Today is July 18th, 2014 and it’s my 29th birthday. I still felt young but knew I was soon approaching my 30th Birthday. My friends were all getting promoted, climbing the corporate ladder. No respectable company would hire me with my unstable employment history and lack of a college degree. Shit, I didn’t even graduate high school. I was more interested in sex, drugs and alcohol. My passion was smoking weed, from morning till evening. To play video games, socialize with friends while smoking excellent herb, watching Breaking Bad and Weeds. You know, enjoying life, not working for “the man”. I didn’t need much to be happy, but the older I got, the harder it was to survive. San Francisco is very expensive to live, and I was getting too old to couch surf when I couldn’t find an apartment. My friends were all starting families and had wife’s and young children, so I couldn’t crash at their places anymore. I was starting to feel like a loser and I wanted to make something from my pathetic life, quickly and with the least amount of work possible. So I slowly came up with a plan to get rich quick. I read a couple dozen books on how to get rich. They all had a common theme. Your job should be what your passionate about. If you do what you love, you become the best at what you do and you can become a millionaire, no matter what your passion. If your passion is car racing or skateboarding, you can just be the best at what you do, and the money will follow. Tony Hawk loved skateboarding, and he made it big. So why couldn’t I make it big in Marijuana? After all, it’s what I am most passionate about. I pay more attention to detail when rolling a doobie to perfection than I do while playing with my girlfriend’s nipples. I was definitely more of a toker than a drinker, so I decided; Marijuana is how I am going to make my millions. So I had to make a plan, a good plan. I had to spend most of my time planning how not to get busted. So here are some details of my plan: 1. To reduce my risk, I needed to do one grow to reduce my exposure. 2. I could tell no one about what I was doing 3. Once the grow was finished, I had to make 1 sale to reduce exposure. 4. Once I got paid, I had to keep a low profile Just four items, to concentrate on. Not so bad. I can do this. So lets expand on #1. 1. To reduce my risk, I needed to do one grow to reduce my exposure. So one grow. Since I didn’t have the capital to grow in an underground tunnel with expensive generators, lights and hydro equipment, I had no choice but to grow outdoors. So it was decided. I was going to grow outdoors. Now how do I reduce my risk growing outdoors? I had to grow somewhere where the sun was strong, with very few raining/cloudy days, so that my plants would grow fast and big. Giving me the best yield per day outside. Another problem is you can’t hide the plants outdoors, so why waste time trying to water dozens of small patches. This wasn’t going to work for a one-man operation. I needed to just grow everything as one large field of Marijuana. So, how could I do this and reduce my risk I thought? Well, marijuana needs water, so people will look for large outdoors grows near a water supply. This was the most important thought that had me stuck with me for weeks. But I finally came up with a solution. I found a location and purchased a very expensive water pump and 3 miles of hose. I thought the only way to reduce my risk was to be three miles from the nearest water source, where no one would be looking. I had to make sure there were no airports nearby, and that the local farmers didn’t crop dust and that no one nearby owned a plane as a hobby. This was tedious work that kept me busy most of the late winter. I found the perfect spot. It was 3 miles from a very small river that would sometimes run dry in the hot summer months. So I need a place to store water as well. The location was an old cabin that was half standing and completely overgrown and it looked like someone last lived there in the 1800’s. There were no neighbors for 20 miles, no roads for 10, and no electricity. The soil was not the best but it would do the job with some PH adjustments. Stay Tuned….
