Congratulations Clayton! Thanks for all the pictures and info, and for enhancing the restoration of your little corner of the earth.
Edit: Oh, and I sent my pledge today.

Nicole, I did $25 three times when I had pledged twice. Oops! So put me down for $25 three more times. I really appreciate the purple moosages when a boot "rings the bell" as a reminder to make good on my pledge. Thanks Greg!

Who are the boots now who have their thread on Permies, but did not yet reach the 100 posts (with photos)?
Or aren't there any new boots, or not posting pictures?

Dez is still posting daily.

Jen and Josiah seem to be posting less frequently.  I think this is because the coin in the BRK is a little low, and the time to put pics up every day when doing everything else can be a bit much.

It sounds like there are a total of 4 people who'll be at Wheaton Labs for Christmas: Jen, Josiah, Dez and Scott (5 if you count Paul). There's 5 people who are currently part of Bootcamp but are visiting family, etc, for the holidays.

So, a total of 4-9 people (5-10 if you count the big man in overalls).

I hope that helps!

We just had an awesome anonymous donor--going by "Permie Fan"--who's pledged $300 each for the next five BRKs! Thank you SO MUCH, Permie Fan!!!

This brings our total back up to $945--at one point we had over $1,500! There's been a few boots who've completed the BRK...only to leave in search of a worky job to earn some cash. This is a big bummer, because those Boots were awesome leaders, workers, and communicators! You can see the BRK Hall of Fame here. Maybe if we can get the BRK back up, we could draw these people back to Wheaton Labs and really move permaculture forward!!!

I just got an email from somebody that has been a huge backer of many permies and wheaton labs things over the years.  At this time he is listed as "anonG".  

He is adding a $1000 pledge, plus will pledge another $1000 as a match for future pledges!    So if we can get $1000 in new pledges, that will bring the total for the BRK up to $3945 plus care packages!
