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.
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.
- 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.
