So, just to let folks know, despite the last minute location change, we still had around 16 people show up at "the end of the world" so it was a decent turn out.

I met some cool people for the first time, and others from previous jambos, and despite the cold I think folks had a pretty good time.

I'm starting this thread as a place for folks to share any photos or stories of the event. I'm especially interested in seeing pictures from the abandoned naval Base, as I was too sick to go (still recovering from bronchitis).

Anyways, I'm really excited for the 2020 jamboree which is going to be our first summer Jambo on an island! Details will be coming soon in a new thread :)

Damn, seconding what @Crazy Hobo Johnny said. I did at least get out and ride a bit while the jambo easgoing on, so I was there in spirit, lol.

Is that @croc in that first picture?

Also, an island?!! I need details. I will be there next year. Also, anyone know if there are any other spots where most of yall hang out alot other than the slabs and NOLA when the jambo is not going on? Preferably in the western US. I'm looking to get out and travel a bit this summer. Maybe LA is in order....

Had a great time hanging with everyone! The impromptu jambo was definitely a success. Shout out to my post jambo bum crew! You know who you are! Made lots of new friends, can't wait to see you all again. Thanks to everyone who made this possible!

Probably the best last minute surprise I've experienced in a long time. Thank you again @Matt Derrick for coming to get me, I appreciate it greatly.
I have nothing but excellent things to say about every single person I meet over that weekend. You all were a privilege to hang out with and I hope we meet again!
It was equally awesome to see @EphemeralStick and Nathan again and of course @Matt Derrick.
Thank you all for making this one of the best jamborees!

I didn't take many pictures but here's what I got.

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
    $75.75 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
    $75.75 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 hate my fucking back. A combination of bank bullshit and now a strained or sprained back had kept me held up in Pennsylvania. Have a place to stay, but I'm pissed at life trying to keep me off the road!

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.

I read your story last month about working in Alaska. I got a job in Naknek this summer. Definitely can get how it felt like jail. I fear it's really going to feel that way with this virus. We can't go into town. I'm not very happy about that since it will limit my exploring. Yet I really need the opportunity right now. Anymore advice is much appreciated.
Anyone been to Thailand or know anything about Thailand? Going in September and have absolutely no plans yet, open to suggestions!
