Yes.  I think there are still 4 spots.  But maybe it is 3.   I do know that there are spots left.

This was a week ago. Are there still spots left? I am scrambling to help my husband find a way out there for cheap/quick. We would LOVE for him to take part in this with all of you.

Yup - haven't sold a ticket in a whole week!

After Caitlyn signed up her husband, there is one student spot left!

In other words, 11 students have signed up so far and we *think* the 6 boots spots will be full, too (though the bootcamp numbers have had a kaleidoscope of variables...)

From Paul's post here on the first page of the thread:

Basic food staples will be provided.  But the students will need to cook for themselves and clean up after themselves.


Because we are providing food for each participant, it is $100 per participant. The gapper fee of $20 per each additional person was only for a tour or events where we are not feeding everyone for two weeks.

Camping is included with this event (and most, if not all events here). Base camp tent pads (about 5 or 6) dot the hillside above the Fisher Price House and are first come, first served. Aside from tent pads, there are pretty much unlimited other places to camp between the roughly 20 acres of base camp, and over 200 acres at the lab just 15 minutes down the road.

Although be prepared for base camp being rocky and hilly. The shop/auditorium and parking lots are at the bottom of base camp and just walking up the driveway to the Fisher Price House leaves some people out of breath if they aren't used to hiking or our elevation (about 3,000 feet).

People wonder about food. I wonder about food! So to explain more, and since this is a free* event, the food will be similar to our bootcamp program:

paul wheaton wrote:We provide staples like oats, flour, beans and rice, peanut butter, bread, eggs, coconut oil, fruits and vegetables ...  all organic or better.  So vegans are well covered.  Vegetarians are probably pretty happy.  Folks keen on meat will need to bring their own.  No problems with cooking meat here, but we generally aren't providing it for the boots.


Even more about bootcamp food is here. We are not providing coffee for this event.

*Note that this is considered "free" even for those paying the $100 per student or boot if they haven't been here before. This is because $100 hardly covers the organic food for two weeks, let alone utilities, materials used for the PEP1 projects, wear-and-tear of things and roads, or the time any of us are putting in to this. The $100 just puts some skin in the game for those registering for the event. I'm an accountant...
