So in between the time traveling and turning into a child again, I was working on Dino Island, and making things a little more secure there for visitors. I had some help this weekend (thank you guys!!) Long-term goals are to work on the hotel and use magic to ward it off and get it back up to how it was so people can do the occasional overnight visit, but we're not there yet. But
I'd like to do a less fancy trial run, 3-night thing, in June? If Vallo cooperates! Starting on the 2nd and coming back on the morning of the 5th, we'll stay on the island and make a full camping and dinosaur education experience out of it! There's two secure sleeping options and we're going to try both, one's a tall outpost that's kind of like a fancy treehouse, and one's a secure bunker deep in the woods. The bunker has bunk beds and can sleep 20, there's a generator, running water, and two bathrooms there!
The treehouse outpost sleeps... ehhh probably about the same if people don't mind sleeping bags squeezed in. Probably about 12-16 if we want a little walking room. We'll be bringing water and food, and there's a warded outhouse. It has the best views, and the high chance of waking up to the herd of sauropods coming through and grazing!
You don't have to pay anything for this, just sign up early so we know how much food to bring! I let Miss Paliviana from the Crossed Quills know what we're doing and her nephew wants to come and she offered to load up a big cooler of food for us.
Disclaimers: The sleeping areas are secure but there are a lot of large dinosaurs that live there in as much freedom as I can offer them and we're going to be in their homes, so I can't say it's danger-free, but I can promise to keep everyone safe as long as they follow the rules and protocols in place. There's no age range in place but I can only handle one toddler at a time so uhhh anyone under 12?? needs an adult with them. Anyone who doesn't follow the rules will be brought back to the mainland and not be given the opportunity to return.
What to bring: You have to be able to carry it yourself and I suggest keeping it to one bag a person. Sleeping bag, pillow, clothes for a few days, that sort of thing. I know they sell magical options that are light and small, if you want to go that route!
So yeah! Questions and signups here, thanks!
