I'm debating whether or not I should do seasonal work so I can travel this summer. The only con to that is I won't get much hitchhiking experience (I guess I could hitch there but that's not what I really want.) I really want to attempt to hitchhike because I've put it off for so long and I just want to fuck it and try it. The cons to this is I live in Florida and I've heard it's a terrible place to hitchhike. I am happy to hear from anyone's experience as far as getting out of Florida. I am also wondering about the safety of hitching in the south (Georgia, South & North Carolina I feel better about than Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama.) Also, as far as weather, is it too late to hitch to North Carolina if I was planning on going in September or October? I just really don't want to keep working to travel. I have around $200 and I think that's a decent amount to bring for a short hitching trip. Let me know if I'm wrong. Thank you.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 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
    $0.00 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
    $0.00 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
    $0.00 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.
