    I'm a cheap traveler as well, maybe I can learn something here, Fyla. I'm subscribing as well.

    I've camped at the slabs a couple times and wandered all over the Salvation Mtn....had no idea that there was a protocol there. Who knew?

    Feyala,
    Welcome aboard ...there are rules here :deal....and you seem to abide by the primary ones:
    1) Have a story to tell;
    2) Have the ability to tell that story with some semblance of it being entertaining;
    3) Have some pics....cuz some of the FF's here can't read but get the gist of a photo;
    4) Adore your current ride;
    5) Keep us in some anticipatory suspense so you get lots of readers (cuz the # of hits your story gets is part of the narcissistic payoff);
    6) Pretend to be humble ....

    And you are doing a great job of all these.

    I like your writing style and appreciate that you have done some "hard time"....

    Keep writing and riding....but you gotta do more pics....just for the Inmates that can't read

    By those measurements I'm a terrible storyteller! Well, except for the witless banter and mental masturbation, I'm a pro at those...

    We didn't stay too long at Steamboat Springs, they just had to switch drivers. I used to work there though, back in 06! I did housekeeping one summer at the Grand. I think I was one of three folks there who spoke english, haha. I think that was before I went veg though, I seem to remember eating at the kfc on my lunch break more than once.

    Always! That's what it's all about!

    :thumb

    Yeah! I found a number of good tips over on the Jamie Z thread and put in my $.02 somewhere in there. I tend to be more on the "classifies as homeless" scale of things though, most people aren't as shameless as I am, haha. Hopefully something I say can help you out!

    There isn't much of a protocol at Slab City proper, East Jesus is just a small corner of it, with their own rules. :D I want to go back there this fall, maybe spend a month there... they've invited me to spend a whole winter there, if I want to, but I think Mexico is calling my name.

    I did read the rules! I just don't really have an ending to my story, haha. I've seen a few other long-term ride reports though, so I should be okay (I hope!).

    Thanks for the compliments!

    I do have more pics, I swear! I got a bit better at taking them when I gave up on the point and shoot completely... I've also got a TON of Slab City, but I don't want to spam with too many pics either...

    YOU!

    Haha, figures you'd randomly stumble across this. I was going to note you and Nixels once I got it finished.

    Good to see you around! :freaky

    :clap:clap:clap An intertaining young gal on a DR650 roaming about the country is great. Plus a unique style about telling her story. :freaky Keep it coming, Love it! Your bus ride had me pondering on my bus rides from home to San Diego and Carlsbad , California in the early 60's. Really put a smile on my face. Safe Journies. :clap:clap:clap
