The Experience

I would like HELP finishing painting the house. Nothing hardcore. Simple task. Of course there's steps, like prepping the area, cleaning before and after the painting. Any other HELP needed are DIY. No exp or previous knowledge needed since I can teach most. If you already know, even better😎 Also, there's skills that you might have that I don't, and maybe we can put them in use to do something in the house. So PLEASE, whatever u know, tell me

The host was super friendly and respectful. Joshua is one of the most outgoing people you'll meet, he's super flexible and understanding as long as everything is communicated properly. He goes above and beyond with his people, would definitely do this one again in a close future. If you want to reconnect with nature and disconnect for a while this is definitely the place.

Before picking me up from the airport, he texted me Are You Hungry? But never offered any food. On the drive to his place, he told me about a girl who refused to shower and stunk up the place. He even told her that too. When I got there, I realized why she did that. The only bathroom in the small house with 6 other volunteers is in the guy's room so I wouldn't doubt if she had be SA recently and didn't feel comfortable having to walk between the beds ( 2ft space maybe) to go to the bathroom and shower. Got bite by a dog down the street and he didn't offer help but said I should call the cops
