Frequently Asked Questions About Our Events
Question - Where
is this event?
Answer - After you
sign up you will get a document with all event details. The
address is only given to students who have paid a deposit. But
for your planning purposes we are near Azle Texas. That is just
north of Fort Worth.
Question - What is
the best airport to fly into?
Answer - The best
bet is Dallas-Fort Worth International (DFW) it is only about 35
minutes assuming traffic isn't at peak from our home. The only
other viable option is Dallas Love Field (DAL) this may save you money
if Southwest Flys direct from your airport but it is a longer
drive. I would plan on an 1 hour and 15 minutes or more despite
what google maps will tell you if you fly into Love Field.
Question - What
type of food is served at these events?
- The key word is meat but we have other stuff too.
Generally we serve eggs (from our own flock) for breakfast with bacon
and sausage and tortillas for breakfast with awesome local salsa and
fixings. We also include a selection of fruit, breakfast bars,
etc. Lunch is deli meats, chicken salad, left overs from dinner
the night before and other things. This year we are planning
some new things for lunch including awesome shredded chicken from our
own birds and Dorothy's amazing meat balls. Sometimes we have soups or
other similar items for lunch. Dinner is usually rotisserie
chicken one night, brisket another night and smoked pork shoulder the
other night. Generally some awesome sausage finds its way into
our menu as well. A full lunch and dinner are provided all three
course days. We provide only coffee, fruit and breakfast bars on
the first day for breakfast. We provide full breakfast on
Friday, Saturday and Sunday we provide coffee, breakfast bars, fruit
and left overs.
Question - What
are the camping conditions like?
Answer - The
key word is primitive. We allow tent camping on site just about
anywhere on our property. We have an outbuilding that we let
people put a cot or air mattress in but it usually gets pretty full
and it is first come first served. There are plenty of trees for
hammock camping as well. Most folks enjoy camping because you
can have adult beverages and not worry about driving and the people
are just awesome to hang out with. Most nights people end up
staying up late talking and having a lot of fun playing pool, darts,
spending time at the camp fire etc. November is usually pretty
comfortable temperature wise especially at night but it rains often so
be prepared for that. And be prepared for some cold nights!
Average Nov. Temps are 66 for the High and 43 for the low, but we have
seen Nov. Temps in the high 80s and occasionally lows in the 20s or
Question - Is
there a good hotel near by?
- There is a great holiday inn, we get you a group rate and it
varies but it is very nice hotel and we have normally gotten a rate of
about 82 dollars in the past plus tax. When you sign up just
indicate if you want a hotel so we have a head count for group rate
Question - Can
students share a rental car, a ride to the airport, a hotel room,
Sure but to be blunt we do not get involved in that. We have way
too much work to do so that you guys have a good experience when you
get here. I view it this way from the time you get on my land
till you leave it is my responsibility to make sure you learn, have
fun and are well fed. Off site I leave it to you to deal with
things. However, we have a private email list and many students
work out things like this between themselves on it. Make sure to
join it as soon as you get your instructions packet as their will be
information on it.
Question - I have
a question that isn't answered here, should I sign up, I don't want to
loose my deposit?
When I send out the instruction document you have 48 hours to review the document, if something is a
deal breaker you can cancel with a refund in the first 48
hours. After that this is my refund policy and I think it is as
fair as I can be with it. My events always sell out but the
closer we get the harder it is to back fill a no show. If I can
sell your spot I give you a refund, if I can't sell your spot due to
it being to close to the event date, I don't refund it.
Question - Will
you take bitcoin for this event? What about silver?
Answer - I
have a huge capital outlay on these evensts so I can't take silver. I
can only take PayPal for the deposit (you can use a credit card
without a paypal account) but I will take bitcoin by special
arrangement for the balance due but it will have to be at least one
week prior to the event. If you want to do this, email me for
