In our first half-assed video stream/podcast episode we talk to Zim (a member of the StP website) about why they decided to move to Mexico from the USA and what it's like to live in that country.

This is the first episode of a weekly series discussing various topics related to underground travel and the community around the website Squat the Planet. Join us each week as we have a rotating cast of folks sharing their experiences in travel and answering your questions.

There are two traveler schools of thought: grab the pack and go, and extensive preparatory research....You can guess which one I'm buried in, at the moment....

Welcome!!!!
So I had a bunch of free Metrolink tickets, so yesterday first I took Coaster from San Diego to Oceanside, then used them to go all the way from Oceanside to Simi Valley (covering 150 miles in a day). I decided to stay with my SO again a couple of days as I came down pretty sick with cold and also need to buy some gear for the record breaking cold in CA. Soon enough I’ll head to Ventura and hitch from there!
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!
