"What to say, what to say. We stayed with Elka and James for one night only, but I can tell you it was an incredible evening. They had a party with very good healthy food and even a little concert. It was so much fun. We got to meet so many amazing people at their place and they definitely care. Thanks a lot for the experience."

"Attended an event and had a very enjoyable time. Many people invited and most visiting from other countries as well. Enjoyed talking to many locals of JT, 29 and YV as well as the tourists. Thank You James Eric and Elka Wilder for the invite and hope to attend more in the future and thanks for opening up your home to all of us."
Review #2

Yucca Valley, CA

"Terrible!!!!!! Seriously, their dining chairs didn't match and the house had no almond milk in stock. James, Elka, and their friends come from different backgrounds and it's so incredibly offensive that they don't view the world the same way I do!! So if you're like me and only want to be around people who are just like you, please don't attend!"
