longtime lurker firsttime poster : ) i'm originally from Philadelphia born and raised, but i've spent about 15 years in various cities around the world including 4 consecutive years backpacking and working abroad on a WHV in New Zealand, France, England and Wales when i was in my mid-20s. i went to college in NYC and lived all over the city for several years so i have lots of experience with the ins and outs of the subway system and Brooklyn and Manhattan in particular. i was up in the Hudson Valley working at a glass studio and a grow farm for awhile and came back to Philly due to my dad being in hospice. i work from my laptop and i've been thinking seriously about saving some money and just camping or squatting this summer while the weather is warm. i'm pretty familiar with Philly but hoping to meet some folks who might show me some good spots to pitch a tent where i won't get hassled by the oink squad, also i've been interested for some time in trainhopping (especially for when things get colder) and would be super happy to make some contacts with experienced rail ppl who might show me around a yard or something...i have a pretty diverse skillset and can usually offer something in return whether it's city advice or something technology related or etc. thanks for reading!
