Hi guys, I am new here and from Maine. I'm excited to have found this place. My whole life I've dreamt of traveling, particularly walking on trails long distances and train hopping. Seeing the world in an unconventional way, and I look forward to getting to know like minded people such as you! Nice to meet everyone ^.^ I have no experience whatsoever with solo travel, but I would love to be able to hit the road next summer.

just to be square up, i dunno what kind of tattoos you have or how badly your road clothes are rotted (though i generally advise against both), but unless you rubbertramp in a fairly well apportioned RV, do not think you are going to do any traveling that is going to allow you to remain as pristine as your profile post..

make some of us think things are a little spooky..

nonetheless, welcome & good luck!!

lol XD yeah I know my profile picture looks really "pristine." This was taken a while back with a friend when we were goofing off at her house. I don't know why that would make "things spooky", unless I'm misunderstanding what exactly you are referring to as spooky. However, I do understand where you're coming from. I am fully aware that traveling will make me look dirty and I'll need to be prepared and wear clothes that I don't mind getting dirty in. And I am already prepping for that. My road clothes are way more casual and travel friendly. This is one of the only pics I could find in the moment that I like the way I look. (I don't take very good photos) and this is why that pic was chosen.

Anyways, thanks for your response!

Thank you, I've already read the Train Hopping guide amongst other things, and the information is great. I look forward to reading more and getting to know others in the community.

spooky.. as in Spooks...
spies : )
infiltrators into the Land of Anarchy...

people who want to know what kind of social threats people without houses or apartments represent..

Spooks.. FB (shhhh..) 'eye' people..

they put trackers in yer backpacks & feed yer retinas into facial recognition system at fucking walmart, you know..

honestly, though..
what kind of travel you decide to do is exceedingly import..
each method has its fundamentally distinct logistical considerations..

experimentation is good, but..
make sure you know what you desire, vs. what are minimally comfortable with..

hope you travel well, sis..

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.
