I passed through a few years back just to spend one night, but it seemed like a really cool place to hang out for a summer. Does anyone have more info about the place?
For those who don't know, Sardinia has the best beaches anywhere in Europe and since the '60s or '70s one beach in the far north has been occupied by dreamers and free thinkers. There are about a dozen caves nearby where people sleep. That's all I know.
I didn't speak any French or Italian (or Sardinian) when I was there so I couldn't communicate at all, but as soon as I showed up I was given a glass of wine, a bowl of hobo soup, and after dinner I was given a cave all to myself. I was there in late July and it wasn't very lively so I'm not even sure people stick around over the winter. The average age was probably 40, and there weren't more than a dozen people there. I have no idea what daily life is like. However one guy who spoke a few words of English told me "Come August. More people. Naked girls. We bake pizza."

I'll see if I can dig up any photos I took.

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
    $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
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    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
    $110.00 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.

We are moving the jamboree to New Orleans this year due to some personal disagreements between myself and the lead organizer of the slab city library. Details can be found on the Jambo information thread.
