To the Squatians (and Matt),

Hello! I'm Madison. I grew up in the small hay farming town of Ellensburg in central Washington, United States. I actually met Matt Derrick (the apparent founder of Squat the Planet) because he came into the gas station I've been working at for the past year and he was wearing a Dungeons & Dragons hat, which I had to compliment. Further discussion of the trip I'm leaving for in a couple weeks and our mutual interest in ESL and travel lead to exchanging info so here I am, doing the suggested introduction.

In less than two weeks I'm flying to Thailand to take a TEFL course in Chiang Mai Sept. 23rd to Oct. 18th with the hope of using the funds from a part time online teaching job to fund endless nomadic travel. A long history and a lot of time had lead me here, and if this website could help with my travels.. Then let's do this!

If you would like to meet me in my travels, share information, or swap stories please hit me up! Oooor if you'd just like to follow my travels on social platforms...

Yooo Chiang Mai rocks! Enjoy! Chok Dee Guesthouse is the best for single rooms for 180/200baht per night (and can get slight discount for longer term stays) chill vibes, good wifi, nature in the court yard and cats and a dog on premise. Mohawk Bar is great for punk music and real cool travelers and locals and expats (tell them Julie says hi).

Curious how the TEFL course goes and how you go with finding work. I heard from English teachers over there that doing in person teaching in and around Hanoi, Vietnam was really great money.

    More Info

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
$45.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $45.00 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
    $45.00 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
    $45.00 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
    $45.00 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.

Latest Status Updates

Macon for a super hot minute. Who what when where?
Finished an initial draft of a floorplan for my new van:
A lot has happened since returning to California. Just two days after returning from the road, I grew the courage to leave my abusive SO and stop hiding her abuse. I returned to my hometown in the Bay Area; I’m now going to stay housed up here until next summer as I recover from trauma and save up for my next adventure. I’ve just gotten a job offer, and will be renting a room of my own here!
I learned a lot about myself and the world on the road, but I know vagabonding is the life for me!
I never did complete an update here, did I?
Well, I rubbertramped all across the country, back from Boston with a fellow moderator from R&V. We drove from there to Las Vegas over the course of a month! I saw 4 national parks, 30 states, and crossed over 6000+ miles. I came back to Los Angeles on June 15th, having achieved my goal of hitchhiking the entire country, and was on the road for over two months.
3 weeks of CDL training starting Monday. Im so excited. Living in semi is an upgrade from living in the van, especially since your getting paid for it! Hells yea!!!
A list of all the magic stores in the U.S. would be a sick feature on stp. Imagine you get off the train desperately in need of smokes and a slam, but you got ran off every corner... Dont worry stp knows exactly where you can get pall malls and some steelies with those foodies you picked up in the last town.
