Hey I have been lurking here for a number of years, but never really posted, so heres an intro:

My name is kyle aka thewindandrain if you've ever seen that tag on highway signs or under bridges. Grew up in Kansas City. I'm pretty active on hitchingit.com, was active on digihitch for a long time, post a lot on hitchwiki.org and reddit.com/r/hitchhiking.

I've been traveling mostly nonstop since 2011, hitchhiked 79,000 miles across 50 states, 8 provinces of Canada.

I'm very easy to get along with I don't get bent out of shape or stressed easily and I don't like drama.

I used to work odd jobs for travel money, but these days I just panhandle and make a pretty comfortable living doing it.

I don't drink or do drugs much, mostly my recreational habits include hanging out around a campfire, good conversation, kayaking, hiking, hanging out at truck stops or wherever, being on the move and learning about the world.

If anyone wants to meet up, I'm going to be hanging around the lower united states all over below i40 for the next few weeks before heading up to Alaska.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$25.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $25.00 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
    $25.00 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
    $25.00 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
    $25.00 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.
