For the past three years, Grimerica has hosted what has come to be known as Contact at the Cabin, or CAC. It’s a meeting of guests/podcasters/fans mingling ideas and strategies about controversial topics and ancient fables over the course of a long weekend. The Brothers of The Serpent have since joined this tradition. This year we descend on Duck Creek Village, Utah to explore Bryce and Zion Canyons under the cover of dark with David W Mathisen and Brandon Powell.

Zion Canyon

Many Zion visitors like to stay for sunset, to catch some final photos of Zion’s cliffs glowing vivid neon orange in the late day sun. Then, as the last light fades from the sky, a steady stream of cars files out of the park, as visitors head home or on to their next destination. But for those few who stay later, or spend the night in one of Zion’s campgrounds, an entirely different and memorable Zion experience awaits; the dark night sky, filled with thousands of stars, above the jagged silhouette of cliffs.


Bryce Canyon

Bryce Canyon is the ultimate place to learn about and enjoy the splendor of the night sky. Far from the light pollution of civilization, protected by a special force of park rangers and volunteer astronomers, Bryce Canyon is a sanctuary for natural darkness.

The night sky at Bryce is so dark we can see thousands of stars on a moonless night! Here the Milky Way extends from horizon to horizon like a vast silver rainbow. Planets glow brightly in the sky and starlight illuminates the night.

Whats Included?

This year at our Contact at The Cabin 2020 event we will be offering all meals and some snack to get everyone through the stay (please contact us with dietary requirements) as well as transportation from Las Vegas International Airport to the venue in Duck Creek.  We will provide transportation to and from the parks for stargazing as well as back to Las Vegas International Airport.  All park entrance fees included.

There will be multiple myth retellings by David as well as two nights of stargazing in the parks with optional early morning trips available by signup.  By day we will also be treated to Wim Hoff training by our friend Brandon Powell which will include some cold training with ice pools as well as the breathe work.
