    I was down in ACNJ on Wed and considered meeting up with you for lunch while you were in Philly. I ended up riding the dirty dog from AC to NYC then chinatown bus back up to Boston. I was looking out the window at the train yards around Newark/Bergen while reminiscing about past adventures there.

    Potential Squat-able Land Areas on the US/MEX border.

    I have friends from San Antonio who have camped on hundreds of acres of land in Terlingua for decades. Not a bad idea but not really for what I imagine. The remoteness of boondock camping in places like Terlingua almost exclusively requires owning a vehicle and camper maybe a 4wd/atvs & being...

    Potential Squat-able Land Areas on the US/MEX border.

    I have found two small parcels of Mexican land located on the US side of the Rio Grande. The land seems to be routinely & potentially traversed by the USPB as it has a border road that runs parallel to the River Google Maps - https://goo.gl/maps/fH8k8ETHJ9oiLAzi9 What I do not see is the cross...

    The balancing of life,

    Sup STPeeps? Its been awhile since I have had the energy, time or desire to post here. As with any connection to a community; people grow, evolve, stray & return. While I am no traveller purist who has ever advocated for ones continuous aimless wandering, I think that there are times in all of...

    Ebike touring anyone?

    Now most cyclist purists hate the idea of long distance bike touring via an ebike. Since this website is about stretching the possibilities of travel & enlightenment I doubt we will have too many who are against it. I personally do not have the budget for an ebike but am seriously considering...

    Against automation against UBI

    Automation seems to be an inevitable byproduct of technological evolution. I am all for socialism but bet that UBI will be administered by the same greedy elites that ensure the poor stay poor. We have all known families that recieved cash assistance, public housing, free healthcare and food...

    Burying your gear

    In this context of digging a temporary cache is just unnecessary. Most stores do not mind your pack being taken through the store or if they have some sort of policy if in the ghetto somewhere, just leave it up front. Most everyone does not want the dirty underwear & socks or a smelly sleeping...

    Seeking sober/recovering road dawgs to travel with.

    For the record I am seeking fellow sober & recovering people who are actively living a life of self improvement. My definition of sober is not just a temporary thing like someone abstaining for a weekend or in certain circumstances. I see sobriety & recovery as a lifelong pursuit. I dont have a...

    @Anagor That new age traveller definition is interesting and accurate all though I had never read that before. In the US few unintentionally spell with 2 L's unless they know either of these nuances or suck at spelling.

    How to get stronger to carry bag?

    Yeah so I forgot about the nuances of tramp as a rubbertramp lives in a vehicle. A leathertramp walks. The others should be self explanatory but a Traveller with 2 ls is an Irish ethnic minority of traveling gypsys that exist in the EU and US. A Traveler could actually identify any traveling...

    So it looks like I could not connect with a fellow recovering & experienced traveler this time around. I am unsure how/when the trip is gonna start but most likely as I am trying to line up a rideshare or get up dough for BOS-NYC chinatown bus & a NYC-ATL megabus $25 first. I am heading out in...

    How do I delete my account?

    I think there are way too many inactive accounts on STP & for all we know this user has 5 already. I wish more people would actually delete their inactive accounts instead of making duplicate & or triplicate accounts.

    How to get stronger to carry bag?

    The other thing to consider with military packs is that they are not built for comfort. Sure alice packs come in various sizes now but rarely is the weight evenly distributed even with a frame. Most military style packs are not exactly designed to be worn on a petite female torso either. Most...

    How to get stronger to carry bag?

    I wouldnt actually be removing items as that would be counterproductive. I now ergonomics plays a part in how & where loads are distributed. Perhaps its not the contents & the weight but more so the design of the pack & where the weight gets distributed. Your height may also be a factor in this...

    Resources For Trans Folks On The Road?

    Could you not have a friend/family member get your prescription & mail it out to you. This is a common dilemma & practice among travelers. I routinely pick up scripts for family members (even narcotics), if its a controlled substance I gotta show ID but surprisingly the person prescribed the...

    Dude steals millions of dollars of towers, gets away with it

    Its the sheer audacity of the whole thing that I applaud as It takes hutzpah to try a play like this. Few have the guts to try to beat them at their own game & even fewer csh in but its a hell of a story. I personally know someone who took 85 houses by adverse possession & rented them out. He...

    Alcoholics Anonymous

    Well for some of us who are recovering addicts & alcoholics; the idea of using any mind altering substance to escape reality could quantify as not being sober/clean depending how one defines it. I can see all points & respect the way that others choose. I dont define who is a drunk & or an...

    Considering the nomad lifestyle

    I never let theology get in the way of my spirituality. I never let AA get in the way of my recovery either. Most times I achieve a sort of equanimity with everything kinda being in harmony. If I go to too many meetings it gets off & if I don't go too enough the same thing. My mad hybrid...
