Kieth was very kind. If you think of going I just think it takes a certain type of person since it's soo remote and far from a town and when I was there there wasn't any running water. There is still water you would have to take a modified shower. The work was easy and I actually enjoyed doing it and Keith was super welcoming. I would just ask more questions about what it's like before you go.

Ellie was a wonderful person to host. Sweet nice hard working person to help with the Earthship. Wish I had more like her coming up. Your always welcome back up. Hope to have running water for you if you come back. Safe travels. Keith
