It's that time again! We're looking for volunteers to help with the general operations of this year's Jamboree! Keep in mind that these duties are all very flexible and nothing is set in stone. This is just a list of the general tasks that will help the event run smoothly. If you are interested or have any questions please reply to this thread!

For Setup there are:
  • Gather fire wood.
  • Town Supply Runs.
  • General Cleaning.
For during the Jamboree:
  • Kitchen Clean up Crew
  • Garbage Duty (switching out garbage bags, taking out bar trash, etc.)
  • Morning Town Run Drivers*
  • Slab City Exploration Drivers**
  • General security
  • Quick Morning Library Cleaning (Clean Quickly, Get Fed Faster!)
For after the Jamboree:
  • Kitchen Clean Up Crew
  • Garbage Haulers
  • Recycling Haulers
  • Library Deep Cleaning; sweeping, shelving, dusting, surface wiping, etc.
  • Campsite cleaners
*Morning Drivers will need to have a vehicle and leave at approximately 8am on Friday, Saturday Sunday. To avoid prolonged waiting we're asking that everyone who wants to go into town be ready to leave at 8am

**Volunteers will need to have a vehicle and be willing to leave at the specified times.

Ill be there for sure to help out. Cant wait for my 3rd year going to this. Its always a blast. Also for volunteering, due to the fact the chamber of commerce is officially no longer able to give free water, having people who can go on large water hauls would be really important too.

I will certainly need room in my bed for goods and dirty kids and stuff, but if there is a need for particular battery-powered tools or hand tools, lemme know. Circular saw, fein tool, angle grinder, sawzall, drill/impact, etc. Anything else I have requires electricity.
I can also bring screws, nails, what else?

Think about potential fixit projects and we'll see if I can bring the necessary tools and/or materials.
Maybe just message me, so we don't clog up this thread with logistical details.

We are not going to be worrying about any sort of building or maintenance projects during the party, as there will be a lot of other things to be dealing with. Andrew might have some better ideas about things that may need to get quick fixes before the party, but he will likely have all the main stuff taken care of, and I'll be back well before the party as well. There are a few larger projects that we'll be working on after the party and through the winter season as we always do.

Sounds reasonable. I'd love to arrive early and stay late help with shit.
I guess I'll know more precisely as it gets closer.
I didn't even have a tent when I went last time, I'm excited to offer up tools/services this time. Thanks for the heads up, though.

@CaptainCassius basically we need people with vehicles to transport other people around slab city as well as the surrounding salton sea areas. Drivers will not need to be familiar with the area, just willing to be chauffeurs.

We're going to need drivers and vehicles for our traditional exploratory outing to somewhere neat near slabs during the weekend, which is yet to be decided, and also for the daily supply run on all three days, which will probably be done in the late morning.

And so three months later—to the DAY—I crawled back to the spot and retrieved your rainfly from where you'd forgotten it. (I should burn it for all the trouble it caused...but I might keep it as a memento of a time when things between us were still good.)

I just got back to LA from the Bay - it was a very busy but happy trip. Went to Mt. Diablo, went to Berkeley and the City, even met up with @beyondthepaleogender! I did Craigslist rideshare both there and back, and both rides went fucking awesome :) Gonna post up for a bit and then I will (finally) begin hitchhiking east. Also - as of yesterday, I have been modding /r/Runaway for exactly a year now! :)
Been a while since I last posted on this thing.
