If I remember correctly, I believe the camp spot was some kind of county run public spot. There was 5+ camp sites with plenty of room for multiple bike campers to set up on. First come first serve free location with I believe a 5 day limit. I don't see it being an issue if 20 bikers showed up, we would just have to share camp sites.

I don't think I for one would be able to meet up monthly, as I'm constantly on the move looking for work. When I have enough money to float for awhile, I aimlessly travel. I'm pretty booked working this current summer, which the job I'm working now will land me in Florida for the winter.

If we have the interest in the community we could start planning for next summer.

Also, @Dunedrifter, can I recommend to you that if you are on the move bike touring and want to meet similar travelers, post a thread in the meet up or bike touring section for when and where you will be somewhere and for how long. Never know who is close unless you ask! Safe travels and fly low!
I wouldn’t be able to meet up monthly either, I was just saying that meet-ups could occur monthly (or randomly) at different locations so they wouldn’t be confined to one place, once a year.

I was thinking of planning one for next summer too, so anyone whose interested can PM me (us), and we can start working out the details on the side. @Koala, @Crazy Hobo Johnny, @Mrcharwe, @Banjo and anyone else.

Thanks for the reminder about STP’s meet up section; I forgot about that. I’m planning to quit my job in October and embark on a yearlong journey circumnavigating the US and Canada.

Planning for next summer sounds reasonably achievable. If you're going to be free in October, and you're already in Cali, I highly recommend attending the Jambo in November. Arrive to slabs early and make a couple friends and you should be able to leave your bike somewhere safe. Or you could get a storage unit for a month in Niland. Should only cost $40-50 bucks.

I unfortunately will not be attending Jambo this year, I was planning on it and want to, but I have changed my summer job plans. I was in Michigan working a campground/bar/grill job, but had to ditch it due to the shitty people running it. Now after a quick 500 mile bike tour I am on board a traveling carnival until December, which will land me in Florida. I plan to hit the slabs in December for the remainder of the winter, if all goes as planned.

I would like to help, if can. And, for something with biking involved, I must suggest Minnesota or Oregon. I'm open to online video chat meet ups on Skype, Duo, or Facebook.
I was shooting for somewhere more centrally located to appeal to more people, even though I’m on the west coast. But I’m open to other ideas.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$45.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $45.00 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
    $45.00 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
    $45.00 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
    $45.00 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.

Damn sore riding my bicycle over 60 some miles Sunday! Laid in my tent all day Monday resting! Bike touring at its best. Gotta love it!
Asheville, looking to hang out? Peace
Made it to chicago, had a blast. Got a bike a new bike at the squat i stayed at. So far ive been at the wsp hopout for 12 hours and not a single wbd has shown up.
Yeah remember when I said I'm going off grid for a while? Didn't last long, fucked my back up real bad and apparently I also have an enlarged heart, pretty cool. More love to give maybe? So they admitted me. I'll be on hospital grid for at least a day. Low battery and no charger though, so I'mma leave y'all with a cliffhanger probably. Will try to update before heading back out to the sticks.
100% off-grid for roughly 2 weeks? I'll try to pop in here and there if I get any trips to town. Safe travels y'all. And even if you're just sittin around talkin bout "yeah gonna hit the road in about 6 months maybe" y'all be safe doin that too alright. Armchairs be dangerous yo!

So we have a gallery section that you might consider looking at to post pictures to. It might be more convenient for other users if the newest profile posts wernt all imgur photos from you.
