“Gigantic cement pools that were converted into a skating park. Trailers and colorful dwellings with solar panels that people built with their own hands.”

Down south there is an awesome place called Slab City, you heard of it?

We drive there every winter, when it gets too cold. It is about 40-50 miles east of LA. An old army base, abandoned in the 40’s. They smashed all the buildings, leaving only the concrete slab foundations. Gigantic cement pools that they made into a skate park. Trailers and colorful dwellings with solar panels that people built with their own hands. And a hot spring, the biggest hot spring I’ve ever been to.

We have been going every year. Many folks have been coming out there for years and years and years.
