I've always felt rather out of place in this world. The things that most people concern themselves with; getting a high-paying career, house, family, car, etc. never seemed like a worthwhile goal to me. The only time when life has ever really made much sense to me was when I was traveling, whether by foot, car or freight.

I tried to do what is expected of everyone, I put forth my best effort. All in vain. I put myself in great debt to go to college. I graduated and received a degree which has done nothing for me. I fell in love. I got engaged. I had my heart torn out. I have now lost my job and in a matter of days will be losing my apartment. But at least I have a sleeping bag, warm clothes, tent, fishing pole, durable pack, guitar, laptop and a phone. I don't know where I will be headed but there has to be a better place than the place I am in and the places I have been.

Anyway, this seems like a good site for me to be a part of.

You have lost so many things, but are trading it for freedom, brother.

May you find and spread happiness along the way:)

Welcome to the website. I can understand not fitting in. I have not felt like I fit in anywhere for over a decade or more.

Adventure is a core human expiereince, good luck with your travels.

God I just want to be an ass and write "Then you haven't tried hard enough to fit in." But I won't. Welcome to STP. You're, in a way, lucky to have your housie life falling apart. I made the unfortunate mistake of falling in love and now find myself in a prison of my own make. Kept here by no guard but myself.

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
    $70.75 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
    $70.75 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
    $70.75 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.

I hate my fucking back. A combination of bank bullshit and now a strained or sprained back had kept me held up in Pennsylvania. Have a place to stay, but I'm pissed at life trying to keep me off the road!

I'mma cut to the chase: You don't call me what I consider to be a slur or insult, and I won't call you names.
You say I should love myself and have more self-confidence. You've got it all wrong. I love myself plenty, and I know for a fact that I am capable of doing incredible things, both good and evil.
You say fake it till you make it. I'm too honest for that. Instead I will have faith in myself, and act accordingly.
These new rules for the train riding forum are ridiculous. I've been on here for 5 ish years.

I read your story last month about working in Alaska. I got a job in Naknek this summer. Definitely can get how it felt like jail. I fear it's really going to feel that way with this virus. We can't go into town. I'm not very happy about that since it will limit my exploring. Yet I really need the opportunity right now. Anymore advice is much appreciated.
Anyone been to Thailand or know anything about Thailand? Going in September and have absolutely no plans yet, open to suggestions!
