Hello all. My name is Chance, and I am from Fairbanks Alaska. I moved down to Coeur d' Alene, ID in late 2012, and have lived here ever since. Since the age of 6 years old, I have always wanted to live a van life (am 20/21 right now). Over the years, I have developed an anti-vehicle rhetoric, and have decided that bike camping/touring/living suits me better, as it does not require gas, insurance, title, registration, etc. I am currently going to College, and graduate in Spring of 21' (considering going for another semester to get an AA in History as a bonus). In 2018, I adopted a minimalist lifestyle. This has (in some form or another) stuck with me ever since. I am an avid reader, and the biggest thing holding me back from travel are my books. I (at present) have 211 books, although this will get up to 228 once my final packages come in from Ebay/Amazon. I bought Matt's book, and love it. My goal is to read all my books by the time I get my second degree in the fall/winter of 21'. After that, I will hit the road (assuming it all works out). I will take some books with me, but leave 98 percent of them behind (only ones about wilderness survival/travel (like matt's book, or the hobo handbook) will I take with me). I currently have two panniers, and a 180 pound capacity rear bike rack (has not come in, even though its been 1 month+ since I ordered it). Now, I am someone who likes sex toys, and Im sure those will weigh me down too (lol). I apologize about my intro not being so well structured/organized, but I have never been the greatest at introductions. I hope my intro is to your liking, and I look forward to meeting everyone (both online, and potentially offline should our paths ever meet)! Happy trails!
We sell all kinds of other stuff in our Etsy store!

Good luck to you in your travels and education. You got a lot of goals. What are you studying?

Im studying General Studdies (AA), and once I complete that in Spring of 21', I will be going for my AA in History (this will take just a semester to graduate from, as I only require 5 more classes to get that degree after I complete my Gen degree).

hey man thanks for picking up the book! i grew up in CDA, small world!
I was quite surprised to see "Post Falls" in your book! Very happy with my purchase. You certainly make the "I would take this with me if needed (travel, evacuation,etc.)" cut!

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.
