FAQ Fall Equinox Campout

How do I get there?

See complete directions at the bottom of this page. Getting there can be very challenging for some. The route is paved most of the way but not the last mile which is steep and narrow in places. Any vehicle can make it if you drive very slowly. And of course if you have a four-wheel or all-wheel drive bring that. If you don't want to drive then use our carpool sign up HERE

Do you have a refund or cancellation policy?

Cancellations before 9/6  will receive a half refund. After that, no refund is possible. If you cancel at the last minute due to illness or emergency you will receive credit for a future campout.

I"m not feeling well, should I come anyway?

No, absolutely not.. Stay at home and rest. We will see you at the next campout when you are well.

Can I bring my kids and are they really free?

Yes we love kids and families and we offer our support to families by making children free.

Is there a kid's program or childcare available?

No and we are totally counting on you to take full responsibility for your children and their well being while at the campout. You commit to having your children supervised and cared for at all times.

Can I take pictures?

Yes, and by that we mean that a mostly organic, vegetarian (vegan/gf options) breakfast, lunch and dinner are provided on each full day of the campout. On the first day of camp only dinner will be served and on the last day breakfast and lunch but no dinner.

What's this "meal shift" thing and does everyone have to do it?

Yes everyone in attendance will help prepare one meal and cleanup one meal during the campout. This keeps costs down and many find it to be a wonderful way to connect with others and contribute to our collective nourishment. It will all be scheduled and organized when we are all together at camp.

Directions:

 

** NOTE the private road up to the property is a combination of dirt and pavement. It is traversable by all vehicles except the last mile. An all wheel drive or 4-wheel drive is preferred for that section, but not necessary. Mini coopers, Prius, and other low to the ground vehicles all have made it. Simply drive slowly and watch for oncoming vehicles as it is single lane in many places.

 

The property is on Skyview Road above Boulder Creek. There are no street addresses but you can still use your phone for directions. Apple maps is the only accurate one though! Simply ask for directions to "Skyview Rd, California 95006" and it will take you all the way to the bullet car. We'll have signs posted to guide you the rest of the way. Just go left at that point instead of right and then follow the signs...you're almost there! You can also enter the GPS coordinates 37°11'12.4"N 122°05'29.8"W and that gets you pretty much right to our property. Note that if you try Google for directions it will miss a very key hard left turn off Deer Creek Road onto Ramble Road so be super mindful and use these written directions below to help in that section!

FOLLOW THE SUN ...look for our sun signs to help guide you on the way up!

 

Here are the written directions:

• From Bear Creek Road turn  onto Deer Creek Road (unmarked private road)

• 2.1 mi to left on Ramble Road (extremely sharp left)

◦ This is about 1/3 mile past the THIRD BRIDGE

◦ Ramble is not signed, but it is a paved left, extremely sharp and steep

• 1.6 mi up Ramble (and I do mean up)

◦ First half is paved; rougher road after the halfway point

◦ You don’t need to go through any closed gates, just stay on the main road

• Left on Skyview, at the top; there’s a sign and the bullet car is un-missable

◦ Don't go up the part with all the red reflectors

◦ Road follows the ridge 0.2 miles

◦ You'll see our sun sign and arrow directing you to turn right onto the property

◦ Proceed to the check in tent
