thanks for the info!

I will be sending PMs to people with an address, and if that's not good we can go the PayPal route. Given that the total $ amount will be over $4000, I still worry that too many "gifts" will raise a red flag to the PayPal admininstrators.

Right now I need to get home.

That's correct , by sending as a gift, there is no fee for the sender or receiver.

Hello everyone, I understand that the house is very likely going to be full but I'd like to throw my name into the waiting list hat. I'm budgeting $450 for housing, food, and ride-share donations for the 13-16th. That budget could become a little better as I'm working on launching a crowdfunding campaign to make the conference and some other permaculture stuff happen in 2014. This also means I likely won't have funds available until January or the beginning of February. None, the less if things don't work out I'll be camping or using https://www.couchsurfing.org.

I'm going to start sending PMs to people about where to send money.



AWESOME. This is awesome.

Thank you, Julia!

Yes, sorry everyone, I was on call this week (it ends Friday morning-hurray!) and with Christmas and all that I accomplished next to nothing after reserving the house. As far as I know, the house is full, but I will post here if something changes.

This weekend I will try to contact all the people on the list I made above.

Oops, the weekend has passed and I haven't done what I said I would do. Sorry.

Jocelyn has shared information about direct bank transfers that might work very well. Currently my plan is for either 1) mailed checks or 2) bank transfers or 3) PayPal. I'd like to limit PayPal to the folks who can't do the other two methods, because I don't have a business account and I don't really want one.

The day is super short here in Portland in the winter and I want to go outside and get a few things done while the sun is up. I hope to contact everyone later tonight--I'm going to ask you when you plan to arrive and when you plan to leave, so I can inventory available sleeping spaces at either end of the rental and begin planning meals. If you haven't arranged transportation, you might want to think about that.

I am arriving in Ontario, CA at 10:30pm on the 12th and leaving from Ontario at 9:30am on the 17th. I will be renting a car and I'd be happy to share it.

We're still working out the van details. More on that soon. And I just can't thank Julia enough for making the permies house happen!

In the mean time, Paul and I are wondering if anyone wants to stay extra days (March 9-12 and/or March 18-19) in the permies house with us. See more details in the extra days at the permies house thread.

A 15-person van is being provided by a permie - sa-weet!

This should provide transport for most of the 20 in the permies house to and from the conference. Another 5 or so in a second and/or third car, I suppose?

I understand that the house is full which is great. As a young permie looking to soak up as much as I can, I would love the opportunity to stop by the house to share a meal or just chit chat. I'll be sure to bring lots of avocados, lemons, goat cheese and whatever else is ripe to share!

The house is full for the 5 days of the conference. There is a thread here about sharing housing, including camping. I found the big house on VRBO.com, and AirBnB.com is another possibility.

I am still waiting on deposits from a couple of people (mostly my fault: I messed up my mailing address) and if anybody disappears and a spot opens up I will start in this thread. However, there are multiple people ahead of you (already in) this thread, so I'd advise working on an alternative.

Weird, I thought I posted a reply but I don't see it. I'll delete one if two show up.

Thanks Julia for the reply, I'll start looking for other options. I'm not in a postition to coordinate this time, I often can but not this time.

What number am I then on your wait list?

I'll check out the other link that was further down too for the day or two before the conference.

Thanks again!

There's a growing group of folks setting up camp at Skinner Lake. We'd love more camping neighbors in our low-cost, outdoor cooking, shared-ride-friendly neighborhood! Thread is at http://www.permies.com/t/30603/southwest-usa/Permaculture-Voices-Camping-Resource-Planning

I would like to sign up for a spot on the waiting list for a bed/place to sleep/place for me to set up an air mattress; shower; room share; fridge space; whatever!!! This would be totally cool. I would arrive Wednesday night and leave really early Monday morning.

I plan on arriving LAX 11pm On wednesday. I can also rent a car to get from LAX to the house, then shuttle people back and forth from the conference and house rental. I would need to make a 7am flight out of LAX on monday morning though.

I get a discount rate through budget, so I can rent
A hyundai accent for $120 or
A mid sized SUV for $300 for the 5 days.

In fact, if somebody else wants the discount code, you can message me

I know CeCe mentioned something about waiting around wednesday, but that might be to long of a wait...

Finally I might also require a pit stop at In&Out Wednesday night when I arrive.

How do I sign up??

Also, will my car rental be useful?

Too funny! I have a friend here in Seattle who keeps a card in his wallet. On the back it has:
Address to the closest In&Out to LAX, Long Beach, Hollywood/Burbank, and John Wayne airports.
First stop whenever he flies into SoCal.

Just to support the thread drift....

There is an In and Out at Temecula Blvd, just down the road from Pechanga, right on the way from the house to the conference.

