Hi Jocelyn
I was wondering if anyone might be traveling from a city with better international links that I could get a lift from, such as Seattle.  I might consider buying cheap transport and driving.  Are there any spaces left?

There are currently two spaces available.  And at least one person that will arrive tomorrow - but I think he is leaving again in two or three weeks.   And there is another person that is talking about arriving in the next few days.  

I wish I could give you really great, clear answers, but most of the people that say they are on their way never show up.   So if we were to hold spots for all the people that are "on their way" we might have only one boot actually here.  

At the same time, Fred has made it clear that six is about all the boots he can manage.

So, we make the best of it.  

I suppose one way of looking at it is that perfectly good people must be thoroughly punished for the choices of a few hundred other people.

I know that when people say "I will be there in three days!" my thought is "I don't care.  I'll believe you are coming when I see you are here."  "I am so sorry, but I will be delayed for three days because of reasons."  again "I don't care.  I'll believe you are coming when I see you are here."  "Tomorrow, for sure." "I don't care.  I'll believe you are coming when I see you are here."  

The stuff that is a real pain is when people ask us to pick them up in missoula, and they are a no-show.   They don't even answer their phone, texts or emails.  It's as if they paid a hundred bucks to fuck with us.  

I get it, life is full of adventure and comedy.  Shit happens.  Cars break down.  Major family stuff shifts.  Noir.  Romance.  Disaster.  Crime.

Once people get here, everything seems quite predictable.    

Again, we make the best of it.

IF (a big IF) some boots show up within the next couple weeks, as Paul just explained, we could be full. Though due to all of the unpredictability we've experienced to date, we are not saying we're full until we have six boots onsite and digging in.

I have family and clients in the Seattle area, so I make trips to and from the Seattle area usually (but not always) about twice per year. So, there could be a chance to coordinate a ride with me if the timing were just right and if we still have bootcamp openings.

Edited to add: I don't know of someone coming from a city with better international links currently. Though feel free to chime in if you're a boot who might be coming from a city like that!

Two questions: Where is it, and what is the  next start date? Thanks, Cori



Where:  near Missoula, Montana

when:  now.  Once full, I hope that we end up with a perpetual waiting list.  It is possible that there will be a day when a new boot leader emerges and we can do two bootcamps.

Does the ant and deep roots program have to be worked consecutively or cumulatively?

Also, once the deep roots program has been completed will there be any legal/formal paperwork involved or just a handshake?

So, you are thinking that you will join the bootcamp for a while, then go away, and then come back later and finish the two years?

Also, once the deep roots program has been completed will there be any legal/formal paperwork involved or just a handshake?  



There is a document to sign.

Yes. I arrived today and will leave on March 28th for about three weeks and will return to finish the deep roots program.
