so an update for those watching this thread... i've updated the event schedule and put it in the first post of this thread. this should hopefully give folks an idea of what to expect. it's all tentative though and if you have any suggestions or requests just let me know and we'll see what we can do.

Does anyone know whether the Lizard Tree still needs a fire extinguisher? I can't stand the thought of a library burning down.

YEEESSS!


Being in a high fire danger zone, The Lizard Tree Library can *ALWAYS* use more fire extinguishers!

Buy or steal as many as you can, and bring 'em on by; they'll be greatly appreciated.

Just FYI, I ordered all the supplies for the lockpicking workshop today so it should arrive plenty of time before the jamboree. Looking forward to seeing everyone there!

Man I really really want to make it out there this year but the growing season isn't quite finished... hope I can finish up the workload in time so I can get headed that way. Coming from near Oakland so shouldn't take too long to get there if I can get the opportunity :D

If I do make it out there I should have some extra room in the jeep for anyone in this area that needs a ride from the bay area. I'll certainly bring plenty of Cannabis and Kratom :D

Screw it, I'm gonna try to go. If I can get a ride arranged (from the Bay Area) I'll go for sure, otherwise I'll start making my way down there on my own later this week, and it'll just depend on what luck I have getting down there.

Just to let folks know, the jamboree will also be acting as a book release party for The Anarchist's Guide to Travel, the how 2 travel guide I've been working on for the past year. I'll be giving away 20 copies at the jambo with the condition that they are passed on to other would-be travelers when you're done with it :)

There's also going to be a ton of other giveaways, so hope to see you out here!

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
    $85.75 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
    $85.75 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.

I'mma cut to the chase: You don't call me what I consider to be a slur or insult, and I won't call you names.
You say I should love myself and have more self-confidence. You've got it all wrong. I love myself plenty, and I know for a fact that I am capable of doing incredible things, both good and evil.
You say fake it till you make it. I'm too honest for that. Instead I will have faith in myself, and act accordingly.
These new rules for the train riding forum are ridiculous. I've been on here for 5 ish years.
