I've prowled around this website for a while, but this is my first contribution. I'm from a small town in Tennessee, just outside of Knoxville. My travelling experience is limited, but very few minutes go by that the idea isn't active in my noggin'. Last August I drove north to Alaska for a few months, and I plan on going again, but this time by the good nature of travelling strangers. That's why I'm here, to educate myself on getting to new places with few resources. My hitching experience has only been out of necessity when my car broke down on the Alaskan Highway, but I plan to do more of it. I'm interested in: photography, low-income gourmet cooking, the wilderness, books and all sorts of music from roscoe holcomb to blut aus nord. Anyway, I'm glad to meet yall. Send me a message if you're in my area.

Nice to meet you, too. Do you have any of your photos online? I would like to pick your brain sometime about the possible dangers in taking photos while you're wandering.

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
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    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
    $150.00 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.
