Hey all, ended up hitting the slabs for a few days around New Years.

Ended up camping on the other side of the canal halfway between siphon 7 & 8. Got stuck in the Tamarisk in the soft wet sand after the torrential downpours they had this season, nothing a shovel and some mesquite beaches couldn't fix!

Went to an awesome show at The Range and counted down the New Year, danced like a moron in the front row with my travel partner!

Finally checked out Katamari bar, and went down to chill at the library for a bit. Also see all the touristy shit I've never done, like hit Salvation Mtn., Carhenge, the Tanks, and Flamingo Camp.

Saw an EMS helicopter land on the siphon and fly someone out late in the morning while tripping on some L, crazy thing to watch!

Hit the Quartzsite Gem Show on the way out and got myself some fancy rocks!

Thanks to @Jerrell @VikingAdventurer and others that aided in this being an amazing trip!

Thanks man! It will probably be a while, as this job has me tied down harder than a detainee in Guantanemo.

I'm trying to get another seasonal type job so I can travel again. REALLY hard to do what I want to do and hold down my career at the same time. I'll definitely be updating if anything changes!

@Coywolf Really enjoyed hanging with you two! Looking forward to crossing paths again down the road!

HELLZ YA! That was a good time. We will definitely cross paths again soon. I'll probably be back in the slabs in a while. Did you end up going to Anza Borrego?

Thank you for sharing the photos!!! Someday, we'll have to meet and drink some of that whiskey!!!!

Dude, High West is probably some of the best whiskey I've ever had. If we meet up sometime I'll definitely get a bottle!

@Matt Derrick Half of those pics are with an iPhone 9, and the other half with a Galaxy S9. These new phones are kicking serious ass with the image quality.

I'm also about to buy a new GoPro and start getting my channel back up to speed. More videos about Vandwelling, my build, and the adventures I go on (fucking work, or itd be trains)

Fucking amazing pics, Coywolf! I hope to make it down there to Slab City some time soon. Maybe this summer, a west-coast roadtrip and rail-hop from Vancouver down to Mexico seems about right.

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.

    $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
    $90.00 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
    $90.00 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.
