We keep hearing about it, never been, and are contemplating rolling on down there with our dogs in the motorhome in 2 weeks, once our seasonal job in Nevada ends. What can you tell me about it? How cool are the people? Are there really no rules? How welcoming are they to new folks? Enlighten me!
 
We sell all kinds of other stuff in our Etsy store!

I'll be there on Thursday. Headed down from Oregon on Monday, in LA for the last few days. Maybe We will run into each other =) I'm in an 28 foot class C.

I wanna be there before long. Wanted to be there before Christmas, now it's looking a little longer. I do, however, need some advice.
I'm unsure of what sort of temperatures to expect. I wanna stay til the spring and I'm not sure what a winter is like in SoCal. How cold do the nights get? How hot are the days.
I'm also gonna be coming out of San Diego, which I hear is less than hospitable, and would be hitching to Niland. How are the rides around there?
Lastly, I'm concerned on any available temp labor I can seek out for anything cash. Or at least some way to get food in me. That's my main concern for any money; is to get food. I have habits, but they really should be going without support. My mind needs a little cleansing.

Any help would be sweet.

Can try the mega ant hill (quartzite, az). It'll be at least a million strong with old and very wealthy RV'ers and a whole bunch of flea market vending.

you could take a greyhound to Salida, ca which is only like 50 miles away. You want to make it to Niland, CA which is the small town 2-3 miles from the slabs.

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
$110.00
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
    $110.00 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.

I regret to announce that I will no longer be associating myself with squat the planet due to a very deep and nuanced personal disagreement and subsequent disrespect.
