I am now in Santa fe new Mexico. Took me about 4 days to get here with some lucky rides. Best advice is to stay cool and not sacrifice any of your center or inner peace trying to get a ride as doing so attracts scumbags. Also looking into their eyes and seeing any hint of psychopathic game playing ego stroking bullshit- don't get in.
I'm also trying to make it there on the 40 starting today if possible. Ive driven it and been driven after paying money but have never hitched it. As far as hitching in the desert goes I went out to slab city a few yrs ago and hitched with a partner (lady) and that was about 100 or so miles of nothing but desert. As long as its a busy highway it should be alright. I'm sticking to 40... I heard the 10 sucks for hitching which I've found to be true at least as far as inland California is concerned.
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.
Buy Matt a Beer
$75.00 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.
Feed Matt a Burrito
$90.00 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.
Finance the Shopping Cart
$90.00 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.