My advice- it's good, but only once in 24 hours, and never more than two days in a row. Hard learned lessons from a longtime local.

Its a good burger. Not at all the best, but for cheap and quick, it sure is a winner.

3 bedroom 2.5 bath
beds for six
1,100 a week plus cleaning 100 and damage deposit

Are there enough interested folks to organize a second permie house?

This house is still available
VRBO 153200.

The ranch is located 3 miles from Pechanga Casino. less than a 10 minute drive and you do not have to travel on the freeway to get there.

"The beautiful and spacious 3 bedroom, 2 bath ranch style home is located on 4 acres of green grass and trees. Besides the park-like settings, there is a tennis court, basketball court, built-in barbecue, large barbecue area by the pool, fire pit, horseshoe pits, horse stables and putting greens in the front yard located by a relaxing water feature. You are certainly welcome to use the pool and jacuzzi, but it will not be heated during the winter season. Although the home and property offers complete privacy, you are only located five minutes from the heart of Temecula and the Temecula Wineries. "
The rates are as follows:

Nightly Rate: $450.00 x 5 nights $2250.00
cleaning fee $150.00

Refundable Deposit: $650.00

The deposit is refundable within one week of check-out,



If five of us when in on this it would $480 each including cleaning. I'm not in a position to book this but if someone else is I'd definitely be into it. Be grat to see a second permie house happen

Just for comparisson a room in Temecula and car or taxi to go back and forth to Pechanga would be more like $600-700.

Two things.

I will be arriving in LAX at 10:19 AM on Wednesday the 12th. I am thinking about renting a car from Oceanside after taking the train to Oceanside (it's about $30 USD) and if a couple of others chipped in a few dollars I could be a shuttle. M Kenty I would be willing to wait and meet in Oceanside if you're willing to take the train down. I've checked prices renting from LAX and it's prohibitive and I'd rather just take the train down to avoid the freeways around LA.

Also -- a few of us are talking about renting another house. Who else may be interested? It won't be exceptionally close (driving distance) but looks like about $40-50/night for a couple of places:
http://www.vrbo.com/365547#ownerprofile
http://www.vrbo.com/417074#rates

I am able to organize it but need firm commitments from people once I have a price quote. The second house (417074) claims a rate of $166.50/night if 4+ nights are booked, but it only sleeps 6 as opposed to 10 for the first listing.

Let me know ASAP if you're interested.

Update - This one's (above) gone. It looks like Susan, M, & I would make 3 ppl for the one M listed. I'd be happy to get 5 more ppl & draw straws or whatever for beds - I'm more interested in being close to the conference, and spending minimally on accommodations, & I tend to sleep better on the floor in my bag, anyway. It sounds like a really nice house, with a lot of amenities (which likely none of us will have time to use). I explained to the manager about who we are & what we are there for - she thinks the owner would even be okay w 10 ppl in the house, considering the likelihood that we will make such light use of it. I think we might be able to negotiate that into a lower price for, say, 8 ppl. As it is, it looks to be working out to be about 45 / night / person, about 3 mi from the conference.

I would like to hear (asap) from more people interested in this. Are there any?

Actually, this one
http://www.vrbo.com/365547#ownerprofile
works out to about 38/night minimum, for 10 ppl 3 nights.

This one
http://www.vrbo.com/153200
Looks to be around 45-50 at this point.

I just found out about permaculture voices today, and am trying to make travel arrangements. I am delighted that cohousing is going on, and would love to join up with one of these houses. I am flexible, would like to sleep in a clean bed. I could share with cooking and cleaning. Could rent a car but would prefer to contribute as a paying ride share carpooler.


I would be there from Wednesday afternoon or evening until Sunday evening. I still haven't booked my flights (farm sitter comes first) so I don't know which airport I'll be using.

Are there any houses that still have vacancies?

Thanks

Hi guys

A couple of us booked an apartment in Bosdall because it was simply getting too complicated and people weren't getting back to us about committing to a house. Now that there are $195 tickets up for grabs on the Nutiva deal, I think there may be enough to fill up another house. These two are is still available:

http://www.vrbo.com/153200#calendar

There are beds for 6-8 and it's $450/night. I talked to the owner last week and she sounded really nice but it's pricey.

This is a better bet but it's 10 people for about $300/night, so will be harder to fill...
http://www.vrbo.com/365547

There's really not much left at all (besides the Motel 6 in Temecula and the Dripping Springs campground, which is about a 15 min drive) so if you're looking for a house still, this might be it.
Also I'll be renting a car in Oceanside and so far have 1-2 seats still open to pick people up/drop off after the conference.

Good luck, hope that helps at all. There's also AirBnB but not much left...
Susan
