Thanks for this write up! Calling out the need to “shift from a consumptive mindset to a participatory one” really puts into words something that I’ve experienced in my adult life when trying to create something as small as a group trip with my close friend group. I couldn’t figure out why I was frustrated, but I think you hit the nail on the head with that wording. Thanks for sharing your experience!

Thank you for the really good info about splitting rent and the challenges of getting people to participate. As a burner I "grok" that challenge.

Food for me is a real challenge as cooking is my least favorite and least proficient skill.

The real question is: Knowing what you know now, would you do it again?
