What to be prepared for & Some general guides

* Outdoors & camping weather:
    * sometimes 14°c in the night, but not really less
    * ... actually, if we are in the mountains again, nights got down to 8°c + possibly wet
    * ... meaning, come useful will be:
        1) not the worst sleeping bag (synthetics ~600-800g for ~50€ seem fine)
        2) non-cotton warm night clothes (like synthetic leggings)
    * strong winds often. (synthetic/mountain style) light windstoppers rock that stuff.
    * bring a headlamp, with rechargeable batteries or by USB

* Setting plans during camps:
    * the next subseason plan holds:
        if you have suggestions about, or even problems with any part, act/discuss 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

* Equipment:
    * 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

* Contributions:
    You will cover personal costs (food, consumables, maintenance/repairs budget) & contribute to investment budget (expanding the project's infrastructure).
    This means:
        A) BASIC:
            ~ 15€/day | 450€/month
        B) ENCOURAGED (if you have work):
            ~ 20€/day | 600€/month
        C) MINIMUM (if you are broke):
            ~ 9€/day | 270€/month
    This covers all basic life costs.
    This does *not* cover personal extras (booze, cigarettes, idiosyncratic expensive food...), so if you want that, budget for it.
    For new residents there is a 🔗membership.

    If you want, see 🔗subfinance for much more detailed info.




BEFORE SUBSEASON


    Arrange travels and membership

* Add your availability:
    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
    []!

    Pay in advance, OR immediately when you reach the base.
    See 🔗donate for payment methods, ask info@totalism.org

    Personal Preparation & Crew Survey

Thinking about these questions in advance turned out to be a good idea with previous residents.
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.
