Hey there I am quite new here and no one knows me so here a couple of words to my person. First of all I am no nativ english speaker so some of it might sound weird ...
I am here to exchange experiances and maybe find other similar thinking and behaving people and maybe meet up with some of you somewher in space and time.
Normaly I used to stick to the punk/hippys alternativ people from my suroundings, but after finishing school i wanted so see something from the world and i went up to norway to travel and work on organic farms, in the beginning i traveld realy ordinary by train plane and bus like normal people, but by time i went mor free ways like hitchhiking, creating wrong student cards with witch i could go on busses and ships for free and after a while i startet sleeping in the ditch /forest or what ever surounding was available. So i recognized that i do not need money at all, because i figured that dumpstering is the best way to keep me fed. after one year i returned home started studying archeology and scandinavistics, but after half a year studdying a bit but mainly goofing around with the local city punks and doing drugs i figured that studdying sucks and the horizon called my name and i grabbed my back pack and all the cash i had (2,50euro and 100 norwegian krones witch is 10 euro aprox) and went up north again, i had a mobile phone but after 3 days hitchhiking and sleeping in the ditch i lost it in the snowy winter up in norway, i could not reach my mates up there so i had to fix it somehow in the expensivest country in the world and everything got out of my hands , the next 4 months i spend the time with clinbing down vertical rocks without beeing secured run away from police steel beer and liquor ending up un totaly wrecked woodboats in storms, got stranded out on an island 2 days just with wild herbes and oysters from the water, and waking up in the forest with 20 cm snow on my sleeping bag (just to mention a few funny things) after i got home i thought of doing an apprentice ship as a boatbuilder witch i started 4 months ago and wil last for 3 years whar realy realy sucks hard, but that gave me the time to join you guys, so lets see what will come
Fred

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 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
    $0.00 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
    $0.00 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
    $0.00 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.

I hate my fucking back. A combination of bank bullshit and now a strained or sprained back had kept me held up in Pennsylvania. Have a place to stay, but I'm pissed at life trying to keep me off the road!
Fuck it, I'm getting a bottle

I'mma cut to the chase: You don't call me what I consider to be a slur or insult, and I won't call you names.
You say I should love myself and have more self-confidence. You've got it all wrong. I love myself plenty, and I know for a fact that I am capable of doing incredible things, both good and evil.
You say fake it till you make it. I'm too honest for that. Instead I will have faith in myself, and act accordingly.
These new rules for the train riding forum are ridiculous. I've been on here for 5 ish years.

I read your story last month about working in Alaska. I got a job in Naknek this summer. Definitely can get how it felt like jail. I fear it's really going to feel that way with this virus. We can't go into town. I'm not very happy about that since it will limit my exploring. Yet I really need the opportunity right now. Anymore advice is much appreciated.
