Anyone have any idea the law on living on the land, specifically refering to national forest.
General rule of thumb for areas that allow dispersed camping is 14 days in one spot. It varies, but that's pretty standard. Look up dispersed camping rules for specific area you plan to be in, and it will tell you all the stuff you're not supposed to do.

Dude, there are so many threads on this. Either look through the content on my profile, or search "public land" in the search bar. I would quote some threads but I am kinda up to some other stuff ATM.

I did an entire write up on the laws living on public land, I just cant find it at the moment.

Highlights:

-you can stay up to 14 days on any piece of public land (BLM, Forest Service, Fish and Game...) unless otherwise specified (Not always posted)

-After 14 days you usually should move at least a mile to another spot to satisfy said local Ranger.

-if you are far enough out, sometimes this rule is flexible.

-Always do research on an area, and read local regulations

-Clean the FUCK up after yourself. Im sick of seeing assholes leaves behind piles of trash after their "off-the-grid" spot is done with

-State land rules vary

-The forest service has become much more avid about "confiscating" personal property at camps that have been there for a while. Watch out for this. If a wildfire comes through, they will block off the area and throw away your shit. Seen in many times in Oregon.

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 his 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.

I hosted Lilith/@slaapkaamers for 3 nights in Nov 19.
She was an exemplary guest. Good w both conversing and alone time. Trustworthy, didnt steal anything and I felt very comfortable leaving her alone at my place. She didnt stink and not a junky.
Lilith is a legit traveller, she's a sweet, artistic chick w lots of good and interesting ideas to chat about. A pleasure to host. If she's in your neck of the woods you should help her out. 😉
I have a pretty good new squat in sfe but im leaving soon if anyone wants the keys lmk.
