    If you bought the land it's by definition not a squat. But it sounds cool. Im down in imperial county a couple hours away. I'm in your area relatively often. Maybe I'll hir you up sometime.

    Bike Traveler Jamboree?

    A bike meetup is always a cool idea but you can get to the jambo any number of ways and there will be carpooling. So don't think that if you dont have a car you cant get to jambo.

    For the past four years, we've been meeting up in Slab City, California for our annual gathering of travelers from the online community Squat the Planet. This year we are breaking with tradition slightly with a pre-jambo meet-up at Slab City Library, taking a stop at another meet-up point in...

    Holy crap. I hit 10k subscribers on YouTube, and finished building a new deck! I'll be doing a video shoot today, and tomorrow I'm going to the city to get my prosthetic leg worked on, afterward I'll be eating fancy food and drinking fine booze- possibly with a date. Jeez, what a week!

    If the mining district excursion goes down, I'd be bringing my bus out and I'll be able to haul out fucktons of water and supplies so that we don't have to make too many town runs. If we need to resupply, or you need some modern comforts, the nearest town to this location is only about a 30...

    Alright. Picture this if you will; A large swath of BLM land in the desert which is home to a mining district which was abandoned over a 100 years ago. The only way out is on what remains of a mule trail which adventurer J. Smeaton Chase once rode his own mule down. This area is quite remote...

    As the season changes and the inevitable nomadic shift occurs, I find myself lonely, determined, inspired and apprehensive. Yes, I've survived Slab summers before. Doesn't make it suck any less. I could sure use some internet penpals to help keep my wits.

    I'd like to point out that the current temp in Prince George is a balmy 22F (-5C), while the next nearest city- Whitehorse- is -13F (-25C). It is also about a 15 hour drive (on a clear summer day) from Prince George with naught but a few bush camps and gas stations in-between as far as...
