A couple of years ago, we were staying at the Salton Sea and took the car over to check out Slab City. I discussed my impressions on our website: http://www.debcar.com/Story0312Indio3.htm

I've always been curious, but I don't think I'm that curious.

I think I'll just keep staying in Borrego Springs.

What are your thoughts on this place
Thanks cool.gif


I know the original post was several years ago, but there's a good 8 minute video about Slab City here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZRuv1BXEi_w

Pretty much tells it like it is....

My New Year's resolution was to eat healthier and exercise more. You can tell where my mind is wondering to - when I saw the topic heading "Slab City", I thought it was about a Rib joint, and I love BBQ ribs, so had to open the thread!!!! Seems like I am always thinking about the tasty things that I can't have. Donna, sorry I am no help with info on your request, as I have never heard of it...


Happy New Year Cheryl, perhaps you should be on the Weight Watchers forum instead, like myself, I am also eating healthier and exercising more and have lost 1.6kg in my first week. So I will be nice and slim for our USA motorhome holiday. Summer here of course so it is pleasant to be outside. JulieT

Movannernz,

You've made a mistake many of us has made at least once on this forum. You are replying to a years (5, actually) old post. I remember Cheryl from back then. Don't expect a response from her. I don't think she has been active on this forum for several years.

Hi Donna, I live here full time. I came out to Slab City with the Loners on Wheels Group ad stayed for the summer to see if I could handle it. I'm on my 2nd summer.

Summer's are brutal, but winters are very nice. There are lots of things to do like Wed nite dinners at The Oasis Club, and Friday nite music at "Radio Mike's" place and Sat night music under the stars at The Range.

Best way to get a better feel is go to the Official Website http://www.Slab-City.com for more information, maps, directions, etc.

Beware of the other website with the dot org ending...he charges $5 for outdated info and is rather a slam on a place he claims to have visited, but none of the locals know him. That should tell you something.

Full moon out here is awesome time to visit!

My thoughs would say this place is a very very small spot in CA. Our road atlas 2005 has no listed on this place. What would you find here? What city or town is close by? Is this a saw mill town up in north end of state? More information please!


It is not on the road atlas because it is not a recognized address by the Post Office. Although Fed Ex and UPS DO deliver to us.

It is near Niland. Famous for Salvation Mountain. Directions and maps can be found on the Official Website http://www.Slab-City.com

It is not that small a spot. Plenty of RV parking!
Cheers!

Okay...somebody has got to say it...it may as well be me ...

IS THIS PLACE A DUMP OR WHAT????biggrin.gif

Yes, to be sure, there are areas that are trashed left by vagrants that have some out, lived for a couple months in their cars Usually, then skipped out leaving all their junk. (To be fair, I saw a few RV spots that left junk too).

But there are some clean areas like the Loners on Wheels, and The Traveling Pals, and the Canadian area up by the canal.

The problem is this: too hot in the summer to clean up someone else's junk. And during the winter, the RV Snowbirds do not show up at our volunteer clean ups, so it is a hell of a lot of work for the full time residents, so we sort of gave up. The abandoned sites do reduce as people pick through the left overs and find something they can up-cycle. There is one woman who makes art out of trash, hehe.

Some long time residents and snowbirds don't want the trash picked up becasue they feel it discourages new RV visitors from coming out, thus more space for them. Personally, I think that sucks. So you decide if you want to experience the community fun stuff first hand, or be scared of by psycological barriers. http://www.slab-city.com has the history, events, sites to see, etc.

Here is a link to the web site of Slab city.
http://www.slabcity.org/
Slab city is one of those places that everyone must visit once, "ONCE IS ENOUGH THOUGH" , one must have an open mind when visiting there. I will let the web site fill in all the rest of the details.

For Tioga & George's thoughts and pictures on slab city go here http://vagabonders-supreme.net/SlabCity.htm

Personally I think everyone needs to see this place at least once in there life time.


The link you have above is not longer considered the Official Website of Slab City, cuz the guy is using his site and call for contributions to clean up as a scam to get your $5. Don't fall for it, he has never helped the full time residents with even buying us trash bags for our community clean up gatherings.

You can get more up to date information from http://www.slab-city.com The people that contribute articles to that website are actual residents in Slab City that have gotten their hands dirty trying to clean up sections.

By the way...TRASH BLOWS and much of it comes from Snowbirds camps that don't know how to secure it before high winds hit...but we forgive them and just pick it up when it blows in our yard. dry.gif
