Was told an intro post helps. Im a 26 year old punk kid from philly, started traveling 5 years ago. I settled down in Pittsburgh about a year ago but my boyfriend recently passed away and im looking to travel again. Prefer freight, open to the possibility of rubber tramping. Experienced in busking (i play guitar), flying signs, jugging, spanging. Have a dog who might tag along, might stay at my mom's house. He grew up on the road but really likes house life. Im looking for a road dog, preferably another nb or female but whatever. As long as they're experienced with train hopping. I lost my ccg a while ago and don't feel comfortable bringing a greenhorn on the road. Anyway old or new drop a line and say hi.

Curious about this. As I can play guitar somewhat alright but I can't play guitar and sing. I can't sing without a guitar, and I can't even really answer simple yes or no questions while playing guitar without fumbling on the strings/frets.

Do you busk by just playing guitar? Or do you sing too?

Im Pitt bound. Got kind of fucked off in Cleveland trying to find best move to Pitt so said fuck it and started hitching. Junk trains suck sometimes. Meeting a friend there then im planning on jetting west on freight. Cool to crew up with some folks. See you if I make it before you head out. Hitching sucks in the pandemic, my perspective at least.

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 his 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.
