    9. We will make direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would cause us to go blind, or become bankrupt and homeless.

    as long as I have my hammock, I am never homeless! (bankrupt - maybe!)

    Grant me the money to buy awesome cottage gear I can not make myself,
    Courage to DIY the things I can,
    And wisdom to know the difference.

    Twelve (big) steps is about the distance between trees that I use. That's my program.

    As I lay reading my latest hammock forums posts while snuggled into my downny goodness swinging every so gently in the breeze (i'm out camping on cape cod it's maybe a in the mid 40's low 50's rt now) I am reminded that our program is a program of attraction rather than promotion. When others see this new way of living I work w/ them if they are still unsure after trying our ways I encourage them to go back and try some more nights on the ground. It is usually then that they realize that they have found a new freedom and a new happiness.
