    PNW

    Maybe go to Port Townsend and then down to the Olympic Rainforest and camp. You could stay at the Rainforest Hostel for like $5 or whatever you feel like paying. There are lots of good hiking trails all over if you're into that.

    Getting Free Shit...All...The...Time...

    Thanks guys glad im not the only one who thinks of these things. I've definitely had to give away food too, cuz it was more than I wanted to carry. This all reminds me of how I forgot to donate to stp this last time off the road :eek:. I'll get around to it though haha

    Getting Free Shit...All...The...Time...

    So maybe I'm talking to the wrong crowd here, but does anyone ever feel exhausted from being on the receiving end of free shit when traveling? On my way back to Wa this year I scored a Canon 40D and a pair of brand new combat boots that I later found out to be worth 200 buckaroos. That on top of...

    Anyone get taken in on the road?

    I've been taken in like twice other than couchsurfing. Mostly cuz I've turned down some offers cuz I wasn't sure about the people/have other plans. I've been taken out to eat here and there though. Sounds like you hit the mother load though congrats!

    New bike tourer in town

    Ya I guess the author and company of the ccg don't want it running wild through the streets/online, so this site respects that. I can tell you that openrailwaymap.org is kinda nifty and can tell you which rail is the mainline and where it goes. There's also a recent thread about determining the...

    New bike tourer in town

    Welcome to Squat! You seem like a well accomplished Vagabond! Goodluck on the rails, but I wouldn't bother asking people for the CCG on here. Its against the rules to ask for it, but maybe someone will give you it once you get to know each other though. Good luck and nice pics!

    Has anyone plane hopped

    There are a handful of people who have tried to hop planes by climbing up the wheels before they go up with mostly very bad results. You'd have to be a complete moron or extremely extremely desperate to do it, so obviously don't even think about it.

    What do STPers do in winter months?

    I'm gonna spend most of my time working in Tucson like I did last year and take a short trip to NOLA. I should be able to save enough money to not have to work for spring and summer. Gonna live in a cave this spring and ride trains in the summer! Fuck winter though..

    Spanging is bad?

    One day I was spanging in KC and got offered a gig to mow a lawn on a yard with a big ass hill. I took it, cuz I'd feel like a total dick sitting there with a sign across the street while other people work even though I knew I could make twice that in the same time. I enjoy work though. It feels...

    I'm new

    I've never hopped out of Denver, but I scoped it out a little and read that you can go 6 different directions from one of the yards. I think the BNSF yard. Not a problem if you don't care where you end up, but if you do care about where you're goin you might wanna find a more basic yard for your...

    I got it a couple months ago. I asked everyone what it was and no one could tell me, so i went to the Dr. And he told me what it was after like a second of looking at it. He gave me this stuff in the pic and some anti inflammatory pills. It worked great.

    The only side effect i remember was it made your piss turn bright neon green. No joke! Haha.
