Currently residing in Utah but native from Colorado, hoping to learn from the wisdom of others here. My actual first experience with homelessness had been at around 13 when my mother parted from my father forcing us both into the streets oddly enough. We one of the first weeks in winter out on the street, bloody cold and we couldn't find shelter given no one would take a father with a teenage daughter as most shelters were men's only or women and young children only. It was awhile but a Catholic Charity took us both in while my father waited for section 8 housing. Either way it was an interesting experience, there was an air of some freedom to it even if aspects of weather and where to be or go were a concern.

Though it's been a long while since then, have been on and off the road. Sometimes settling as a hermit, sometimes wandering. I generally keep to myself but am happy to get to know members here. Main point of interest is picking up more skills, sometimes working for room and board.

Pleasure to meet you Cheese, I'll be sure to ask! Hell I even have a question right now. I'm more used to bumming rides in Colorado but I managed to get one here a year or so ago. What's the status for hitchhiking out of Utah these days? Any experience train hopping?

Hitching in far and few in between. Most peeps around here won't pick ya up, but if your on a backwoods country road you got a better chance. Trains, I've hopped one, but I prefer the leathertramp way, I like to take my time and see mother nature at its most vulnerable.

Indeed, one's legs often are reliable even if it means slowing down and stopping to smell the roses. Hiked any trails about here? I've been to Antelope Island before, place was beautiful. Bison abounded though my BF didn't want to go down to the waters because he complained about the little clear shrimp prawn things and sand being so fine it's hard to get out of stuff.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$0.00
Goal
$100.00

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 this 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.
