Located in a remote desert in eastern California, stay in an old mining camp to help make improvements to the camp and water system and restore the old cabins. There is running water, shower, toilet and cabins to stay in, or you can camp out on the lawn overlooking the valley. Lots of fun history here and no internet or cell signal for most carriers. Help restore a piece of history and have a great and unique experience while doing it.
I need people with masonry skills, carpentry, framing, electrical, tree care as well as people who don't have a skill, but are willing to help out and learn a skill along the way.
I can give you tours of the valley or direct you where to go. There's lots of old mines, hiking places, a Salt lake with old salt and borax works to see. There's even hot springs to soak in after a days work.
If you're able to aid with materials for the camp, that's a real plus as my resources are very limited.
It's a unique place in the world that my family has worked in for almost 100 years. I would definitely like to give you the opportunity to experience it in exchange for help.
