Choosing the location a different way prt. 1
« on: March 16, 2010, 07:28:48 pm »
Kaltxi

Ok so we are having a hard time finding the location. So I am going to try it a different way.
here is what I am doing
prt.1- general biome  eg. forest
prt.2 - climate (temperature and moisture)   eg. temperate and moist
After we do this we can narrow it down to more specific areas on the world
prt. 3 - more specific biome     eg. decidues forest
After we know all that the options will be a lot clearer and we can find land to buy in those areas

Also on my poll when it says mountain or island we will decide in the more specific section what type eg. jungle mountain or jungle island

This is more helpful, but so difficult to choose, its kinda what I was aiming for in my what do we want from our tribe location thread, so hard to choose though.
Anyone feel free to add me on msn or skype: [email protected]

well i voted for forest/island

but i think i would have like to vote for more cause a rainforest would be more interesting, but there are poisonous animals and i doubt we could introduce prey such as deer into teh environment with out damaging it.

We're dreaming in this topic. We need to look at things more objectively.

if you really think about it objetively then this whole tribe thing is a dream! you can try and look at thign as objectively as you like (like i have tried to do in everysingle on of my posts, failed in quite a lot of them) and when you do you start arguements becuase everyone wants somethign different what we need to do is not this (on teh froum) we all need to meet up and have a huge, huge, huge discussion about it. thorw out all teh s*** that is pointless, places that just wont work, and people who arent 100% commited everyone needs to get outside and camp like were planing to for at least 2 weeks.

sorry but im am going to rant allot today, im not in a pretty good mood.

that is true and I know this thread is not the most objective but it will show us what most of the people are looking for then we can start looking for regions with things close to what we are looking for

so it might help so don't bash it to much

I think forest is without a doubt the most popular choice.

It's also the most realistic possibility.

I chose forest, and mountains. Or forest-covered hills. They're the two most realistic options (imo anyway) for several reasons.

1. Easy to hide.
2. Easy to find food.
3. Easy to find water (mountainous areas ALWAYS have streams).
4. Lots of firewood and materials for shelters, tools etc.

See Black Hills in South Dakota or Clearwater National Forest in Idaho to see examples of what I mean. Maybe it's too far north, I'm not familiar with the weather in northern US.

Those areas get very harsh winter conditions. They were marginal in prehistoric times and were occupied by migratory tribes who used them on a seasonal basis.

No way they would be a first choice for year-round living for a primitive society.

Don't even think about squatting in a national forest.

The Black Hills are sacred to both the Sioux and Cheyenne and to even consider (yet another) white invasion of their lands is wrong.

Why not look at some facts, rather than pretty pictures and base an analysis and selection on real world factors?

Once the last ice age ended people had about 16,000 years to find the best locations for their tribal societies in North America.

And when the European's arrived, where were the most successful tribal societies on the continent?

They were in the river valleys of the eastern woodlands where there is a temperature climate and vastly more resources for hunter-gatherers than in the west or north. Most of these areas, of course, are now developed and radically changed, but large areas of Kentucky, Tennessee, West Virginia and Virginia are virtually untouched.

If you want to see everything on your list and a lot, lot more, start looking at the slopes of the central and southern Appalachian Mountains and down through the Smokies.

I wrote "examples", not that those areas were my ideal choice (actually someplace similar to this region IS my ideal choice, but that's just me). I know full well the importance of those areas, my people (Sápmi, or Sami) have had cultural exchange with the Sioux for many years (search "Riddu Riddu" for an example).

Also, I'm from northern Sweden. The outdoor experiences I've had so far has been in areas with that kind of winter conditions and worse, one third of my country looks like most of ice age Europe did. And I tend to forget in my enthusiasm that not everyone has lived under those circumstances.

Third, pretty pictures are not only pretty pictures. They tell a lot about the weather conditions of a certain region, if you know what to look for.


 




But I didn't know about the areas you mentioned. Not living in US, my knowledge of the geography there is marginal and I have no clue where it might be possible to settle for a tribe. I leave that to those who know more than me.
