Down the South Eastern corner of the beach is a Public Toilet, Changing room and Shower. Good space for freedom camping. The road is treating me well so far.

dope, looks like Isla Grande de Chiloe.

do you swim in that? or is it way too cold?
You can defenitely swim here in the summer and on warm days. Theres people out sailing and boating now. Its getting a bit colder now but all the beaches around here fill up with people when its warm.
I want to go for a swim but dont have the time to deal with salty wet clothes right now.

Theres none along the Beachfront, just pohutukawa trees. I do spy a couple Nikaus on the hill but they are amongst houses so cant get a good photo of those. There doesn't seem to be any others around. Where I plan on getting tomorrow there's heaps so I'll snap a couple photos when I see some!

Haven't stayed there for any length of time but passed through a couple times. Why do you ask?
Was interested to see what ppl had to share about it, any helpful info about the place really, (yes i know there's google) or about traveling there from auckland. But it's all good.

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 his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $75.75 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
    $75.75 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 hate my fucking back. A combination of bank bullshit and now a strained or sprained back had kept me held up in Pennsylvania. Have a place to stay, but I'm pissed at life trying to keep me off the road!

I'mma cut to the chase: You don't call me what I consider to be a slur or insult, and I won't call you names.
You say I should love myself and have more self-confidence. You've got it all wrong. I love myself plenty, and I know for a fact that I am capable of doing incredible things, both good and evil.
You say fake it till you make it. I'm too honest for that. Instead I will have faith in myself, and act accordingly.
These new rules for the train riding forum are ridiculous. I've been on here for 5 ish years.

I read your story last month about working in Alaska. I got a job in Naknek this summer. Definitely can get how it felt like jail. I fear it's really going to feel that way with this virus. We can't go into town. I'm not very happy about that since it will limit my exploring. Yet I really need the opportunity right now. Anymore advice is much appreciated.
Anyone been to Thailand or know anything about Thailand? Going in September and have absolutely no plans yet, open to suggestions!
Cincy, somehow is full of kids last year or so, like it.
