The 52 DuBois Housing Special:
$100 (suggested) for the Week
We have a limited time offer, if you reserve now, to make room for you in main house. It will be more homey than a motel, and cheaper.
People have asked me about staying in the house, and what they can "pay" to stay there. To me, it's not like that, I would like to make this a bit friendlier, and less formal. I do however, have a budget that I'm trying hard to manage. In the spirit of transparency, that budget is downloadable (MS Xcel).
What I would like to suggest is that you donate $100 (or so) to the Truth Gathering, and then you are welcome to stay in the house, as long as you like. I have it from the 9th to the 20th. I take PayPal, [sanderhicksdotcom AT gmail.com] I will need paid reservations in advance. The house is filling up so, here are more details:
Pix of the house at 52 Dubois are now online at Flickr.
For the peak times of the weekend, the beds will likely be occupied by the presenters. But everyone is encouraged to bring an air mattress, which will be quite comfortable once inflated. The house has plenty of upstairs rooms. We will have some for women, some for men. There are two bathrooms, and we will have a personal chef for the house, my friend Lumino Jameson. Plus, my homebrew Truth Beer will be on hand, while supplies last.
Does this work for you? I am extended this invitation to just a couple people right now. I want to have a communal feel, but also not have it been an out of control crash pad with 60 people there....ha ha.
Here are a few more details to communicate:
It will be fun, and relaxing. The house is walking distance to the "downtown" of the charming village of Livingston Manor.
Livingston Manor, NY is located in the northwest region of Sullivan County, about 2:15 from New York City. The quaint hamlet, which has undergone a significant renaissance over the past decade, is our gateway to the 'Great Outdoors'. The Willowemoc, one of the 'Big 3' fly fishing rivers, runs through the center of town, and the Beaverkill and Neversink rivers are only a short drive away. The Sullivan County section of the Catskill Park starts northeast of 'the Manor.' The Catskill Arts Society and the Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum are located here.
The area surrounding Livingston Manor is generally more wooded to the north and east, shifting to areas of open, rolling farmland to the southwest towards Callicoon Center. Overall, this part of Sullivan County is sparsely populated.
The Debruce Road runs east out of Livingston Manor towards Debruce and Willowemoc, and follows the Willowemoc River. John Lennon and Yoko Ono once had a home on the Debruce Road.
