I never thought I would say I felt most out of my comfort zone in my travels while still in the United States. Slab City did just that to me. I say "out of my comfort zone" as a positive thing; a learning experience. I didn't feel unsafe or in danger. I don't think that is what being outside of your comfort zone means, but it can mean feeling just a little uncomfortable. I felt like I was somewhere unlike anywhere I have ever been or might be again.
To be honest, I am not sure how to start this post. I do not want to feel preachy, I don't want to call anyone out, or anything along those lines. I want to learn and teach. I am in no means an expert, I am just passionate.
