Hello all.


Oct 12, 2009
Hello, my name is Stope. I'm a highschooler in Oklahoma. I live with a pretty wealthy family, and I'm not a big fan of my my current life. Now I'm approaching a time when I am expected to go to a big university and get a "respectable" job. I don't really know what I'm going to do, but squatting sounds exactly like the lifestyle I would like. I just thought I'd let you guys know a little about me.

i grew up in OK as well. look, take advantage of the money you have. sock some away; make ur folks think ur into hiking or whatever and tailor the funds towards purchasing stuff. as to hating how they spend their money, i kinda feel that's pretty crass. they earned it. and having parents wanting you to do good in life isn't bad either. that's a problems in a lot of posts; kids (maybe you maybe not) cling onto this idea that it's cool to hate money and the system and shit. so, i guess if you'd feel better being poor (and i can tell ya poor in OK is NOT FUCKING FUN) maybe you could head on over to Big Mac when u turn 18?

look, i can think of a lot of reasons why life sucks other than coming from a rich family. i have a kid on the way myself and rode trains longer than you've been alive so i have seen both sides. i'd just recommend how to APPLY all that horrible money to a way you'd feel better about.

and if you really feel that bad about all the money you can make a donation (in care of me) to the Church of the Malt Liquor!

welcome aboard and good luck!

I would suggest basically what IBRRHOBO is saying and try to funnel some of your families money into something you feel is worthwhile. For example, go to school for agriculture, or better yet, perma-culture. Then take some family money, but some land and start a punk farm or something. Not all of use have the resources to do this, but there's a lot of us out there who'd be stoked to help out.

I am also accepting donations to the "Beegod Santana's start the biggest fucking pot farm on the planet" organization.

Howdy, Stope. Definitely consider IBRRHOBO's advice about the gear. That's the one thing my parent's help me out with if I ever head home. They won't give me ca$h, but they'll swing me by REI for little things. Hah. Safe journeys.

everybody here is right!
my motovation is to show those housed and jobbed the errors of there lives
every person that stops living as sociaty wants them to and starts trampin is a saved soul
sound as bad as a christian huh
jobs dont last. houses rot and fall down. familys corupt. wemen cheat and destroy men and vice versa (men turn good wemen into housewives weak and meek.
death is 100% guarenteed. the seas roil. the lands shake. trees grow. the universe provides what you need and little more. aspire for what you want and chain your self to what you own.
quit your job and eat out of garbage cans and you will know your self, the true self.
im done. thats my preach for the day

college can be great IF you go for something you like.

All I can do is speak from my own experience and I'm glad I took time off after h.s. to travel and explore life, but I'm back on college now and loving that also.

Life is a lot longer than you think, take deep breaths and remember you're probably going to change you're mind day after day and that's totally alright. What you love to do now might be something you love to forget you ever did 10 yrs from now.

Got a new bicycle today! I feel so much better
Hitched from Ft. Collins, CO to Laramie, WY in three rides and an hour and a half. Today’s a good day.
Ahh. Camping out next to the Interstate in the NM desert. With Cinnabons, a giant Coke, and $20 kicked down to me today. I got 4 rides which got me 100 miles. And they were all amazing people... one guy gave me a business card which was about spreading love and that was so fucking positive. Then I got picked up by a really old Mexican couple. I am still so homesick, yet so happy and exhilarated
Reacquainting myself with STP after a stupid long time. Bare with me as I post in the wrong places and suck at pretty much everything here
Looks like my departure is pencilled for the 29th of April. Later then I wanted but still gives me a week of hitching to get to a place to work for the winter and a bit more time to pack and sell stuff.
Back on the grind of commercial fishing despite several years while being on a hiatus, pretending it was retirement. [everything is relevant, nothing is absolute.]
The recent post looking for a road dog in NYC, reminded me of the time I tried to convince @croc that hopping a turnstile in the subway constituted catching out of Manhattan....He didn't buy it....
AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO ALL MY FELLOW TRAVELERS: Please stop telling me about your bowel movements, thank you.
Beautiful couple days for the Atlantic Coast Line
Ah, nothing beats a night’s rest in the desert of New Mexico. I saw an amazing view of Albuquerque last night. Now I gotta finish packing up the tent and get on with hitchhiking to Texas!
