Cleanup[edit]

This article is full of spelling and grammar errors, such as run-on sentences, rife with undefined terms, rambling, lacking links to many relevant articles, and moreover very unencyclopedic: reads more like an advertisement.

I don't know much about East Wind, but I am doing some grammar/spelling cleanup. RedCt 17:28, 9 October 2006 (UTC)

I agree - material is very sparse. Should the article be flagged as a stub? Also the part "clothing is not used at all" contradicts the earlier statement that clothing is provided to members. Jeffhoy 21:44, 31 October 2006 (UTC)

Population[edit]

How many people live here? If its less than 50, I nominate this article for deletion as non-notable. ---- Fred Felcher

Right now we have a population of 60+ members. 75.121.131.76 (talk) 17:23, 6 May 2011 (UTC) Ruth (current member May 2011)

Fred, what possible reason could there be to delete this article? I know it is a real place. I was a member (off and on) from 1983 to 1987. Edit it if you want. Add or correct information if you want. But why censor useful information that someone has taken the time to post? - Philip Wilson

It made National Geographic Magazine. That makes it notable alone. Population is between 60-70 as you would know from viewing their website. --flyingember

I happen to be an ex-member and am still in contact with eastwind... membership is in the 40's right now.--Mrdude 18:15, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

I'm a current member and can say population is hovering around 60 people at this time. May, 3 2008 -- Dan

This article and total contents are useful and important to relatives of those who reside at EW. Statistics such as these are useful in determining the viability of such an ideal. There are few examples of this lifestyle within our country. Uh, Dan, check your calendar... unless you guys figured out how to time travel your date is incorrect. Today's date is March 20, 2008--xanderspop24.229.181.72 (talk) 15:57, 21 March 2008 (UTC)

Location[edit]

Don't remove the location of the community. It is correct. The 2005 National Geographic article references a Lick Creek. If you dig enough there's a stream map that shows the location of that creek in the county. On a bend in the creek is a large fielded area. You turn onto County road 530 and stay to the right you will end up on county road 547, which ends at East Wind.
