Smoke?   You mean the forest fire stuff in august?  We didn't see much of that this year.

I think this is one of the coolest ideas I've ever heard! Really cool Paul! I hope you get a great group over there. I'm a little far away, but I'm routing for you. It seems that this is a great way to develop a strong community with people having a similar mindset. Eighteen months of separating the wheat from the chaff and a reward at the end. With a growing community of self sufficient people. Just brilliant!

If I want to come from South Africa would I allowed to own land in the US? Is this offer for US peeps only? I also have an 8yr old kid...that I would probably bring along...exploring unschooling with her. This offer sounds too good to be true, everyone says around here. There must be a catch. But the thing is, for me, I go by feeling...and so far it feels legit and good.

You would not be owning land.  

My impression is that the US gub'mint allows people to come here for a few months and then you have to leave.    But I gotta say there is a lot with coming and going from other countries that I don't understand.

As for an eight year old:  it depends on how well the 8 year old works.  But I am open to giving it a try for a week or two.

It sounds like we might fill all six spots in the next couple of days.   So I just gotta make it clear right now:   first come, first serve.

It's official.  All six spots are now full.

People are welcome to:

-   sign up for the waiting list.  To do this, you still need to part with the gapper fee.  Or, for those that have been here in the past as a gapper, or attended a workshop, you can just send fred an email and you will be put onto the waiting list.

-   sign up for a spot before febuary 4.   The program won't be quite as formal, but some people might find some benefit.  And that time would still go towards a roots package.   When febuary 4 comes around, you can be a regular gapper with the ants.  If you are also on the waiting list, then there is a chance you will be able to get into the bootcamp later.  


I talked to fred about possibly expanding the boot program.  I agree with him that we should first get a few weeks under our belt with six and see how things go from there.

Congratulations, Paul and Fred!  Based on reading the forums, I didn't think you would get many takers.  But there is so much context that we barbarians out here in the ether don't get.

Fred, I guess you have 3-ish months to get ready.  I encourage you to post tool needs to a "love" thread!

Good point!  It would probably be good to have shovels, picks, drawknives, spuds ....

Technically, all boots are gappers.  So I suppose all the gapper love stuff would be okay.
