I second Quartzite! It's been almost 20 years since I spent a winter there. Thousands of alt living people camped out in the desert. There's lot of good hiking around, KOFA area, Palm Canyon etc. Go vibe with the sagueros!

You're gonna be waiting a loooong time to cross via land until a covid vaccine is ready. You can fly now but still need to quarantine for two weeks.

But yeah the AZ desert is my happy place. I'm a hot n dry kinda guy!! I'm in British Columbia and hate the rain!! 😭

hello from Windsor, Ontario! welcome to the forums

subscribed to your youtube channel, that's a really nice off-grid setup you have! I really like that GMC bench, my dad would just fall in love with that.
I hope we can all cross the border safely again soon, but if you're in Canada this spring/summer, maybe we'll cross paths :)

Welcome, @Jillibean! One thing you could try is to qualify as an essential worker, if you can prove somehow that you are traveling to the US for some seasonal work reason and not just for tourism. See Travel Restrictions Fact Sheet | U.S. Embassy & Consulates in Canada.

To @plumgrainer - cool to see someone on here from Windsor! One of my best friends lives there. I was planning to travel across over there this summer/fall, though the corona restrictions kinda made me put it off till next year. Here's hoping it'll be better soon.

@ali oh, sweet! Ask your friend if they know a gwen lol. I vouch for Windsor as a great place to hang out in, hope we all can take off this spring. I was similarly planning on heading to BC before restrictions hit.

    More Info

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
$105.00
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
    $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.
