This is probably the greatest idea I have heard in a long time. I would totally be up for this, but I've only sailed small sailboats and canoes.

yeah, its only about 400 miles away from where I am. So unless I run into issues I have no problem picking you up. Then its another 1000-1100 miles to charleston.
If you have a few bucks for gas that would kick ass.

I actually have been working for a few months at a grocery store and have a pretty nice amount of cash saved up, which would cover gas for a while.

WOW. . .
Ok so sounds like theres a few people commin now. first thing to be aware of is this: the police see you dirty, spanging, scrounging, dumpster diving, with a crosscountry pack on your back or any other homeless/traveler/crusty activities in center city (with the hotels and shit) in the suburbs over the bridges from the center city - pritty much any where except out in the middle of the woods or the ghetto where you will get killed for wearing gang colors Supposedly they will empty your bag, take your name, pixure, confiscate any lethal/deadly weapon cite you for possession of such, - if you are driving a road vehicle no telling what they will do. all this foxtailV tells me but i am unsure of the severaty of the polive distain for "US" but when im light trampin (collecting materials, water, food,. - whatever I keep moving and just try to blend in.
If im spanging I keep moving and never let buisness owners and employees get wind of my existance
the time to blow this city up will come but its not now, it is a college town, a charter fishing town, and most of all a tourist town - with out all the tourists commin here this place would look like detroit and cops would be gettin killed left and right
my biggest worry right now is getting a crew boat or three for crew to go back and forth from the island to nabouring islands . . .
and if the DNR or sherrif evicts us i have a backup island . . ..
thanks for those links Spoon good eye bro. be careful out there the midwest is hell

Another alternative is to download the free NOAA online charts onto a laptop, and then patch any GPS into it. It's more accurate and up-to-date data than any chart plotter, and mostly free.

Oh yes David, I have the repository for the NOAA charts in my favorites. Have the NC, SC, GA, FL, AL, MS and LA charts all downloaded and the seaclear 2 software to view them (just like widderstands north American rail road map 3)
And Stope your device is very welcome!
As of now I trust all my people with my life and devices to all who come to this mecca please be trustworthy and trusting.
if shit starts disappearing people will disappear with them and this vision will never grow fins and float.
Oh and by the way those coming beware this island is a bitch in these heavy rains. there is palmetto bugs, roaches, little crabs, banana spiders, fire ants little geckos and froggies. none of these creatures will bother you much as long as your not afraid to find them sharing your bed or food, this is why we sleep atop these 8 foot high cement risers that support the highway pillions what I can the "wet camp" is good for setting up your hammock if you have such or tent and tarp. but foxtailV says that the pillbugs eat the bottom of your tent after time and in January all the green leaves will fall and the whole island will be open for outsiders scrutiny but if we have too many people to colonize the pillions we can find ways to properly camouflage a sizable encampment I the wetcamp, only BIG problem is a storm surge of 6 feet WILL flood out the entire island, but were safer on foxtail island than for say folly island, wich is far far away from food and big commerce and right up against the ocean
tl;dr bring tents, tarps, cooking devices whatever! were roughing it until we can get enough supplies to build a massive platform to keep us off the ground!

@ NeoMaxxAKI kayaks and canoes! outside of Charleston county. I.e., you see a kayak or canoe that you can pirate and paddle down some waterway to us it is much welcome! we just can't pirate any watercraft within this county if shit like that starts coming up missing from peoples personal docks or marina docks were elevating the heat on our future endeavors. Spoon has found that such "human powered craft" don't need to be registered so we can fake the funk if the DNR of the water dogs ask too many questions we can claim we paddled it in from elsewhere legitimately. but its not too likley you'll find such, but if you do. . .

hey we got a dingy! ju$t bought it and we are water-born!

Awesome.

I spent almost all my money on trying to fix a car that isn't going to make it to SC. So, I sold my Glock and bought a Greyhound ticket. I'll be in Charleston around 3:30 on Sunday. Looks like it's going to be about 7-8 miles from the Greyhound station to the island.

I'll personally come and meet you at the dog pen and show you there.
Its Foxtails island but my show - to put it bluntly. Just woke up on the wrong side of the trax this morning. missed last bus back from nor-char, got drunk, tried to hop junk, squatted birdshit house, woke up pissing on my self, hopped sided junker, sided all morning 1/2 mile down steel, 3 hours gone by with no cig from lost lighter in birdshit house, gas stations no maches, kicked out of Marriott Continental breakfast dining room B-4 I could eat.
On the mutherfucking warpath with the next fucking yuppie that gets in my way - I'll mow him down!

EDIT: just re-read this. its all true, but fucking ridiculous. Goddamn I was out of it earlier!

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 of $50.00
    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
    $0.00 of $75.00
    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 this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $0.00 of $100.00
    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
    $0.00 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.
