Hello Everyone,

I'm not a traveller curently however I have travelled for work in the past. I enjoyed every second of it. I came home one day when I was living at home still and told my parents I got a job. They were thrilled and asked me where I replied Edmonton. Needless to say they were shocked, even more so when I told them I need to leave in a few days. I went there worked two weeks and met some guys that were going to Saskatchewan. I got on the same job as them and drove across Canada with them. Spent a year in Saskatchewan living out of a suitcase with plenty of drunken nights and debauchery. Travelled to Manitoba for work as well.

I've been stable here for a while, however, there is some big life changes heading my way so that may change things drastically.

I've been getting things together to prepare to hit the road. I am a bit torn though because I've met the woman of my dreams and my punk rock queen. I want a life with her. We've talked about road trips and short term travelling together.

We shall see what the future brings!

Any gear reccomendations?

Dude, we can recommend gear for days.... but gear requires a use. And each different use will require different gear... each person will be different and so will there needs. So without having a clue as to what you mean when you say travel or road trips that happens to be a verry huge spectrum of possibilities therefore leaving an even bigger spectrum of gear options.... so with that said, giving us a clue as to how you want to get from point A. to point B. And what kind of life quality you intend on keeping will determine gear recommendations. Like food is free in dumpsters all day.... eat with your hands.... shower at truck stops, sleep on the ground..... bring only what you need to survive right now everything els is too much....

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
$0.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 of $50.00
    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
    $0.00 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 his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $0.00 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
    $0.00 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.

I hosted Lilith/@slaapkaamers for 3 nights in Nov 19.
She was an exemplary guest. Good w both conversing and alone time. Trustworthy, didnt steal anything and I felt very comfortable leaving her alone at my place. She didnt stink and not a junky.
Lilith is a legit traveller, she's a sweet, artistic chick w lots of good and interesting ideas to chat about. A pleasure to host. If she's in your neck of the woods you should help her out. 😉
I have a pretty good new squat in sfe but im leaving soon if anyone wants the keys lmk.
The peavine is gorgeous, I highly recommend that route.
Fucking winter snuck up this year
Damn It! I've been thinking and debating about applying for a position as an Amtrash locomotive engineer! They have openings for Salt Lake City, UT and St. Cloud, MN. I know I got to go through training but I'll be on call 24/7? There goes my sex life and night time weekend parties! Screw that, I'll play with my train set-No Pun=No Joke!
Made back up into Cincy for the weekend. Gonna chill with some homies before we head west for the winter..
