Several people have expressed an interest in the Boot Camp, and the time and place now make that possible. I now live in an area that it easily accessible from the Portland, Salem or Oregon Coastal areas with plenty of local businesses to facilitate room and board needs, or with the option to return home each evening if you live close enough.
