Hello, i know a little about camping and trains but i have never train hoppped or hitch hiked yet. Im interested in taking off this summer and traveling
around the west coast . WA , OR, CA area. I have a lot of interests based around growing food, permaculture , living more closely with nature , and learning about edible plants and fungus that i can forage for extra food.. Seeking comrades to enjoy the journey with. Cheers

My goal is not to only eat what i forage. I just want to learn to recognize more edible plants and get some practice in while i travel. I know im going to have to get food other ways also.

I guess my post sounds a little confusing. Some day i would like to be able to forage for all my food. But im sure it will take years of practice and even then it will all depend on where im at if there is a lot of food around or not. Time of year etc. I just want to practice the skill for now while i travel, the best way for me to learn something is doing it instead of reading about it in a book or on the internet.

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
$40.00
Goal
$100.00

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 his 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.
