This experience is not for the weak! Something I wish I was made more aware of was that there is no running water. You go #1 outside and #2 in a bucket. You also have to shower out of a bucket. Something Keith nor any other volunteers I had messaged made clear which I found…odd. I really loved Keith as a host. He was a very great guy, who was welcoming and easy to get along with. The nature around the property was beautiful. His fur friend was lovely. The work was not very hard and as expected. I did not stay my whole time due to the water situation. so keep that in mind!

Overall I had a great time. The hours were set ahead of time and pretty consistent and I was able to spend plenty of time exploring the surrounding area.
