I've started traveling regularly back when I was twenty, how it started was because it was the only solution I found (or believed to be a solution) to the problem of Me. It didn't solve any problems but I've gained a solution for compensating one (criminalistic activities) for this lifestyle, which technically, could present similar opportunities. At right at twenty years now, I have resorted to such criminalistic activities that I started out so young doing. But it wasn't out of unsaturated greed but vastly out of necessity and couldn't find an alternative at the time{s}. During all these years and experiences I've always had a love for books and those rare times that I would come across an old school that had a story to tell. With this I've acquired a need to weave a story of my own, mostly a documentary-type story based on my own experiences but recently I've found that telling a fictional story and having to think sometimes several chapters ahead to provide an interesting but consistent story line has been my thoughts to the point I'd stir in my bed for several hours, if not, all night trying to weave and reweave a storyline. And that's what I started here with the link 🔗 provided below. Below is a basic outline of what to expect with the story without giving it away. Based on fictional events but outlining what I know with traveling I'm trying my abilities with a Suspense Mini-Series for easy listening.

Nice. I've always wanted to write a futuristic, dystopian, freight tale of fiction.. Ala Mad Max style. But I'm definitely no writer.

I'll have to give this a listen when I get the time.

I've posted a few of my real life adventures on this board, and I've got several more I could post, but they are not fictionalized. I do enjoy reading other's adventures or travel stories, which is why I have an account here.

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
    $85.75 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
    $85.75 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!
Fuck it, I'm getting a bottle

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!
