Hitchhiker and homeless laborer, checking in! (1 Viewer)


Apr 13, 2021
Probably on the East Coast, USA
Hey everyone!

I've been homeless in the US (mainly on the east coast) since 2009, and hitchhiking is my primary mode of travel full time. I work seasonally in constructions and carpentry, but my biggest passions are folk music (I play the balalaika) and exploring new places with my animal companions- Chalupa, the taco bell dumpster cat and Liberty, my stray alley dog. I'm sure I'll share pictures of them on here eventually, but if you've ever been on the r/vagabond subreddit last year you probably have met them. I used to moderate there before all the Huck drama and I posted some of my best homeless stories in threads there- My username on Reddit was u/nameslessandhomeless if anyone's interested.

Right now I'm bunkered down in a derelict and leaking RV recovering from medical injury, so keep me company! I look forward to reading all the cool stories and posts you fellow travelers put up!

Total amount

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $35.00 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
    $35.00 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 this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $35.00 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
    $35.00 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.
