    * 🔗planning — 
    * 🔗idiots-guide — Simplified version ;-)
    * 🔗flocking — How to organize a subseason by yourself, instead of joining a planned one
    * XXX🔗triage


    Prepare for living outdoors & camping weather
    * Winters low temperature: sometimes 14°C in the night, but not less.
    * ... actually, if we are in the mountains again, nights go down to 8°C + possibly wet
    * ... so bring:
        1) synthetic sleeping bag (~600-800g for <50€ is fine)
        2) reliable night clothes (like synthetic leggings)
    * strong winds common — (synthetic/mountain style) light windstoppers work well.
    * bring a headlamp — (best with rechargeable batteries, or via USB)
### @@ordering buy 10 and be done with it [!!]

    Setting plans during camps
    * read & contribute to the next subseason plan:
        discuss any big direction ideas with others before the start of camp
    * always have something to do you can easily get to/from, when waiting: []
         (example: a book you can just pull out and continue for 5 minutes)
    * influence the plans actively

    * long-lasting laptop battery recommended (bring spares, if possible)
    * your stuff might fail - have spares & think it through
    * be prepared to also use other computers and devices
### maybe not so important


(A) GENERAL→ 14€/day, 420€/month

(B) YOU HAVE GOOD WORK→ 20€/day, 600€/month

(C) YOU ARE BROKE & SHARE GOALS→ 8€/day, 240€/month

This covers complete life costs (*excepts personal extras — booze, cigarettes, idiosyncratic expensive food, budget for that separate if you like.).

The variants depend on personal material circumstance and ensures inclusion of people with different focus & backgrounds.

These are not "prices", they are rounded long-term averages. You are covering personal consumables (→food, water, regular maintenance/repairs, fuels, ...) and contributing to the investment budget (→the infrastructure commons).

For new residents there is a 🔗membership.

More information, including complex rate calculation and historic costs data  → 🔗subfinance


    * Arrange travels and membership

* Communicate your availability (when do you want to come and for how long?)
    under http://totalism.org/planning []! 

* Contribute to the subseason pad:
    at http://next.totalism.org/
    (ideas about activities, projects, ...)

* Can you accept postal packages at your home address?
    Coordinate with CHT to see what you could buy and bring over.
    the project is always buying new equipment, see 🔗ordering
    (if it's costs more than you're due, you will be recompensated)
    (Especially if coming from DE & UK - cheap shops and shipping.)

* Get a flight/boat

* Fix your 🔗membership dues:
    Pay in advance, OR immediately when you reach the base.
    See 🔗donate for payment methods, ask info@totalism.org

    * Make your "Crew Survey" pad

Thinking & writing down the answers to these basic questions in advance turned out to be a good idea with previous crews.
Feel free to skip through.

* Create a Crew Survey pad: []!
    Do it here.
    Name the pad like "subseason prefix-your name" like "cht7a-david".
    The answers are not seen by anyone that does not have the link.
    If you prefer however, you can also send the answers by email.

* Copy the questions from below to the pad []!
    Please "clear authorship colors" (Crossed Eye button on top of pad) before you write your answers.
