I haven't seen as many other travelers rocking army coveralls as i thought i would. Is there a reason for this? I'm pretty green, solo thumber that hasn't been on the road very long, but i picked up a coverall at a flea market for $25 and I've since tossed most of my other clothing. I might be overdoing the army look, with army coveralls and an ALICE pack, but it's what I could scrounge up before I left Philly. Anyone have thoughts?

As long as you don't go around posing as a military vet you'll probably be fine.

The olive drab Army coveralls aren't too bad. The camouflage ones, especially the digitals tend to draw attention. I prefer the "grey man" approach when traveling, wearing clothes that don't stand out. Hell, in some cities wearing an Alice rucksack by itself tends to get unwelcome attention from police. Those old coveralls should last you awhile though.

The green hat in your pic might make it seem confusing. I know what you mean though, I carried a giant duffle bag I got from an army surplus store. It was so dope and useful that I could care less.

You can really get them anywhere even Wally's. Anywhere that sells work type clothing like dickies carhart etc.
hmm maybe bc it's florida stuff like that is less common here? every walmart I've been to in florida, at most, just had these tacky overalls that were way too frumpy. BUT I found two pairs at a local-ish flea market today !!!

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $20.00 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
    $20.00 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
    $20.00 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
    $20.00 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.
