    Gas bikes in Cali?

    That's what I was thinking too, but im disabled and cant haul all my shit by peddling. I thought about an electric bike but they're too expensive and I have no clue where to charge them while traveling, thought about a solar hookup but that's way out of my price range.

    Gas bikes in Cali?

    I contacted a guy in LA (Primo's) that has been doing gas bikes for years and explained to him what I wanted to with it, he seemed to know his way around an engine and was glad I told him it wasn't for racing but for hauling so he could tweak it. Told me the bike with a lock, helmet, and lights...

    Gas bikes in Cali?

    So I've never actually traveled but I'm currently couch surfing in the city and am absolutely sick of it, I was thinking about getting a gas bike and touring through California. I know some gas bikes arent street legal but some are? I also read that if it doesn't go more than 20mph you don't...

    Cheap but good quality sleeping bag?

    That's very true, forgot about that. I have a mummy sleeping bag that I have woken up a bit sweaty with as well, those are probably the best for keeping cold out but freaky waking up to sweaty feet and it's cold af outside..

    Cheap but good quality sleeping bag?

    If you're really cold and can't afford or carry much you can add one of those emergency space blankets to what you already have, they work, annoying sounding though. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Coghlan-s-Emergency-Blanket-52-x-82-5/23543585 You could even get the tent version of them for cheap...

    Dumpster diving

    Also I gotta add, you wont always score on one hit. Most people who dive know a bit about the store, like if the store has a certain day they toss all the sell by stuff. And usually, we end up going to multiple stores in the area. You might end up with almost nothing one night, and the next you...

    Dumpster diving

    Some employees can be dicks, especially at TJ's. So I'd stalk the area the night before, or find out when everyone leaves because there's usually a 2-3hr gap for most stores (usually 1am to 3am, different everywhere though) when no one is there and that's the safest time. There's also security...

    Where are all the punks?

    Believe it or not there's a big welcoming progressive folk punk scene out in Los Angeles, mostly up in San Fernando and San Gabriel Valley.. So I guess moreso surrounding LA areas. Btw if any of you all ever find yourselves out here, and you're chill then hmu I'll bring ya to a show.
