I feel equally passionate about these three things:
1. I want to buy this property so I can be a slumlord from 3,000M away. I'd call every month to yell at the occupant for not paying their FREE rent and also check up on things that I'm not going to fix.
2. This posting will likely generate an interesting discussion.
3. This is one of those topics that when discussed someone gets banned, so there's that to look forward to.

Maybe they are joking, selling this hot business location to a bunch of folks with no $? Are there many businesses there?

I would suggest any buyers pay with home-made money.

Aha; so not a joke, but a person seeking to replicate capitalist, or perhaps neo-feudal, property relations in what is hyped as an autonomous zone. Although this is apparently false according to OP, and private property is alive and well at Slab City and safe from anarchist expropriators:

just because 'everyone else is doing it' doesn't justify selling out.

oh wait, im sorry, you're not selling out, you're 'buying in'.

this has been a disturbing trend in the slabs over the past 5 years or so, people selling land they don't even own. pretty much goes against everything the place was built upon and it's going to be the death of slab city one day.

Ok I had to wait to get off work to reply to this amazing thread.

@Potatos the issue with this, is that if everyone in the slabs started selling spots because of the work they have put into them, it would become nothing more than a glorified trailer park.

Paying money for an item, essentially comes with the intention of owning it. The entire anarchistic idea behind the slabs is that no one owns the land, and therefore it is perfect for people to OCCUPY the land for however long they choose, essentially creating a livable space to better themselves, and hopefully, others. To live outside of capitalist control, to set up their own community, one that does not require money to be apart of, if thou so choose.

The entire idea that you are charging for a 'spot' can attract the winds of government authorities who seek to hunt down property fraud, illegal land transactions, and (God forbid) that the state is actually the owner of the slabs in the first place, and attracting attention to money being made off land their is a stupid fucking idea.

This has been an unsung law in the slabs for a long time. And I've only been there 3 times. So, if I know that......if you would have just said you have a trailer for sale for 200 bucks and the spot can be yours to take over, this would be a completely different issue.

Hopefully this helps you understand the folly of trying to sell land in the slabs.

Sincerely,

Coywolf

Lmfao... I'm dying here and it's because you're all fucking confused. I had to bust out my laptop to type this response because it's gonna require all ten fingers.

Okay.

The original proposition of selling that hut at this time of year is frankly, quite laughable. There are loads of developed camps that people are basically begging others to occupy for the season that they may actually have a fighting chance to survive in. You're not going to sell it to anyone, people have plenty of abandoned camps to pick apart while they wait for you to abandon yours.

If you fill it with trash to spite Slabs for not buying back the salvage you dragged out of it, I will not fucking forget who you are and what you did. Others will take note of it as well.

And to the rest of you having a goober-ass anarchist theory circle jerk or speculating on the fabled "fall of the way of slab life" or some ideology you've formulated, consider this; if it sells, who gives a shit? Some individual handed dollars to another individual for a pile of crap that they could have just waited for. People have done that since forever. People are dumb. It doesn't hurt you, and chances are fair in this climate, both of those entities will fuck off and leave the rest to me... I mean the scavengers who may or may not be me...

Are there places in Slabs that have been sold and are worth the price they were paid? Hell fucking yeah. People aren't selling deeds to land on some bullshit ass government papers, they're bequeathing their physical occupation of a developed camp which can sustain its occupant. They're selling the structure, the location, oftentimes an actual business with amenities and a pre-existing clientele.

Inb4: but you cant do that its not true anarchy and its uughghhhggfhgjgjhk
Anarchy isn't your personal ideological hopes and dreams. It manifests itself in whatever way works for an individual acting autonomously.

If you cleaned it up and you're putting forth physical effort to trash it again, yes that is wrong. Take the supplies for all anyone cares.

Back in minneapolis for a minute, possibly going to nationals? regardless hmu if you're around
Happy (very) belated Father's day to our Oogle Daddy @Matt Derrick !
Now im housed up in a suite for three days. Two bedroom, two different direction facing balconies, pet friendly, and a kitchen. Thank god for CAA coverage. Smartest thing ive done in months. Covers 600$ worth of lodging and food for 72 hours from "incident". That being my truck being inoperable. This doesnt fix the problem but holy fuck do i need this.
Holy fuck I missed being back out here. Tour’s been fucking amazing so far, and getting to see so many old friends and making some new ones has been fantastic.
Off day between Salt Lake City, UT and Reno, NV today. Gonna try to find a campsite for us tonight and I’m excited to sleep under the stars ✨
Holed up in the shop property for the third day. Fried 6 eggs and made some toast for myself and my dog. Something to spice up the dog kibble life. Poured myself the cheap rum and rootbeer drink. Buddy from the insurance/license place brought me some ice :D But there is no sunshine and rainbows. This is survival. This isnt intagram. It was dark and frustrating and cramped, with that side of lonely. Tomorrow we move.
Looking for a few people to join me in an off grid wilderness community. Have hydroelectric and small solar.
Almost died a fiery horrific death when the wiring crossed an shorted in the camper, had to jump in the water to save my dog from drowning when a current was pulling him under roots and branches (one of the most heartwrenching experiences of my life), and i fucked the engine in my truck on the mountain highways. Repairs are going to be expensive and take long. Thats kindof how my summer is going. Beats jail but just barely
Just covered about 500 mi in 12 hrs by train. Two hot as fuck IMs under a full moon. Only one stop was made...an unexpected siding in the exact place i wanted to be.
