So a little while ago I finished up a job quit another job paid off the last of my debts and then buggered off to Mexico to stay with my dad for a bit. At present I'm still in Mexico, where everything's tortillas and cheap tequila, it's magical. But I am going to have to get back to real life in a little bit and act like an adult/ productive member of American society. Except I don't wanna.

I really want to travel, like lots. To throw a dart at a globe lets say the American South; Atlanta, New Orleans, Etc. The big caveat is that I am destitute and I really don't want to sign a 10 month lease. To which I turn to you lot and seek your wisdom, how can I do this without starving in a gutter? I don't know If I'm barking up the wrong tree or something but I also don't know how else to pursue this idea.

I have handfuls of random skill sets and a work ethic I just would appreciate some direction for this endeavor.

Work some seasonal stuff like an alaskan fish processor or wildland firefighting.

Take that money and go back to your Dad's place in Mexico and plot your next move.

If that doesn't work buy some nice smelling coconut suntan oil and rub down tourists on the beach. Sooner or later one of 'em will take you home;)

actually I am going for an interview for an alaska job but as a fish monger I can tell you that the season just ended so even if the guy likes my gumption that payout is nearly year down the road.

Too late for you to get in on firefighting too, but there is seasonal work out there. The cash you make will go far in Mexico and further south.

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.
