Looks like a wonderland of everything I've ever dreamed of, a paradise. I was wondering exactly how to get there, i.e., what part of california should I take a greyhound to that'd be the closest to slab city?; once there, how do I actually get to slab city?; can anyone just show up and live there or is there a vetting process of some sort? Anything else I should know?

Please use the search bar, as we have answered these questions many, many, times before on the forum.


Go to the "Dirty Scouts Jamboree" thread, and read the "read this first" thread about the slabs and how to get there.

I dont remember if this question got answered in the thread, and i imagine the answer is likely no, but is there cell phone service out there? I just need to make a phone call every once in a while.

Pretty sure there must be some sort of signal out there. There's like half a dozen people or so that stream videos or upload to YouTube from there so I'd imagine cells work? It's usually mountainous areas that have dead zones. I have a feeling there's coverage there.

From what i noticed, some providers have service and some don't.
There is a donation-based internet cafe, if you end up totally disconnected.

I had no problem with a cell signal at Salvation Mountain with AT&T. I imagine it's fine in Slab City.

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
    $60.00 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
    $60.00 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
    $60.00 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.
