Still all well in El Jablito, Fuerteventura!
New page for "CHT7-C" coming soon.
See "COVID REPORT" ↓ (TLDR: It is quite OK here)
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are gloriously stuck on the Fuerteventura island. If you also happen to be here, or if you are looking for any other kind of support, wherever you are, contact. This is a good time to actively experiment with new commune-like situations, like all sorts of hackbases.

From the main website ...
Totalism.org hackbase / CHT is a post-capitalist infrastructure research project in Canary Islands (Spain). The work is to practice, develop & document transitional tactics, tech, theory, and arts. Started in 2011 as a shared house, and since 2014 organizing temporary, experimental off-grid desert 🔗camps every winter season, that are *open to all*, using common-owned 🔗stuff. Your past training or perceived skill level in any of these domains doesn't matter. The crew coordinates by commonly-established protocols.
Subscribe to the mailing 🔗list, or find the project on social media.
Attend as crew !
Info! Including: costs, participation, dress-code, social code, apps to preload, and stuff to read.
→ Absolutely read the 🔗newcomers protocol !
→ Join crew via 🔗planning.
→ mail firstname.lastname@example.org
→ Skip the 🔗idiots-guide.
COVID-19 report 🦠
→ Borders are open since the start of July. Cheap flights have resumed.
→ Current COVID-19 status @ Canary Islands here:
Fuerteventura: "46 active / 742 total / ~120.000 population"
= Situation is reasonably OK
→ It might be an interesting option for you to fly here for a few weeks or months, if your personal/work/study life allows it, before they lockdown & curfew you.
(also, consider canceling your rent & job).
→ Yes, CHT has a 10-day quarantine protocol:
* We will support you during this time in an aux camp.
* Generally, we are quite strict/conservative regarding outside contact, meaning we:
* mask & keep distance to others,
* do minimum / remote supplies,
* do not go out to party much / at all
→ Email for details.

"""[ANNOUNCE] http://next.totalism.org/ January-March coliving hackbase in Lanzarote, Canary Islands. 50€ flights from EU. All life+lab costs 100€/wk (~60€/wk reduced). Hack the planet! """
The project is now fully mobile (→ 🔗trucko, a VW LT2.8 van).
We have reached Fuerteventura in February 2020.
New activities are focusing on expanding the common infrastructure (→🔗stuff), developing new strategies for life+work out of the mainstream, encouraging the spread and consolidation of similar efforts, and expanding the project to other islands of the 🔗canarias.

(DONE) JAN 4-15: Re-locate main project storage
Is currently in Mancha Blanca (Lanzarote) but needs to move.
Deadline is Jan 15!
Needed storage space: ~10m3 (~2 ISO pallets). All boxed up. Asking local connections for house or land storage options. Will not rent anything for money.
(DONE) JAN 15-MARCH: Ferry the van to the island of Fuerteventura
This costs ~20€ + 20€ per person
Once we're in Fuerteventura, everything is possible ... nobody was ever there! ...
Expect lots of exploration, and trying to meet new people: Locals (Spanish/Canarian) & the international "surfer" crowd.
Will probably set a few van-supported camps, and organize some public events.
Will definitely go around by bikes, buying ~3 new ones.
(DONE) Find a place to keep the van while we are not here
We will need to meet somebody and ask them.
Just leaving the van somewhere is possible, but not desirable.
UPDATE: We agreed on a van-store place with new local friends.
(CURRENTLY) MARCH-INDEFINITE: Shelter in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic
The Spanish government has enforced a strict lockdown, that ended in mid-May.
The flights have restarted July 1st.
Our situation here is pretty great.
We are open for new crew, under specific conditions.
We keep maintaining ~1-month supplies, and are embedded within the local community of the tiny village (<10 constant inhabitants, ~30 houses) where we're sheltering.

↑↑↑ This list is incomplete, might be confusing & is due for a refactoring, but should give a rough idea.
✈✈✈ Fly In ✈✈✈
General info about flight routes → 🔗flying-in.
Borders are open since the start of July & cheap flights have resumed.
Again: It seems this could be a good time to come here, before they lock you down & curfew you.
