    Hitchhiking to Denver

    (a true story) I told myself three days when I got here. Then there was the beer and the dog and Meg and Savannah. Oh, then there was Earth Day. Then what's his name offered me 60 bucks to pull the weeds in his lawn. All of that and Savannah. The guy I came with is heading northwest, Portland...

    Photos Cheap lenses, good photographs

    What stops you from buying the lenses you want? It isn't that you don't care about your images, it is that the lenses cost so much, presumably. This usually is true. But I found a hack. Not many people know about this, but those who do love it. Here are the steps to getting the stats you want...

    Photos My Portraits

    When I think of photography, usually, it makes me sick. Professional photographers take photographs of nothing or encourage body insecurity just as much as the actual company. People take photographs of themselves repetitively throughout the day. The wedding photographer is making an idyllic...

    On the other side of the glass.

    I hitched some 5 thousand or so miles on my first time around, the half part was by freight. While standing on the on-ramp, I would wonder why is it that these people drive by? Is it my appearance? Are they in such a rush that they can't spare the time to pick me up and drop me off? Are they...

    Worst Travel Experience? (So far)

    I will start: I had left Reno, where I was housed up for a week and a half. I got dropped off at Sparks. Hopped out in a 48 (I think, it was blue) double stack that was not completely filled by its containers. Smooth sailing to the next cc. There I got off to buy a magnum sharpie for...

    Best time to hitchhike?

    Anyone who has hitchhiked a lot has experienced something along these lines: 9am, it takes too long to get a ride. 12pm, it is a bit easier. 4pm, easy as cake. 9pm, harder. 12am, almost impossible. Correct me if I'm wrong. I would go ton say people are more likely to pick up a hitchhiker after...

    What constitutes a "good town"?

    So I have been on the road for a little over a month. It is my first time at it. I don't really know what people mean by good and bad towns. Is it just people's experiences? Or what? I hated Amarillo. That's because it's all ghetto and has strict enforcement on anti-flying-of-signs. Plus I spent...

    When it's too fucking windy

    I don't know if this is common sense, but I just discovered it. I'm in Texas; it's alway always windy in Texas. Fucking hate it. I needed to stay up lest I miss an early morning appointment. Anyway I tried hiding from the wind by a dumpster and then by a wall. Aerodynamics was not my friend. I...

    Squatters in need of an anthem?

    Hey, Fairly recently, Dick Lucas (Subhumans, Citizen Fish and Culture Shock vocalist) pointed me in the direction of the Autonomads, "music that says something? Autonomads uk anarchopolitical" It's a pretty clever mix of Ska, Dub and Anarcho-punk, plus Pixie, female vocalist (one of three...

    Another new guy

    Hey, I'm sick of everything society related, so I want to completely drop out. I realize this is drastic, so I figure I should read up first. I think I will make my decision by the end of this semester. My logic is if there is a life that if I can live without being a hypocrite (in regard to my...
