  • Little update on my life so far. Currently living in a backpackers in the far north of NZ working in the Kumara (sweet potato harvest). Should be here a around 4 months. Come september I'll be making my way south. Exploring and hitching New Zealand. Then about this time next year. I will be heading to Canada for 23 Months! On a working Holiday Visa, working and exploring Canada and the States so I will have plenty of opportunity to meet as many of you guys as possible! Lifes good!
    Been out and about for 3 and a half days. Currently about 8 hours away from home and two-thirds of the way to my final destination for the winter. Life on the road has been treating me well.
    2 days till departure. Finishing tidying up today. Didn't sell everything I wanted to so will try again when i stop by home in the spring. Getting nervously excited.

    Definitely North America, I have family in Canada and my best mate moved to Washington State for college from NZ (hes got dual citizenship) so I hope to get over there and visit him plus a whole bunch of other adventures!

    Looks like my departure is pencilled for the 29th of April. Later then I wanted but still gives me a week of hitching to get to a place to work for the winter and a bit more time to pack and sell stuff.

    Not too bad. Throwing money at a Step Van and its contents for a great analog adventure. ~ peace
    Just applied for a job over 1100km from my home. Hopefully I get it so I can cement my leaving date to get out of home, hitch there, work for the winter then get out and explore during spring and summer.

    Just over a month and a half until I plan to hit the road here in New Zealand. Figuring out what I need to store and what I need to sell. Anyone thats currently travelling got an Instagram? Looking to follow some fellow misfits in the mean time!

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
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    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
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    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
    $100.00 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.
