    Tell him that he's ABUSIVE when he drinks. Tell him if he doesn't stop drinking IMMEDIATELY you'll dump him. If he doesn't, DUMP HIM.

    Iceland / Reykjavik

    This thread might be dead, but I'll be spending a day in Reykjavik in January! I've got a 25 hour layover on the way home from the UK, and could potentially stay longer (I heard a rumor that the airline will sometimes extend your layover up to a week if you ask, no charge)! It's gonna be dark...

    Featured Anything you wanna know about living on the road in England?

    I was gonna fly into London and probably catch a megabus out (probably toward Scotland, but I'm not tryin to make my plans too solid) since they are pretty cheap.

    looking for information about oregon county fair

    I haven't been terribly impressed, though I would give it another shot if I didn't have to pay for it. I've heard a lot about how it can be /so good/ after hours if you find the right spot to camp, which I'm sure is true, but I dunno, I cetainly didn't find that spot. I've been twice, once as...

    Thoughts on heading to the UK and potentially roughing it in the autumn/winter with very little financial cushion? Flights are runnin for less than $200 in October, and I'm thinkin about taking a risk, throwing down now, and hoping I can work my ass off and save enough to have a couple hundred...

    van camping in eugene

    It's been a few years and I'm not sure if it's still chill since the tweaker situation keeps getting worse and worse, but I've parked in Glenwood at night without being bothered. Wouldn't leave my van unattended out there in most cases though. How far out of town do you wanna be?

    Where to go from here? Frustrated with finding community off the road

    In my experience isolation also breeds contempt and stress. It's healthy to be able to regularly get out and have a social life outside your project/group.

    Where to go from here? Frustrated with finding community off the road

    If we're looking at the same thing, that looks beautiful. I've heard of Auroville, but I haven't heard any firsthand reports about it. You? Germany is something that keeps coming up in conversation with friends of mine, and I think I'm sold on taking a trip there when I can afford it. I...

    Has anyone visited/worked with communities in other countries or continents maybe? Been hearing good things from friends who have recently visited Europe. I'm not limiting my scope to the US.

    Where to go from here? Frustrated with finding community off the road

    Haha, damn, you're echoing a lot of sentiments I have, and you seem to have a positive but realistic outlook. You seem cool as hell and like a really good person to have in a community space, I'm sure whatever you end up starting or contributing to will be amazing. If you pass through Eugene...

    Decent sized pack for small sized people?

    These look pretty good, and like something I might actually be able to find easily at a store to try on! Thanks!

    Decent sized pack for small sized people?

    Thanks!! This looks right up my alley, style wise. It's very similar to what I have, but looks bigger. From your experience, do you think the straps/back length would adjust to fit a very small person? Think 13yo boy. A lot of the problems I've had have to do with the straps just being too...

    Wow, thanks so much for sharing in such detail! I'm sorry it sounds like you've had a lot of unpleasant and disappointing experiences yourself, it's super cool that you've been out there making an effort to be part of something though, and it sounds like you put a lot of work into trying to...

    Decent sized pack for small sized people?

    I'm looking for recommendations for a new pack. I've been rocking a little assault pack with a bunch of shit strapped to it for most of my travels. I love it, but it's tiny and I can barely carry anything. I'd very much prefer something with plenty of separated compartments, not just a big...

    Where to go from here? Frustrated with finding community off the road

    What kind of community is it, and what kind of projects to they do? I suppose I'd define long-term as a yearish or more, but I'm flexible. A lot of cool projects I know of out there right now are on really unstable ground, and any investment is a risk. I know it's gonna be hard, and I'm ready...

    Where to go from here? Frustrated with finding community off the road

    I guess I'd like to hear stories of folks who have settled down in some type of alternative community or space long-term that has been completely fulfilling and worthwhile. I hear stories often of regrets and frustration about leaving the traveling life to rejoin "normal society" for one...

    Parking in New Orleans?

    No problem. Make sure to visit at night. Just go up Esplanade until you go under the freeway underpass. It's behind the gas station. You should be able to see the lights in the trees.

    Hitching NORTH out of Portland/Eugene (HWY 5)

    Yeah, taking the CAP bus out of Portland northbound has usually been the easiest way to go. It's only $1 to Longview, and another $1 from there to Olympia. I always meet cool kids on that bus. It only runs twice a day (earlish) if you want to go all the way to Oly from Vancouver in one day...

    Parking in New Orleans?

    I believe had some friends that parked their bus on N Peters near the river while I was there, and another bus parked on Press St and Royal (or somewhere right around there on Press), near Mardi Gras Zone and the train tracks. I don't know if anyone ever fucked with them, they never mentioned it...

    A lot actually.. The van trip I was on went to UTTER SHIT and I ended up stranded and unequipped for sleeping outdoors in the fall, so I bought my own fucking van for 400 bucks. I picked up a short term job going door-to-door to pay for the few repairs that need to be made on it. Sooo I'm...

    Actually I'll be in Portland for folklife, unfortunately.. I did end up going today and helping out with passing out food and cleaning up, and everyone was super cool. I'll go back to help out some more soon, and maybe when I'm back from Ptown I can do some cookin'.

    Hey man, I have to do work this afternoon and can't make it downtown at 2, but I can probably be there anytime after 4ish. So if you could use any help with cooking or serving after that, I'm down.

    Hm, I'll check and see if I have anything going on Sunday. I'm doing work for the family, so you never know what they expect me to do without letting me know. Naw, not right now. My college fund was all but depleted thanks to the tanking economy. Also, I don't have anything I'm passionate...
