HI tall

Just curious about folks general experience . . . How long do people stay out? When so you typically travel? And where do you enjoy most during each season?

I travel everyday. I go south in the winter and north in the summer. I like to be in good weather personally and then just explore wherever I'm at. Currently, I'm in Ocala National Forest.

Depends, past few years Ive almost always been camping. I travel slow, usually just moving once a season, faster rate usually means hopping towns every day or two, week or two

Paid rent for 1 year in the last 8
Work on average 4-6 months a year

I personally have a difficult time staying anywhere for longer than two weeks..
I've tried wintering for a few months the last couple years, but that's always been spotty. This third year into my travels, I made the decision to winter for at least 4 months, to try and handle some business that means necessary to hunker down for longer than I usually like.. but yeah, I'm off the road for a good chunk of mid november- late April; is what I've come to prefer. Just because being stuck in the cold fucking sucks, but so does being stuck somewhere you dislike, just because it is warm.

As long as it takes. This stretch will be around 25 days. Biking . Next will be maybe week or two weeks. Or might be 6months but not biking. Or maybe.
Hmm electric. I could never afford it but I would love the setup. I think get kicked outta squats or ran outta dumpster area with electric bike would be halirious . Hard to say tho how long this stretch will be if I found work and said fuck the going back to where ever.
I'll like to go for the six months stretch . Honestly if I have too .I'll break rules earn and save and go all one year travel. I mean travel. Just America but I won't stop if I had a choice.
100 days and 2 off in a motel sounds nice. Who am I kidding. One day motel.the next lots of beer.100 more days of travel.

    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 his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.

    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.
