This week we're experimenting with a new podcast format where we cover some travel related news, read some of our favorite travel stories, and most importantly have a discussion on various ways you can make money on the road.

The StP podcast is a weekly series discussing various topics related to underground travel and the community around the website Squat the Planet. Join us each week as we have a rotating cast of folks sharing their experiences in travel and answering your questions.

Dave said that the squat in Albany actually got shut down a few days after this article was published. The repercussions of this article really demonstrate the importance of security culture and maintaining a distance between yourself and reporters who could potentially blow your spot

Got a job lined up in the far North of New Zealand to work over winter! The plans are coming together!
Woke up to Caveman, making spears..
And so three months later—to the DAY—I crawled back to the spot and retrieved your rainfly from where you'd forgotten it. (I should burn it for all the trouble it caused...but I might keep it as a memento of a time when things between us were still good.)

One of the Lords of the Rails is coming over tonight; I'll try and talk her into an StP account...
Gotz trainz on the brainz
I just got back to LA from the Bay - it was a very busy but happy trip. Went to Mt. Diablo, went to Berkeley and the City, even met up with @beyondthepaleogender! I did Craigslist rideshare both there and back, and both rides went fucking awesome :) Gonna post up for a bit and then I will (finally) begin hitchhiking east. Also - as of yesterday, I have been modding /r/Runaway for exactly a year now! :)
Been a while since I last posted on this thing.
Being stuck in PDX for the winter sucked n I’m looking to hit the road to NorCal in May.
