Sounds like a fun trip! Who makes those panniers? My bike setup looks so loaded down compared to yours- like I'm ready for the Zombie apocalypse or something. Safe travels!!!!

Hopping a train with all your gear AND a bike?! Now that is fucking badass!! I personally believe the word “epic” is pretty overused, but imho, when you look up the word “epic” in the dictionary, there should just be that picture of your bike on the train for the definition.

Any helpful advise welcome
I'm going south to Redding or red bluff on UP line from k falls.
Should I get off in Dunsmuir/ or weed , hitching south to 36hwy or 299.
Or stay on the UP and hope it gets closer to my hwy I need to get too.
I have never ridin south past Dunsmuir so I am unfamiliar

The plan all along was wait for snow in Oregon and head south from Bend to bike parked on the coast near Arcata and start south on the 101. I've done the ride from here to there and back . Twice .
Now a part of the road taken by foot or in car. But I have yet to bike south from Arcata. Week of scattered showers as I arrive . My solar panel arrived early And is waiting at the bike. I've enjoyed the winter . Now that it has arrived enough to wanna go. Im out.
Seeking to get to bike by Monday.

36 is currently closed due to flooding; 299 is the way to go, but can be a bitch hitching out of Reddingneck. All the roads in NorCal have taken a beating from storms this week, and more are forecast through next week.

Thanks dune drifter . Cause my bike is in mckinleyville.at the end of 299.
Got some work , snow removal today so I guess hitch to Redding and buy local transit bus west on 299 outta the RABA station in Redding where the druggies just shoot in public .Only thing is there is bus the 1st and 3rd Saturday of month . And might mean I get stuck hitching from willowcreek or stuck in Redding west end of town. Still in Bend, right by the where the add end should park going south unless it hits reed market to cc and sit.
Snow is foot and half,
More where plowed by road . Up to my thigh.
I know it's very oogle of me. But I want a dpu, or gondalo

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills

    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
    $45.00 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.

    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
    $45.00 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.

Im securing a squat tonight that should be a good long term squat. Also im playing a show tonight.
Just go to Barcelona and got lost on my way to my hostel. I walked into a corner store and asked for directions, and a guy who didn’t speak any English or know anything about me pointed to where i need to go and gave me a sticker that said “Everyone hates the police!”. I’m definitely in the right place😄!
Macon for a super hot minute. Who what when where?
Finished an initial draft of a floorplan for my new van:
A lot has happened since returning to California. Just two days after returning from the road, I grew the courage to leave my abusive SO and stop hiding her abuse. I returned to my hometown in the Bay Area; I’m now going to stay housed up here until next summer as I recover from trauma and save up for my next adventure. I’ve just gotten a job offer, and will be renting a room of my own here!
I learned a lot about myself and the world on the road, but I know vagabonding is the life for me!
