"Hello Joanna, I had seen some of your earlier posts about being in San Luis, had assumed you were already there. If you have an RV you are off to a good start. I know the "permits" thing is getting harder to get around, but…"

"I have seen a wind turbine using a 30 gallon barrel cut in half to catch the wind, hooked to a car alternator. Wasn't mine so I can't say how well it worked. Wind though, is a neccesary addition to solar because sometimes you…"

Here is a place where we can share our ideas of self-sustainability. Whether it pertains to gardening, energy(solar, wind, water), construction(cob, straw bale, earth ships), permaculture...You get the IDEA...lets share it!

"Hi Tim, Am guessing this is your first kid. My oldest was born 10 days after the 1979 Gathering at Hannagans Meadow. We were more or less living in a 1964 VW bus at the time. We then moved into a miners shack in Bisbee, AZ for two…"

I live off the grid in northern AZ with my 14 year old son. We have a bit of a garden, and a few chickens. I work as an Archaeologist in the greater Southwest. Have been going to Gatherings since 1978.
Hey, Bro! We ran through Tucson a few days ago, stopping to see my son. Then off to a gathering (Magic Bowl Bobb's birthday bash) in Nev. That didn't quite work out, but we had a good time and are now in LA at my sister-in-law's. Next stop probably Fumix to see my daughter's family. Then to Tucson to set up a 6 month home, get ready for retirement. Looking forward to living close to my 'kids' a while. I lived in Tucson '70-'82; reare my children there. Then lived in Prescott 12 yrs. We thought we were going to CO, but appears Tucson is it (due to work availability). So happy to be home from 14 yrs on east coast!!!
Your vegie harvest looks great! Williams... great view of our 7 Sisters (mtns and Pleiades).
Hey Star Albright~! jes' wanna say thanks for laying it out pure & simple a while back on my predicament in the crack house- Your honest thoughts were the final catalyst, Man~! That's what I needed to hear- Wishing you Holiday Cheer~!
Hi Star, I've known a few people from Willimas, I worked as a dispatcher at Waste Management. I know most of the drivers and also some folks that worked in the Grand Canyon. I really don't miss hauling water and the winters there. I'm in Eugene OR. still looking for some land, always dreamed of a hobbit house...
Hey Star I had a dream about the valley at Dripping Springs No. of Winkleman over 35 years ago..about the time you took your first tenious steps on a similar pathway. We bought a ranch there, and for many days, sometimes i was the only one in the whole valley. i knew that other people would come, and when i was out in the field irrigating, would sometimes talk to my soul brothers and sisters in my mind, telling them to "hurry up and get here."
Since that time many have come and gone, passed through and added their energies and left. I know with absolute certainty that it is to be a safe place.
Christmas Star Community was started and later changed hands and evolved to become Wind Spirit Community. www.windspiritcommunity.org Although no longer directly affiliated with the group, i am in contact, and it will be a place that i look in to for the rest of my life. I am sort of like the grandmother out there, even though i don't tell people that, and many don't know this.
May people directed by the soul vision find their way to this place.
Couple hours south of there...Lookin' to find a bus...Ready to take my kitchen gear and make it mobile...Keep gettin' tripped up...Will make it happen...When it's suppose to...The bus...Will come my way...Where you at???
