A Windward member talks about making Bone Sauce here.  I can look for the matching crock pots that were used and bring them if they are still in good condition and don't smell too bad.

The bad smell is part of the charm...or rather the opposite of charm for deer. Though, I can imagine NOT wanting that smell in your vehicle when driving hours to Wheaton Labs!

I have the cast iron (somewhere).  

My only experience is making the video when sepp made it.  But I do have some of the stuff made by sepp.

We would need bones.



I’ll try to throw some bones in the back of the truck - though they would be sunbleached deer-bones rather than cooking leftovers, which I’ve read somewhere might not be quite true-to-recipe.

If it works out, great. If not, totally okay too.

The shandolier is available.  But it does not have a good heat source.  But it will probably be way better than a tent.

For every event we offer there is always "slumber party in cooper cabin" - so a cot in the big open area of cooper cabin.  

I think the tipi is available starting sunday evening.



What about the Bunkroom? There's still open bunk there, right?



Slumber party in cooper cabin sounds great.

It looks like my vehicle will make it up to the Tipi so I'm going to try and switch to that one which would open up a bunk in the bunk room.

Penny, what day were you thinking of arriving? The Tipi is currently being rented on the 16&17th, so it should be open for event, but if you're coming really early, it might still be occupied. (I totally didn't realize this when I'd emailed offering the tipi, as I was just thinking about the event, and not some people arriving early. Totally my fault!)

My understanding is that they need to be fresh-ish.   After all, the final product is the oil from the bones.

Let me check with the butchers around here.

Approximately how many pounds are we looking at?

I would guess five or ten pounds of bones.

It sounds like Paul has an "already ruined" set that we can use so only bring yours if you really want to

I just looked and found one cast iron pot but not the match.  More searching tomorrow.

Ok, I just read through this whole thread to try to summarize the BB or badges folks are interested in.  It's a robust list!  We'll do some sifting and winnowing of the list on Sunday and try to sort ourselves into some semblance of order before Monday.  What I have (roughly) is:

Beau:  Hugel(s), rocket stuff, willow bank stuff, scythe sharpening, kindling cracker and metalworking, berm scaffolding, bone sauce and natural building
Ash: move willow candy, anything else???
Opalyn: Hugel, rocket stuff, willow stuff, natural building stuff, earthworks, twine, berm scaffolding, 3 log bench (maybe), shakes, bidet installation
Penny:  tractor loader for 15 min, rocket stuff, willow stuff, hugel, metalworking, rocket rice with haybox, peeling logs, shakes, junkpole work
Me:  rocket stuff, willow bank stuff, rocket and haybox related cooking stuff, scythe sharpening, sawmill sharpening, backing up a wagon (if there is a wagon)

So from this list I see a lot of commonality in Rocket, Willow bank and Hugels

I see at least some pairings for scythes, metalworking, berm scaffolding, natural building and shakes

My guess is that once everyone's seen a rocket ignited, we can do those BBs on our own over the course of the week.  The batch boxes require a bit more planning since there's only one at base camp.

I'd like to knock out the hugels as early in the week as we can since it's the biggest single job (I think).  Much of these activities can be done at basecamp which will make it easier to herd the cats.

Many folks are interested in greywater and willow feeders.  If they don't have enough full wheelie bins, some of us may not be able to get that BB.  

Ash, I actually don't see in this thread where you listed your wishes.  Maybe I missed it but feel free to add your desires.
