These WWOOF podcasts have been very helpful to me as we are starting to open up our property to visitors and workstayers. I would be very interested to hear the stories alluded to toward the end, and what if anything you think may have prevented them. But they are your stories to share or not, so no pressure!
The challenges of managing people are fatiguing and the stakes are high. They pulled out the foreman chair for me several times in my diesel mechanic career and sure I'll sit in the chair for a while, covering for vacations and such but I've always found it very tiring and laborious. One of the disadvantages of being an introvert. Those who can manage people toward a goal have some serious talent and I can only salute them and say "well done" since I find it so difficult myself. And if you can attract leaders along the way that's almost miraculous. I won't bore anyone with excessive praise though.
There was some hesitancy when Paul was going to share the Pig Bucket story but clearly some stories bear repeating, and a lot people probably never heard it before. It really shows why everything is labelled at basecamp. Well done. Then there's Jennifer's chainsaw incident and the darker disasters that were mentioned by Ron and Jennifer (but weren't shared in detail). I'm just as happy not hearing it today but it's probably important to hear if you're going to be a WWooFer or a host. This subset of Paul's podcasts would be hugely helpful for anyone having anything to do with WWoof or the boot camp.
And as far as that couple who did a bunch of mud slinging a couple years ago. Their story was in such huge conflict with everything else that's shared about the place that I didn't take it seriously. There's always going to be a troublemaker so I didn't let that get in my way of spending some time there, and if my health allows it I plan to return this year as well.
I wasn't selected to go to mars. This tiny ad got in ahead of me:
