Come camp on the Sugar creek. I have been living primitive in a one room cabin here on the edge of town for about a year now. This place isn't for the faint of heart but comfortable and home to me. I am on the electric grid but the only running water is in the creek. There's an outhouse for, well, you know, and I'll heat a pot of water on the cinder block rocket stove to bath or just wash up in the creek. Part of what I'm working on this summer is water filtration and solar heating. Last summer I spent a lot of time landscaping and working on getting the place remodeled inside and out. I am trying to salvage waste materials where possible and follow a philosophy that makes beauty out of what others see as garbage. I'm looking for people that might be interested in helping with anything from pouring concrete to painting, to coming up with cool ideas of your own. I don't really mind if you just want to stay a day or two and camp and relax either though. We can practice Tai Chi and yoga on the river bank or play guitar by a camp fire. I have room for a couple of tents and a cot and some extra floor space. I won't provide meals but am definitely open to cooking and shopping together and sharing. I can likely provide rides to and from the airport and have some availablility for sight seeing as well for people interested in Amish country or regional hiking attractions.
