Anyone know of any squats on the big island? Im headed there in a couple of weeks and might need a squat if things fall out. If anyone here has been in hawaii Id love to hear from you.

Never been there, but it seems like I've heard something about homeless people getting money from the government there. That was like 10 yrs ago though, so I don't know if its still a thing or was just a rumor.
Anyway, something to look into.

might not be the best time for a mainland haole to try and find a squat seeing as how the erupting volcano has displaced a lot of people from their homes recently. just buy a cheap tent at walmart and sleep on the beach or in the woods. just pack up your stuff each day with you, cause there's a lot of meth use on the islands and it might get ripped off if you leave it there unattended.

also, i'd be real respectful of any areas you find that have KAPU signs. (it's like the no tresspassing sign of the islands) because the locals won't take kindly at all if they find you disregarding those

A lot of vacant land near Kurtistown - I met tent-dwellers, van-tramps, meth-heads, hitch-hikers & various other nomads - I don't know what it's like now with the volcano and all

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
    $200.00 of $200.00 - reached!
    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.
