Brushfire Rendezvous Update

I’ve been adding information to the Brushfire Rendezous page. Coming in October (10/11-10/13), Brushfire is a 3-day rendezvous celebrating a life close to the land in northern Maine. Not an instructional course, it will be more of gathering of like minds and shared interests. I’ve changed the pricing structure to $45 for the 3 days (or $15 per day), which includes camping, composting humanure outhouses and all activities. There will be lots of skills demonstrated, foods shared (such as homemade sauerkraut, bread, wine, etc.), and expedition planning discussions (bring your maps and your ideas). If you’re curious about moving off the grid, we’ll be demonstrating the systems we use around camp to make the lifestyle relaxing and enjoyable.
For more details head over to the Brushfire Rendezvous page.

Typos, Etc.
Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
