I learned of this site some time in early 2011 when I met Matt in the slabs. It's taken me this long to get here. Great job, Matt.

I've been stationary in western mass for a little over a year now. It's getting to be that time again. I'm not specifically looking for anything at the moment, but who knows.

Welcome to the site! So you've been to the Slabs eh? That's probably my favorite place in the southwest by far. So how do you like to get around? Do you hop? Hitch? What are some of your favorite places?

I lived in the slabs for ~2 years. Went back for a few weeks in early 2015..
I hitch, rubbertramp, ride the dirty dog.. would love to hop but I'm in no rush to get my ass killed doing it with just anyone and knowledgeable hoppers that I trust aren't terribly easy to come by or connect with.

I got abandoned in Glenwood Springs, CO last year and fell in love with the place. Definitely my favorite. Slab city hot springs at the crack of dawn is right up there, too.. along with Vashon, WA. Spent some time in Tempe, Eastern NC, and SLC..no real reason to recommend either as far as I see.

I've been toying with the boatpunk idea for a while.. problem is; I don't eat seafood. That probably puts a significant damper in your freedom. Growing your own food on a boat would be badass, though.

I think we had a thread talking about sail boat gardens awhile back. It sounds do able but yeah, not being able to eat seafood would definitely make boat living difficult. Me personally, I get extremely seasick on boats so as much as I am enamored with the idea of boat punking around the world it's probably not going to happen for me. Oh well.
I spent a little time in Glenwood Springs back in 2011. Only a few days so I didn't get the chance to really explore the place, I'll have to go back and do that.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $7.77 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
    $7.77 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
    $7.77 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
    $7.77 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.
