Madeline Breeze wrote:any update on this post? im in los angeles but would like to move to high desert or establish some sort of part time base to experiment with permaculture ideas. socal deserts are rough - hard if you're not there all the time to prevent squatters and thieves grabbing your stuff. anyone else have experience in this regard? im somewhat new to the forum but maybe this has been discussed elsewhere.

Weekdays are filled with homestead projects. A few days gathering firewood. A few times sharpening chainsaws and chisels after heavy use. Half of this months time has been dedicated to raising Alerton Abbey. Took down the wall for construction. We added three additional support post. And verticalized two main posts. Also added footers to distribute structures weight. The other project of canning kitchen on mobile skids is underway. Its complete enough to put in a RMH during upcoming jamboree. Rafters were harvested from burnt area of forest. Many hours of log peeling after that. Learning a lot about notching roundwood. And getting buildings all level and supported. Will post more by end of the year on projects. Weekends are relaxing with opportunities for more work. Got to do some awesome things with new friends. Found great things while dumpster diving. Collected berries. Harvested hundreds of pounds of apples. Made cider. Celebrated J's birthday. Seen a circus in town. Wo knew Missoula could be fun?
Many Blessings on your day

We are near Missoula, Montana. Are you asking about traveling for this event, or how to move here for longer or permanently?
