The name's Woodworm, and I am a NB homeless kid out of Minnesota planning on leaving the state.
I've been sleeping on some couches, even a spare bed or two, so luckily I never had to face winter outside, but I've been wanting to hit the road and see where life takes me now that I'm older. Been on my own since 16 and fortunately never been in the system. The reason for my lack of a more conventional lifestyle is probably caused by a lot of things, but I can't see myself being part of the masses either way.
I mostly read in my spare time, but I love watching the world as it continues on throughout the day, just seeing what happens. That, and sketching. Always enjoyed art.
While I do consider myself to be apolitical, I am an anarchist at heart and favor leftist views. Agnostic, but very spiritual.
I'm thinking of heading south, possibly Nevada or California, but I don't know where to start. While I do plan on going solo, the idea of joining a more experienced traveler or two sounds nice as well.
I hope to make some friends on the site and learn all that I can.
Cheers.

Make sure to complete your profile, since that will help others determine if they'll get along with you enough to travel with :)

Use the search!

Lastly, summer is coming up so NV might be really hot, although the coast of California is nice almost year-around. are you planning on hitchhiking?

Can do.
I've been contemplating hitchhiking, since I've done it before, but never for long distances, usually to the next town or so. I've never been bothered by the heat, so I'm not too worried.

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
$100.00
Goal
$100.00

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 this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    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
    $100.00 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.
