Hey everybody! I'm new here and just wanted to introduce myself and hopefully make some new friends 😊 I go by cricket, as those were my favorite bugs growing up, there were so many where I lived.

I just started traveling on my own about a year ago, and so far have gone through about 5 states. I am coming from Texas (beautiful state, gross policies) and trying to get to northern California to see the redwoods. I was rubbertramping, but after running into the law, and having my car taken (for a possession charge, so silly, I have an attorney fighting for me though) I have decided that I would much rather be leathertramping as I would like to have nothing holding me back. And since I don't have a car, I have learned so muh being out here on the streets.

Before I started traveling, I was stuck in a small town full of wealthy individuals, so I have never met anyone with the same ideals I have. Hopefully I will make some friends here that share the same values and beliefs that I hold!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful day 😇

Thank you so much! I haven't decided, maybe visit both parts lol. I'm more of a wanderer than a planner, so I may just end up visiting all over that region tbh.
That's a good way to be, if you never have a schedule you can't ever be late. A word of caution though be careful up in the sierras around winter, they close off a lot of the roads and mountain passes, you could easily find yourself marooned up there.

Total amount
$10.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $10.00 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
    $10.00 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 this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $10.00 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
    $10.00 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.
