    Yeah, director is like a principal for adults? Like the person who runs the school.. but that job was wack, didn't actually end up opening the school. Thanks for your interest, Matt. I guess I'm just not too interested in writing atm.. thought about starting a blog or something, but I must...

    Sup, yall? Hope you are well It's time for me to get new shoes!! I wore my New Balance 574 Newbucks every day for over a year and a half. After probably hundreds of miles, they're finally wore out. They served me well, in cities and wilderness all over the world. They did not see a whole...

    Still broke as a joke in Morocco, but got a job as a director of a school, so hopefully that real adult money will start rollin in soon. There's a rainbow gathering in the desert at the end of next month. I want to go, but I need to start working and this school opens next month. Found a good...

    How and when to discuss polyamory with potential partners

    Thanks everyone for your viewpoints! I had a rough year or so trying to find a partner.. but I learned a lot. I will try to summarize.. rejection can hurt and be frustrating, but remember that the person is not rejecting you, they are rejecting the proposal for intimacy.. it does not reflect...

    Portugal fucking rocks, staying at this chill work exchange/ community living place. I dig it so hard. They have mega pizza parties every Friday, so looking forward to seeing that. Should be about 500 people here (that’s how this place makes it’s money). Love it. http://wp.fridayhappiness.org/

    Walking shoe recommendations?

    Walked to a gorgeous lake today. It was about 4 miles away. After a couple miles, my dogs started barkin’ (feet started hurting, if you don’t know that phrase).. So, I’m still happy with the new shoes (much better than my old worn out pair), but some more shock absorption would be nice. And...

    How and when to discuss polyamory with potential partners

    Cool, thanks. That helps. I definitely wouldn’t withhold information just to get in someone’s pants. That is super uncool and I’m sorry someone did that to you. I tend to communicate very openly, so that’s good. Thanks again for your input, old fogey advice is usually the best (since it’s...

    How and when to discuss polyamory with potential partners

    I feel the same way, don’t really care for the polyamorous label, but I probably am. I think it more accurately describes people who have multiple on-going relationships that happen simultaneously. So far, that is not my experience. But I’m definitely not a strictly monogamous person, so I...

    How and when to discuss polyamory with potential partners

    What if I am not actively sexual with anyone else, but reserve the right to be? Is that an issue of consent that should that be discussed before getting physical? I know it’s best to communicate as much as possible before getting busy, but in certain situations it’s like what Beegod Santana...

    How and when to discuss polyamory with potential partners

    Thanks guys, you’ve definitely given me some food for thought. I will keep it all in mind. I think it’s important what oak moth said about consent.. I’ve been pretty open with everyone, so far. I haven’t hurt anyone except myself because I didn’t clearly communicate what I wanted out of a...

    How and when to discuss polyamory with potential partners

    Cool! Yeah, I believe in the whole ‘no restrictions’ thing too. I want my loved ones to do whatever it is that makes them truly happy, no matter what. And the same goes for myself. And love has no bounds! I’m pretty sure I will know when to bring up the poly thing with my next love interest...

    How and when to discuss polyamory with potential partners

    More info: I’m specifically interested in tips from other poly people on how and when they discuss their “free love” nature with their partners/ potential partners. Context: I have a boyfriend, Ollie, and we have a wonderful free-spirited relationship. We can be completely open and honest...

    How and when to discuss polyamory with potential partners

    I agree, but I also tend to move kinda fast physically. Maybe I’ll try slowing it down a bit.. haha, I’m just imagining that first night when you’re about to bang someone, saying “hold on a minute, how do you feel about kids and marriage?” Awkward.. But who knows, they might be cool about it...

    How and when to discuss polyamory with potential partners

    I’ve always been polyamorous, but have only recently accepted/ realized my ‘true nature’. I’ve had a bit of trouble with my last three partners (but they probably just weren’t right for me).. ended up just being one night stands, which wasn’t what I was looking for.. it was frustrating for me...

    Walking shoe recommendations?

    Got some new chuus! They’re New Balance 574 Newbucks. They’re newbuck leather, so not super breathable (but better than gortex, I think). I sprayed them with a suede protector (should help a bit with water resistance). They seem to do well in the wet and cold. Might be a bit hot in the...

    Walking shoe recommendations?

    Discovering that the waterproof yet breathable thing is kinda bullshit. I think Gwasher is right and I shouldn’t go for completely waterproof. And SlankyLanky is right about gortex being hot as fuck. I tried on a pair of super fancy gortex running shoes and my feet were hot after just a few...

