STP Needs a Retreat! What do you Think? (1 Viewer)

I'm sure many of us want a place to call "our own" when we aren't traveling. I was thinking what if somehow somebody bestowed a huge chunk of change on some poor kids who don't have much but their personal belongings and a will to live independently. Many different options came to mind. A personal favorite is an island. I have taken a moment to pick out something that would enable all of us to live out our "pirate dreams". Don't ask me how much this island is...they are giving a price only on request. I'm not sure how reasonable of an expectation it would be to actually purchase such a property, just some lame ass thing to dream about. I know there are other properties out there that are nice, but a little more reasonable. If you had crazy cash, where would you like to put an STP retreat?

I think an island is a good option:

i've always thought that having an StP collective home base would be pretty awesome, but not sure how to work out the where/when/how.

IT would be a cool thing to have, but your right ,where would you put it. In the middle of the country? In a city? on a farm? etc to make it accessible to the most people.

personally i think people would find their way there no matter where it was. slab city would be a decent option, but i'm not sure i want to spend that much time there :p

I think just deciding on a place and taking over it would be cool. I don't think you need to buy anything. Just a piece of land away from the road maybe. There's already meccas people go to as I understand.

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

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
    $90.00 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
    $90.00 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.
