There is an information kiosk at the beginning of Slab City, right behind the “Welcome” guard shack that Leonard Knight painted (and no, Salvation Mountain is not “concrete”, its made of adobe and paint. Its been an icon of Slab City for almost 30 years). While our community is pretty loose, we are not actually as anarchistic as it may appear. The Information Kiosk contains some guidelines for visiting Slab City, they are known as our Common Courtesies. You can find a copy here: http://www.facebook.com/groups/SlabCity/ doc/204987662868201/

We have been beset with a large influx from the fringes of the “Occupy” movement this year. We know that we are a valid alternative lifestyle. We love the way we live and being off the grid is great to us. We don’t want to have it screwed up by a bunch of low-life freeloaders. It takes a great deal of fortitude and resilience to live the way we do. We don’t have time for people that just want to use and abuse Slab City. As the Slab City song says… “we ain’t going back”, so to those who would come visit us… you are welcome, but please respect what we have here.
