okay, apparently it keeps fucking up when i try and post to the stp fest III thread. anyone else having this problem? it keeps complaining that my post is too short.

so anyways, im planning on flying out to san diego and getting a ride with hartage to slab city. hopefully we'll be out there the night of the 7th. i am bringing as much money as i can for supplies (tiki torches, tarps, pvc pipe for foam swords) and a fair amount of booze to share. if others can bring out stuff as well to share (food, water, booze, etc) we shouldn't have too many problems.

can't wait to see you all out there!

I'm gonna try to be there but can't make any promises. I'm back on the west coast but don't know if I'll be able to make it there yet or not.

WHAT ARE YOU BRINGING:

If you're bringing something, post it here so that we don't end up with a whole bunch of the same shit and so we can see how much we have and if you need to bring anything, etc.

Me:

-a pound of good coffee
-$200/food stamps. Probably a little less by then and hope to leave with some left!
-an extra 8'X6' tarp if someone needs it
-cutting board
-2 medium pots, (but not a huge one so if anyone has a very large pot and can bring it, post here!)
-whatever food I dumpster the couple nights before from TJ's

I'll be bringing $200 in food stamps, and as much tobacco and alcohol as I can make money for before I get there. I think I also might try spending some of my food stamps on the ingredients for homemade alcohol and stay out there for a while.

Hmm we have a little propane burner, some food stamps.... Not really sure what all.. What do you need people to bring?? Might try to hunt up a cooler depends on car space. Would suggest folks freeze water if they can.

Update: I'm up near Olympia, WA and am having problems with my home on wheels. I'm still trying to make it down there to the slabs but no guarantee that it's going to happen.

    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.
