We have started construction on the Berry Patch. These posts will guide the wire that holds our raspberry vines up. We can't wait to start planting and enjoying such a delicious treat. We also have started working on a tutorial so you can grow your own! More to come...

We recently prepped our two campsites for campers. Campsite One has a fire ring, bench, two chairs, and a good view of Beaverdam Creek. Campsite Two has a bench, a double-seated chair, fire ring and is nestled further inland, while still being close to the water. For $5 per person per night, you can rent a campsite with a stack of firewood included. We only ask that you "Leave No Trace," and leave the campsite in good condition (fire is out, no litter, don't kill any wildlife or plants). Below are pictures of each site,. Call 706-489-1136 to make a reservation.

Due to our previous hosting company turning into an evil money eating machine, we have transferred our website to a much more reliable and ubiquitous company: Google. The only problem is that Bluehost (the evil hosting company that we previously used) has hijacked all of our domain names. Therefore, to access our website for the time being, please go to:
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and we hope that our domain names will be back in our possession soon. Thankfully, we at least have "Life Emulation" trademarked with the USPTO.

An Earthship is a type of building developed by architect Mike Reynolds of Earthship Biotecture. They are radically sustainable buildings that provide shelter, water, food, electricity and sanitation without any inputs from the grid. We encourage you to check out their website at Earthship.com to learn more. Our founder spent three months working with Mr. Reynolds and his crew in Taos, NM in order to bring this technology to Life Emulation Research and begin building sustainable structures in our community. Our first building will be modeled after the "Simple Survival Model," and plans are available from Earthship Biotecture here. While Earthships save money and resources by being built out of recycled materials, the trade off is that they are very labor intensive. However, it is fun labor if you work with a team and make a party out of it! We invite anyone interested in learning about Earthships, or anyone just looking for a fun way to spend the day, to join us on our work days which will be posted here. For now, we are waiting on some equipment to be repaired so we can level the build site. Below is the build site before the excavation.

Hello faithful supporters of Life Emulation Research! A new season is upon us, and some very exciting changes are just around the corner. We have a new website coming, we are starting the creation of a "handbook," we are expanding and revamping our online store, we are starting an Earthship inspired build and we are going to begin documenting the build online for everyone to learn how to do it themselves! Stay tuned for all of these exciting changes...
