I don't know how to contact Jocelyn directly. We have a lot of interesting exotics and fruit. Contact me if you want me to participate.

Ashland, OR / Medford, OR
SF / Sacramento

Sacramento has some very cool movements going on, heck I even know a backyard cob home being built in middle of the city. There is also sac valley permaculture guild and liberation permaculture.
In Davis there is a large movement too and you can visit village homes the permaculture community, farm 2.6, te domes and ec gardens.
I can even arrange for sleeping etc.
If know exact dates and how many days you want to do it for I would be willing to partake in part of it, maybe all of it.

Also, please post the info for the 7th as soon as possible so we can get the word out.

To Paul and all that help, We thank you so much.
We are homesteading outside of redding, ca. and are very excited attend some of the talks/events.
Are all the events open to us?
Do we need to register or R.S.V.P. somewhere?

I have a Land Yacht and plenty of room. No close neighbors though a few hundred feet off of 101 so there's the highway noise. One gets used to it.
Only thing is I'm just a bit North of North Bend on the Coast, near Lakeside so you will probably turn off (Florence) towards Eugene before you get this far South. Turning off any sooner kills some of the best Coastal scenery and puts you on I-5. You can get to Eugene on nicer routes by going as far South as Florence or Reedsport then turning East. Nice scenic, minimal traffic drives. If you came to wher I am you'd have to backtrack 20 miles to go East without going too far South.
But if for some reason you decide to come back towards the Coast after Eugene and head down to Eureka, you're plenty welcome. Would save you paying at some campground. I'm right in the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area.
As for Burning Man, it's near Gerlach, Nevada ( I lived there for years before BM infected the place). Gerlach is 107 miles North of Reno on SR 447. so you'd be looking at a 4 hour min side trip from Sac, plus tickets to get into BM are in the neighborhood of $300.00. It's not really what I'd call a learning environment.
Take care and be well... Happy Trails!
P.S. I won't have any questions concerning PC or any misguided fandom to bother you with. In fact I won't bother you at all. Just feel free to park, relax and do whatever.
Note: Newport, Oregon has a free public dump station just off of 101 by the Nat. Guard Armory which is right on 101. So does South Beach State Park a mile or so over the bridge heading South. Most developed Oregon State parks have free dump stations as well. FYI.

Note to whale pilots:
Good Sam Roadside Assistance 1-800-842-5351 $112.00 per year, covers your RV, free emergency fuel delivery, jump start and flat tire change, key/lock-out service, covers spouse and children, 1500.00 trip interruption protection, covers a second or third regular vehicle as well. And of course tow service is free, with unlimited distance, unlimited cost, which is worth it alone for an RV. I've had AAA but switched once I got an RV. Worth signing up for before you begin the trip.
