I wonder where the nearest money making is, calipatria? there's a walmart down there, I wonder if its possible to top off one's reserves of human/dog food and cooking fuel/gasoline.
Anyone ever have any luck getting provisions nearby to the slabs?

that or brawley maybe? keep in mind this area is one of the poorest counties in California. If you already have money or food stamps most everything you need can be gotten from the grocery store in niland which is 3 miles away from the slabs.

Holey shit it was hot there, 120°/105° shade and 95 most of the night.
I couldn't sleep, eat build shelter or drink my water (it had all heated up to about 150)
Had to run the fuck away, thinking I'm gonna go and kill a month on the sur coast swimming in the ocean.

So...like anybody and everybody is invited to this meetup?

Never really knew about slab city before. Just watched that video in op and a couple others on youtube. Shit is pretty interesting to say the least though. Really suprised Big Bro has allowed this type of place to live on like it has for the past couple of decades honestly. Definitely wanna check it out [emoji41]

nope, only the most elite of the most dirty, filthy, crust ladenist, hobos should even attempt the journey.

i'm kidding. of course everyone is welcome! except cops.

i can't promise it'll be the next burning man, but if we get about 30 people there this year it'll be damn good time. we got the slabs which are pretty mind blowing if you've never been, and we're showing movies and telling stories and drinking beer and all that good junk :)

speaking of which, we're about 30 days away from the event, so if anyone would like to share any ideas, i'm all ears. right now we have 1-2 movies to watch at the theater at night, hanging around drinking and telling stories, i'll might do a tour of the slabs with people if they're interested, and I'm planning on recording an episode of the StP podcast there as well.

A potluck would be sweet.
As would a proper bonfire and live music. I'll have the guitar, but I'm no good :p
Beer pong tourney?
I also say we put together a formal "event" for folk trying to find road dogs and rides.

A tour would be sweet, btw. I'd totally be down :D

ah, i'm sure folks can socialize enough on their own to find travel partners and rides, although if we do have a lot of people there we could have a signup sheet for who's going where and how.

ha i think beer pong is a little too frat for this type of event.

I'm highly considering coming, unless a gig gets thrown in my lap that week or my truck breaks down. I'd be coming from San Francisco and I'll probably have room for for one other person (assuming someone I like enough to let in my house needs a lift :p). If I show up, I'll have my tiny kalimba and a shit ton of anarchist folk songs for jamming, but, as in all things, we won't know if it will be until I get there. :)

Total amount
$20.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $20.00 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
    $20.00 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 this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $20.00 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
    $20.00 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.
