I thought I would say hi. Ive been kinda nomadic for the past 4 years. I just finished walking 1000 miles on the pct and now I'm off trail and sitting in my car with no money, no job, and no plan. No problem! I thought I might pick up a dirty kid or 2 and make some adventure.
 
We sell all kinds of other stuff in our Etsy store!

i can't help but think that saying "i might pick up a dirty kid or two and make some adventure" has a slighty creepy undertone...however i will assume you have the best of intentions...and that perhaps you are a "dirty kid" as well.

That's what a lot of traveler folk and rainbow folk endearingly call themselves "dirty kid" yes I consider myself one. Although most dirty kids are grown adults. Ha!

ive always liked the term traveling kids.and i still call friends that even know we are adults.but still kids at heart...forever.i've heard the term dirty kids in the last few years but if its a positive then heck yeah...your dirty and you like travelling...or perhaps its a statement against society because being dirty kind of is...in this clean ass world.your traveling and get on a subway and people freak out and start spraying perfume.yuck!its a war of smells.but fuck em you got a right to smell like you want wherever you want.the term oogle is apperently negative..thats what we used to call teenagers who hung out at the mall and dressed up like punks...posers basically.all the train kids i met in my early days were solid for the most part.there started being more shit heads and i noticed people became weary to bring travellers home after some of the shit storms came through...

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
    $120.00 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.
