Any instructions on getting there? i.e. from Amtrash station? Bus station? and freight yard?

Wasn't there a posting on StP a while back about that abandon naval base , it wasn't a good place to be because some people got jacked? If someone can correct me on that!

Would love to be there! I have a few days paid vacation coming! Otherwise, I'll end up at the Train Fest event at Wisconsin State Fair Park on November 9th & 10th. THANKS!

I wish my situation was stable enough to head out that far from California. Regardless, have fun. Make some memories and cherish the time you have.

The post you are looking for is right here:

And the abandoned Navy base is not really a safe place to squat unless you do meth, beware some people have gotten killed or their shit jacked in there. Theres better places to squat in Nola.

Also they have out fences around the base and are doing work on it again. I dunno if they are sealing all the doors and windows again or if Disney is finally making it into their cruise ship stop. Just a heads up!

Yeah, there is totally security there but they seem rather lax. I figure we'll probably explore the base at night time and as long no one is running around screaming like banshees I think we'll be alright. It's UrbEx so I imagine we'd all know to be somewhat stealthy. Good looking out though!

As it stands this Jambo will probably be more like a three day hangout than anything organized. With not a lot of time to plan we're kinda just flying by the seat of our pants here.

It's started. I have that xmas eve feeling I used to get as a kid.

Can't wait to see friends and meet new folks!

Barring the universe taking a right turn, I'll be showing up with my caravan/road dawg friend.

Sorry, Y'all. I just got offered a once in a lifetime career opportunity, and unfortunately I start the job right before the Jambo.

I wont be able to make it this year, but I'm pretty sure everyone will be able to carry on without me ;)

Kinda pissed though, because I've never been to NOLA, and this would be one hell of an introduction.

I really wanted to ride through TX and LA too =(

so, i got some very exciting news, i got hired for an IT position in Austin, TX! it pays a fuckload more than the 10/hour im making working this porn store in nola, so I'm not passing it up.

they need me on monday the 11th though, which means i'm going to have to leave early on sunday. still gonna be around for friday/saturday though!

on the plus side, if anyone needs a ride to austin, i'd be happy to have the company.

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
$100.00
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 this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    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
    $100.00 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.
