Hi all, green thumbed greenhorn here (1 Viewer)


May 12, 2020
Hi all, my name is Tate. I dig books, metal working, and forestry. Right now I'm traveling for seasonal conservation work but I hope to embark on some leisurely cross country expeditions sometime in the future. While I've undertaken a couple of assisted trips, I'm still a big rail novice and still quite inept at identifying rides and their destinations. I oftentimes find myself in awe at the logistical prowess some of you regulars command. I'll be seeing ya'll out there.

Hello, and welcome!
I always appreciate a green thumb.. luckily I've been able to hone in on my skills in regards to that through more travel! I'm sure it will be the same for you. Understanding train yards, and whatnot can be pretty technical. Though, don't get too intimidated. I've met plenty of long time travellers that have never used a scanner, and don't know all of the terms for routes, but know enough by experience that they can manage to get around well enough without getting caught. Just takes practice!! Good luck out there*

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
    $105.00 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.
