folks who know me have my #.
wheels...

if we can get 12 up there in the great NW, we'll be good : )

it's still a bit far from november, but i'm looking at having enough time to land for 3 full days, minimum..

i need to look at possibilities of getting down on 2 or 3 weekends, beforehand..

def a possibility...

hold me to it..

in fact.. @EphemeralStick .. Andy, if you aren't doing too much, and if I cover gas down & back, would it be possible to make a couple of preliminary runs, in, say, september or october?

grab some cheap shit up here & stock up : )

?

I intend to be there with a pickup truck and can help out with town runs (if people want to ride in the bed), firewood, etc.

What part of slabs are people going to be around? Library?

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.
Definitely interested in helping out for before, during, and after!

Posted earlier but am closer to having my shit sorted haha.

Aiming to be in Slabs by the the 8th (maybe a couple days earlier) and am happy to help out with anything needed.

Will have a car with me too and can drive people 'round, will either have three or five spare seats...still messing around with my dodgy, basic camper convert. All sweet to do runs as well, and not sure what ya mean by "general security" but I've done a bit at DIY shows in sketchy places back home.

If I'm still around I'd be happy to help out afterwards as well, just depends on whether a mate from OC is getting a ride to/from with me.

Yo, this have kinda gone fuckup for me and I need to fly back to my corner of the globe. Sorry to anyone that was relying on my wheels for supply runs or whatnot.

Bummed I can't make it, would have been amazing meeting you all.

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
    $70.75 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 his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $70.75 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
    $70.75 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.
