Hopped all over the country... Time to get my feet wet! (1 Viewer)

Omaha, NE
Hey y’all, it has been quite some time since my last post.

I took the rails from Omaha to Manhattan back in 2015 and worked with some friends in Washington Heights for a bit, taking a job with the Javitz Center until 2018. I then moved to Sacramento by hitching the rails until 2019, working on myself and my didactic education. I learned a lot more of Latin and Greek for my personal interests and then took a job skip tracing for a small-cap company, I didn’t like the vibe of the job and moved on in 2020 just before the pandemic and ended up selling solar over the phone. I’ve decided to head back to NYC to meet up with some old contacts in August and I’ll be in Brooklyn starting around August 1st, if I can hop correctly haha. My mom lives in Auburndale, FL and picking up a sailing vessel around Orlando shouldn’t be too much of a hassle, but I’m looking for a fixer-upper that will need a bit of TLC. From Brooklyn I will be working until I have about $3k more saved up for a trip to FL, from there I’ll be looking for the right ship.

If you’re going to be in the NYC area around then, awesome, let’s meet up and plan something. I’d like to start sailing by the middle of 2022; destination, the Caribbean. I picked up some sailing experience last time I was in NYC and in Sacramento, so the time is right to pursue those goals again.

If you find yourself needing a couch to crash on while you’re in the east coast don’t hesitate to ask, and if you’re interested in aquatics and sailing, even better.

With love,
We sell all kinds of other stuff in our Etsy store!

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 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
    $0.00 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 this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $0.00 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
    $0.00 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.
