    Hey everyone! I hit the road in my van a few days ago, and living on the road has been great so far! I’m gonna go to the slabs some time in November, December, or January, and I plan on spending the winter there. I’m looking for camp to join while I’m there. I’ve been to the slabs once...

    Are the slabs still the same?

    It's been a while since I been on here. The last time I was here I was running under freedude2011. I found a good life for awhile but it's all ended abruptly a week ago. So now here I am with questions. My biggest one is are the slabs the same or have they changed. Thought I found a place in...

    When does it reach high temperatures in Slab City

    Hey there! I’m hoping to hit the road again in April or May. I really want to visit the slabs again (I went for 4 days a few years ago), but I’m not sure if there will be enough time before it gets too hot again. I’ve heard of people leaving in April, so I’m wondering, when do the snowbirds...

    Looking for some old friends from Slab City

    Hey, there! Last winter, my brother, James, and I visited the Slabs for a few days. I was going by the name Erik at the time. We arrived at night and were taken in by a group of hippies who let us stay with them at their camp, which they called The Medicine Post, since they did spiritual...

    Photos Slab City New Years 2020

    Hey all, ended up hitting the slabs for a few days around New Years. Ended up camping on the other side of the canal halfway between siphon 7 & 8. Got stuck in the Tamarisk in the soft wet sand after the torrential downpours they had this season, nothing a shovel and some mesquite beaches...

    No plans lead to Slab City

    left Santa Cruz with no destination in mind, just "South". It had been a cold, wet two weeks in Portland prior, and Cruz hadn't been much hotter; I was ready for socal heat. I had gotten a screaming deal on this baby blue 67 Econoline, the first generation. It's named Cast Iron, after itself...

    Slab City???

    Looks like a wonderland of everything I've ever dreamed of, a paradise. I was wondering exactly how to get there, i.e., what part of california should I take a greyhound to that'd be the closest to slab city?; once there, how do I actually get to slab city?; can anyone just show up and live...

    Who wants to play Dungeons and Dragons in Slab City this winter?

    This isn't directly related to the Jamboree, but I figured this might be worth posting here since I am planning on being in Slab City several weeks before the Jambo, and I know a few others might be doing the same. Anyways, I'm hoping to set up a D&D game for the slabs this winter. I should be...

    'spider tom' at slab city

    Maybe this is an unnecessary post and feel free to delete or move if so. It was really cool to finally get to visit the Slabs and the only person who gave me any problems was this older fairly-cleancut guy calling himself Spider Tom, who first approached me when I was sitting down to smoke a...
