The Last Free Place in America

Welcome to Slab City –  the last free place in America (so some say). It’s a squatter’s camp of about 150 locals who reside off the grid in all kinds of makeshift houses, caravans, old buses and tents. It’s got no electricity, no running water, no sewers or toilets, no trash pickup service – but it’s got a church. Walking around reminded me of what the hangover party of Burning Man would be like, once the acid wears off, the fires burn down and the regular people go home to their regular lives.
