Tours start promptly at 9:30 a.m. and meet behind the shop/auditorium (in Arrakis) to get started. If you are late, you could miss the group.
Pack your own lunch for a lunch break from 1:00 to 2:00 or so, depending in the group.
The tour resumes after lunch and usually goes until 5:00.
Be prepared for uneven and steep ground at times, and being outdoors in Montana weather. We used to do the tour in about three to four hours (cue the Gilligan's Island theme song!), though now it takes at least 6 hours, and can even be 8 hours long if there are a lot of questions. There is walking, albeit not overly long distances, quite a bit of standing, and parts of the tour are driven (we might use our trusty/rusty old van Toots for the driving parts), with limited actual chair or bench seating at some parts of the tour where we gather around to talk about something.
There are three pricing options:
free if you have already paid to attend a workshop or event or if you've paid the bootcamp fee $50.00 special bootcamp fee pricing* (click here to pay $50) $20.00 per person just for the day tour (click here to pay $20 - you will need to click and pay again for each additional person)
*Normally, the bootcamp fee is $100.00. BUT if you arrive on the tour day, and take the tour your first day here, that saves us a LOT of orientation time and we'll discount your fee to $50 bucks!
Directions are sent after payment is received.
The goal is to have the tour dates adjacent to other events. So, if you pay to attend that event, you can tag on to a tour as well! This post will be edited if we add more tour dates, or if tours fill up.
