I was thinking 10 or 20 jars of vegemite would be enough. That way thered be plenty available for those who'd like to enter the vegemite eating contest. And a few spare. One jar would be donated to the slab city library so people could try some vegemite on toast or have a vegemite sandwich during the jamboree. Any remaining jars could be auctioned off to anybody who finds they like it (vegemite keeps really well and would suit traveling) with the proceeds going to STP.
 
We sell all kinds of other stuff in our Etsy store!

my sudden lack of obligation to work makes me think I might be able to make it this year guys! I’m going to be spending my free time and extra money on getting my bus travel ready I feel like I could accommodate carrying supplies in and trash out . Not making any promises but I’m definitely going to try this year, ima try hard. Really super want to meet a lot of you !

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.
If i make it i will be there for tear down/clean up but not so much set up stuff. Like all my camping type excursions i believe in the philosophy of leaving a site cleaner than you found it (minus fucked up holes that someones gonna pay to demolish anyway). Im guessing burn what you can, recycle what you can hopefully?

Still sore I couldn't make the last one, but without a doubt this year.
Had a blast throwing down wherever needed. Made some amazing connections. I'm planning on spending at least a week, which could include setup and breakdown.
I know you're off to other things now, @Cornelius Vango, but I hope you'll be there. Will never forget the entire building rumbling when you had to hit the punching bag.

Probably needs to be said before peeps show up, the library is fine for camping at during the jambo usually, but anyone who intends to stay longer than party days needs to talk to the folks running the library about camping situations. We’ve had problems with people trying to stay longer than they’re welcome thinking it’s an ongoing party. So just make sure to talk to @VikingAdventurer or @Cornelius Vango if you might want to stick around.

What about arriving early? If I have aa destination I always like to leave early because shit happens and I get sidetracked and all that. Could always stay in the city or camp around if anything. Just never been to the slabs.

Last year we started camping at the library for the jambo i think between 3-5 days before the jambo. When camping begins is up to @VikingAdventurer or @Cornelius Vango

I am 100% down to perform some music, mine of which is genre-less but if I have to use my words kinda more of the grunge/stoner rock/old school emo vibe. It would also be cool to do a whole open jam session/open mic situation and I would totally b down to help host/organize.

So this will be my first time going to the jamboree and was wondering if it costs anything to attend. And my bad if this isn't the right place for this post (this site doesnt work well on my phone) but I'd be more than happy to put in some volunteer work and I'd be stoked if i could play some of my campfire punkrock songs for everyone.

It doesn't cost anything to attend, although if you want to bring some party supplies to share like beverages or food or whatever else you think might be fun to bring, that's always good etiquette.

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    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
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    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
    $90.75 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
    $90.75 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.

You say I should love myself and have more self-confidence. You've got it all wrong. I love myself plenty, and I know for a fact that I am capable of doing incredible things, both good and evil.
You say fake it till you make it. I'm too honest for that. Instead I will have faith in myself, and act accordingly.
These new rules for the train riding forum are ridiculous. I've been on here for 5 ish years.

I read your story last month about working in Alaska. I got a job in Naknek this summer. Definitely can get how it felt like jail. I fear it's really going to feel that way with this virus. We can't go into town. I'm not very happy about that since it will limit my exploring. Yet I really need the opportunity right now. Anymore advice is much appreciated.
