the other night i got as piss drunk as i could....i was feeling bored/depressed/alone and everything i owned was soaked and cold and the pounding rain would not relent so i figured what the hell, i'm getting drunk. i'm glad i did cause i never would have stumbled upon this empty mansion house. I'm don't really even remember how i found/got into the place but it was amazing. like 3 or 4 stories high with lots of rooms and bathrooms with running water. one of the rooms was like a big music hall or something with shiny checkered floors and high ceiling with amazing acoustics......i tripped a motion sensor alarm in one part of the building but the cops never came....haha....i would stay there more but there is some construction goin on so i think it wise to only use when i have to.

god i love waking up in squatted buildings not remembering how i got there.

Waking up to everyone standing around you would have been funny.
Thinking its empty, but their all just deep sleepers

had to be picky but does passing out drunk in a random empty house really fall under the heading of "squatting"? uh.. I have to say I don't think so. it's a lil more involved than that.

but other than that.. sounds like you had fun. always entertaining to see where you end up on a drunken night, solong as it's not jail.. but even at times that can be funny.

yea you're right mouse...it's not at all squatting. i know there is much more to it than that. ;) and i don't recommend entering places like that when drunk... it just blows my mind how random it was....like the squatter gods answered my prayers that night and provided this awesome place just for me to stumble upon.....

uh... oregon for the moment
yeah that sounds cool as fuck, my buddy and i squatted what was big enough that i would call it a mansion in georgia for like 2 weeks it looked like it was three stories high, but the top two floors had been torn out and there was rubble everywhere, still had the typical huge entrance with the staircase on either side to get you upstairs, lots of books and paperwork still some furniture but there was so much debris that it was hard to check the whole thing out... still a really cool squat

I wish I could stumble upon such things as this. All I can ever find is run down houses in Detroit
beautiful, mansion-like run down houses though. have you been up and down trumbull ave? only place i really stayed in detroit, but fucking gorgeous empty houses everywhere. i want 'em all. swear to god next summer i'll be spending at least a couple months in detroit fixing a place up. squatting's fucking easy in michigan, too!

Detroit for the most part is a damn ghost town now. Lots of empty factories, stores, houses, etc.
I lived in Michigan for a long time and watched most of the state die. Not a good place if you are trying live a "legit" life with a house and job. But for squatters its awesome. There are large areas of suburbs with almost brand new houses that no one will ever live in again.

    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
    $35.00 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.

    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.

    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.
