Just wanted to ask if anyone remembers Digihitch? That site gave me multitudes of knowledge before I even knew HOW to hitchhike. (Like the idea for a re-usable sign, whoda thunk that putting saran wrap over cardboard would change my life?)

The other reason for the post is to show my gratitude towards @Matt Derrick for the incredible monster he has created. You are changing people lives with the creation of this site. This site has taken what others have tried to do, and turned it into one of the most useful tools out there to provide people with a safe place to find information before they write that first sign, thumb down that first ride, catch that first train, hop on that bike, or fuel up that new van. (Shit, even cast off that first boat, apparently. Didnt even know that was a thing.....)

Not to mention the networking and community building. I have met random ass people out there and been like, "Ey, you on Stp?" "Shit ya, you?" and now I am able to keep in touch with them. FOREVER.....Well, until one of us dies.

Anywho. If this is a repost, just delete it. Rock the fuck on, people.

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
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    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
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    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
    $105.00 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.
