Day 2 at my first hop out was a Saturday. The morning was very quiet and i had no idea when my ride would come. Just in case i was there all weekend, I needed to make a supply run.
The nearest commercial area was directly across the yard and through a humble residential pocket. It also saved me from walking through the bougie hood that flanked me from all other directions.
Made it across with no problem. On my way back, a yard worker drove past me into the yard. At that point, I was still off property, but it was clear where I was going.
As I entered the yard I saw him waiting in his truck. So I came in through some bushes and hid in this pile of concrete where I could see his truck.

I figured I would wait him out while i cracked some long-awaited beer. He didn't budge by the time I finished one, so I doubled back off property toward some unnamed pond.
As I hoped, the path around the pond brought me far enough out of the way to re-enter the yard out of view.
On my way around the pond, however, ...this happened:

I'm diggin' the palms in the background: Acoelorrhaphe wrightii - Paurotis palms - gotta be Flodda. Speaking of palms, here's an advisory note for all rubber-tramps - be careful where you park in hurricane country!

LOVE IT!!! Love my gnomes! There is a house down the street that has their front yard dressed up in a magical kind of way. They change it every year - with little trinkets and objects hidden here and there. But the focal point is the "party" going on in the front. There's a table and chairs and mis matched barbie and ken dolls. Last year had an army joe with a barbie slung across his shoulders. Miniature cans of "beer" on the table and flung off to the side. Always an entertainment to walk by it!

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    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
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    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
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    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
    $100.00 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.

Looking to travel soon in about a month any suggestions??
Texas is full of things that can kill me and I don't think that's great.
NOT SO FAST on heading to Chicago. I can tell it's a rough place to start over. I applied for another job in Mpls, and see how that goes in 2 weeks. If they take their time, like I don't have my own, bye. But, I'm going to give them a chance.

You ever find your road dawg? I just had mine bail on me before we even left and I'm still going, but I'm not really looking forward to being solo again. Did it before and it just kinda sucked. I can try to meet you wherever you'd want. I'm in the middle of illinois right now. Hmu if you're interested and we can chat and get to know each other before we decide if we should meet up.✌
