    What's good in the Dominican Republic?

    Howdy Weirdos! Some dear friends and I just bought 1-way tickets to the Dominican Republic. Any recommendations for specific spots to check out? Where's the epic waterfalls and unparalleled hiking spots?

    RIP RAGS aka Chris Stone of Portland, OR

    Thought I should put the news out for those who haven't heard already. Rags, aka Chris Stone, caught the last westbound earlier this month in a car accident in Austin, TX. His dog, Spree, has been relocated to his folks. Heard there's a memorial in Portland on April 7th for those who are...

    Forest Security - Game Cameras

    Whenever I'm setting up a new rural base of operations in the forest, whether it be camping / squatting / or working,I always make it a point to know what types of critter folk are out there lurking around at night. So I've taken to the habit of placing game cameras around my neck of the woods...

    Why Stop?

    The asphalt interstates will always be there, and until Capitalism collapses under its own weight, Union Pacific will always operate everywhere indefinitely like the well oiled clockwork machine that is has turned our continental landscape into. My point being, ditching your possessions...

    Abandoned Oahu

    Just spent two weeks in Oahu and Maui. It was paradise of course. Nothing sucked. Everything was awesome. Thought I should recommend a few awesome abandoned spots I found on the North Shore of Oahu, about fifteen minutes East of Hale'Iwa. There's the obvious burned out children's convalescent...

    Ahoy! Salutations from Oakland.

    I've been posting on here long enough, but haven't bothered to informally introduce myself. I'm Nick. I make stuff. I do things. I get places. For the last few years, I've divided the bulk of my traveling time primarily up and down the west coast, frequently in between Portland and the Bay...

    DIY Documentaries / No Budget Films

    I think a lot have already been aforementioned, and have running links elsewhere on the site, but I figured it might be worthwhile to start a running thread. There's a seemingly endless supply of liberal/wing-nutty/corporate/high production value documentaries out there - but the legit low/no...

    West Coast Festival Circuit

    Assuming you can keep your shit together during a huge party, there's good money to be made working at various festivals across the West Coast. I've had damn good luck working at Van's Warp Tour. Made $250 in a single day, plus free beer, food and random merch. Yes - the festival itself is lame...

    Confessions of a Former Oogle: or rather, How I learned to Ride Freight....and Fail.

    Confessions of a Former Oogle: Or rather, How I learned to Ride Freight, and Fail. After two and a half years, we finally parted ways. She was beautiful, we loved each other and had endured so much together, but it had become blatantly obvious that the end of that road had been long since...

    Anyone still Read Books?

    I've yet to run across any recommended reading threads on StP. I usually travel with a good novel, a local native plants guide if possible, and of course, that good old C.C. Off the top of my head: --1984, George Orwell (fucking classic) --Endgame, Derrick Jensen --Slaughterhouse Five, Kurt...

    Australia Cherry Harvest?

    Some globally seasoned hobo friends of mine have highly recommended escaping the North American Winter by working the cherry harvest in Australia. They say it pays about $300 a day, runs December thru January, and you need a legit work visa. Anybody got any useful tips? Either regarding the...

    Fuck my life – if there’s anything I can’t stand, it’s Schwilly Drainbow Hippies. I swear, there’s an underground army of these wingnut retards floating around the country, completely fucked on meth, periodically emerging to suck the life out of communities. You can often find the Schwilly...

    Terror Tour, Part 3

    Dawn – somewhere near the town of Mojave. We’d covered more than a few hundred miles overnight and were now high-balling through the vacant desert. I was truly thankful to sleep through the hideous wasteland of much of the central valley. However, sleep is only an approximation when riding...

    Terror Tour, Part 2

    Munching down on trash tacos and shooting the shit with various Mexican workers from the Port, we learned a Dept Homeland Security background check was required just to walk into the main office. We also learned it was a mere two mile walk back to the departure yard. Reeling from the...
