Hello STP (1 Viewer)


Apr 6, 2017
Hello all you beautiful peeps. Connie here. Actually, Conrad - but my students call me Connie. I am a South African currently teaching in Saudi. Unfortunately, I have been trapped by responsibility and kids and have to watch enviously as the rest of you squat the planet. But - I have 2 months off in July and August and will leave the desert and fly to the USA to see how real people live. At first I might seem a little old for drifting, squatting, hitchhiking, etc - but once you meet me you will realise I have the body of a 21 year old and the mind of a child - lol. A woman I once met described me as an 'archer' - I shoot arrows and travel in that general direction. This is probably true. I do have some experience in drifting, but it has been a good six years since I last went walkabout. So, anyway - I will be in the States in July. At that stage, I will get onto this forum and see if any of you are up for adventure. Stay safe out there! :)
We sell all kinds of other stuff in our Etsy store!

Welcome to STP! Sounds like you've been doing some exploring on here - but if you haven't hit it yet - look at the travel stories and urban exploration. Both my favorites. Lots of good info and posts that make you want to go there. :) Your upcoming trip to the US in July sounds interesting - do keep us informed as to where you land and plan to go - who knows you may be able to meet up with some of us!

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
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    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
    $90.00 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
    $90.00 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.
