I've always known I've wanted to do this, but in march I finally started. Met a girl, week later we decided to take what we originally planned to be a hitching trip to cali. Got another friend on board and thankfully drove, given that coronavirus really hit a few weeks later. As soon as I got back I broke my lease, and I've been building a van out ever since. I've never felt anything like being in the road, I dont think I'll ever be satisfied living a "normal" life again. Urban exploring is keeping my adventure bug satiated till I get out again, thankfully I live in a good city for it. The people I met on the road where my favorite part, hope to see some of you all out there. I'm planning on living like this for at least 5 years to maybe a decade

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$70.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $70.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $70.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $70.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
