Garth Bowles and his dog try to catch a rattlesnake in front of his permanent teepee house he built in Joshua Tree, California. Concealed beyond miles of desert, the 640-acre property he acquired acts as a sanctuary and retreat for all forms of spiritual seekers, healers, and travelers passing through. Living completely off the grid, Garth gets water from his underground wells and power from his solar panels for his two refrigerators, lights, CD player, and stove. Because he welcomes visitors with open arms, he openly accepts donations for food and calls himself “The Make-Do-King” because he says, “If I don’t have something, I make-it-do.”
