This guy has a pretty interesting YouTube channel.

Slim Potatohead roams around the continent with a pop-top A-Liner trailer and makes videos about his adventures.

Here's his take on Slab City.

Seeing those hanging lights brings to mind a couple of Luci Lights I bought last year. They are solar charged, no batteries ever. They are inflatable for packing down into a flat circle. They have a multitude of colors one can choose and a charge lasts many hours. The brightest color setting could 'almost' serve as a rewarding light.

I recently saw a solar charged light array with some hanging lighted balls that also have a variety of colors and can be set to alternate between various colors. These are on the website Wish.com. I might be picking up a few of these for my next whale magic adventure.

Thanks to all here, AND, bless our veterans tomorrow when you have the chance to show appreciation.

I used these inside my bar structure at my Camp at Burningman a few years ago, had an itch to bring and use them somewhere on this road trip, the Slabs seemed to be the right place !!
have no idea why the first pic loaded sideways...

Some day, somehow, I gotta get my butt down there.

Great shots, IJ.
