Camping sites at Quite Valley Ranch are included in the cost of colloquium admission. Facilities include very basic toilets and showers. You will need a tent, bedding and probably some sort of mattress (such as a Therma-rest, etc.) to make yourself comfortable. Camping areas will be designated "early to bed" or "late night" so that attendees will have the opportunity to sleep or play as they choose.
Meat-free meals will be prepared in and served from Kerrville's fully-equipped staff kitchen that can serve up to 500 on washable dinnerware. Austin's beloved chef Jim O'Brien ("JimO") has over 20 years experience preparing wonderful meals for large groups. Dedicated macrobiotic kitchen queen MaryAnn Justman of Rose Catering will help us seek out local and organic groceries. Hop Kleinhauser, natural building gypsy chef, will bake bread with the help of volunteers.
Cell phone service is available on site.
Wireless internet is available in certain areas.
If you prefer to stay in a hotel, the town of Kerrville is approximately 15 miles away. Fredericksburg (35 minutes away), an old German settlement popular for its shops and limestone masonry architecture, also has many accommodation options.
RV Camping is available at Quiet Valley Ranch RV Park. At last report, rates were $10 per night ($15 per night for a 50-amp hookup). Please make your own arrangments. Other RV camping may be available in the area as well - check the Kerrville Convention & Visitors Bureau.
Maps to swimming hole locations, Bar-B-Q venues and other points of local interest will be provided.
