Hi everybody, I'm Bozorg, I'm a semi retiree from the road looking for destination ideas and roadstories. I hitched and tramped around the west from 2000-2009 and wish this site existed when I was 19. They called me Alcoholic Jr. back then, I was a mess for years and am now sober 7 yrs. 1st week on the road hitching from an abusive family in Pontiac MI, I wound up drinking with some homebums in Grand Junction. My gullible ass believed them when they said Datura is just like smoking weed. Wound up beat and rolled, worst trip of my life. Hospitalized for a bit, then put on a bus to Durango with nothing but a pair of cords, sandals and the shirt on my back. Seen a lot better days since, and been to a lot of better places. Thanks for reading and safe travels!
