I'm pretty good at survival. Hunt,fish,trap. Can make a fire without a lighter.lol. I'm selling everthing I own and just want a new adventure. Slab city. Oregon idk. But I'm up for anything. Looking for like minded people to travel with. Have a truck. But it may not make it the whole way.

Trying to sell my generator,dirtbike etc. To just roll out!

Sound like a smart man. Good advice. Thanks for that. And yeah I got the boots. The pack. Water filtration. (sawyer mini) ferrocerum rods. Tarp. 550 cord. Etc. Looking to live free.

Hope there's a lil ceasars near me that isn't already taken. Lol...

But thanks.

I have a dodge truck. Ram 1500. But it's for sale... Wilderness would be GREAT to me. And part time work here and there wouldn't kill me. But I just want to be a free spirit. Sick of being tied down. Lived here my whole life.

Nothing wrong with camping in my mind. Lol. As long as I can pack up and move on whenever I feel like it.

And yes my buddy works at lil ceasars. Know the workers take home the pizzas a lot. To feed there own families.

But yeah highwayman. I gotta find ways to make some money when my savings are gone. I won't have my cell phone or other luxuries.... But to put shelter over my ass I'm gonna be on my own there. Build or die. I do have 5 bic lighters in different spots of my pack. But that's for quick cig. 35 years old and I bet I got a lot To learn in my near future. But I've always had urge to go. I've been to every state but Maine,alaska and Hawaii.. But was in a rug (18 wheeler) gonna be different this time out. I'm sure

Try n make this short...

But I sold my 09 Ford and bought this 96 dodge on the cheap after divorce. Transmission came out same day. Put 2500$ in a warranted tranny. But it's constantly breaking and not real dependable... I also am disabled through a trucking company. So I get ssi. I did the over the road thing for 6 years. Hailed locally for 4. Just not my passion. I wish it was. But hated being in a 6x8 box day in day out. Feels like jail soon. And you really don't get to see much. Always a deadline. But am hoping the cdl will help me move from place to place. (truck stops). I just wanna live live gray man. Really think I will meet good people out there. Keeping my hopes up.

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
$150.00
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 his 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
    $150.00 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.
