where you live?
How it works is, anyone can go out and scout spots for it, and it pretty much only gets decided at the last minute. So nobody really knows too far in advance, because there is no selected spot. This helps weed out the bad, so I guess it is sort of selective, but I think in a good way, since most of the people that it weeds out are those who aren't willing to take the chance to go to the middle of nowhere on short notice (+drainbows)
I will say, it's fucking awesome and I haven't heard anyone who's gone say they didn't have a good time. Just head for the northwest around the time of it, you can count on the coordinates getting posted a couple days before.

Last year it was out by Prineville in Oregon, and I went and had a blast. I enjoyed it a lot more than the national rainbow gathering. Where it is is pretty much a last minute decision, and I think the exact location only shows up on the website a few days ahead of time. Other than that, it's generally during the week of the full moon in June, I think.

It's at the end of this month (June 29th-July 8th). You can pretty much assume it'll be in Oregon. I'm going to be there, will others? Maybe we should consider creating Squatters' camp there, for StP members/friends? Who'd be interested in coming and being part of this camp?

Things to remember: Absolutely definitely bring your own food and water. SPAZ camp usually shows up (apparently), and acts as a kitchen, but they weren't there last year so don't count on them. This isn't a rainbow gathering, where you can count on others to support you, although probably nobody will let you starve to death.

I keep meaning to make it back to this but it's overlapping with something else this year up in Port Townsend so it's not gonna happen this year. Y'all have fun!

So, there's still no definite location, but I'm bumping this post back up because I'm hanging out in Oregon until the date is announced. After that and a trip to my new favorite store (WINCO! Thanks Arrow!) I'll be heading out to wherever the hell it's being held. Anyone else interested in meeting up/forming a lil StP camp? Look for me!

I'll most likely be hitching and walking, as I am prone to do. STILL waiting on a location...

prepare to wait awhile... i tried to go two years ago. hung out in the designated area ( 200 mi. radius) for three weeks, and then found out THE day before that it was gonna be in norcal instead of NE Oregon.

got there the day most of the people had left at like dark.
which sucked. I heard it was great though, so have fun.

I had no problem hitching last year. Best to just hang around Portland or Eugene until the definite location shows up on the website, and make tracks for Mutant Fest then. It looks like this year it'll be in SE Oregon.

Hey so if a few people can pitch on gas I've got a friend with a bit of space willing to give lifts down from PDX in the next day or so. PM me if interested

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.
