Hey, new to STP. I been out of the game for awhile now - about 5 years, really. But I think it's time to get off my ever widening ass and head back west. Maybe make it to the ocean this time.

Health problems brought me home last time I wandered off. Only made it about three states over, which ain't too bad on foot.

Before that, I couch surfed up the east coast and camped out a few places. I walk just about everywhere anymore. Hate cars. Just not a fan.

But I lost my last crappy service job, and this looks like as good a place for a break as any. Think I'll head west in spring. Walk and hitch it as far as I can. No way in hell am I crossing mountains in winter though.

Thanks. I'm prepping for the trip now. Getting my gear together and finishing off my loose ends. I think I'll head south first, winter in Florida. I've got a couple friends down there, crash with them for a few weeks. Bounce around. Tampa is nice in December, I hear.
