A Midnight Sun Blog Camp?

Hi, I'm Kim from *Numinosity*

I'm throwing out the idea to have a Midnight Sun blog camp at my home in Delta Junction, Alaska next summer. 

The ideal time for me would be around Solstice time the weekend of June 17, the following weekend or 4th of July weekend. The nights are longest then and the weather can be at it's best (well, not this year)

I have beds for five or six and even more room for camping or floor space with pads. We live an easy 100 miles from Fairbanks which is the nearest airport.  It's 6 hours from Anchorage.

It's a rural area with stunning scenery and wilderness in most directions.

Since it's a long haul for just about everybody I'm offering up lodging for a couple of days on either end of the chosen weekend. Of course you may want to take advantage of  touring this vast state if you're getting all the way here.

I have studio space and some supplies if you're feeling like projects and of course the photo opportunities are as vast as the surroundings. I can even show you how to make a glass bead.

My road off of the Alaska Highway.

The Garaj Mahal where you would be staying (no snow will be present!)

I also have a place in  Bisbee, Arizona that I could offer up for a blog camp in the winter but the lodging would have to be separate from my house as we don't have the room to put anyone up.

coming soon: blog camp berlin!

photo by kristina of no penny for them
i lifted it from her flickr, totally without asking, but i hope she forgives me. 
that's it! blog camp berlin is a go!! we'll meet in berlin on friday, september 17 for three days of cafés, sights and loads and loads of photos. oh, and nonstop laughter and intelligent conversation. we'll most likely rent a big apartment through one of those sites where you can do that and share the expenses, but kristina (of the above brilliant photo/blog) will be our official hostess and show us around (she just doesn't have room for us to stay with her).

please confirm with me if you're indeed coming, so i can find us an apartment that's the right size. you know the email address. :-)
