So I received a bootcamp signup from somebody with "seg" in their email address.  I sent the info about the next step and found the bounce message in my spam folder.  Fuck.  Okay.  So I forwarded the email using a different email account of mine.  

And instantly i get:

Address not found
Your message wasn't delivered to xxx@xxx because the address couldn't be found, or is unable to receive mail.
The response from the remote server was:
554 5.1.1 <xxx@xxx>: Recipient address rejected: undeliverable address: host server266.web-hosting.com[68.65.123.43] said: 550 No Such User Here (in reply to RCPT TO command)



(I replaced the actual email address stuff with "xxx")

Hoping that this person will read this, or maybe in a few days they will reply to this thread asking why they haven't received further instructions.

"Bootcamp question of the week: why the permaculture bootcamp at wheaton labs?"

Watch this video and find out how four young people answered that question. A common theme amongst each of them is their excitement about how the unique opportunties of the bootcamp can fulfill their Permie dreams.

Note that boots can get a ride to and from the airport on weekends for $15 for normal hours and $35 for wacky hours (9pm to 7am).  No rides during boot project time (monday through friday).

And boots can get a subsidy of $20 for giving a ride with your own rig for the first two rides for a boot.

Alright, I'm planning on coming down tomorrow, and I should have asked these questions before now, but here we are.

Will I be able to utilize my car to get to church on Sundays?
Will I have to attend church in Missoula or could I attend a more local congregation?

I have meds that I need to take in order to function.

Will I be able to utilize my car to get these meds as I need them?
Will I have to go to Missoula to get the meds filled or could I fill them at a more local pharmacy?

yes, you can use your car to do whatever you want.  

you can attend whatever church you want.

When i get a prescription (which is super rare) I tend to go to missoula.  I would think that if i got them locally ... well ...  I would need to be okay with the whole community knowing ....    I think some small towns are not this way and some are.  I think this one is "that way."

Boots can earn $300 to $500 per youtube video here.  And the BRK is now paying $4000.

Hi, I am Hao, I signed up for bootcamp last month, but today I go back to forum, I found in order to get on the waitlist, I need to complete two steps. I don't remember I did second step which is filled out the questionnaire, so I just want to make sure am I already on the waitlist? Is there's any way for me to check if i am on the waitlist?

I found the email i sent you about the bootcamp....    I don't see your responses on the questionnaire - unless you are using a different name and a different email address.

Are there older people? Can you accommodate an oldster 60’s brainiac who shouldn’t lift over 30lbs, and has some days of intolerable pain, where it’s off the feet?

You may want to look at the SEPPer Program. You can join and help the bootcamp whenever you are able to.

Hi Everyone!

I am Jay.  I've been digging Permies.com for a while without chiming in on anything.  I was really excited to find multiple someone elses speaking about getting back to simple living close to the earth...  a lifestyle of respect for the living world and a desire to bring healing to it, rather than our "modern" reality which is and does pretty much the opposite.

Looks like no one has posted here in ages, but I'm really looking hard at coming out to do the boot camp and want to ask a few questions.

1.  Why is "responsible hooching" ok, but using your own home-grown cannabis for medicinal, nutritional, and fiber purposes not?  Very much an notion I'd expect more in darker regions of the zombie parade.

2.  I have a big 5x8 trailer with solar panels and tools I would like to bring.  Is there space for that?

Jason,

I don't see your info signed up in our stuff - so it looks like you won't be coming out.

1:  if you have to ask, I think you are not a fit for our group.  There are lots of reasons, all of which I am sure you would find unacceptable.  So it wraps up as "personal preference."  Most importantly, we have had many, many, many people here who have said "thank you so much for drawing this line."

2: yup - no problem!


If you ever find yourself at a point in your life where you want to be all done with weed, maybe we'll pop into your head then.

It lies somewhere between "you have to pay for the sins of the people that have going before you" and Paul is the DUKE and his word goes.

Yes, but it will probably be up at the Lab and not at basecamp.

Oh!

Two corrections....
1. apparently I HAVE chimed in a few times on the forums!
2, it seems the page I found and posted my previous questions from was an old or partial version of the bootcamp discussion???  ...I see loads more posts (and recent too) when I checked to see if my post had showed up!

My questions were rather blunt and direct, and so I recognize they probably inspire a lot of other questions on y'all's end.  I'll try to clarify a bit, but I'm feeling a little reluctant to go much more personal detail right out in the open here.  I will share that I've never smoked a cigarette and drink zero hooch of any kind (unless Kombucha counts!).  I have a super clean lifestyle.  I have not used a pharmaceutical in at least 2 decades, including aspirin.  As an herbalist, trainer, massage practitioner, general all-natural health enthusiast, and someone who has learned to question the official narrative (as it seems the majority of people frequenting permies.com do) of whatever the Great and Powerful Oz claims to be for our good, I am wondering why the wholesale banning of such an amazing plant (cannabis, specifically).  Many places out here have "hemp" incorporated into their names because of the huge role they played on early homesteads during the colonial period.  People are capable of abusing anything, aren't they?...  including Doritos!  How about video games?...  facebook?  The official position of Wheaton Labs on this topic seems out of tune with the melody flowing in all the other aspects of the great life/lifestyle being lived and promoted out there.  Is everyone who values cannabis (or any entheogen for that matter) a defacto lazy, trouble-making pothead?  Maybe there is a subtler rationale behind the ban.  ?  I'm suddenly having a deja vu-like feeling as if I asked this somewhere on the forum once before....  hmmm.  Sorry if it was answered already.

Anyway, if there's a strong reason for banning it, it's not a deal-breaker for me.   It would require a shift in lifestyle away from what is part of a positive way of maintaining my health and how I would like to obtain fiber for clothing.  I'd just like to know if it's open for discussion or could be considered on a case-by-case.  Doing my due diligence.    I hope addressing this doesn't make anyone uncomfortable.

I gather from all the other things I have read about life in boot camp (at Wheaton Labs in general) that there's a lot of flexibility and time is taken to hear people out...  that value is placed in hearing a variety of perspectives on any particular topic.

About the trailer...
she is bulky, heavy, and full of things I would be using to build my place, bermed greenhouse, and all other projects I'd be helping on out there.  It looks a bit like the Flying Dutchman at the moment....  mostly due to the tattered condition of the  tarps on her.  

Anyway, thanks for any forthcoming answers!

Ok, guys!

I see your answers now!  
Personal preferences...   I completely get it.  I do not like to be around it when it's being used recreationally myself, in fact!

Thank you for the quick replies.
I really appreciate all you are doing!!!

Carry on, mates!

zero weed reason:  history.  preference.  And really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really sick of talking about it.

And when people say "I am so glad you draw that line" it warms my heart a bit.  

And a variation of what jeff said:  you must be thoroughly punished for the actions of those that have come before you.

Mostly: really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really sick of talking about it.
