Hey folks, so it's time to start thinking about this year's jamboree and what we'd all like to see happen this year.

Propose ideas, etc, and let's get the ball rolling on organizing this event!
 
We sell all kinds of other stuff in our Etsy store!

we'll definitely need volunteers to help setup/tear down anything we end up doing!

in previous years we had people play music, had an open bar, and the story telling night went really well, so i think we should include those things :)

also probably the obligatory exploring the slabs, going to the hotsprings, maybe a we could mob the slab city golf course?

Ha! There's a golf course. Just looked at the video. Thats rad. Im down. The last time I played was 2 years ago at a tournament, in a retirement community . Also the last time I shroomed. HILARIOUS!

Count me in for volunteering. I'll do whatever I can to be there to help.

Yoooo, i cannot fucking wait!! I convinced a good friend to set her wedding for November so I could go to both that and jambo LOL
@Koala and I want to volunteer for set up!
If there are other travelers who like to do stand up, an open mic could be fun

I'll be there early to set up shop and get the jambo running. Glad youre thinking about doing it later. 2 years ago was ridiculously hot

Im not going to be able to come. But im curious. If i sent @Matt Derrick 10-20 large jars of vegemite and a 6 pack or two of assorted aussie beer. Could you guys have a vegemite eating contest? The person who finishes their jar of vegemite first gets the 6 pack of beer? Of course it would have to be filmed so id be able to see it haha

I think this is entirely doable and I am all about it.

Id cover all the costs of the vegemite, beer and the shipping costs. But for me to actually get there isnt going to happen sadly.

As usual, were going to need folks to help haul out trash, keep the kitchen tidy and pick up in general. Everyone can help with keeping watch over the space and looking out for each other in the desert heat.

Can you change it to 10 to 20 six packs of beer and 6 jars of vegemite @Sole Survivor? 6 jars would be PLENTY!! Even for a contest. Coopers Sparkling Ale would be a crowd favorite I reckon.

And yes it's like marmite. Pretty much identical.

Exactly how rich do you think i am??? Back 3 years ago and on your first trip to australia i had australia's most beat up and dilapidated suburu. If you remember the heater core went when leaving the pub. (That was that funny smell we were smelling) and things gradually got worse... Yes i now own a late model toyota hilux ute. And it is reliable as fuck. Turn key and go. And service it occasionly BUT its only a poverty pack trim level, 2wd, thirsty petrol engined ute. No 4x4, mid level or top of the range trim pack, or fuel efficient turbo diesel engine. (All of that would have been another 10-20 grand more) And its under finance as well. Which means i gotta make payments. Dont be greedy.

With being said i can do a six pack of coopers if you think that would be well received. Im not much of a beer drinker. I was originaly thinking 6 different cans of aussie beers, like: VB, XXXX gold, Tooheys extra dry, Carlton Dry etc. Failing that a bottle of bunderberg rum.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $35.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $35.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $35.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $35.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

My Anarchist's Guide to Travel came in today, six days early! I know it's not anything major, but I feel like I'm finally making progress towards getting myself out and traveling.

Now I just have to make sure I don't forget about my book review (which I wrote in my spare time) because I was too busy plowing through this. 😬

EDIT: It also came with a message from Matt and an awesome StP sticker that I didn't notice at first! Thank you!!
