I'm in the process of hitching the entire Alaska highway from South to North and back again, funding myself with donations, odd-jobs and scoring free shit.

This is the first of my video series. I'll post more in this thread as I upload them. More coming soon, I just have to work on editing the footage.

@Synthect - you're in this one!

That was a great video! Thanks for sharing. Will you be up there long enough to have it get dark enough to see the Northern Lights? ~ peace

I don't know. It was just the solstice, so the sun is up most of the time with a few hours of perpetual twilight in between. Probably won't see night for awhile.

Yo I'm literally in Seward right now. I climbed to the bowl of Marathon yesterday (gone up the Race Trail three times now) and was in Homer last weekend.

Its a whole lot greener now.

That is epic dude!! My legs felt like fucking jelly after that hike. There was a point near the end when I was just crawling haha. We should try hang out before the summer's over, what are you up to in Seward??

That hike is pretty great. :)
Just working a $10/hr job at a lodge and exploring during my time off. I recently bought a drone so I've been playing with that. Are you still on the peninsula?

No, I've been hosted around Palmer, but I'll be heading north to finish my quest. After I do that, which should be about a two week venture, I'm not sure what I'll be doing. Wouldn't be unlikely that I'll head back down to that way though.

Nice! Looks like I'll be heading out mid September and will likely be exploring Alaska before it gets too winter for my liking. I'll keeo an eye on your updates and let me know if you head down to Seward before I leave.

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
$90.00
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
    $90.00 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
    $90.00 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.
