I have the best luck with hitchhiking in the hottest part of the day. Of course I mean if you are going through the desert fuck that though. I just walk as usual and don't fly a sign or stick out my thumb. Just cruise along looking pitiful. Also I know it sounds superstitious as fuck, but every time I've ever helped a turtle across the road I got a ride within 10 minutes. As far as sleeping I just stay under bridges. Just plan a route and look up resources in each city along the way. Sundays are always hard cause libraries and day shelters and shit like that are closed. Thats another thing. You can follow the homebums around from the library to find the handouts. Good luck. Use your head and remember when you are passed out drunk or sleeping you are fair game to anyone. I've woke up in a hospital with both eyes beat shut and no idea how it happened.

Yeah, I'm always real careful about where I sleep, especially when traveling alone!

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $25.00 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
    $25.00 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
    $25.00 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
    $25.00 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.
