I'm Alex, 21, I'm not comfortable giving my home area but I will say it's the upper Appalachians, I spend 2/3rds of my year in the Adirondacks. I'm probably not the typical squatter as I spend my free time living off the land with what I can find for critters, wild edibles, and drinking water straight from creeks and whatnot (about a decade now and haven't gotten sick) Once in a blue moon I've slept in abandoned foundations or a decrepit house, but mostly I'm in shelters I make, caves, or out under the night sky, and almost all cases, a nice fire crackling nearby. I'm hoping to find similar folks to myself in this community who like wandering in the woods, bushcraft, who really appreciate the natural world. Currently, due to college, this is more of a hobby now rather than something more akin to a lifestyle in high school, probably will head West at some point, don't know where, probably at least the Rockies if not further, I will say I'm not cool enough to walk all the way there.

In terms of what I can give to the community if anyone needs tips on camping of any kind (like stealth camping), survival/wilderness living skills feel free to message me here or on my Instagram assuming I put it on my profile correctly if you can't find it just message me and I'll give ya it.

I've got a fair bit of stories from the Appalachians and the Adirondacks to the Savvanahs of Kenya, just need to figure out the proper place to post them, and whether or not people even want to hear them.

Have a great day!

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
    $60.00 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
    $60.00 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
    $60.00 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.
