My names Liz but you can call me lizZzard ha!
Been a lurker here for a bit and have to say I really enjoy this platform! I’ve done a bit of hitchhiking and currently live in my van out here in beautiful Oregon!
If anyone comes out this way and needs ideas of roads to sleep on, NF or...

Forests Closed - LA Times
All National Forests in CA are currently closed to to an un-fucking-precidented fire season.
I'm a Firefighter, and this shit is terrifying. DO NOT HAVE FIRES in the woods right now. I cant stress that enough.
The country is *literally*...
(INTRO) --- I posted a thread in the trainhopping forum last week and mentioned my experience hiking the Pacific Crest Trail introducing me to this community of vagabonds, travelers, wanderers, and free spirits. Several hours later I got a response from a fellow member recommending me to...
Hiya, I'm Emmet, a 20 year old newbie who plans to travel in, oh, 6 months (?) My only travel experience is a middle school orchestra trip to Cali so you might say I'm seasoned as fuck lol. I plan to explore the west coast for a while and then high tail it east to meet up with a couple of close...
First off. I'm so glad this website exists. Thank you so much to those who put it together and keep it running. This was an awesome resource for my partner and I two years ago when we hitchhiked and walked the Appalachian trail for a bit, now we're going to be hitting the road again...
Was out traveling on the west coast with my boyfriend (Kyle) and his partner (Ryan) at the beginning of the month, and this is one of the creepier stories from that trip.
We decided to drive through the night from San Fransisco to Portland, so we fixed up the back of the SUV into a lil sleepin...
About me: Hello, names Mike, been homeless for a few months now, result of exhausting resources trying to get my veteran benefits AND now I can't find anywhere to leave my pup Roshi while I work so can't get a job until recently. It hasn't got bad yet for me, just feels like camping. Have had a...
I plan on going about this way in June and I was wondering if this would be doable for a first time hitchhiker. I would plan on stopping in SLC, and Boise before going to Portland. I've also heard the legal status of hitchhiking isn't good especially in Boise. What did you experience? Thanks!
folks have mentioned the oregon county fair here and there (and i had an ex that told me a bit about it) but i thought i'd pitch it to the StP audience and see if anyone knows more information about this event? is this something travelers go to? should i add it to our events list? I've heard...
This is for my best friend who went missing in Hood River and who's body washed up on the Colombia River in April of '17. She was 27 years old, an amazing clarinet player and learning how to play the accordion. She was born and raised in Seattle and was the first person I met when I...
I'm planning on going this winter. Portland, Seattle, Olympia, maybe even Vancouver, BC.
~ What are some good youth drop in resources? I need someplace LGBT friendly, that doesn't require ID, and which doesn't feel like fucking juvenile hall; someplace like Safe Place for Youth in Los Angeles...
Of course nothing pops up for old threads for here ha. Wintering over on the west coast first time ever. Renting a spot to crash with my pops and sister. Mostly sleep in my tent. Indoors just ain't all me. But considering it rains a lot such as wildly, now, it's nice to have a place to cook...
I want to get to Portland and I am in Boulder right now and I was thinking going to Cheyenne and hitch on I-80 W. Is there a better way to get there? Have you done this route before? Let me know and thanks!
I made this profile a year or so ago, and I never actually ended up going anywhere. Now, I'm finally doing it. I've got the opportunity, I'm getting my car fixed up, and its summer.
I'm here in the introduction section in order to hopefully build friendships with other dwellers and people who...
The Other Koala
so I'll be driving a van for my father to this town or vicinity in mid April then on a wide open ended foot walkabout looking for anyone's personal fav towns in OR and things to check out. I'll be on the tramp for long term camping spots in the big wilderness parks, other travelers lady tramps...
Hey Everyone Name is SuneeShines.
I have been reading STP for a few months because travel and adventure is just really interesting to me. I don't really have any qualms with working my dead end jobs (as long as I can start in the Afternoon). I don't have a wanderlust that can only be...
Anyone stuck or stagnant in the state of Oregon(as well as SW Washington) will find the following website handy:
It is a very comprehensive database of every type of support you could imagine for folks in need. In fact, it is so jam-packed, it might take a while to narrow down your relevant...
Hey duders, my name is Siobhan (good luck pronouncin'). I've done a bit of hitchin the past few years, around the Pacific northwest and the midwest, but now I just moved into my very own car. I intend to head north towards Oregon (I'm in Santa Cruz right meowmeow), and then I think I might head...
