Hannah and Kevin were here for a bit over a month.   My guess is that Hannah is the artist ...




Last week there were 17 of us.  Kyle was here for just a few days.  Two couples came for just a week.   And today, mud and rodney had to get back to their lives, and hannah and kevin had to get back to theirs.   Here are the eight of us still here.  



(from Dez's thread)


We have another couple arriving on Sunday to stay in the red cabin.  They will be with us a month.  And another couple arriving the weekend after that.   There are a few others that got something scheduled before we switched over to the waiting list system.   There are now nine people on the waiting list.

There are now ten people on the waiting list.

There are 7 boots here now.  Two more show upon monday.  And then three more spread out over the rest of the month.  These are the folks that already made arrangements before we started the list.  

It sounds like they all have an exit plan, so we might be asking about two more people in a month or so.

We are making another change:  the bootcamp fee is about to change to $100 per person.  Flat.  We did have something that was $100 for the first person and $20 for each person after that, but we are discontinuing that.  

So if anybody wants to exercise the $120 option, they really need to do it in the next two days.
