    Sad - & always more tragic when it's a younger person. May her soul rest in peace.

    I don't know if anyone here met Tati on their travels, but she was an amazing person. I met her years before she started riding the rails and have kept in touch with her in an uncle-esque role over the years. I found out this morning that she...

    I missed out on a lot of awesome travel opportunities when I was younger because I was waiting for other people to go with me. I found going solo and making friends along the way ensures that I don't miss anything i really want to do and you make...

    I like sazon and jerk seasoning for my kit. So much flavor, for so little work.

    I've used these before and it works surprisingly well, but unless you're staying put for a while or it's your only option it's a bit too much work, for the outcome because the dent and roast out if you move them.

    Reminds me of a quote I heard years ago that really stuck with me. "If you watch the sun rise/set enough times, it just becomes 6:00." I know that's been true for me at points for me while traveling. It's usually when I first start going out...

    Like a few others mentioned, I wouldn't worry about how many miles you're clocking if you are having a good time. Comparison is the thief of joy, right? That being said, I used to do 40 - 50 miles a day when I'd load up my bike and take it out...

    I'm somewhere in the middle on this. I always tell people it's a friends list, not an acquaintance list. My criteria is pretty simple: 1. Do I like you? 2. Do I know you in real life? 3. Have we hung up intentionally in the last year outside of...

    Walden on Wheels by Ken Ilgunas is the book that got me excited about hitting the road while sleeping in the van and looking in to "alternative" styles of travel. Into the Wild and A Walk in the Woods, both are common re-reads from me too.

    I've never had the opportunity to become a "real" traveler, and definitely if you "stay home" it does not have to be "the same". Stop hanging out with normies and/or druggies! Don't you know there are bikers and hippies and non-feminist...

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.
