1,381 backers at this point, I wonder how this compares to day four number of backers on other kickstarters.

Maybe the party will perk back up if you ask people to share now, so that their friends can get bonuses before the cutoff.

dailyish going out:

You could get a ticket to the 2021 Permaculture Technology Jamboree for $65.  Maybe.  Sorta.  Kinda.  Not really, but maybe.  

Here’s the story …

The kickstarter hit $55,000!  Yaaaaaaaayyyy!  All those people backing at $65 or more get so much stuff!

And the next stretch goal is …   (drum roll goes here) …   six people will get a ticket to the 2021 Permaculture Technology Jamboree.

Here’s how it works:  when the kickstarter is over, we will ask all the people backing at $65 or more “wanna go?” Of all the people that say “yes” we will select the six people that are putting the most into the kickstarter.   And this is why we see a lot of backers put in an extra dollar or two.  And some people have put in an extra seven dollars.  

The Permaculture Technology Jamboree has TEN tracks of projects happening simultaneously.  Some of the projects include:

- rocket sauna
- Sepp Holzer spring terrace
- water from a humus well
- solarium
- dry stack moon gate (more like a window, really)
- fresnel lens glass melter
- building the electric hay ride (electric tractor)
- round wood timber framing (pavilion)
- passive solar garden heater
- rocket forge
- rocket kiln
- night time food dehydrator (rocket assist)
- trombe wall
- shaving horse
- repair cafe
- DIY deep well pump
- heliostat
- cob sink
- haybox cooker with a low power assist
- junk pole fence
- SKIP track (each person is guided through a solo project)
     o woodburning a sign
     o carve tool handles
     o make fireplace tools
     o sharpen tools
     o make roundwood mallets
     o make a three-log bench
     o make adobe bricks
     o build a dry-stack retaining wall
     o cut down trees for use in log structures and/or firewood
     o make a rock jack to support a fence without digging post holes
     o sealing a pond without a liner
- homesteading track (each person is guided through a solo project)
     o make a bird house, insect hotel, snake and toad habitat
     o make a hugelkultur garden
     o hot water bath canning
     o fermenting
     o pickling
     o foraging
     o harvest and eat wild edibles
     o harvest and preserve natural medicine: comfrey poultice, dried mullein leaves, and more!
     o make public art and branding a location
     o textiles: sewing, darning, crochet, basket weaving, making twine
     o using rocket stoves, rocket ovens, and rocket water heaters
     o everyone who wants to can drive the excavator

Link to the kickstarter party bus thread (a great place to ask dozens of questions like “are we there yet?” or “where am i?” or “what are those kids doing out there?” or “does this kickstarter come with cheese?” or “can I get my kickstarter without cheese?” or “does this cheese come in a can?” or “what’s that smell? Is that the cheese?”):

Any chance for the next stretch goal you can run a Permaculture Technology Jamboree in Tasmania?! So much good stuff to learn! The people winning these event tickets will be very lucky.

Hy Paul,
Managed to forget my password.
I'm trying to get a new password.
Kick starter keeps kicking me out with my old one.

I had one a few weeks ago when I bought a dozen of your permie books.
Send me one and I will right it down.
Thanks,
Ellie

You sure can!  But there's a right way and a wrong way.  When you go into kickstarter, select the higher reward level.  It should tell you you're at the desired reward level as you submit or check out.  

It is possible to accidentally just raise your dollar amount without selecting the higher reward level.  Which isn't what most people want to do...

Yep, I had to go and update my pledge to 65$. Those strech goals are way to tempting to pass. Thank you all who contributed with their stuff for the amazing bundle of goodies, from super early bird to strech goals stuff and all between. Also thanks Paul, Mike and volunteers for this crazy good campaign.

I have a question regarding giving ebook codes away. Will 'Knights who say free' deal with ebook codes too? Or can I open a thread here that says something like: I'm giving away ebook codes for SKIP book and first X people that post here will get one each?

And it's 57,591$ and 1,450 backers!

I'd love to up my pledge to $65, but it then increases the shipping to the UK to $45, which would take the total to $110 (£80) and I don't have that much disposable income in a month! I only want one book (shipping $15) but that's not an option :(

I just upped my dealio to $65.00 + 15.00 for shipping = $80.00 for the whole deal.

I can hardly wait :D

Thanks Paul & Mike for this.

I think the new total when I did it was 57,900.00

Wahoo !

I hope we can make crazier good-er ...   with a dozen more stretch goals.   I guess we just need to hit our stride or something.

Yes.

You can do that too!

Or maybe just give books to people with posts you like.

Mike came up with a solution.  

At $65 you could get purely ebooks and select a destination of "Virgin islands" which has a shipping cost of zero.   And with a different card, back the kickstarter for just one book.

It isn't a perfect solution, but a decent middle-ground solution.

When the kickstarter is over and we are getting to the point that we need info, then we send out what kickstarter calls "the reward survey."  In that we will ask about physical books, ebooks and stuff like that.

Thanks Kw!  Just need a few more to do that and we'll all get a chance at those 6 Permaculture Technology Jamboree tickets.  Some of the cool people you see in the Boot Camp threads originally came to Wheaton Labs to attend a PTJ.
