Does anyone have a used copy in canada? Ill pay for the shipping and a cost or we can figure something out. I looked at ordering one offline and the shipping was literaly more than the book, plus i know how much mysterious handeling and receiving charges over the border can fuck you sometimes too. Hopefully there isnt any steel or aluminum in the book. Haa.

P.s. Matt id love to hand you cash from my hand to yours for the book but i dont have that ability right now.

Can you take a PayPal payment for a copy? Otherwise I've got to transfer it to my bank account first. Let me know 'cause I will buy one.

if you'd like to send a paypal payment to [email protected] (include your address!) i'd be more than happy to sell you a copy directly. as of this post i'm selling them on etsy for 15 (that's 12.00 for the book, 3 for shipping).

Fuck yeah.
Well done, Matt. I'm kind of in a bind right now but, within a month or so, I want to get a handful of these and spread to all the folks I inspired through my autodidactic adventures.
Without StP, I would've been miserable or dead.
Thanks, homie.

This statement is freakin epic, and I seem to be hearing more of it on here. Cheerio, Matt. I need to buy a copy of your book to compliment my "Hopping Freight Trains in America".

this book is better than no book. look at it that way. it has tips by seasoned vets and compiled with great care. yes you can go online and hit random forums and websites but this is a nice affordable start-me-up so you don't start out completely lost and blind to the life. experience is the best teacher and you may not have a friend/bud but this is the next best/closest thing to those.

Hey folks, I just thought I'd share with you my first NEGATIVE review! It's pretty hilarious:

It's a waste of time - https://amzn.to/34Hufkx

Hardly a complete resource, not for Anarchist's, but for PC snowflakes..
If it took months and months to write this in the desolate wasteland of slab city then the authors time was gravely wasted.

The art is fun but that is about the only fun you'll have with this book. The prior reviews are nothing but squat the planet members leaving good reviews on a mediocre piece of work.
No chapter is truly complete, and we have 47 pages of PC LGBTQ trash that isn't needed in anyway.
Who cares what happened to a one legged freak from slab city.
Anarchist's and PC values don't belong together and I wish I could get a refund for this piece of trash. Alas I cannot anymore.
Save your money.

Also, dirty south is a micro aggression. You're so focused on being pc you forget about this?

my favorite part is the "Anarchist's and PC values don't belong together" line.

That really made my day. I love pissing off right-wing trump-tards like this :p

That review is fucking hilarious, even more hilarious when you look at their review history. Prime example of walking talking human trash!

damn, if there is seriously a butthurt sentiment over that, it is the most ridiculous irony I have ever witnessed

Planning a trip in summer 2020 from Toronto to Mexico. I have zero experience and just ordered your book. It looks promising! I'll write a review once i'm done reading it.

Thanks!

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $60.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $60.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $60.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
