Is this still an option?

Someone could do shallow roots *and* be a gapper ((ie: work on projects etc and be in on meals but personal time can go to building etc on your own shallow roots spot))?

I have seen you mention there is internet at the lab and since you have a strong web presence, I assume it is stable and fairly decent bandwidth. Is your wifi available to ant/shallow/deep? I would like more information on internet options as I may have to get my own internet before settling in.

Until I get a rocket stove set up I would have propane for hot water, but I very much want to get away from that and use more renewable sources. This would allow me to focus on infrastructure and less on housing. And yes I understand this would make me ineligible for the "challenge".

Is basecamp still open for shallow roots spots?
Is the pricing still the same as posted in the shallow roots thread?
I want to clarify (for people nagging at me) that this is the price paid all at once for the whole 3yrs?
$3500 for one acre anywhere on the laboratory.
$2000 for one acre anywhere on oehla section (the first section of the laboratory) or basecamp.
How would it work to sell the improvements to 'the spot' if person decides/needs to move?
Do you have any musts for animals raised on the first section of the lab and basecamp?
Like must be no gmo/organic feed if bought etc?
If someone gets a spot at basecamp what is the water situation there for people?
Could I fork over $3600 (gapper + shallow roots) now to lock in the cost?
