That guy babbles a lot but never lays out any consistent story. He doesn't provide any evidence (even anecdotal) of being "hunted." He basically says there were some crusty kids standing around him, he freaked out and ran through a bunch of squatter turf in the dark, and expected some result other than squatters taking offense to his shit in their yard. He summed that all up by calling 911 after running around aimlessly all night and making an ass of himself. He sounds totally clueless.

The slabs have a lot of mixed people, for sure, and crime does happen here. But it's very much a common sense place. I've never felt at all threatened in the slabs.

Set and setting... so much more important than the substance.

Writing style does pull you into the mindset though.

that place is 10 kinds of wack but there is a lot of gossip and people like to lie since the most entertaining thing about the place is campfires and the shenanigans of meth addicts.

Dude that guy is a fucking nut sounds like. Literally did not think for a second to TALK to these kids, drew his knife (!?) unprovoked, "employs the barrel roll" into coachella canal, and then wonders why the cop that picks him up thinks he's a methhead. Meanwhile in the comments, his ex wife comes through to tell him off because he claimed he was too broke to pay child support yet he's taking pricey trips into the desert to tweak out. And he moved to NH. Sounds like some kind of paranoid libertarian fuckboy.

"There is a natural hot spring where these fuckers bathe in each others filthy body stew. "

No wonder this guy wasn't very popular out there, he sounds like a fucking asshole.

Edited to add:
"She is a Slab City 10 or a real world 6.5"

Uhhh.... Fuck you, buddy.

I think he just deserved every bit of bad tripping he received. He sounds like a douchebag.

I think the whole story was true to the extent of his subjective experience. But who would spend any time chasing down a guy like this?

think the correct term is 'culture clash' - straight dude goes to a squat and can't fuckin' handle it, happens a lot ! what I can't work out is what was the catalyst to make him run for his life - NOTHING happened - fuckin' pussy !

damn right @creature - in fact the whole sorry piece is a gradual tell about the guys outlook on the world and the people in it.... well travelled / highly socialised people often become pretty astute judges of character and quickly ! so what I glean is your man is a typical mainstream guy with that usual predictable view of the world - because he got more money / nicer car / smells better and 'professional' tattoos then he feels superior to 'losers' like dem Slabbers... and like most self absorbed straights he thinks that he's the centre of the universe, everything's about him.... he thinks they MUST wanna rob him / hurt him - they probably wish he'd just FUCK OFF and stop stinking the place out with cologne !
I'm sure the Slabs is gonna blow the mind of the averageJoe - shame it didn't get blown in a good way, if you know what I mean - I'm talking about the moment when you say goodbye to the old life cos you found something better ! I bet there's been plenty of epiphanies at Slab City, must be one of the biggest squats on the planet - sadly many of these straight muthafuckers is beyond redemption.....
