As you know cycling is hungry work and it is a constant battle to keep your energy levels up. I can sometimes eat my couscous/beans/corn and be HUNGRIER afterwards. It's ridiculous. My neighbor in golden gate park was a vet bicycle cowboy and he told me if i started to fly a sign like the one about people would leave me their leftovers on my bicycle. So i tried it out, and while i was coasting down the west coast on highway 1 i had cars pull over waving me to stop to give me an apple, even a handful of granola, but these boys up here gave me shit tons of oatmeal, ramen noodles, and granola bars, enough that i had to take the sign down because i could not carry any more food. Just thought I'd share. This is the first sign i've ever 'flew' and i figure its kinda like skipping a step, making your bicycle the trashcan instead of digging in the trashcan for peoples leftovers. lol

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.
