    Accommodation

    The modified ocean container ("BirdNest") always needs upkeep but nevertheless presently offers bed, moderate kitchen, sink, bath/shower & toilet plus computer desk, Swamp Cooler & WIFI Is able to accommodate two guests. Bad news is that I am NOT offering meals—since I'm NOT a good cook—but good news is that I WILL offer filtered water & tea on demand & help out with food shopping for my precious WorkAwayers who can cook at home in the "BirdNest!"

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Bus is available but is tedious: 1 hour ride to Palm Spring, 1/2 hr. ride to Joshua Tree park — Bus Info: 760-366-2395 —frequent local artistic & MUSICAL events occur frequently; Thai Buddhist Temple is also in the vicinity. Shop selling beer & chips is walking distance away. There is PLENTY of desert area near "BirdNest" so no need to drive far... just cross the street & it'x desert ALL the way to the hill behind my house!
