Stove, you're my (our?) connection to this - what's going on, where's this at?

Possibly happening, Not happening, or Definitely happening. Moving from which to which?
 
We sell all kinds of other stuff in our Etsy store!

Unfortunately, with Lily's visa being denied, my somewhat lack of support from the euro side on coordination, and the fact that I will be on the trail April->Sept or so, it doesn't look like it's happening.


Besides, I think the StP gathering will be a blast.

heh have fun. In lieu of an American counterpart to 789, I'll be celebrating somewhere in mid-Washington hopefully, up in the Cascade mountains.

beach sounds good. not sure where.

Most of the Oregon coast is cold, all the time. It might be better at the southern part of the Oregon coast.

I have heard that Ashland is a good place for hitching to, but it is difficult to get out of. I'm not so sure about Grant's pass, because there really isn't anywhere to go that I can thing of.

Salem might be a good place if we want the press. Just go to the front of the capital or Water Front Park. For camping, I have family who own about an acre of woods, just south of Salem. And my other side of the family owns huge ass forest next to a farm just east of Salem. Maybe a few people can crash at my place (it might be weird for me to come home after a few months away, and be like "Sup Mom? I brought some strangers home to chill").

Redmond (close to Bend) might be another option. I have an uncle out there, who has a farm (or it was his girlfriends).

I have family through out Oregon, many frown upon my lifestyle, but they might let us stay at there places.

What about having it at Slab City ???
Alot of hitchers pass through.

And there are hitchikers gatherings there already......

If you wait too much longer to go to Slab City then you won't want to be there!
The season for slab city bearable temperatures is pretty much over with. Its soon to be 110+ degrees. :zombie:

I'd have to learn towards ashland. Decent weather, huge park, easy to hitch in and out of (I've never waited more than an hour) and if we did it legit I wouldn't expect too much tension with the locals.

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
$60.00
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
    $60.00 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 his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $60.00 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
    $60.00 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.
