    Plains/Steppes with no People?

    Plains as in large flat areas of land. Where can I go in the US to find plains with no people? Not exactly desert (although feel free to mention some if you think they're good to check out) as I'm looking for something more temperate and less full of snakes and scorpions. Just wide open space...

    Standing Pee Devices (For those with vaginas)

    Ended up getting that Tinkle Bell. Have used it twice so far, can confirm it seems to work well thus far.

    sober travellers roll call

    Quit most drugs a few years back, had a few relapses, been pretty good for the past year and some change. Still struggle with cannabis and planning to quit buying again soon. One worry I have about travel is being put in more drug culture spots.

    So I'm probably signing for it on Monday unless I change my mind.

    Planning to build out a van for rubber tramping. Originally was thinking a minivan, but after doing a floor plan I think I'd be much happier in a full size van, primarily for floor space. I recognize it's really important to me to have a designated religious space and it's incredibly difficult...

    Standing Pee Devices (For those with vaginas)

    Starbucks Venti/Trenta cups are also excellent for this. I would do that when I was working at Sbux.

    Standing Pee Devices (For those with vaginas)

    Anyone used one of those things (funnels, cups, whatevers) that let you pee while standing with a vagina? For example: Amazon link There are cheaper ones and some more expensive ones. How're people's success rates with these things? I've just been squatting during day hikes and there's a...

    Anyone run with a Honda Odyssey?

    Mine is 2009! Honestly can’t remember if my family bought it used or new. I’ve never really tracked MPG, so I’d have to look it up. Not as amazing as a Prius not as bad as a big RV. TPMS light has been on for months, recently had something pop off the engine which was apparently an easy fix...

    Anyone run with a Honda Odyssey?

    Anyone live out of a Honda Odyssey? I’ve been driving one since high school and it’s a 2009 model at 160k miles and still going. Although it’s clearly at the end of its days after a bunch of accidents. Still works and I drive it daily but it’s a senior now and ongoing repairs are going to start...

    There's Amongst White Clouds, which is about monks and nuns that live/squat on this mountain in China. Here's a Pirate Bay Link and here's a Youtube Link

    Reflections on Alms

    In reading threads on spanging, begging, flying a sign, etc. I come to realize a few things. First, that anything someone gives me is a sacrifice on their part. Even the current charity I give to others is a number in my budget. How impactful that sacrifice is varies, although often it is those...
