the slabs will not welcome ass holes, thieves, or pan handlers. and if you come to my house asking for a hand out, i will be an ass hole and might shoot at you. cops here suck, and the people who live here are not about to give you a hand out. sorry i am on a rant, but it seems like there are a lot of kids on there way to slab city with no clue. do not come here. inless you can provide for your self, your own food, water, and shelter. this is not a rainbow gathering, you cannot walk up to some ones camp fire at not and ask for a beer or some weed, they will shoot at you or call the cops. and the cops here are nazis, a cop by the name of green shot a kids dog in the face, the dog lived, the bullet went through the lip tongue and bottom of the soft spot of the jaw. there is no real close place to spange. the whole county is poor farmers who will not support your booze habit. you are not welcome to come to my place inless you have been invited. slab city is not some anarchist free for all.

I thought you said that Slabs was paid for by donations or something. Its privately funded, so that means you can tell people to piss off
no man, i run a small place IN slab city called East Jesus, that is ran on donations.

As far as I know, the slabs "is paid for" by the California teachers union. That is to say "owned". Correct me if I am wrong here if someone knows better, but the slabs "history" as I know it:
The salton sea formed, tons of people started to build resorts, property values skyrocketed, the state of CA gave an old military base to the California teachers union, instead of money that they owed. Turns out Salton sea has no inlet or outlet, stagnates, resorts go under, property value crashes, slab city isnt worth 2 shits to the CA teachers. A bunch of outlaws/travelers/veterans move in and squat the place.
I agree though Kat, people should not go to the slabs any more than any other place out in the desert, if they think its going to be easy living. The Church on the slabs used to give out food once a month. Its warm, and rarely rains, so sleeping outside is fine while you are building a shelter. Food in Niland is pretty cheap. Water is free from the hose behind the market (you gotta haul it 3 miles home though). Due to the farmers around, there is a hell of a lot of work (the population might be poor farmers, but they are mostly working on farms of huge corporations). You can easily find lettuce harvest jobs in the winter, try looking in Calipatria. Other than that you can make decent money harvesting ironwood, or picking dates, if you know the right people. Drinks at the oasis club are cheap, after you pay your yearly dues.
Slab City is an amazing place, full of opportunity, but its a very real place, where you arent gonna get away long with fucking around. If you are honest, hard working, motivated, and focused, you will love the place, and it will love you back. If you are looking for a handout, better head back to the city.

oh yeah, on the cheap side: A bus from Niland to Calexico (ends right at the border) is one dollar (or it was last time I was there).
For supplies, it might be a pain in the ass, but 2 bucks round trip, and a bit of walking, will get you mexican prices, well worth it.

People that appreciate what kat is doing and the place he is caring for often donate to help support it. and use their relatively clean and secure pre made camp sites that exist on it. i have been out here for like 6 weeks and have been working hard to improve the quality of life that we are enjoying here. Thru the hard work of many individuals that reside here at kats place we have a great many of the real world luxuries. it takes a group of individuals to keep it clean and running smoothly when you live this close to nature and in this place nature and men are both often times your enemy

Ks is home & damn tornados bring me back everytime
Kat- why do people pay to camp at your place when they can just go off and camp for free a ways away? Or has anyone 5$/nite yet?
people dont pay to stay here. what we do at east jesus has nothing to do with the slabs. we are in slab city but not a part of it, the camp we live in east jesus was built by a friend of kats and we are looking over it so scrapers and tweakers dont tear it down. friends of charlies host camping trips here because its so bad ass and we take donations.

dont confuse our camp with the rest of the slabs.

to go more in depth, we allow people to come and camp here for a few days at a time for a 5.00 dollor or more donation. if you can't come off 5 bucks we will give you a 50 gal grabage and then you can go for a walk and fill that bag with native slab city trash and take it with you when you leave. we also have some internet available, if i like you and not downloading a torrent file, full kitchen, awesome bathrooms, and east jesus is one of the safest places in slab city, cuz we shoot at people creepy around the camp at night and have a lot of really big dogs, and every one out here knows about both of those reasons why not to come out here unannounced at night. but for the most part we are petty full at the moment at east jesus, inless you happen to have an awesome skill that we just can't pass up on.
i am having a small get together on my birthday, nice fire, some booze and good friends, so if your around thats a good time to check us out.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $25.00 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
    $25.00 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
    $25.00 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
    $25.00 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.
