Been a few years since I have traveled and it's time I start back again (full time) I have 2 weeks before me and my friend are kicked out of the apartment we rent. My friends going to his parents and I'm hiting the road. I decided to make a profile to ask if anything has changed on the road since 2016? My other question is I bought a backpack that's the only thing I needed. But I know if you have anything nice such as a backpack it's likely somebody will try or roll you. How can I make the thing look used?

Use it.

It don't take long for shit to look dingy when you're traveling.
Rub some dirt on it. File the edges to fray them. Then leave it in the sun mayne to fade the color.

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
$10.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $10.00 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
    $10.00 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
    $10.00 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
    $10.00 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.
