    My son has plans for the weekend which he is going to try and rearrange/ If we come, is there a family group (mother-son) discount similar to the couples discount?
    Do you recommend any campgrounds in the area?

    I probably wont know until Thursday for sure, do you think there will still be space for the two of us if I wait that long?

    Ive been a prepper since the late 60’s )bought a copy of the cookbook in the UCLA bookstore back then) My son is tolerant of my crazy ideas. I promised him I would shut-up about all this stuff if he would attend the two day workshop with me.

    Hope it works out….

    As of now, there is still plenty of space, but pre-paid sign ups are accelerating and come Saturday morning we may have a situation where we do not have room for everyone of the last minute sign-ups, so if waiting for Saturday to sign up, I would make sure to get there early! Good local camping at Boca and Stampede reservoirs off HWY 80 a few miles towards Reno from Truckee. Chilly/frosty nights so bring a warm sleeping bag if camping.

    This is our first joint workshop. No on-line option for this one, but hope to offer that in the future. We may produce a DVD set, but still up in the air as to whether it will all fall together in time for a quality DVD production.

    Do I need to pack a lunch? Why is the workshop not listed on the River Run website?

    Tony, lunch is not provided. I am figuring that we will do a subway sandwich order for people who wish to chip in, or they may bring a bag lunch if they wish. The workshop is featured under upcoming events at the River Farm School web site, with details shown at:

    We have not sent a date or location yet, but based on the early sign ups for this one, another workshop is sure to follow within a few months.

    Hi Mat,
    Please consider to do a workshop on the East Coast (tri state area or PA). We have quite a few people here who would like to attend the workshop.
    I saw the flyer on Kerry’s blog last Sunday and it was not enough time to book a flight to NM for my family.

    Definitely considering doing workshops on East Coast. Had to start somewhere, so we started close to home.

    Hello Matt, myself and my daughter will be attending your seminar this weekend. Is it primarily outside ? what do we need to bring besides lunch, writing materials, ect. We are looking forward to it.
    Thank you.

    Brandon, Mixed inside outside, so wear layers. Bring lunch or chip in for Subway Sandwiches. Writing materials for sure. Other than that, nothing special.

    See you tomorrow!

    I live in Pennsylvania and would also go to a east coast seminar.
    I heard the interview with carry cassidy too late to be able to purchase airline tickets.

    We had a fine workshop, and hope to put on a similar workshop next year on the East Coast. Check in after the first of the year to see if our plans for more workshops at other locations have made any progress.

    I live two hours outside of Chicago and would LOVE to attend your seminars. Any plans on coming to Midwest?

    No immediate plans, but quite possible it will happen sometime next year. Sign up for my email list and when we start expanding seminars (this was the first one) to other locations, we will let you know.

    We’re running out of time for preparing ourselves and those of us that work 40-50 hrs week can’t make it to workshops. Can you let me know when its possible to obtain Mr. Miller’s workshop Critical Decision Making training is put onto a DVD…I don’ care so much about the “quality” as long as I can hear and see the instruction. This is very important information he has and I agree it can save your life someday…and someday soon. Please make the DVD available for purchase I will be very thankful. Thanks for the good work from Mr. Stein and Mr. Miller. If you come to Midwest…I will take the time off to attend as well.

    We are working on it, and should have it within one month. Forgive our slow speed, but doing this on a shoestring budget, and have never produced DVDs before.

    It is available all over the place. Any health food store,, etc I have no personal experience with this, so can’t recommend a brand or say it has done me any good.
