Season 7 Episodes B, BF, C, D
JAN 4 2020 → OCTOBER 2021
@ Fuerteventura, Canary Islands, ESP
LAST UPDATED: 27 MARCH 2021
In Fuerteventura since February 2020.
You can join, with a 10 days quarantine or negative PCR.
What a time to experiment with new commune-like situations, like different types of hackbases. Due to the global plague, we are gloriously stuck on the Fuerteventura island. Contact the base if you want to visit, are already here, or want to meet online, wherever you are.
Serving suggestion: Quit job — cancel rent — fly here
(2020/2021 @ El Jablito, Fuerteventura)

Scenario / Time Plan
(DONE) JAN 4-15 2020: 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 2020: 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) FEB 2020 : 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 2020 - INDEFINITE: Shelter in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic
The Spanish government has enforced a strict lockdown in Wave #1 (March - mid May 2020).
The flights have restarted July 1st 2020, have since been uninterrupted.
Our situation here is presently enviable.
We are open for new crew, and provide a temporary 10-day quarantine space.
We keep maintaining ~1-month supplies, and are embedded within the local community of the tiny village where we're sheltering (<10 constant inhabitants, ~30 houses, not on official cadastre).
