The Persecution of a Pioneer: “Mountain Man” Eustace Conway
(RAS RADIO) I have no idea how “Mountain Man” Eustace Conway (FB Fan Page here) of Turtle Island Preserve has missed my radar, this man is living my dream! I stumbled upon Eustace Conway this morning after seeing a Daily Mail UK article about the predicament he is in with the local government beauracrats of Boone & Watauga Counties, North Carolina. It’s a real shame there is no Oath Keeping,Constitutional Sheriff’s down there like Richard Mack to come to the aid of Mr. Conway.
Eustace Conway, his 500 acre preserve and his consistent/ persistent volunteers have never had any issues with the local government in the last 26 years he’s been residing out in the mountains of North Carolina – until of course, he got his own TV Show. As of this writing, we are still questioning the motives behind the employees of the “Planning and Inspection Department” and “Health Department Safety Specialist” who’ve harassed him over a mandate that his doghouse and outhouse meet a series of absurd regulatory codes. Of course that’s not their only gripes with Eustace, he didn’t get permission from those wise-overlords in the county to construct the buildings on the land that he owns. Eustace didn’t bother to get an arbitrary piece of paper granting him permission to do what he wishes to do with his own property. It was his property, he owns the property, and was not infringing on anyone else’s life, so why should he need a bureaucrat’s permission slip? What Eustace wished to do was hand build a number of supporting structures on the land that he legally owns.
The initial contact was some time in June of 2012 which was during the heart of Season One. They called him up and said they wanted to visit his property.After coming out there and taking a look, they slammed him with a number of administrative “violations” which restricted Eustace’s ability to use his own property as he saw fit.This blog is not meant to be an entire recap of events since then, it’s about the events that happened, today, and how I/ we can help stand with Eustace.
