i could soooo use that ride, but sadly i don't think i can go anymore.
i'd have to leave on the 9th and be back early on the 11th which is kind of tricky.
damn commitments...

I'm going to be hopping down from Portland this week, I'd love to say I'm going to make it for sure, but without someone to kick my ass there's a good possibility I'll end up getting sidetracked (i.e drunk) and miss it. I'll do my best though.

hey, im going to be riding trains from oakland down to stp fest and am looking for a travel partner...planning to leave sometime around october 5, if anyone's interested, send me a message...(also, id potentially be down to leave from roseville or san jose to go along coast down to s.l. obisbo and then on south to stp fest, but probably easier to just go outta oakland...)

well i had a mental "spoof" i guess you could call it so I dont think i'll be going. Plus i just cant afford the gas anymore. no money and trust me, flying a sign will not be enough. its almost $100 to fill my tank and that gets me around 330 miles. plus i just have no drive. stupid mental funk.

That sucks, your van is a thirsty beast at around 10 mpg. There were other people riding with you in the van. Do you think everyone flying signs all day could get enough together ? After coming down as far as you have from seattle would suck if the last little bit kept you from going. Wish I could pitch in but right now funds is a massive issue for me. Hope to see you at slab !

Well today my worst suspicions have been confirmed.

i will NOT be able to get a generator, as previously planned. The people who were going to loan it to me (friends of my dad's) have refused to loan it out to anyone.

Sorry guys. If generators are still needed, I'd suggest renting one. I'm not sure how much they are, but it looks like it may be expensive. Perhaps look at United Rentals or Home Depot/Lowes? I work at Home Depot right now so I can get some quotes - no employee discount, unfortunately.

Again, sorry about that. :(

In other news, I'll be there Friday for sure, it seems. Saturday I'm trying to get off of work. :/

See ya all soon!

hey all, i would really love to get to stp fest!
i am currently kickin it with nails(drunkheartedman) in the pdx area.
we're going to be heading down that way regardless, but at the rate we're going, making it to the fest seems a little out of reach. =[
anyone heading down there in a vehicle maybe that would have room for 2 people & 2 dogs?
WILL HAVE CASHFLOW! lol
& i have a valid drivers license.
we can help with gas, ciggs, beer, driving.. whatever.

Hey yall. Just got word that Black Sparrow Press can play. They're really good. And very broke. They asked if I could give $40 for gas so they can get back to LA after it's over. They have gas to get out there.

I'm broke,too. But I'm going to what I can to give to them. Can anyone here who can spare it of course chip in a few bucks? If 15 people threw in 2 bucks each, that would cover it. I'll get what I can in the next few days.

*********************************************************************
Got $20 down.

I talked to one of the guys in the band and he said he might get another band to play as well that he knows, so we'll see...

Fuck yeah! Checked the weather report and it will be a little cooler than I thought, highs late 80's to mid nineties. Remember that's with no humidity so it's definitely tolerable.

That also means nights (and I slept out close to here recently) will be a little chilly. Which means the hot springs there will be fucking amazing after dark.

Total amount
$0.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 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
    $0.00 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
    $0.00 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
    $0.00 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.
