Hello, all!

Name's Jacob. Currently working as a coffee roaster in Southern NH, where I grew up. Done a bit of traveling, mostly for work. Lived in Montreal briefly. Nothing too exciting.

Always been drawn to the vagabond lifestyle; likely a bit naive, but I feel I have fairly realistic expectations... All said, I'm ready to dip out and explore, and am beyond excited to learn from and participate in this community! Especially interested in hitchhiking and train hopping. Done neither, but plan to try the former this spring and, hopefully, find someone to show me the ropes of the latter not too long after!

Read a lot; Jorge Luis Borges is my favorite author. Also write a bit (mostly poetry). Sing some, too.

Anyhow, thanks for creating such a vibrant community! Looking forward to talking with you all online and, maybe eventually, in person!

Peace and safe travels!

Mostly in New Bedford, Mass when home.
Ahoi there @AnotherWayfarer . I am not too far from you, located in the Southcoast of Mass (New Bedford). I too write poetrty and am a bit naive although middle aged & having been a traveller for awhile. I am mostly housed up yet always have a bag packed. I have a wife, 14+ year old child, pets within our established domestic footprint here but also like to take short forays to recharge my batteries some. Perhaps we can link up once you are ready. I can help you learn some skills about traveling & perhaps you can give a critique of my poetry.

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
$150.00
Goal
$100.00

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
    $150.00 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.
