Okay, so since you said they should have contacted me I checked my primary spam filter and I think I found the contact. Thank you!

Jocelyn,
Can you check on my email status too, please?  I signed up for the last session but have not seen any replies other than the paypal one.

thanks,

Rob

Yay, emails! So I will be driving from the Denver area; seeing as this is over a 900 mile drive I'm planning to leave Wednesday, hopefully drive 2/3 of the drive, stay somewhere along the route, finish the last leg Thursday and get camp set up. I'm concerned that tent space will be taken up at this point.

It's good to see there will be showers there; how about some way to wash clothes? 12 days camping is more than I've done in one stretch and I've done the Rainbow Gathering a few times back in the day.

I'm assuming there'll be places to charge laptops, phones, battery packs, cordless power tools.

That's my concerns for the moment. This is 5 weekends away? Am I counting this properly? Damn I have much to attend to.

Later!

There are plenty of tent spaces, just a limited number of tent pads at base camp. (I think we have 5 or 6 tent pads, which are sand-filled rectangles made with logs.) Base camp is rocky and hilly, and those who don't mind the climb, some times prefer a quieter tent spot way up the "volcano" (where there are not tent pads but plenty of grassy areas to pitch a tent). In the past, we have had folks pitch their tent right in the parking lot behind the shop (we call that area Arrakis), which would be the least hiking, though not exactly that private or quiet.

There is a manual, hand-operated washer that we store in one of the shower stalls to keep it out of the elements. It can be pulled out and used to wash clothes and there are clothes lines for drying. Otherwise, the nearest coin-op laundromat is less than 10 miles away.

Yes, we have special USB chargers, two of them that take 10 USB cords at once, and lots of other power around the shop and the library (I'll explain more in a minute).

Note that the shop is also what we call the auditorium, and it is at the bottom of base camp where most of the jamboree will take place. The shop is a large, metal building with a bermshed around it. The shop has one door that is large enough to let a semi truck in. Parking is typically behind the shop in Arrakis. Though there is another, small parking lot (the turtle lot) across the driveway from the shop.

The garage and library building (fka the office or the Barony of Bacon) is up the driveway from the shop and the parking, and next to the Fisher Price House (which is the double-wide where Paul and Jocelyn live and where the cooking will happen). The garage is a small stick-frame building (not a metal building), with a normal-sized garage door, and has a library space on the north side of it with a few desks, books and magazines. Some times folks confuse the shop/auditorium with the garage/library. We use shop and garage separately and distinctly to mean two different buildings, so I figured that bit of orientation or semantics might help.

We typically send all the other e-mail info AFTER we've received your registration form. So if you haven't filled out a Google form for the jamboree, please check your spam or let us know and we'll resend it. There are a handful of participants who haven't yet filled out the registration and might like more details sent to them!

Question from today:

We really want to attend a workshop on building our own Rocket Mass Heater, but we're out of the country until the end of October, so we will miss the jamboree. Will you be running any other workshops after October this year, or do you recommend any others in _____?

To which I replied:
Paul's plan is to have RMH workshops every fall (usually October, but could be September) so next year is a possibility! Keep an eye out on the forums and the daily-ish email. It's not likely we'll have another one this winter this year.

As for other RMH workshops, I'd recommend watching these forums:
--workshops forum:  https://permies.com/f/175/
--find your regiional forum:  https://permies.com/c/3

Or better yet, create a thread in one of the above forums to make a request!
