Heyya! I'm stuck in the midwest until a couple days before Halloween because I'm not about to travel with these temporary braces, and that's when I get these suckers off, and due to unforeseen circumstances I've gotta hightail it outta michigan after that. My companion is no longer able to travel with me and is pushing me to leave and come back with stories for him to hear instead of rotting in the Toledo area by myself with nothing to do. I'm extremely new to the travelling lifestyle and am hoping to meet stp people and make some new friends along the way!

Are ya hitching, rubber tramping? How ya traveling? ... Just before Halloween, tough - lots of folks roll into New Orleans for Halloween - tight timeline, probably not make it... Sad, it's a sight!!

Otherwise, tons on the group heading to Slabs (south cali) for the group Jamboree... Another possible meet & greet opportunity for finding road dawgs & stretching the travellers legs...

How ya rolling becomes the all important mediator in juggling timeframe... :)

(Never having done it myself) I recommend Against train-hopping solo style, for the inexperienced traveller.

I'm still not entirely sure on that one, to be honest. We've always just hoofed it everywhere or had extreme luck and managed to have a friend heading wherever we were wanting to go so we'd hop in with them, it'd probably be rubber tramping though honestly, I'm getting my wheels fixed up soon so hopefully that all goes well ahh

random quesition, but do you know natasha bancroft? lives in east lansing... old travel buddy

anyways, i forgot did you say you were coming to the jambo? good opportunity to meet some other travelers and find people to travel with. even if you have to take a bus out here, i'd say you have about an 80% chance of finding someone to travel with and/or a ride to your next destination...

I feel like I've definitely heard the name before and I think she's mutual friends with some of my friends on Facebook. I also have a tendancy to say hello to everyone and anyone so maybe that's it lmao

As far as jambo goes. It's absolutely 100 percent on my wanting to do list. And I should definitely be able to make it. I'm just terrified of being a stranded solo out in cali. I'm planning on being there. Even if it means I gotta greyhound it out there, it's worth it haha

I'm at the end of my rope. I can't stay here anymore, but I'm too scared to face the winter alone. I think this couch might just be my deathbed.

The canaries are a catastrophic area since yesterday, global warming ain't gonna pass tommorow, i'm scared of the fucking ocean in general, let alone fucking tsunamis and shit, and even if i'd stay off the beaches, the rains are so heavy that the trip seems pointless, someone kick me while i'm down
Fuck this shit, 3 months of preparing for a trip to the Canaries just went down the drain, my guitaritst bailed out of the idea to start a job and a "steady life", my bestie is getting all weird and i don't think she wants to go.
i was already preparing for going solo when suddenly life (fucking Shell and coal miners!!!) was all like "nooo of course you don't want to go"
