    Hitching in Europe post COVID

    I’ve been planning to set out hitching in Europe from the UK for a while. What’s the situation with hitching in Europe at the moment with COVID? Are people willing to pick up hitchhikers? What are your experiences at the moment?

    Website Updates I finally put in a passport application.

    So, after over a decade of putting if off, I finally got off my ass and put in my application for a US passport. It's always just been one of those things where I'm like, "agh, $140 bucks is a lot of money, I'll do it later," and well, you know how it is, weeks stretch into months, months to...

    Question What are some good advice for spanging/ flagging a sign during thirdwave of covid?

    Hello fellow people I apolguise if this sounds like a similar post I've posted in the previous past, so I understand if deleted, it's not related to my social anxiety. It's about being more succesful at panhandling and making more profile while standing for hours trying to flag a sign. Well...

    How to flag a sign/panhandle, get basic essentials during covid and being social phobic?

    I'm currently homeless, I'm trying to hit up local resources for food, hygeine items, bus tickets, laundry money, socks, etc, but some of these places across town, so i have resorted to panhandling to make money for other basic essentials. Omg, I barely made anything yesterday :( is there...

    Covid Vaccination Info

    Okay ya'll, I wanted to make this thread since knowledge is power and I'd rather ya be able to find the vaccine if you want to. I am not making this thread to debate the existence of the vaccine, nor do I care to dive into an anti-vaxxer discussion. This is a place to share resources for people...

    hypocrisy of the hateful ('money for Covid' edition)

    things might be different where you are (i hope they're better); the attitudes, overheard snippets, and actual conversations I've experienced are thus: many humans who have had the big bad angry stance that everyone has the same opportunities and derp derp bootstraps something something lazy...

    Question Bike Tour & Camping during Covid - SE US

    Covid got my old cycling & mechanic skill set back into action. I'm in a good place to prepare for a bike tour, so this isn't so much about the HOW or the WHERE, but the WHY. I'm in Miami and I have a place to stay until late January or early February. I've been giving serious consideration to...

    Winter, Covid and the Flu. A third wave is coming.

    I have no fondness for being a downer but this shit is real and getting more serious by the day. Covid cases are up across the US and are hitting rural areas hard now too. Winter will drive people indoors and Covid fatigue will cause many to relax preventative measures. Cases this week over...

    Do people sell art on the streets anymore? Would I have any luck after or even during covid?

    I’m not much of a musician yet but I’m still getting there. I am one hell of an artist and I’ve always seen people on the street offering to do portraits and caricatures for money, is that still a good way to make money or nah? What would I need to bring with me if I’m on my hobo adventures...

    Lost my job due to COVID. Using this opportunity to drift.

    Since losing my job due to COVID I’ve been obsessed with drifting (traveling without a destination in mind). I bought a one way ticket from nyc to Kansas City for $25!? After here I either want to travel west or down to south to New Orleans. I’d be down to meet up people that are not...

    Good street vending cities/locations during Covid

    I’m dying to move out of an unhealthy living situation at the moment. The plan is to buy a van or other large enough vehicle, convert it, and move into it full-time. I’m an artist, and so I’m hoping to support myself on the road by selling my art on the streets. I’m wondering what cities on the...

    How will covid and economic crisis effect travel culture long term? Discuss!

    I've just barely got started on the road and now I'm stuck holes up until covid ends, and I'm worried that things won't be the same after and I already missed the best window. I'm new to this so please jump in, how does everyone think things will change in the next few years?

    Covid hitchhiking: what's it like now???

    So, I know this question was posted back in March, but I wonder what it's like now that we're in August? I was stuck in Honduras when all the shit went down back in March. I got back to the U.S. in May and I am still figuring out what post-covid U.S. really looks like... I've been stuck in...

    Video Lets lynch the landlord man

    An interesting and horrifying insight into how COVID could impact homelessness in the US by causing a mass wave of evictions. The evils of rent and housing costs might come to a head here in the next few months. Probably not. But maybe. Gotta love John Oliver:
