Beautiful Floyd County was predicted by Edgar Caycee to be a clearing spot in the future when times began to change, and the future is now! Crystals under the earth are very healing. This two acre spot on Old Epperly Mill Road is five minutes by car from downtown Floyd, which consists of a one stop-light four corners of routes 221 and 8, a country store a hardware store, and a coffee loft; health food store Harvest Moon which started out as a coop is near by. The land itself is a wildlife sanctuary and has one camper and a couple of brightly painted sheds as well as a communely painted art car. Otherwise you are free to park at the top and roam down and pitch tents and enjoy the birds and crickets. Bring bikes to go along the rolling back dirt road past the old mill, your neighbors the cows, and the gushing brook. Make friends with the current owners and enjoy the swimming hole. You have to make your own site so expect primitive. You can hike down and make your private spot. And we also have a tent that sleeps ten that can be used for an additional 10-15 per person per night. And an outdoor standing canopy tent you can cook under or hang out in if rains, where we have a library of feminist books and publications. We offer electricity where you can charge anything you need, and wifi you can use near and around the camper, on our patio. You are also invited to add your personal touch to the art car or any other painting, gardening or art project we have in process. FMI see on facebook, Second Annual Handmaids Gate Gathering. Be sure to click on the Events Page to get the vibe here. Thanks. You can find a site anywhere on the land....pick your own degree of communality or privacy!
