    Yesterdays travels Los Angeles to Slab City

    Most people hate mondays. However yesterday I took the opportunity to check out Slab City Library and the Salton Sea. I gotta say the drive was worth it! I just wish i had more time off work. Anyways, back to work!

    Seeking travel partner for car travel down the west coast, end of August

    Hey folks, I'm finally looking at the end of the tunnel here at my time in Walla Walla, Washington, so I'm starting to make plans for my trip down the west coast. My job ends at the end of August. I've built an itinerary of destinations that have been on my bucket list for quite some time, that...

    Fastest/Best Routes, Chico to Los Angeles?

    Hey folks. Well, I’m coming close to the end of my first ever hitching trip. It’s been a hell of a ride; I went up the west coast from Palm Springs through Santa Barbara, SLO, Big Sur, the Bay, Arcata, Coos Bay on the 1 and 101, then up to Portland, back down to Eugene, Roseburg, Dunsmuir, and...

    Guess I won't be anti-social

    What's up everyone? I'm John. I'm a life long "punk rocker" from LA. For some awful reason I tried it their way and made the realization that I'm just sitting here with my thumb up my ass. So decided that I may as well see what I can with my thumb up my ass. I don't have a vehicle, have no clue...

    Where do homeless people hang out in West LA?

    Like specific spots where a group of people chill all day. All I know about is "the cannon"/south side of Palisades Park in Santa Monica, and Safe Place for Youth in Venice. It's kinda lonely and boring seeing the same mofos every day.

    Flying a sign in Los Angeles

    This morning I got a talking to from Santa Monica P.D. about flying a sign at the 10 offramp. Last night I made a killing ($23) at the onramp, and it suxdix. Where can I do this? Does LAPD give a shit? Should I fly a sign tonight at the onramp anyways? I am terrified of being arrested and having...

    Los Angeles Parking Spots

    As some of you know I've been spending the last few months bouncing between Los Angeles and Slab City. The reason being that I've been working in LA as a Postmate bike messenger. (More on that in a separate thread, eventually.) As such I've been trying out various areas of the city and with each...

    How To Travel From Los Angeles To San Diego Via Public Transit

    I'm not a fan of Los Angeles. It takes forever to get anywhere, it's hard to find a place to camp, and the people there generally have a bad attitude. No offense to people in LA, maybe it's great if you know people there, but I prefer to bypass that area of the country as fast as possible...
