My guess ? - A few people with some remote, hard-to-improve land, few resources to do so, who open their property to others for part of the year so long as you can provide for yourself, in order to get, free of charge,their labor to accomplish the improvements they want done. All under the guise of teaching you “ Earthskills” .

Then, they shut it down in the fall, booting out “the help”, till they need it again in Springtime. When the garden and mother nature are no longer producing, got no way to feed the “students”, without significant cash flow. There is quite alot of info on them on the net.

Apparently, they live a very base existence, way less than our forbears of 200 plus years ago. The log cabins my ancestors first lived in are like mansions compared to their hovels. In all these years, you’d think they would have learned enough skills to at least equal pioneers that first settled those mountains. And these are the skills they want to pass on?

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount

Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $10.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $10.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $10.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $10.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
