I thought I would share this with you guys:

https://www.simplemost.com/amazon-deliver-tiny-house/

They say there has been talented smart people that would know how to turn intermodal containers into tiny houses and make them possible to live in with the right stuff. Amazon wants at least $40,000 to cover the container and the shipping fee. On the other hand, I don't think it's too bad to try to live in one that is completely empty and has no furnishings, right?!

I lived in one in Iraq for 10 months. I swore never again. LOL

Although these are probably insulated and don't come with a roommate. So that's a positive I suppose.

Also, it is basically a non-mobile mobile home.

I saw a Uhaul container of around 8 x 10, covered in an orange water proof shroud. The first thing I thought was, "I could live in that thing." But where could I get one??

im currently trying to save up some money for some land in the northwest, and i am going to try and build a shipping container dwelling. have to learn how to weld first tho.....

its fucking cheap, like $2000 per container. outfit the inside with a fram, drywall and insulation, an voila! house.

Get some solar and and a well to go along with it. thats true living.

Watch out world....I have plans....

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
    $70.75 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
    $70.75 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
    $70.75 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.

I read your story last month about working in Alaska. I got a job in Naknek this summer. Definitely can get how it felt like jail. I fear it's really going to feel that way with this virus. We can't go into town. I'm not very happy about that since it will limit my exploring. Yet I really need the opportunity right now. Anymore advice is much appreciated.
Anyone been to Thailand or know anything about Thailand? Going in September and have absolutely no plans yet, open to suggestions!
Cincy, somehow is full of kids last year or so, like it.
Last week i took some trains i ain't rode in a while. Sparks->elko->green river->cheyenne->denver->amarillo->belen
I did some really important tweaking of the navigation menu on StP today. It should be significantly easier for mobile users to get around :)
Anyone in Chicago?!? Just rolled into town, next stop Minneapolis
Hey all, peace from a mostly retired road dog and now sober husband and father. Spent my youth hitching and tramping around the west primarily, Durango, mesa verde, Quartzsite, Laramie,Lander also Cincinnati, Philly, Detroit, Alabama, florida, Washington etc. Mostly lurking, keeping up on news and thinking about future destinations. Thanks for reading
