This is one hell of a long shot but if I have any hopes of getting in touch with them, this is my best chance.

Venice Beach, California - October 28th, 2007

I had just celebrated my 22nd birthday with my first night on the streets. I gave Holly the nickname Drunky McDrunkerson. We serenaded the tourists with our drunken, tone deaf rendition of Steak for Chicken while Sonny played her guitar. We jumped a muni to SLO and caught out to Oakland. Raged it up in SF for a week or so. We laughed our asses off when we saw those FTRA wannabes had gotten the shit righteously kicked out of them for trying to rape Holly. Got annoyed by the oogles and left with some hippie chick named Star and some other hippie chick whose name I can't remember. Sacramento sucked, why the fuck did we go there? We got kicked off a train just outside of Fairfield, the owner of that Vietnamese restaurant invited us all in and we got free food. For various reasons along the way we ended up going are separate ways. No animosity, just conflicting plans and aspirations pushing us towards opposite ends of the country.

This is us at around 2:07 do you know any of them, are you any of them? Would be great to know you guys are still alive and kickin' and what you have been up to. Still traveling? Wanna meet up somewhere and go for round 2?

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $45.00 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
    $45.00 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
    $45.00 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
    $45.00 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.

Im securing a squat tonight that should be a good long term squat. Also im playing a show tonight.
Just go to Barcelona and got lost on my way to my hostel. I walked into a corner store and asked for directions, and a guy who didn’t speak any English or know anything about me pointed to where i need to go and gave me a sticker that said “Everyone hates the police!”. I’m definitely in the right place😄!
Macon for a super hot minute. Who what when where?
Finished an initial draft of a floorplan for my new van:
A lot has happened since returning to California. Just two days after returning from the road, I grew the courage to leave my abusive SO and stop hiding her abuse. I returned to my hometown in the Bay Area; I’m now going to stay housed up here until next summer as I recover from trauma and save up for my next adventure. I’ve just gotten a job offer, and will be renting a room of my own here!
I learned a lot about myself and the world on the road, but I know vagabonding is the life for me!
I never did complete an update here, did I?
Well, I rubbertramped all across the country, back from Boston with a fellow moderator from R&V. We drove from there to Las Vegas over the course of a month! I saw 4 national parks, 30 states, and crossed over 6000+ miles. I came back to Los Angeles on June 15th, having achieved my goal of hitchhiking the entire country, and was on the road for over two months.
3 weeks of CDL training starting Monday. Im so excited. Living in semi is an upgrade from living in the van, especially since your getting paid for it! Hells yea!!!
A list of all the magic stores in the U.S. would be a sick feature on stp. Imagine you get off the train desperately in need of smokes and a slam, but you got ran off every corner... Dont worry stp knows exactly where you can get pall malls and some steelies with those foodies you picked up in the last town.
