Directions and Parking
From 169 Highway south out of Overland Park (to the Louisburg exit) or from going south out of Olathe on 69 Highway: Go to Highway K68 and exit west to Lone Star Road, turn left and go to 303rd Street. Turn right on 303rd St, and go 2 miles (west) to Osawatomie Road. Turn left and go 1/2 mile and we're on the right.
PLEASE DRIVE SLOWLY INTO OUR DRIVE AS THERE ARE FREE RANGE FOWL THAT WANDER AROUND! (guess where your breakfast eggs are coming from!)
We will be directing parking a you arrive. Due to space and our love of the environment, please work to carpool. If you do not have someone to carpool with and are interested reach out to Sarah at firstname.lastname@example.org or Meredith at email@example.com
What to wear
Swimsuit, sandals, closed toe shoes, comfy clothes for hanging outside, pajamas, yoga clothes, whatever you want to ride home in. Optional to bring activewear or change clothes cause ya might get sweaty. There is a meditation meadow - if you plan to go on a walk we suggest long pants and closed toed shoes.
What are we eating
We will be having a farm to table dinner including vegetarian and paleo options and a vegetarian breakfast. We have done everything we can to respect all dietary restrictions. That said, there are 40 of you and we are human so if you are super strict and stressed about it, you may want to pack some of your favorite snacks. There isn't anywhere to run and grab something and once you have a sip of alcohol you are not welcome to drive. Also, we have snacks but if you did a 1000 calorie workout in the morning... I am not positive we have you covered.
What to bring
There will be a pillow per person but if you want your own or like to double (or triple) down, be sure to bring yours. Other option is to have one extra cocktail before you go to bed... eh? We have tons lanterns but if a flashlight interests you, cool, bring it.
We have homemade bugs spray (If you want some deet in your life, bring it, I might), natural sunscreen (thank you Hand and Land!) individual deodorant (Schmidts Naturals for the win!) and EMBR has gifted you all wipes to have clean feet when you go to bed.
We have plenty to drink including liquor, wine and light beer but if there is a special cocktail mixer or beer you would like we will have coolers for you to drop it in.
Things highly recommend to tote along:
- Camping chair
- Yoga mat
- Water bottle
- Sunscreen if you want a certain SPF
- Bug spray if you want a specific kind
- Pillow if you want more than one or your own
- Blanket to sit on
- Battery operated fan for sleeping
- Beer or mixer if you have a preference
Reach out with more questions, comments, suggestions for a good time.
invitation to disconnect
We will have two badass photographers from Black Coffee Photography on site so we invite you to put your phone away even if for a bit. This is an opportunity to let go, breath fresh air, connect with others and feel alive. Distance from technology might feel nice.
What not to bring
No cigs, no drugs, no fire arms, nothing stupid. Cool? Cool.
Respect the location
There are hella birds on location (like peacocks and shit) so please do not leave trash sitting around. They will be interested in eating it and we do not want harm them in any manner.
