrical Engineer...but little of that up here. There was one promising job at the paper mill in Groham, but I guess I didn't fit the bill. (and I can actually understand why)

I just started the process to be a letter carrier....but again, no work up here, only in Central Mass.....sigh....
