interesting.. how many people have vehicles, & who wants to go?

2 vehicles leaving from the bay, 10-20, to jambo..

there's definitely a fuel pot on hand.. about 100 gallons..

folks coming from the north should figure on meeting up, folks further south can be intercepted..

the main point is that we should be able to get at least 4 committed vehicles down there..

anybody going from the bay area, we should be able to do at least 1 tank, if you have 3 folks or more, & *anybody* that shows up will get at least a few gallons to start the ride down..

I've been lusting over this plan since y'all threw it out.

First, I thought I'd try to passenger along, but I just got offered a cheap truck while staying up here. My ride is leaving south in a few days, but I may see if I can cram a bunch of odd jobs together and drive there myself with you crazy fucks.

Got a crazy CL gig that just ended: got paid hourly to load a U-Haul, then got a flat rate to drive it to Palm Springs, with a plane ticket back to town.

In 36 grueling hours, I earned my baby. Now, I just keep scrapping for work to get it registered--not gonna both with insurance--and whatever, tune it up, buy a cap, then I'm south!

My short career of tramping so far has been leather-bound til' now. Crazy excited.

@Viking_Adventurer : Where ya stand with yer deal?

I'm looking for a ride from the SF bay and have pitch on gas. Would love to catch a seat on this convoy. Message me if one is still available.

Update: Doesn't look like this truck will be road-ready in time.

May opt to leave it here with a mechanic friend who needs a vehicle for a while. He'll get her tip-top 'til I return.

So, barring a miraculous combo of odd jobs coming along, I'll be hitching to the Bay and catching a seat with y'all.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $25.00 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
    $25.00 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
    $25.00 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
    $25.00 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.

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.
