hey guys! lame story time... ive been physically and mentally abused all of my life. my pops, all my mates, it's fucked, im fucked. im done with this life, and i need something more fulfilling. i did the homeless thing on and off for about 2 yrs when i was a teenager. always stayed in philly. realizing now at the age of 30 that i should've left a long time ago. i gotta scratch this itch, i gotta get out, i gotta fucking try it. it's not failing that scares me, it's a fear of not living. im in philly, gunna leave in about a month, gathering up all the info i can. looking to meet someone to help me with my 1st time. maybe meet up before hand, in philly, chill at a show, see if we mesh. FRIENDS. i need FRIENDS. i can't fucking stress that enough man... FRIENDS. lol. so, i play the drums when there's a set around, im not that great but i can hold a beat, and i suck at washboard and guitar. thinking i might bring my washboard out, id love to play music with someone... if anything i can at least wash my clothes, haha. yeah, i go to shows often, and i drink and smoke often. tips, tricks, philly freaks, hmu!

Slab City would be a good place to visit I think. I also think you might find some of what you're looking for there.

I lived in West Philly back in the day, I would guess that it's still a decent place to meet other travelers.

Let people know where you're trying to go in the road dogs section and I'm sure you'll find some good folks to travel with.

Slab City will be too hot by the time she gets on the road. It's already getting too hot. Slabs is a great place, but generally in the cold months. Also, if you're not prepared you could potentially die. Or at the very least go hungry.

Get out there!
I'm sure you will feel fulfilled in ways you've been deprived. Being on the move really helps me not wither in my mental health. One of the main reasons I hit the road.
It's too easy to feel as though you're rotting inside of four walls in a stagnant place, especially when trying to combat depression.
There's good folks everywhere, and beautiful land. I'd love to try and play some jamz wit yeuh.
Tryin' to get a washboard myself.

Keep your chin up.
Glad you've made the decision to hit the road!!
Definitely try headin' west~

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.
