Hi all, my name is Troubie and I'm a former west coast car camper. Currently I'm stuck in Sacramento on my way to a college degree. Hoping to gain some wisdom from everybody here and learn about different places and ways to travel before heading back out there. I pretty much stuck to Cali, Oregon, and Nevada, but as much as I love the west, my goal is to see and experience as much of the US as possible. Looking forward to everyone's stories and advice.

Well I can't say I enjoy how hot it gets here. I swear it's gotten hotter just in the last couple years too. I spent some time in Santa Cruz a few years ago - they get the most perfect weather imo.

Ironically the coldest winter I ever spent was in Vegas. It actually snowed and it was literally just biting bitter ass cold. Like the air hurt my skin. Who knew? Thank god for the weeklys down there.

I love most parts of NorCal, but while downtown Sac is becoming a little more modern, the rest if it is suburban hell. Not really my cup of tea!

Yeah I've lived in this area most of my life other than time I've traveled and my military service. Sacramento is by the the worse capital of all the state capitals I've seen.

Grew up in the foothills in the Tahoe side, I guess I got very, very, very lucky with that. Was 100-109 in the sun yesterday in Folsom. So yeah, global warming is a thing.

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
    $60.00 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 his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $60.00 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
    $60.00 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.
