hello everyone! happy to be on board (1 Viewer)


Aug 12, 2020

my name is nick, i graduated college with a philosophy degree about two years ago and am currently stuck in an office working 40 hours/week in eastern pennsylvania. i've traveled through the US on a few road trips, gone camping at some great places, and had the opportunity to travel in europe for a brief period. i feel stuck (i bet you hear that a lot) working a monotonous office job, and will likely end up taking a few weeks to hitchhike, or if i'm lucky, find someone that could help me catch a train out for the first time.

i love reading, playing music, and the works of the beat generation are really what inspired me to want to get into traveling while spending as little money as possible. if the pandemic ever ceases in our country i'd like to hitchhike, but am likely going to try to find someone here that would take a newbie on a train trip sometime in the future. my favorite thing is just meeting new people, seeing new things, having more experiences in all aspects of life

hope everyone is safe and healthy

Total amount

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $40.00 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
    $40.00 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
    $40.00 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
    $40.00 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.
