Matt Hatter

My name is Matt, I'm 24 years old. I started traveling full time a little over a year ago. At this point I'm addicted. any time I settle down for too long I start to get that "itch" everyone talks about. Why fight it?
I mostly hitchhike. It's simple and gets you where you need to go. I've hopped trains before, not many though, just 3. and 2 of those were un-planned, spur-of-the-moment type rides. Maybe when it get warmer I'll make a bigger habit out of it....

I don't know what else to say really, so here's some random facts I can't figure out how to place in a coherent paragraph:

I drink, but I don't get drunk unless I'm around a ton of other people getting drunk. I keep my alcohol social (usually).

I don't do drugs, but I won't judge you if you do. If you think you have a problem with drugs, I'll let you beat yourself up rather than doing it myself.. Unless you're around me and it becomes a problem... The last thing I want is some crackhead getting overly paranoid on me for no reason, getting all agro, then punching me in the face and running away with my stuff (which has happened; didn't like it)...

I do smoke a lot of weed though, always on the lookout for it on the road!

I'm a pretty laid back person, I don't get agro randomly or lash out on people for no reason. If you're cool around me then I'm gonna be really cool around you.

Sometimes my brain shuts down and I refuse to socialize, I might go days without saying anything to anyone; doesn't happen often, but if I'm gonna roaddog it with someone I guess we should know the worst about each other... Just get over it, sit back, and smoke my weed with me.

I've dabbled in learning how to play guitar, but by the time I was really getting in to it, it broke... Rather than buying a new guitar, I bought a new banjo instead. So now I'm trying to learn the banjo, and I really like it! A very nice *twangy* sound. Don't ask me to play anything for you though... Just because I have a banjo doesn't mean I'm good at it....

I once ate a dozen, fresh out the oven, bakery sized muffins. I'm talking blueberry, strawberry, banana nut, etc... It seemed like a good idea at the time. Some things I don't like to think about........

I can't think of anything else to say, so just send me a message to say hi.

I'm going to be in Denver around the 7th or 8th. From there I'm hoping to be able to make it to Blacksheep in SoCal. Could use some company along the way!
We sell all kinds of other stuff in our Etsy store!

I do not know wagon wheel. I mean.. I know the song... I just don't know how to play it. But if it means getting along with someone, then I'll start practicing right away!

Its not like I would be pretentious and be like "Oh, Hi MattHatter. Ahahaha Muffy here says you DONT KNOW W. Wheel. A Har har har!"

I once ate over 3 1/2# of steak in a single sitting.

No salt or pepper, just delicious.

Spur of the moment train rides are the best.

Hey! Welcome to StP. From your description you sound like the male version of me. If you're a muffin fan, you're gonna want to try a 'fruit explosion' if you ever come across a Tim Hortons. They are life changing.

    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
    $60.00 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
    $60.00 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
    $60.00 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.
