Howdy howdy all! Name is Coyote.

I had an account here years back, but hell if I can remember the name (RIP braincells). Wasn't active much anyway.

Used to travel a fair bit, locally, around central FL (Trucky/Tavelsized), Fell into the rat race, settled down, got chewed up and spat out. I love some of the roots I've laid down over the years, but as I get older, I realize I absolutely do NOT want to spend the rest if my life in Florida.

My feet are getting itchy again. If nothing else, I want to see another state one more time, even if I do feel pulled back. Hoping to meet some decent folks who can make that trip a bit more interesting, wherever and whenever it happens.

Rubber tramping is my preferred means of travel. Bad knees and back makes any other way difficult (partly why I settled down).

So, yeah... that's me, I guess.

Hey what's good! I'm also trying to get out of Florida, preferably through rubber tramping. I haven't gotten a vehicle yet, but what kind do you have/use?
Seems like everyone in their right mind is trying to get out of Florida. I've got nothing at the moment as far as a vehicle, besides my bike, but I'm hoping to have a van or an old station wagon by the end of summer. Every time I have cash to get something, the deals disappear.

Hey I'm also trying to get out of Florida lol.

I'm not in a hurry I came to Miami for the winter to chill and ride bikes... but I don't want to be here in the summer so I'm trying to get out by April or May.

I’m in Fort Lauderdale at a half way (tryna do the sober thing for a minute) and then hopefully save up for a somewhat functional van by the end of the summer and head up the east coast. Wanna do trains but I got hit by a car a minute ago and now everything hurts real bad. Hit me up if any of y’all wanna kick it in fort laudy

I'm in an extremely similar situation. The settling down in FL to find I'm not wanting to sit here forever. I'm headed West and also prefer to rubber tramp. I haven't gone out in about ten years, but it's the only thing that seems right. Are you still wanting to leave?

Total amount

Goal

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $10.00 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
    $10.00 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 this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $10.00 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
    $10.00 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.
