Meals are served buffet style in the Ranch Cookhouse. The dorm rooms are small and spartan (with two each of the following: twin bed, nightstand, table, chair, closet area). You will be sharing a room with a lawyer of the same gender. The men’s and women’s restrooms and showers are located at the end of the hallway. We provide a pillow and bedding (towels, pillowcase, sheets, blanket, bedspread), but you need to bring your own toiletries (e.g., shampoo, soap, lotion, deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrush, earplugs). A laundry room is available for your use and laundry soap is provided. Due to space limitations, TLC is unable to provide housing to accommodate your family or friends.
Casual Dress: Plan to dress in comfort, not in style. When you’re indoors, sneakers (or good walking shoes), jeans, t-shirts and sweatshirts are appropriate. Bring a bathrobe, too. When you’re outdoors, cotton clothing is fine for warm days but has minimal insulating value, especially when wet. In June, temperatures in Dubois range from 70° F (average high) to 39° F (average low). The average daytime temperature is 54° F and the evenings are chilly. Bring wool and synthetic clothing that can be comfortably layered. Optional outdoor gear includes: rain/wind jacket and pants, down or fleece coat, water-resistant hiking boots, good socks, long underwear, winter hat, winter gloves or mittens, baseball cap, flashlight, water bottle, camera, daypack, sunscreen and insect repellant. For class time, bring a notebook or journal and a pen. Bring a printout of your flight itinerary, coins for the soda machine, and a phone card to make long-distance calls (because cellular service is limited and Internet access is not available, except in emergency situations). If you’re a musician, bring your instrument!
LOCATION: 105 miles NE of Jackson and 75 miles NW of Riverton, both which have airports and are 1.5 - 2 hours away. RENTAL CARS: Rental car agencies are located in Jackson. Driving directions can be found on the TLC website.
