I've watched a signifigant amount of videos about Slab City (made by people who live there), and read articles but very few have been helpful with the information I am looking for. From what I have seen, it looks like a pretty cool community where you can practice anarchist politics with minimal hindrance from or involvement with the state. So, naturally, I am interested in visiting and possibly living there for a period of time.

However, it would help a lot if someone with experience would give me some pointers.

My first question would be, where do you set up? Is acceptible to pull your car up to most empty spaces, notofy the neighbors, and set up shop?
Secondly, can you work for food and/or money? Are there volunteer oppertunities as well (I would love help anyone I can)?
Lastly, how was/is your experience with people there? Are there certain areas/people to avoid?

I apologize if these questions are dumb, I just haven't seen them answered yet. Feel free to post your experience there, whether or not it has to do with the questions.

Best way to learn is go find out - I mean, I imagine it's unique for each individual, what they have to offer, what they hope to gain, that kind of thing. What do I need to know in order to thrive? is a fair question, but it depends entirely on what you bring to the party. In life. AND Slab City (I believe - never having been...)

did you try using the search? there's literally 100 threads about this stuff.
No, I haven't tried that sorry man. I'll delete this post, sorry for cluttering.

Edit:nvm, I can't delete but feel free to if you think it is too redundant. Thanks for the advice, I am a dumbass at times
