Edit: Found a second driver. Now I am offering rides south. Leaving tomorrow afternoon and bombing down I-5. Can drop you somewhere about 80 mi from Slab City. Can't be certain how many can fit until the truck gets loaded.

There is a time constraint around this run, so you gotta be near the interstate.

----------

So...

This opportunity just popped up for me: Know someone moving THIS WEEK from PDX to Palm Springs, CA. He wants to pay two licensed people to help load, drive, and help unload a 26-ft truck.

This would be a paid flat rate, plus expenses including a flight back, if you need it. The destination is approx. 80 miles from Niland, so yeah.

I'm going to fly back in order to hopefully buy a truck, then drive to Slabs.

I've operated freight trains plenty, U-Hauls are a breeze. I'm in Central California looking to get to Slab City in time for the jamboree and this totally looks like something that could work for me. I wouldn't be any help loading up north but the unloading portion I can do no fusses. Since this appears to be a paying gig, I don't want to cripple the next guy or girl who could use it more than myself.. I'm by no means wealthy but I'm sure someone else out there is worse off.. so, I guess keep me in mind if nobody else chimes in.

Love that, homie. I think I got things figured out for this one. I have big plans of being a work mercenary, though. And, hopefully, with a truck.

Going from leather to rubber trucking will find be more work. There's a chance I hit you on the way for help, but also to just take the ride. Or even some other thing some other day. Can definitely get you much closer, if that works.

Good lookin. See you there, no matter.

I've done long U-Hauls. Not sweatin' that, but this guy wants 2 to share and make better time. I wouldn't mind learning what you've learned about trains one day. Don't know shit.

Cheers.

Total amount

Goal

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.
