Hi, guys My names camon, I'm a 26 year old combat veteran. I have a lot of interests and hobbies, but the biggest two is traveling and writing. I am from a small lobster town in Maine, and have not spent over a year here since I was 17. I am just now striking out on a trip backpacking across the country adding more and more stops to visit/meet people along the way, the secondary goal to this journey is to finish my book that im writing. This book is a compilation of stories (mostly shenanigans) throughout my travels, both as a civilian and a soldier.

Quick disclaimer, the least favorite topic i have to discuss is politics. I am very open minded and accept about 98% of peoples views, actually learning from them in most cases. So if you cant be open minded when discussing it thats the one topic i ask you not to get me into haha.

In my non traveling time, i have many interests so I'm just gonna throw them up here:
Gaming, Reading, Cooking, Drawing, Tattooing, Digital media creation, sports, hunting, survival, writing, Music, camping, anything for an adrenaline rush, photography, spirituality (across the board, but i have a focused interest in wicca/paganism/druidery etc.) the art of storytelling, especially around the fire. the list goes on, but i think you got the jist.
 
We sell all kinds of other stuff in our Etsy store!

    More Info

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
$150.00
Goal
$100.00

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
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    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
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    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
    $150.00 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.
