How's it going everyone. I'm 27 below the New Orleans area. My goal is eventually hitting Michigan through hopping/hitching. I've only ever seen a couple southern states, so it's all fresh wherever we head before or after. I've been wanting to travel for a while but never really put my all into it until now. The beginning of the year was rough. My mom unexpected passed in Feburary and the girl I thought I would marry ended up not working out. Ontop of that my seasonal job is about to end. Instead of taking the bad and becoming Batman, I want to explore. I have been reading on this for a while and was advised to find a mentor. Didn't have a car until 23, parents sure never had one, so I'm extremely used to traveling by foot, I've also hitched before. I'm really easygoing and would love to travel with someone and learn. Also love urbexing alot, I have lots of spots in the states I have visited. Even if I can't find a mentor, it'd be less lonely with someone else.

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.
