Welcome to the site! Do you have any travel experience? When are you looking to head out? Do you have a destination? Inquiring minds want to know!

:3 I've traveled down the coast, from Olympia to Portland by hitch-hiking, and I've done a lot of little trips on the west side of Washington. I would love to hitch to California! I'm planning on quitting my job and selling all my things and hitting the road, hopefully at the end of January next year. I'm putting my ear to ground now, because I've never done something quite like this before. I want to live a life unburdened by rules and authority, and it seems like my attachment to houses and stuff is just keeping me from living my dream. So, that's what I'm all about! I'd love advice, travel destinations, places to camp/dumspter dive/squat, and travel companions!

I've been up and down the coast many times! Stayed in Olympia for about a month. Slept behind an Ace store and everyday after 5pm id walk over to the back of a bagel shop and grab day old bagels they bagged up and put in the garbage. Did great flying a sign in tumwater..
Anyways.. seems like you wont be out until winters over. Not a bad idea..
But remember
unless one is able to live fully in the present, the future is a hoax.
You can't live at all, unless you can live fully now

Hey, thanks! And it is soooo tempting to drop all of my shit and hit the road right now! I really wanna go to Slab City for the meet-up, but I gotta get rid of these student loans.... they will weigh me down on my travels.

Amtrak crew change. Hiding from the bull
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.
