Come on, we can do it!

Free camping (or cheap bunks), 31 organic meals, learn a ton of skills, use your hands, get the "hard to get" Montana oriented BBs completed, hang with awesome people, go swimming, see and use all the Wheaton Labs tech you've heard about, all for $450?!??!?!

If you've ever said "I'd like to go to Wheaton Labs some time", THIS IS THE TIME

As you get more serious about SKIP and earn lots of BBs, it unlocks other WL opportunities.  Free SKIP events for folks with enough BBs...

You can get to a position in the future where you can come to this SKIP event for free and be a co-instructor so you can teach a bit and get other challenging Montana specific BBs done in your spare time (like Opalyn has done).

Just so you know...BB60 and above can ask Paul, in this thread, for a free ticket to the 2024 SKIP Event ... only during this blitz.

All of us with BB60 can advance super-fast at Wheaton Labs using Paul's tools and equipment ... and help others with BBs we are familiar with!

Hope you get in on this sweet offer while it lasts!

I was just talking to another permie about the Dehydrated Sourdough Starter from a previous event. I will be practicing that so we can possibly make some of the dehydrated Sourdough Starter and some sourdough bread! I love the poly dough recipe Paul has shared to make Pizza in the rocket oven. Maybe we can make pizza on the weekend, if not.

From my email

I am very interested in attending the SKIP event and heard on the love you may have a place for an rv? If I came, I’d bring my family and my husband would attend. Would that arrangement be possible or would we need to get and rv close by instead? I know time is ticking for the sales please let me know as this will make or break us getting the ticket.



Let me pretend that you have seven children that are all 17 years old.  Then I would suggest buying 9 tickets (one for each child and one for each parent).  Then, yes, we do have spots for you to park an rv.  

Unfortunately, we are down to just 1 ticket left.  

Yes, there is a place nearby where you can park an rv.  

And we allow RV stuff here, provided that they don't plug in and that they don't run a generator.    (We do allow some low wattage plug in stuff but we charge extra for that)


Does this help?

I totally want to come for the freaky cheap SKIP weeks in July. I just learned about it last night. Where can I buy a ticket? I don't see the link. I hope I didn't miss it. Thanks.

Unfortunately, it appears that I did miss this opportunity. Please put me on an alternate list in case someone can't come. Can I come as a Boot and still do SKIP those 2 weeks? What're my options??

If you buy a ticket at the regular price, we will get you sorted out

For the bootcamp, it does seem that many boots rack up BBs while here for the bootcamp.

Woo Hoo!  I was one the road during these past three hours.  Looking forward to seeing you all in July!

Since the event is about 6 weeks away, it would be very helpful for attendees to read through the top post of this thread on SKIP: Everything about SKIP

Getting a SKIP book would also be a great way to understand what it's all about (not required):  Paperback or eBook

Getting some experience with completing BBs and getting them approved is also a great idea so you're more up-to-speed for the event.

The event starts with dinner and orientation the night before (July 14th at 5pm) so please keep that in mind as you arrange travel.  Preferred airport/shuttle arrival time is the 14th from 10am - 5pm.  Preferred driving arrival time is 1-5pm.

All good info! Saana is preparing to send us more information so we can get our schedules aligned.

I look forward to meeting everyone!

I didn’t realize there was a special going on for the tickets. Ugh. What an opportunity! Will there be any other specials before the event? I would love to go, but can’t afford the $2000+ for a ticket. Thank you

Hi all! I purchased one of these bargain tickets but had a family matter come up and can no longer make it. Would anyone like to purchase the ticket from me directly? Or know someone who would? Let me know, and thanks!

Hi Serena, please make sure the person you choose understands the rules of the event so there isn't any sadness.
