Hey, folks. I'm sure many of you are already acquainted with my current long-term project which is Slab City Library. The popular winter season is coming to an end, and the temperatures will begin to rise until they top out at as high as 130F. I have spent the better part of the last four years of my life (an eternity for nomads) building this space up into what it is now, with no intention of abandoning it any time soon.

I'm seeking people who wish to assist with this project. I am not looking to take care of anyone or provide living space to anyone who can't provide for their own basic needs as well as help out with daily tasks and chores. There is little comfort to be had here during the summer, but the comforts that exist are better than what many others survive with in this harsh climate.

Obviously, there is much to be considered and I won't take just anybody. I've been here long enough to know what I'm looking for, but if you ever thought you might be able to hack it in Slabs, this may be what you've been waiting for. I am willing to teach my techniques for off-grid desert survival.

If this is something you would seriously consider, I'd advise contacting me sooner than later as the season is changing and acclimatization is key! Again, I'm not looking for just anybody, so don't expect to just show up at my door with a pack.

Yeah, dude. What's your deal? Permanent Slab City resident (for the most part)?
Only the strong survive. But, like you said: ACCLIMATION is the word.
I feel like WATER is the be-all / end-all to colonization.
I've seen 26 gallon portable cisterns. Military surplus, for sale, online They look like giant bladders, with a hose attachment. I thought that would be a vital piece of equipment for your endeavors. [That's a lot of weight though.)
Wondering what the current water situation is in the desert there...
Stay hydrated.

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
$150.00
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
    $150.00 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.
