We have digs lined up while in portland.  Currently open to the idea of staying with a permie while in seattle.   If something doesn't get sorted out in the next few days, we'll make our own arrangements.

I'm open to the idea of speaking gigs or consulting gigs.

I was just thinking we needed Paul to come out to our property we just bought for a consult. Along with the 40 acres we have just to the north of it. We are just starting to try and get ideas going for the future.

Never one to just do one thing at a time. Why not a consult, podcast, and video opportunity. Where there is one, let's make three.

See our thread
https://permies.com/t/110258/permaculture-projects/home-HR-journey-freedom

And here is the thread about our 40 acres

Thank you

Hi-
If you want to take our Air BnB. On us. Hit me back quick. I need to go block it out.
https://abnb.me/8HAJTUMdTX

Terrified to have the Duke and Duchess see my place. But also excited.

I have my living room set up to do presentations on the 60” with stadium seating. So if you wanted to do a talk. We could also fit about 20 folks. Would have to co-ordinate on that.

We are 8 miles south of the airport. Just off I-5.

And now I must make up some consulting rates!

Mr. Hanford - how many podcasts have you listened to?

Mr. Norton, Jocelyn points out that most of our time in the seattle area will be near woodinville.  So, your offer is awesome and, it looks like we're gonna go airbnb shopping for something closer.

All of them available, and as a brother in the order of the overalls. No worries here we have been pesticide and herbicide free, personal experiences for that. And I have been slowly transitioning the family as much as possible. My wife has grow from a city girl into a full country woman. Our new neighbor is dedicated to the same, we are working to a better future with 5, 10, and 15 year goals. One of the goals was moving to eastern Washington, I have allergies to mold and life and breathing is better there.

Thank you for your consideration,
Brian

There are over 400 available.  I think you saying that you have listened to over 400 podcasts, right?

If so, this could be a lovely outing.  And a podcast is in order.

Any updates on consult fees, I can make it open to any that would like to come. We are still cleaning and updating the house but we have plenty of land for tents. Any permies interested in a meet up near Okanagan chime in. Smallwood farm stand is just up the road. Let's get a gathering for Paul to talk to.

Thanks

It sounds like while we are in portland on the 7th, we will be at julia's farm for a tour, pizza and recording a podcast.  

We are then in portland all day on the 8th.   The 9th will be a drive to where we are staying in the seattle area.   (it sounds like we will be staying near monroe, washington - quite close to jocelyn's family)

Apparently we are touring a permaculture property with jocelyn's family on saturday the 10th or saturday the 17th.  I think it is in redmond.   This is an odd arrangement that jocelyn has paid for  stuff already.   So if anybody wants to go with us you can pay jocelyn with this link.  More details when they are available.

It sounds like something is about to be arranged with brian hanford.   And it sounds like there will be a dress code requiring overalls - so the very classiest people only.   Not sure if it is an open thing or not.  



Staff note (Jocelyn Campbell):

Updated /8/19: the permaculture property tour has been cancelled. We're not doing that on this trip.

Edit on 8/8:  treehouse / permaculture property tour is cancelled for a variety of reasons.

It is in Redmond, on Saturday 8/10, 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. With a tree house! That's a $28 per person link that Paul provided - herbal tea included in the tour. The tour fee is funding tree house and property restorations and includes a follow up vist/tour at a later date.

We might decide to move our conversations to a park (or restaurant?) nearby after the tour - we'll keep you posted on that.

Edited to add:  they are restoring the tree house, so we might not be able to actually go inside it yet. That is why they are including a follow up visit with the tour fee. This is the photo of the tree house.

I started listening to the podcast at about episode 40 or 50 and listened all to current. I work most of the week but can get Friday off so the 16 or 17 would work best. We are located between Brewster and Omak. So kind of on your way back to Montana. We have a 2 acre property in malott, and 40 acres near Molson. It will be open to all that would like to come. Price based on consult fees. We haven't started anything yet at the properties, dess code optional. Overalls are the best!!! Grandpa approved.

Thanks
Brian

So I think you just said that you have listened to more than 400 - is that right?

Gurk!

Google says that adds two hours to our drive time.  

We would be driving back on the 18th.  So that limits the amount of time we would have available.

Yep, 400. And I'm a Kickstarter backer for the book. When you're bonkers for permiculture you can never get enough.

Hey Brian Hanford, I'm replying for Paul.

Since it would add 2 hours to our travel, plus spending about two hours at your place, Paul is thinking a $400.00 consultation fee.

If this works, the link to pay is:  https://permies.com/pp/400/paul-consult-brian

Got the coin, so this is happening!

On the 18th, we will leave monroe at about 7am and possibly snag breakfast in leavenworth.   I think that puts us at your place around noon.   We will spend a total of two hours at your place and then continue on to montana.  

Sound like a plan?

We did not hear back about some important details about the treehouse / permaculture property event, so we're not doing that tour this weekend. Perhaps we need a meetup at a park or something instead. Suggestions?

I'd love to meet up somewhere north of Seattle! If I remember, Lord's Hill Park in Snohomish is quite nice, if I remember, though it's been 7+years since I've been.

What day works for you guys? The 12th is my anniversary, so that's probably right out, but I think any other day would work. Anyone else want to join?

Hmmmmm, I should probably send out a dailyish asking people if they can meet up and what day works best!

I've never actually been to Lord's Hill park, that I remember. I might remember wrong when I look it up. I used to go to mommy group meetups in the area when I still used social media in the past.

Lake Tye park in Monroe is right off hwy 2 and SR 522 if it's easier to get to, and there are pavilions with seating that can be booked through the city (I think. I've never needed to do it, so have no clue how to book them). Also no guarantees I can come. I'm flexible, but have some appointments with the kids on the docket I can't miss.

Edited to add: The Lake Tye park pavilions are within line of sight from the playground, so if people have kids who can play without needing to be tethered to their parent every second, they can play while grownups talk. Negative of course is that if you get there during a busy time, the park will be loud!

(I don't know Nicole Alderman in person, but based on the familiar looking housing development I saw her post about at the Cider Press a while back, I'm probably less than a mile from her house. Hi!)

So far, it looks like Ron, Penny, myself, Paul and Jocelyn. My kids and husband might be tagging along, too. It'd be great to have more people!

And, I'm all for appropriate sustenance!

It's been a while since I've been to Lord's Hill Park, but it has lots of room to walk and hike and is pretty. I'm pretty sure I've been to Lake Tye, and it's a man-made pond, right? I'm thinking it might be more fun for permies to be in a more natural setting, even if it is a bit more difficult to find (and doesn't have a playground, but kids are usually pretty happy with sticks and rocks and running and trees :D). It does look like it has picnic areas, too!

I went and dug up the address for Lord's Hill Regional Park
12921 150th St SE,
Snohomish, WA 98290

How about 10 a.m., Thursday, 8/15? That will give Paul and myself time to do a few computer-y things beforehand, and then we'll be good to stay through lunch.

We could meet in the general parking area at 10 a.m., then decide where to hang out. If some wish to walk and talk, perhaps we'll head down the Boardwalk Trail toward Beaver Lake (trail) (in the direction of Beaver Marsh Lake) and the cut-off to the East Beaver Lake trail. (I'm making this up. I've been to the park briefly once or twice, but am just looking at the trail map on the link Nicole provided above. The Wayne's World Trail is closed, the website says.)
