    How do I begin to plan my route?

    First time I went traveling I had this huge plan laid out and it immediately went to shit after I made some friends and went north for a while instead of west. I would just get some maps for the first leg and plan point to point. The plan will always be changing.

    Is the Greyhound still pretty laid back?

    Atlanta will sometimes have people walking around checking bags. Salt Lake City, Utah is the only city I've been through that makes everyone line up and checks every single bag. Arizona, and it seems like anywhere close to the Mexican border, will have these random searches from Border patrol...

    how bad of an idea would a cadillac hearse be?

    the more i hear and read into it the more of a pain in the ass this vehicle seems to be. Guess im gonna have to pass on this. I def dont have the money for expensive parts or changing gears and such like that. oh well. Thanks fer the input every one.

    how bad of an idea would a cadillac hearse be?

    how bad of an idea would a cadillac hearse be?

    thats the big one. i figured parts for these things would be expensive. probably couldnt find much at a pull a part either.

    how bad of an idea would a cadillac hearse be?

    its 1991 Cadillac Brougham Hearse, 103,000 miles for like 3k. Thinking of getting it and turning it into a camper. Thing is i dont know much about cars. Would this just be a really dumb idea? Do cadillacs hold up well over long distance?

    Unsure of some stuff

    if yer 18-25 years old you could try a conservation corp that offers housing. Go work in the woods for a season, save all yer cash and then travel back home by whatever means suites yer fancy. Might let you test the waters without having to totally jump ship. The California Conservation Corps...

    Depression Steals Your Soul and Then it Takes Your Friends

    im struggling with all of this now. you're right about empathy being finite. Took a while to learn but friends are not therapists. As you said, the most loving person can be worn down. Currently i dont have the resources to get medical help, so i keep it in, and try to manage it on my own...
