Huh. Either Ewtweeka has changed a lot, or we were in different parts of town. DO NOT stay in Eureka. Go any distance north or South, eat at the soup kitchen, hit up the Army Navy store, but DON'T try to stay the night there.

Hella tweaker homebums, VERY sketchy drug related shit up there.

I'm not going to recommend anywhere in particular because:

A: Humbolt is so blown up it is ridulous.


B: There are SO many other threads on this website about NorCal that you can find with the "Search" feature.

I mean.. No it's pretty sketchy I guess but it's all perspective. Would I stay there for a month? Probably not. A couple of days? Sure not really worried about it.

If you aren't familiar with living outdoors in a very wet/cold environment I would recommend waiting several months before coming up. It's gonna be miserable right now. Spending all day huddled inside a library to keep warm/dry gets kind of old after a couple days.

If you find yourself in Seattle, I know in the U-district the churches do a free feed called Teen Feed every night. It's been over a decade since I was homeless there but they used to serve amazing meals. Not sure if any of the youth-shelters are still going but there used to be at least a few good ones. There's the Orion youth center on Yale Ave, but they'll probably ask for ID. good luck

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
    $60.00 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
    $60.00 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
    $60.00 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.
