hey everyone, this is my introduction.

i'm Loke, just got to the states from sweden where i grew up. have been moving around all my life, been homeless for 3 years, busking alot around europe. i play banjo and guitars. last year i've been living in south of sweden working, living in an basement office. finally made it to the states (found a cheap ticket to oakland) to track down an old friend of mine who married a woman a couple of years ago and supposably moved down to new orleans. so thats where i'm going, soon as possible. i don't have much but a sleeping bag and a guitar, so i'll be sleeping outside and hichhiking or going by rails or whatever gets me there cheap or free. just found a ride to LA so i'll be there from tomorrow evening.

be happy to meet up and do whatever if you feel like travel the same way

best

Hey - welcome to STP! I admin at a facebook site too and there seems to be a flow of travelers to NOLA atm (well of course Halloween is coming up too). I hope you run into your friends. If you have info on them and, even better, pics - you can post them in our subforum - missed connections. Good luck and welcome to the US too. Enjoy :)

Sweden! I have a weird obsession with Sweden, but no desire to visit. Good luck tracking down your mate, Nola is bigger than it seems at first, but if you have an address, I think you got it mate.

Ahh. Camping out next to the Interstate in the NM desert. With Cinnabons, a giant Coke, and $20 kicked down to me today. I got 4 rides which got me 100 miles. And they were all amazing people... one guy gave me a business card which was about spreading love and that was so fucking positive. Then I got picked up by a really old Mexican couple. I am still so homesick, yet so happy and exhilarated
