Coroplast is what those political signs are made of. Its a very lightweight sturdy material.

Ive been wanting to make one of these for years.

Should be able to find the blueprints/instructions on that website [although I remember it costing money]

Seems like you need a good workspace and the right tools and parts and a way to get the coroplast to where youre going to be building it.

Just thought I would bring this up as an interesting way to travel.


Its human powered but you can probably hook a battery to it too to make it more road worthy.
It is VERY good for the environment and cheap to make, presumably.

I found out about this because I was very against driving gas powered cars and polluting the environment any more than it already is.

This contraption gives you a storage area, a way to get out of the rain, and stay warmer, and can carry more than one person if you make it a two seater, from what I remember.

I live for discoveries of multi-use things that will help the environment and promote freedom, and this is one of the greatest finds I have come across on the internet.

Its a bicycle with a shell. I prefer a bicycle without a shell and simply carry or attach a tent. Doesn't draw attention and can camp anywhere and get around much more efficiently. Plus, a tent will have some airflow and not be so claustrophobic and cheaper.

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
    $70.75 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
    $70.75 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
    $70.75 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 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.
Last week i took some trains i ain't rode in a while. Sparks->elko->green river->cheyenne->denver->amarillo->belen
I did some really important tweaking of the navigation menu on StP today. It should be significantly easier for mobile users to get around :)
Anyone in Chicago?!? Just rolled into town, next stop Minneapolis
