In a few days we will record a podcast with Jacob Lund Fisker, author of "Early Retirement Extreme."  

Shawn and I mention his book in our chapter

Chapter 2.4: Radically Deviant Financial Strategies
   Section 2.4.1: The Story of Gert: A Millionaire Life Without a Million Dollars
   Section 2.4.2: Owning a Home Without Grovelling to a Bank
   Section 2.4.3: Early Retirement Extreme
   Section 2.4.4: Give a Gift to Your Future Self with Passive Income Streams
   Section 2.4.5: The BEER Plan
   Section 2.4.6: A Clever Recipe for More Luxuriant Living at Half the Cost

Jacob has read the chapter and has lots to say!

If you are patreon supporter, you will get the information on the time, date and type of recording event so you can participate.

Josiah just put in two more videos.  Patreon peeps now have access to these two videos.   I think this relationship with patreon is working extremely well!  Josiah is REALLY coming into his element.  These last two videos are REALLY good!  

         - The rocket cooktop at allerton abbey

         - the cob floor experiments at allerton abbey

I think Jen is doing a great job telling us about this stuff.   This is all working out super great!  I know I am ecstatic!  This is amazing!  Strong forward velocity!

To see these videos now, and get a whole bunch of other stuff, and see all of my videos before everybody else:   http://patreon.com/pwvids

We've been experimenting with putting the names of patreon peeps in the video.   Just three per video - for the top 10 all time contributors.  

I guess I'm still in that space of "I don't know how to patreon" and maybe this will help to get the patreon thing to do better?

I was just thinking today of how cool it is that the youtube videos and podcasts are getting so much support and are getting going again.  

As I think of the people that have behaved poorly over the years and made my work more challenging, it occurs to me how grateful I am for the people have been so powerfully supportive.   I'm very grateful.  

To express my gratitude for how incredibly much these folks have supported me ...

To the people supporting my podcasts, that have an all time contribution of $100 or more, I sent:

   - 24 ebook gift codes "Building a Better World in Your Backyard"
   - 6 gift codes for podcast gobs
   - 6 gift codes for permacultue thorns ebook
   - 6 gift codes for the rocket ovens DVD
   - 6 gift codes for the Giant Solar Food Dehydrator Movie

To the people supporting my videos, that have an all time contribution of $40 or more, I sent:

   - 12 ebook gift codes "Building a Better World in Your Backyard"
   - 6 gift codes for permacultue thorns ebook
   - 6 gift codes for hugelkultur microdoc
   - 3 gift codes for the rocket ovens DVD
   - 6 gift codes for the Giant Solar Food Dehydrator Movie

Note that these are all gift codes.  You can use one for yourself if you like, and all the rest can be given to anybody you deem worthy.  

Thanks again.   All of you put coin behind me with the idea of receiving nothing more than what I end up sending out to the general public.  It seems so weird, and rare, that this many people would do such a thing.    Your generosity moves me forward.  I hope that these gift codes make you look cool to your friends!  :)

If you pledge to https://patreon.com/pwvids - do you get access to all the bonus goodies even if you haven't paid anything yet?

Hi Paul,

When I became a member I just had to create the pledge and I had access. No charges had been put through at the time.

Thanks for the freebie!

That's what I thought would happen.  

Thanks for confirming Ashley.

---

So I guess this means that 100,000 people can go and get the goodies for, essentially, free.   And we just have to hope that they will stay with patreon long enough to actually contribute a dollar.

I just got coin from my podcast patreon stuff.  

I am super grateful to all of my patreon supporters.   I snagged the email addresses of all the people currently supporting my podcast patreon stuff who have a lifetime contribution of $40 or more and sent them the following gifts just now:

   - 6 gift codes for the 17 podcast review of gaia's garden
   - 3 gift codes for the Building a Better World in Your Backyard audiobook

Thanks, thanks, thanks for your support.  Thanks for supporting me ahead of production - not even knowing if what i put out next is any good.   Thanks for supporting me knowing that what you get is the same thing that general public gets for free.  

Each time the funds come in, I re-work the list that goes into the podcast page for each podcast.   This is the list of the active supporters that support at $3 or more, in order of their lifetime contribution:

And now I have received coin for my video patreon stuff.

Thanks to my video patreon supporters.  I am very grateful for your continued support.  I fiddled with the spreadsheet report stuff and was able to extract the email addresses of all active supporters that have put up $25 or more for all time.  To each of these people I sent

  - 12 gift codes for the wild edibles movie
  - 6 gift codes for the skiddable structures microdoc
  - 6 gift codes for the PDC evening presentation on animal relationships with jacqueline freeman
  - 6 gift codes for the PDC evening presentation on ram pumps with Tim Barker presentation

I hope that when you give these to your friends, they think you are generous and cool.

Thanks so very much for your support of something that ends up in the general public.  Your support propels oodles of projects and helps us build community - here, on site, and globally on permies.

When the funds come in, it is time to create the list that goes in the description of each video.    These are the people that actively support the patreon for $3 or more.  In order of their lifetime contribution:
