hey folks, im trying to plan my flight and see if i can get a ride from someone from either LA or SD to the slabs for the event (and back). im trying to figure that out as soon as i can so i can buy plane tickets and request time off work...
Hey mate,
Could do LA to Slabs, not 100% sure I could get you back to LA but a ride to is doable.
much appreciated, but i worked out a plane ticket to San Diego, and a greyhound from there to El Centro, so I'm good. i'd be great to see you out there though!

Revised plans for me.

Can only offer rides from LA (and surrounds) to Slabs. Can also do Bay Area to LA but I'm spending a couple days with mates in LA before heading to Slabs. Room for one, maybe two.

"Dubuque? That's a suburb of Platteville." I overheard that at a fuel stop and chuckled.

I am familiar with driving through Platteville, I mean Dubuque. I cross the Mississippi on the south side via Illinois Hwy. 35, left turn on 151 down to Iowa Hwy. 1. Zip down to Iowa City and Interstate 80. I dislike I-80. It is effecient but crowded.

I, of course, was kidding when I said the trip took 45 minutes or so. I don't have a Lear Jet or the like.

I'm not a weirdo in a bad sense. I'm a pleasant weirdo.
When are you heading out of MKE?

Leo Skinner:

Things have changed, I don't know if I'll be headed to the Slabs or not. I'm currently stuck in Grand Island NE. A tractor-trailer on I-80 lost a steel rod off his truck at 75 mph while I was passing him at 80 mph. The rod went through my windshield and by mere inches missed stabbing me in the heart. It embedded itself in the dashboard and screwed up some electric and duct work. I'm going to be anchored here for at least a week and maybe my van will be have to be junked.

I'll post pictures when they are available.

Sorry, hope you have better luck elsewhere.

I'll get in first ay

Planning on driving from just north of Nelson, BC in late October...as long as my car holds up and I have some emergency cash behind me. Don't mind whether I take the PCH and go via the Bay Area and Los Angeles or go inland through NV/ID.

So, yeah, hit me up if you'r anywhere between the West Kootenays and Slabs!

Help with gas money appreciated/probs needed!

I'm leaving from the Seattle area and have pitch on gas. I'm riding alone. My schedule is pretty open as far as specific pick up days. Let me know. Are you coming back up the same way, or traveling on to a new location?

I'm out in Central Texas with storms on both sides. Waiting for flooding to finish before going to NM, AZ and Slabs. Hit me up.

So I’m in Ohio pretty close to dayton. I’d need a ride there but I’m not really sure where I’m going after. I can pitch in on gas and food. It’ll just be me and a pack

I will be leaving from PDX and going back afterwards. Still a lot of time for plans to change, but I'm down to get you there and back. Got room for one...or maybe another 1 or 2 in an enclosed canopy.
What's up, It's Stix, we met at the Jambo and rode back to Oakland together 2 years ago. Do you still have space for another rider? I got pitch on gas and can meet you in Portland whenever.

I REALLY REALLY need a ride to the gathering, I feel like it will be life changing for me and my daughter, shit my whole family. She is 14 and doesn't know she is an indigo child and that I am a lightworker. I really want to connect with likeminded people. I have been trying to get to the gathering since mid June. PLEASE someone take us there...not sure we can stay for the whole time....we don't even have a tent....just our clothes....I mean, we have our rental here in Nahunta but I am sure she would agree if we found our new family we would walk away from whatever...Peace, Love and Happiness....I hope I (we) find it soon.

Thank
Deb and Mags

QUOTE="EphemeralStick, post: 255761, member: 2195"]Heya folks! This here is the official 2018 Rideshare Thread! If you are seeking a ride to this year's Jamboree please post your location and when you'll be looking to leave on here! If you have a vehicle and wanna pick up some folks on your way down this thread is the place where you want to post your route!

Happy trails everyone! Hope to see you there!

Hey just a heads up this isn't anything even CLOSE to a rainbow gathering. There is a LOT of drinking. It's a lot of fun, but maybe not the best place for a 14 year old girl or a family excursion.

Monthly Goals

  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
    $70.75 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
    $70.75 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
    $70.75 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.
