Toby is in montana and in the mood to visit with folks about permaculture.

He has extended an invite and we're putting together a car pool road trip to go see him. 

It will be a five hour drive from missoula.  We will probably leave at something like 6am from some point in missoula.  We will probably be back in missoula around 9pm sunday.  The details are being fleshed out now. 

If you are curious or if you wanna go, you need to reply to this thread.

Kelly has a rig that would hold seven, but I think four people would be the minimum and five would be the maximum. 

I'm thinking that we would record a podcast or two on the road. 

I should have more details figured out in a few hours.

For now, who is interested?

Krista and I are definitely interested. 

Are you guys leaving Saturday and spending the night or Sunday morning?


What an awesome opportunity!

Kelly has a call in to Jason who might also be going.  So we might have the full five.

Hey all,

My name's Chris Klatt, from Bozeman.  Toby originally contacted me and extended the invitation to Bozeman-area folks that I knew, and thank you Paul for organizing a contingent from the West! I'm confirming some logistical details w/ Toby at the moment, but at this point, it'd be great if we could all bring a dish to share for an evening potluck on Sat. night.

More details as they come...

-Chris

Does this mean we are in?

So we Bozeman folks are planning on meeting at the ranch at 11 AM Saturday, so we can converge with you all just before lunch.  I'll send an email off-thread with the directions once I get them!

Looking forward to meeting everyone,

-Chris

Sweet! We are really looking forward to it.

I guess we will discuss the details in the next few days. I think you have my number, or you can email too.

Thanks so much everyone for setting this up.  Let us know what we can do to help.

Hey Folks!

Toby has indicated that a late Friday evening arrival will probably be ok for your group of 5, with tent camping and some other options available, at no cost.  However, because he is a guest at the ranch he is staying, the ranch hosts run vacation rentals and typically expect $25/night per guest for Saturday night.  I think it is a reasonable contribution if you're planning on staying both nights.

I'll get directions to you as soon as I receive them!  Additionally, I will pool the participant contact info to flatten the communication lines, so we can begin to communicate about our expectations and interests for the day!

-Chris
