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.

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

Depends on how early among other things, but you're free to show up and we can feel it out.

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.

I second this. I'm actually working on having plenty of space available for people to camp this year.

No. But you can set up in a nearby bush or designated campsite.

@Shaka , Don't worry, we'll have plenty of great campsites for the Jambo. One of the projects I've been working on over the summer here is to get those campsites ready.

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.

Goocho only follows me! Lol.
The canaries are a catastrophic area since yesterday, global warming ain't gonna pass tommorow, i'm scared of the fucking ocean in general, let alone fucking tsunamis and shit, and even if i'd stay off the beaches, the rains are so heavy that the trip seems pointless, someone kick me while i'm down
Fuck this shit, 3 months of preparing for a trip to the Canaries just went down the drain, my guitaritst bailed out of the idea to start a job and a "steady life", my bestie is getting all weird and i don't think she wants to go.
i was already preparing for going solo when suddenly life (fucking Shell and coal miners!!!) was all like "nooo of course you don't want to go"
going crazy..
i dont get people. i am heartbroken, society disappointed and road sick for the last few months.. i need help..
Happy 40th birthday, jonestown massacre.