    Update: still working on the shoe mission. Discovering that I need a wide toe box. I guess New Balances have a wide toe box and maybe that’s why they worked for me. Thanks again for all the help. I’ll find some dang shoes eventually!

    What's the consensus on Wichita KS?

    P.s: A note about Kansas: It can actually be a beautiful place, especially in certain parts of the countryside. I’ve traveled the world a bit, been to places like Thailand and the desert in Morocco which are rumored to have “the most beautiful sunsets”, but actually, so far, I have never been...

    What's the consensus on Wichita KS?

    I am in Wichita right now visiting my parents. It is not a very good destination. I grew up here.. It’s not a bad place, but it’s not a place you’d wanna live (or spend much time in). Only good things that come to mind are the fact that it has a nice zoo, and relatively low cost of living...

    Hey, can you post a picture of your tarp setup? If not, that’s ok. I’m just curious.. I’m considering bringing a tarp with me, but haven’t decided. I’m planning on doing work exchange type stuff where shelter is provided, but it might be nice to have the option to camp.. anyways, thanks for...

    Oh dang. That sux, maybe dolphins just get the wrong idea when people are too friendly. I know I’ve been attracted to friends who weren’t interested.. I didn’t start grinding on them though (even though I wanted to). I guess me and dolphins gotta learn to read the signals!

    Walking shoe recommendations?

    I’m not super concerned about athlete’s foot and stuff, but one time I shared slippers with a stinky foot person and after that my shoes stank kinda bad for a while.. I think the bacteria was contagious and got into my shoes, don’t wanna do that again. Yuck

    I think there is health insurance designed for travelers. I used to get messages about it from Internations, which is a website for expats. But I personally don’t have health insurance, and don’t know much about it.

    Walking shoe recommendations?

    Bringing these as my second pair. They aren’t good walking shoes (that’s what the good quality pair is for), but they are good for the beach/ swimming time, lounging around, slipping on in the middle of the night when I have to pee, playing in warm weather rain, and wearing in public showers to...

    Moments that made everything worth it?

    Gotcha. Yeah, it’s probably best to finish strong in school and abide by the wishes of your parents while you live with them.. They probably have good intentions (like wanting to keep you safe), but that sucks they don’t give you your space. Like Gwasher said, feel free to vent about it here...

    Moments that made everything worth it?

    That is beyond uncool. I wish everyone had loving and caring caregivers. But it’s cool that you are a caring person who is willing to help others who are going through similar stuff. It seems like the apple has fallen a long way from the tree and grown into something beautiful. (Apologies if...

    Moments that made everything worth it?

    P.s: a note about the “no regrets” thing.. My life experiences are not universal. I have had a wonderful life, but not everyone has it so good. In fact, it seems that a lot of people experience trauma, which sucks. And yes, it’s a big and potentially dangerous world out there, so stay...

    Decent Rain Proof Tent?

    I have a North Face tent that I am quite fond of. It only requires 3 poles, kind of a unique design.. It stays dry unless I don’t pitch it properly (should be on a little bit of a slope, otherwise you might end up in a puddle if there’s heavy rain). I’m pretty sure it’s called Talus 33. But...

    Super interesting story.. I told it to my dad and he said that it sounds like this atmospheric phenomenon called ‘foo fighters’ (no, not the band)..

    Walking shoe recommendations?

    I personally don’t mind if we get entirely off topic and start talking about dolphins or something (dolphins are cool), but if we wanna keep things organized, I found a thread about going barefoot called ‘Hi I'm Jake and I don't wear shoes, ever.’

    Moments that made everything worth it?

    Does anyone else just.... Never miss people?

    I feel exactly the same as the OP. Except, I’ve noticed that I will miss people when I am unhappy or not quite feeling right. There is a direct correspondence between how sad I feel and how much I miss loved ones. If I am happy and doing my own thing, I don’t miss anyone (love them, look...

    I was under the impression that living a long life was possible, maybe not a healthy one, but I could be entirely wrong. And maybe the effects of addiction are too ravaging, and maybe the drug itself is more damaging than I realized. I’m so sorry to hear about that horrifying experience. I...

    Strange cryptid/UFO/Ghost encounters on the road?

    The only spooky experience I’ve had was sleep paralysis and I wasn’t on the road. It was exactly like being visited by a spirit and/or a daemon or something. I’ll tell the story if anyone is interested.
