I have also talked to Crusty P (the actual titled artist) and they only add "the white boxes" when playing with guests. Yancey was apparently just a guest at this time, and they wish to no longer be affiliated because at the time Yancey could not even deal with AFAB folx without kreepin'
Posted something on Facebook today warning people, since I saw this asshole actively online for the first time in years. I recently re-integrated back into facebook, which is why I was not aware he was still active on public social media platforms until last night. Either way, here we go!! He...
Both are preferred. Personally, at my best (small tool wise) I was carrying two different multi tools, and two different knives. All of the above for their own reasons. Was this overkill? To some maybe, but I had my reasons. If finances weren't an issue, I would have had one multi-tool, two...
Walking my dog, is like steering a horse. Having both of my hands occupied most of the time while travelling on foot (water jug in other) i've been able to train with sensitivity to which direction I pull. Sometimes more abruptly, but she's caught on extremely well. If I have her leash in my...
Yaknow, I've never liked wearing things on my wrists.. Personally, i've always preferred to shy away from screen time.. So, keeping "time" can kinda fuck off. The only time it ever mattered was when I was heavily in the system. With a job, and school, and personal plans with others. On the road...
Wow.. I say, why not! Adjusting to the circumstances makes sense. I think for those that have the capability to engage may definitely enjoy themselves. Unfortunately I most likely wont be able to tune in, because I'll be on the road.. but who knows.
I would appreciate if some people would bring knives with them that are easy to whittle with.
I can provide everything else, such as snand paper, handles, tool heads, wedges.
After the workshop is over, and people have some ready to use tools, I'd be happy to allow anyone who...
Hammer, and axe heads are not "broken". They are simply without a handle. Two separate pieces, always. Until wedged together.
Nope, not too much effort for me. I'll be in a vehicle, so it's not like I'll be lugging a bunch of tool heads in my pack for all y'all.
I'm literally talking maybe, 5...
So, I've been volleying around the idea of hosting a workshop of rehandling basic tools. I.e. hammers and such of that nature.
Thinkin' I'll try to grab a few heads at a flea market or something. And grab a few handles from whatever hardware store that has close enough sizes.
Here's a question for those that have hopped trains with a dog long-term.
I know that many railroad workers are prone to hearing loss.. and I know for a fact, that I definitely have grown to like riding freight with ear plugs in. So, why wouldn't I try the same for my pooch?
Out of all of the...
I've been storing a basic glassblowing setup for the last 3.5 years, and I haven't been able to use it almost at all since I began travelling..
This entails a gently used GTT Lynx single flame torch, with a graphite attachment. Has two quick connect hoses for oxygen, and propane. A...
I've crossed paths with this individual once in San Diego almost 4 years ago..
This warning has been going around for atleast the last three years. Sad to hear he's still out doing the same shit. What a sicko.
It's a matter of trying to create a "safe space" for people of those identifying factors. LGBTQ youth have no other designated areas to feel this way. Legally, at least- because they are minors. Or, were recently, and have not been able to get involved in gay bars, or whatever is most...
Hello, and welcome!
I always appreciate a green thumb.. luckily I've been able to hone in on my skills in regards to that through more travel! I'm sure it will be the same for you. Understanding train yards, and whatnot can be pretty technical. Though, don't get too intimidated. I've met plenty...
Yeah, I met a kid named Gravy with an Amtrack tattoo under his eye. I believe he had a dog, and blonde hair. Real smiley. I ran into him twice within the last couple months. Last I saw him was in NOLA, about a month ago.
Damn!!! Was really a joy to watch. Naturally I watched the second half as well. Fucking rad documentation. Y'all seem like fun characters!! Hell of a first route to take your friend on freight! Thanks for sharing your experience!
I think there is great power in being able to name yourself. Most people never know what it's like, to have a damn choice of title. Or people that respect it.
But here, I'll give you this. I decided to use dumpsternavel as a screen name when I began dumpster diving regularly in Salt Lake City...
Go check out Wooden Shoe Books on South Street, in Philly. Unfortunately based on the current social climate, with the 'rona and all, I'm not sure it will be open.. but, last time I came threw they were having a queer comedy night there for free, and I had a great a time.
You are a great writer! Thank you for sharing, and taking the time to upload some much needed, wholesome content these days. I'm feeling rather lucky that I have a friend to stay with through most of this frantic climate that society is going through at the moment.. I'm glad you are doing will...
So willing to through down on this.
Currently been in Tucson, AZ. Rent is cheap here, and there are some awesome community resources, and a real active punk/diy/anarchist scene.
Maybe within a stone throw of Tucson would be worth looking into for land?
Definitely a hub for travellers, as well.
Wool cloaks are the way to go.
I've seen many since familiarizing myself with WA, and the people that dwell here.
My partner has a nice wool blanket he throws around his shoulders and secures with a giant safety pin near his upper chest.
I've seen others scored at Goodwill outlet for hella cheap.
Ha, oh dating apps..
Truthfully, they have always had a tendency to repulse me. Not necessarily grindr, because that wasn't the kind of site that peaked my interest. As a female bodied queerdo that has mainly had a very hard time finding femme, or female bodied partners- this, is what drove me...
Ha, well... sorta.
Housed for the winter until May.
Been building from nothing off-grid. And truthfully, It is just taking way too much investment for me to justify spending more than half of the year here.. Need to ride more freight trains, and continue to meet more people. Small town rainy...
Hell yeah @Engineer J Lupo !
Crime pays but Botany Doesn't makes me fucking smile, and take a load off.
You know him??
Seriously, that dude's train of thought is the shit. Ramblin' about riding freight trains, while identifying plants in between with the whole "SQUIRREL!" dog mentality, almost.
I refused to hit the road alone, until I had a dog.
Having my 60 lb beast made hitch-hiking with boobs, feel alot more comfortable.
Cons are: riding public transportation (at times), getting turned down from rides while hitchhiking (which I'd rather, actually), riding freight trains, less...
@feralautistic damn!! Those are some pretty ornate pieces!
Fucking rad, dude.
My girlfriend does major badass handpokes too* she straight up went to like.. a "new age" type art festival/gathering thing that she had to pay like..
$150 to be a vendor at, as well as get boarded.
She drew up some...
Met a guy in UT 4 or so years ago that got thrown in jail riding from OR to UT for some weed in his bag. They stopped the bus after leaving OR and checked everyone, apparently.
I've ridden greyhound a few times since then, and the driver always announces a possible search for marijuana...
Ah, puppets are so cool.
Performance art is something I admire, and always try to incorporate into my daily life.
I've been made aware of one travelling puppet/band/performance troupe called Bread & Puppet that are based out of Vermont. They do tour along the eastern part of the US. I was able...
I always travel with pair of (usually) combat boots, and a pair of waterproof sandles.
I.e. rolled with a pair of vegan docs, that lasted me one solid year of full-time travel. Still was able to salvage some of the "pho"? Leather from the boots themselves when the soles were wrecked. Was...
