Salutations! I just wanted to introduce myself. I'm Jacob, but you can call me whatever makes you feel comfortable. I've been visiting this site for a while now, along with other online forums having to do with travel. For over five years now, I've had an itch to travel. I've done it short term before but I have been looking to leave on a more permanent basis.

This month, I've finally decided to do it. I turn 25 on the 11th, and recently just finished my trade at Job Corps. I'm planning on packing up and making my way to Slab City for the Jamboree in October. Any well wishes, tips or tricks of the road would be appreciated.

Hi there - welcome to STP - I deleted the news and blogs from your title. And good on you for hitting the jamboree - it is fun - made it out there last year. Would love to get out there this year and without such a tight schedule (my work schedule). Hope to meet you there. :)

hello Jacob! Im new here myself but have a little experience traveling. my personal 2 cents is probably something like.. find your own freedom, and only live with your guidlines of life. Anyways i am also interested in the Jamboree so maybe ill see both of you there!

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
    $90.75 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
    $90.75 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.

I'mma cut to the chase: You don't call me what I consider to be a slur or insult, and I won't call you names.
You say I should love myself and have more self-confidence. You've got it all wrong. I love myself plenty, and I know for a fact that I am capable of doing incredible things, both good and evil.
You say fake it till you make it. I'm too honest for that. Instead I will have faith in myself, and act accordingly.
These new rules for the train riding forum are ridiculous. I've been on here for 5 ish years.

I read your story last month about working in Alaska. I got a job in Naknek this summer. Definitely can get how it felt like jail. I fear it's really going to feel that way with this virus. We can't go into town. I'm not very happy about that since it will limit my exploring. Yet I really need the opportunity right now. Anymore advice is much appreciated.
