Do you live around central Idaho OR would you like to travel to central Idaho? (I know I would like to… le sigh).
Then you should Join us THIS MAY for Idaho BaseCamp’s Cord Wood Building Workshop.
That’s right folks, we will be sharing natural building techniques AND using local materials. I think it’s time to unwrap that parka you’ve been sporting all winter and casually throw on your super cool spring windbreaker - in slow motion of course. Ain’t nothing better than a little wind blowing in the hair, some hard labor and LEARNING all about natural building from the brilliant Jesse Armstrong and Mat Gershater. JESSE ARMSTRONG AND MAT GERSHATER Y’ALL!
Join us at BaseCamp as we are begin construction on a 400 square foot permanent cottage on the upper property. We’ve got plenty of yurts, it’s time for some hand built walls!
Come play in the gentle waters of the Lost River, get lost in the Riparian Forest, collect heart shaped rocks and “just breathe” while hiking in the neighboring open range property. Sounds lovely doesn’t it? Did I mention there is a Wood Fired Hot Tub? You’re sold.
Basecamp is nestled between Ketchum ID and Mackey ID. Come play with us! We need your help. You need our knowledge. We are a good fit.

Hey guys, check out what a little collaboration and great minds can achieve.
Would love to start up a relationship with BLM. Our Idaho Base Camp (www.idahobasecamp.org) project is just getting it’s feet off the ground and this type of relationship could benefit all collaborators.

From Skyscrapers to Forests: Introducing Inner City Youth to Nature
Oregon State University recently recognized the BLM-Oregon for its work with the Inner City Youth Institute or ICYI to introduce young people to fields of study and careers in natural resources.
The BLM received the OSU Extension Service Cooperator Award for its work that began back in 1995 as a partnership between the BLM and ICYI in collaboration with the U.S. Forest Service, the Pacific Northwest Research Station, the Urban League of Portland and Portland Public Schools.
The BLM provided access to laboratories and facilities on public lands to help inner city youth study nature first-hand. In addition, the BLM provided critical financial assistance through OSU to support on-the-ground, outdoor educational activities as well as job-shadowing and career mentoring with BLM professionals.
Also, the BLM supported the annual Natural Resources Camp hosted by OSU that is designed to give inner city youth a college experience and create a safe atmosphere where the students can develop leadership skills, gain confidence, and hone teamwork abilities.
Since 1998, the BLM supported the programs and outreach that have successfully provided natural resources education and experience to youths from the Portland metro area.
Thank you to everyone who helped make this program a great success – and who knows, we may very well have provided the spark that launches the career of a future BLM State Director!

I have a very good friend who has taught me the art of preparation. His name is Murphy, he has a Law and he is a dick.
Long story short, I have finally settled down in a quant little brooklyn room after years of nomadic living (Thank you friends for your couches - large and small). I cannot express how happy I am to sit back and “take a breather” from moving sublet to sublet to sublet to sublet to sublet to sublet to…well you get the point.
Each night around 1am I would rush home from work and spent 30 - 45 minutes making this small room a home. I have finally reached a point where I am happy with how it looks and feels. The simple act of throwing on some horizontal stripes and gathering my plants back from their baby sitters has given the room a sense of balance.
Enter Murphy - Stage left.
This is the part of the story where the radiator explodes and purges gallons of rusty pipe water all over my white duvet. Most of the rust came off, but there is a nasty stain and it looks like someone took a big ole steamy - nevermind.
Come on. Look at this.
Well After hours of lemon juice and salt rubs, and a visit to the dry cleaner (free visit to get an estimate) I determined the best plan of action was a $2 box of fabric dye. So, although I loved the white cover, i think we have a success story on our hands.
Only cost me about 5 dollars in total (including lemons) to bring this duvet back to life (Wipes brow).
Okay, Murphy - what’s next?
After collecting all of my things out of storage, I began to redesign my bedroom. The addition of the stripes on the wall not only have made this small brooklyn bedroom look a lot bigger, but have also given it a balance that makes the room feel peaceful. It is a great contrast to all the rusted lanterns, ropes, reclaimed wood shelves, rocks, and vintage items hanging over the desk across from the bed. Plus, I bought sample sized paint, so the project only cost $11. Come on now.
After 3 years LunesMartes the dinosaur is FINALLY reading something outside of his assignments. PROUD DAD!
Oh how I missed you. Welcome to Brooklyn. #turkey #tea #doubleboiler
While sports happen, I will be listening to the Jurassic Park Soundtrack and will be moving into my new semi-permanent room in Brooklyn. Happy as a clam.
