Gawd this irks me.
People who honk at campers, especially late night, or early morning hours.
In legal ppublic parking spaces.
I get up early for work in the morning, so it's not like it wakes me up.
And of course, road noise doesn't bother rubbertramps.
But it's the principle; essentially saying "we hate you for parking your home in our neighborhood,"
And of course they're gone before you can even react.
I feel like if they have a problem with me, say it to my face. Wish there was some way to react. Of course loved ones advise to ignore it, don't fight, etc. But that feels like laying down and taking it.
What do you guys think?

You might be right. Maybe its someone just trying to be a jerk....

But part of me thinks, it may have nothing to do with you. Maybe they're honking at another car or for some other reason.

I used to think that all the time. Like horns, and sirens and alarms and stuff were constantly going off around me. I seriously just thought people were screwing with me.... But it might just be the fact that when you live in a vehicle, you notice everything that nobody else does.... It just comes with the territory when your always parked on busy streets and in parking lots with alot of traffic...

I feel your pain tho. It used to drive me nuts. Find quieter places to park.

i think the levels of criminalization by opinion the homeless/homefree are getting right now is sad as fuck.
Here right now, 1 in 5 people in jail are homeless. 50% of homeless report being former foster youth.
Since Trump became president, i've tried really hard to avoid the news, but sometimes i'm tempted to read the local news, epsecially if it's about homelesssness, etc.. Then i read the comments; hate and virtial; people literally hate people for being homeless. It scares and saddens me.

I've had that pointed it out, but it's pretty freakin obvious it's directed at campers. there's a particular street nearby that like clockwork every morning you can count on the same asshole blaring his horn through the neighborhood.

Think about what that says about a persons mental state if they are angry at a person less fortunate than themselves.
I like to say (somewhat ironically) that they hate us for our freedoms ;)
They have to pay bills, rent, taxes, a mortgage, child support; then they see some free spirited hippies living off the land and off the grid; they're jealous.
I've heard people told by cops, "if I have to pay a mortgage, so should you." Wow.
Also I try and remember, "Don't scare the squares."
They don't understand, they don't know any better. ;)

Very well put, but makes it no less irritating when ppl act like children. It is sad the cage ppl live in.

that's where I get hung up, although I'm trying not to. I try really hard not to focus on the negativity, not let it bring me down, but to move forward in peace.

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
    $70.75 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
    $70.75 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
    $70.75 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.

I'mma cut to the chase: You don't call me what I consider to be a slur or insult, and I won't call you names.
You say I should love myself and have more self-confidence. You've got it all wrong. I love myself plenty, and I know for a fact that I am capable of doing incredible things, both good and evil.
You say fake it till you make it. I'm too honest for that. Instead I will have faith in myself, and act accordingly.
These new rules for the train riding forum are ridiculous. I've been on here for 5 ish years.

I read your story last month about working in Alaska. I got a job in Naknek this summer. Definitely can get how it felt like jail. I fear it's really going to feel that way with this virus. We can't go into town. I'm not very happy about that since it will limit my exploring. Yet I really need the opportunity right now. Anymore advice is much appreciated.
Anyone been to Thailand or know anything about Thailand? Going in September and have absolutely no plans yet, open to suggestions!
Cincy, somehow is full of kids last year or so, like it.
Last week i took some trains i ain't rode in a while. Sparks->elko->green river->cheyenne->denver->amarillo->belen
I did some really important tweaking of the navigation menu on StP today. It should be significantly easier for mobile users to get around :)
Anyone in Chicago?!? Just rolled into town, next stop Minneapolis
