Living out here on the mesa, one thing we don’t have a lot of are neighbors (we call community members). All of us that are out here try to help each other. One way we try to help is by having community events, including a silent auction during the Nomad Gathering in the Desert . The hope is to use money we get from the silent auction to either buy long range walkie-talkies so all of us out here have a way to communicate if there is an issue. Right now we all rely on our cell phones and some don’t have service where they live. This will give us all a life line to each other.
Here are the ones we are looking at.

Not everyone out here has away to keep the walkies charged. Our plan is to setup a charging station on our solar and have an extra walkie so if need be they can change out an uncharged walkie for a charged one.
We also would like to use any extra funds to help fix the roads. These are county roads out here, but the county does not maintain them. Right now a neighbor with a small tractor has been grading them.
Community events and fund raisers include:
Silent Auction during Nomad Gathering
West Mesa Haunted Hay Ride
Dusty Nail General Store isn’t yet raising anything towards community funds. But all the community members can sell their products within the store. We are hoping to add more community products as we grow.
We also talked that once we are up and going a % of all sells will go towards the community funds.
Also some of the community members offer services to campers like meals delivered to your campsite.
