I've made a slight change to the ride board area today; from now on users will be required to fill in their starting point and destination to create a new thread:

this data will appear at the top of the first post in that thread:

This should make it a little more clear where members are trying to get to and from, and force those to state things they might forget, like where they are currently at :)

this is part of the 'custom fields' feature of our forum software. i'm looking forward to bringing more custom fields to various parts of the forum in the near future.

There are two traveler schools of thought: grab the pack and go, and extensive preparatory research....You can guess which one I'm buried in, at the moment....

So I had a bunch of free Metrolink tickets, so yesterday first I took Coaster from San Diego to Oceanside, then used them to go all the way from Oceanside to Simi Valley (covering 150 miles in a day). I decided to stay with my SO again a couple of days as I came down pretty sick with cold and also need to buy some gear for the record breaking cold in CA. Soon enough I’ll head to Ventura and hitch from there!
Just over a month and a half until I plan to hit the road here in New Zealand. Figuring out what I need to store and what I need to sell. Anyone thats currently travelling got an Instagram? Looking to follow some fellow misfits in the mean time!
