The Space"After you have exhausted what there is in business, politics, conviviality, and so on, have found that none of these finally satisfy... what remains? Nature remains." ~Walt Whitman
With no electricity, television, Internet, phone lines, cell service, or clocks, this is a unique experience for those looking to truly disconnect! As you cross the wooden bridge and enter the meadow you find yourself in a forgotten time.. a time before email, meetings, texting, social media, and mobile phones. Be careful! Your life may never be the same..
