Leo Californya here..
Just landed in Ukiah, California after living in the middle of the Mendocino National Forest for ten days. Lake Pilsbury is nice this time of year by the way. I have to say, being amongst other humans, and so many at that, is a bit surreal. Places like walmart are usually other worldly in any case. Not sure if I want to stay in civilization for a bit longer or head back out to nature (where it's normal). If it weren't for the flat battery and blown tire I'm not sure I would have even come back at all. I will say though, the Little Caesars pizza I ate hit my taste buds so forcefully I thought I might lose my $hit.

That and it was nice to experience the Internet again. This site is pretty awesome

Ten days out there? That's pretty awesome.
I'm planning on hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, just from WA to OR though. Not interested in Cali's desert.
I'm homeless and have nothing better to do.
But I can say that I enjoy nature much much more than the city.
Safe travels

Right on! I'm "homeless" as well, at least I have my truck and dog though. And I am totally preparing for the PCT too! When I feel ready I will be selling the truck and hitting the trail. Don't pass on Cali though my friend, it isn't all desert and there is so much beauty here. If you time it right, the desert is a perfect place to be in winter months. I'm hoping to be ready to start at the Mexico/Cali border next jan or feb, then take my time all the way up to Canada. When do you think you'll be gettin started?

I would love love love to rubbertramp (if I knew how to freaking drive)
That's so cool, do you have a canopy on the back or a camper kind of setup?
I'm trying to hike the PCT pretty soon, like next month xP
Just wanna get some new and improved gear before I go, especially boots.
What are you up to? Where to next?

You can't drive? What'r you a monk ;p it's nothing special, just a Dodge Durango. It's small, sneaky, cozy, and ballzy. The best part is its 4wheel drive, so I can get deep in the hills with ease. I'm heading north. Making my way to Eureka, ca. Not really sure what I wanna do then. The road is to me as a river to a fish; enormous, controlling, mysterious, and sustaining. Any recommendations? How bout you, what'r you up to 'sides prepping for the PCT?

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$25.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $25.00 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
    $25.00 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.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $25.00 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
    $25.00 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.
