I'm in Iowa looking for company. I am very effective panhandling and also hit the food pantries or dumpster dive. I don't really have any route planned or anything, but I do want to find mushrooms. I see people who are active on the board in Ohio and the ovoids are popping in the east from PA down to GA, but I am conflicted because I imagine that there are tons of cubes in the south and I could ride the Mississippi down to MO and AR which are beautiful country and then go east to GA. Anyway, hit me up.

I'm planning on heading to Kentucky in the next few months, I'm stockpiling gear up until I start getting disability to supplement my costs on my month/s long trips. and down south will be my first, it's going to be on foot for me, I don't know what kind of transport, or gear you have, but I'm planning on packing enough for 2 if you want to meet me in Ohio and we can walk South together until I hit the Bowling Green, Kentucky area.

I'd love someone to accompany me who's had experience living on the street in case things go South, and I feel like we could share some of our experiences to help ease the pain of traveling alone.

I kind of wanted to get over by PA. I am riding a bike with a few bags and a tent on it. I ride most of the way. Every time I catch a flat, someone offers me a ride. One time, like magic, I had a puncture flat and could hear the air wiz, wiz, wiz out and a guy was stopping to ask if I needed a ride. He didn't even know I had a flat. He took me 30 miles to the next town in Arkansas. I've taken a couple other rides. One in a truck from Houston, TX to Denver, CO and one just another short jump last week in Iowa in a car. I am actually down to push my bike to travel with someone traveling the same way as me, but we would be limited to rides from trucks because the bike takes up the back seat of a car. I dress like a cyclist, but I am not really a Type A personality. Maybe more than some, but I not a yuppie.

My pussy hurts, but I don't think it is a UTI or a yeast infection. What should I do?

The correct answer was, "Don't stop." I am in St. Paul, MN looking for companions.

I've gone Janesville, WI > Dubuque, IA > Cedar Falls, IA > Marshalltown, IA > Des Moines, IA.

I did some volunteer work at the Bike Collective and greased a couple kids bikes. Then, I saw a free show, Lake Street Dive, who were actually very good. I sat with some blond sisters. I was choppin it up with the younger one before her older attached sister got there. She was really good looking, but she appeared to be on some kind of weight loss program and she is on the wrong track. Anyway, they were drinking and getting buzzed and that girl got a little moist over some guy with money and was afraid I might smell her so we parted ways. I rode around a little bit, I did find a bike punk chick down there that I will mail at her home address.

Des Moines, IA > Marshalltown, IA > Waterloo, IA > Dubuque, IA > La Cross, WI > St. Paul MN

I am making awesome time. I think I was taking advantage of some of the special thermals that form in river valleys. 71mi in 4hr 10 min @ 17.5mph. There were parts of that where I was averaging more like 18.5mph! I am trying to get some work here painting. I need to get a phone and I will take a picture of my bike.

Iowa sucks for panhandling! Ive been arrested for nothing twice and the tweekers are dangerous! I recommend south dakota for panhandling. The police dont arrest you and the people are way nicer! i guess its the last frontier! :)

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 his 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.
