The kickstarter ended, the PDC ended, the ATC ended, all of the kickstarter rewards have been handed out with the exception of the thanks!   Thanks to all of the folks that supported this kickstarter.  It ended up WAY overfunded.   It turned out that we encountered a huge amount of comedy with equipment and internet stuff, so it's good that we had the extra coin to mend all that.   Plus, in the end, Tim Barker, Daniel Bender and I walked away with far too much jingle in our pocket.   Which is also good because the PDC and ATC ended up going thousands of dollars into the red for me, and, of course, Tim has a loooooong way to fly - and that's ain't cheap.   And nothing makes you feel loved like running a kickstarter and having the funding hit something ridiculous like 1400%!

I would also like to give an extra huge thanks to Jocelyn Campbell who put an enormous amount of work into budgets and spreadsheets and money shuffling and helping me to figure stuff out during the kickstarter.  She never asked for a penny and did a mountain of work.

I would like to thank Josiah Wallinford who stepped in during the event to fix all sorts of things, including making trips to missoula for parts and to upload videos when the internet was wonky ... and never asked for a penny or compensation - in fact he kept asking if there is anything else he can do to help.

I would like to thank Tracy Wandling for ideas and support during the kickstarter, and adding lots of excellent images (better than I could have imagnined) to the kickstarter with amazing turnaround time.

I would like to thank Fred Tyler who helped with brainstorming during the kickstarter and implmentation during the event.

Thanks to all the students that rolled with the cameras and stuff during the event. 

And most of all, Thanks to ALL of our kickstarter supporters!

We asked the kickstarter folks how they would like their name to appear in the "thanks" stuff and invited them to be as creative as they wanna be.   I'm gonna break these up by size a bit ...



I've always enjoyed alternative means of doing things that are a bit out of the ordinary and off the beaten path. Thank you for all you do to promote self sufficient living..... Bob D

If you like Permies, I think you will appreciate Strong Towns. Thanks for being awesome, y'all! Patrick Kniesler

Paul always goes overboard on kickstarter rewards! An information overload and so fun to be part of. Great job!
