Hey, there! Last winter, my brother, James, and I visited the Slabs for a few days. I was going by the name Erik at the time.

We arrived at night and were taken in by a group of hippies who let us stay with them at their camp, which they called The Medicine Post, since they did spiritual healing there. The camp was just near the entrance, because they wanted to stay away from the tweakers. It was close to the big sign that gave directions to different landmarks (The Range, The Library, East Jesus, etc.) and close to a different camp called Camp Loyal.

The people at The Medicine Post were Sun Wolf, a Canadian named Kevin (whom we also called Montreal), a couple named Raven Wolf and Moonsung, Scorpion (who had an adorable puppy named Sheila), Star Cat (who also had a dog), and Cliff. When my brother and I left, Raven Wolf told us that they would be there again this winter. I've been considering visiting Slab City again, and maybe even staying there for an extended time. I really wish I had exchanged phone numbers with some of them, so I could have kept in contact. I'm wondering if anyone knows if any of these people went back to the Slabs, and if they're there currently.

Thanx in advance for any help/info!

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
$100.00
Goal
$100.00

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
    $100.00 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.

Be safe out there, perhaps we'll meet again when times are better.
I hope that y'all are good and safe wherever you may happen to be. Take care of yourselves, may the wind always be at your back <3

So, here's something great! After finally saying NO to eating carbs and sugar this morning (since that's mostly all there is to eat at home) and instead bought and ate vegetables, I actually don't have cravings anymore!

All I've eaten today is two sweet potatoes and some broccoli, and I don't have any food cravings, and I'm not lethargic!
