Well. Since I only have like a buck in change after the burrito i bought at the 7-11 last night after i arrived at king station. This morning i looked up food banks and homeless shelters.

I tried going to the salvation army but unfortunately they were not open.

I had a choice to make which was head to the bread of life and try to make lunch or head over to cherry street food bank before 4pm.

I decided to head to the cherry street food bank because it was a for sure thing.

All you need to do is sign your last name. And put your age.
Get in line and grab from the boxes on the tables.
They give you one can food per box and a certain amount of fruits and veggies per box.
They had mac and cheese/pasta noodles and various beans. But since i dont have anywhere to cook i didnt take any.

I Tried o get as many with easy open cans as I could because i dont have a can opener.

They are closes on the weekends.

Ill update you as i go.

You know places like 7/11 you can go up to the counter and ask if they're about to throw any heated food away? Never pay for gas station food, never. Horrible idea.

Also baby angel go get a lil can opener, you can get them for cheap cheap, and they're light at hell, fit anywhere. Also do you have any sort of heating apparatus? How are you getting around? How are you feeding yourself? Thank God you're in Seattle though, they have some AMAZING dumpsters up there to help you get some things

Look up Urban Rest Stop. The best one IMO is in Ballard. There's a few more in Seattle too.
They provide showers, laundry, etc. sometimes you have to book ahead, sometimes it's first come first serve.

They're pretty decent people. I used to go to the Ballard one for a shower and laundry. Would have to show up first thing in the morning, and sometimes they fill up and have to turn people away. But it's deifnintely worth looking into.

Holy shit, sure as fuck after 6+ hours of straight bike polo.
I am now on the road!! I spent money on the luxury of a nice ticket to Old Town San Diego, from there I will visit my godmother in East County and then hitchhike up the coast to the East Bay to visit friends and family. It’ll be in time for my 19th birthday!
The feeling of finally doing this is fucking amazing!

OK, so, my pack is a military duffle bag that is somewhat old, and I'm not sure it will hold up to traveling across the entire continent; so I'm open to suggestions on the best (?) replacement to buy....Thoughts?
