Slab City Snow Birds – Is it Safe?
There are hundreds of people living or visiting Slab City, California.
Why is it so popular? Most importantly…is it safe?
After researching who goes there and why people seem to flock to this apparently empty and barren piece of the Californian desert, I realised there are as many different reasons to go there as there are people.
The recent economic collapse in 2009 saw an increase in those looking for some peace and sanctuary in Slab City. But, there are also many who live ostensibly ‘normal, ordinary’ lives in houses but choose to live in the desert during the winter.
This excellent video was made by a recent convert to ‘living in a van’ ‘RV Life’. Carolyn’s video is sympathetic to the reality of some of the residents of Slab City. Take a look.. She is also a ‘Digital Nomad’. Her YouTube channel is called ‘Carolyn’s RV Life’.
