So if anyone else is in Ireland this summer there are a couple different busking contests and/or festivals.

one pays €3000.00

there is another one in Letterkenny:

Galway is a good busking place, although there is a general crackdown on busking, and travellers in Ireland in general lately. https://www.facebook.com/GalwayBuskersCommunity/

It really is interesting to me how everywhere it seems like they are trying to get rid of people like us. Maybe I'm being myopic, but seriously...

Coooool thanks ! I don't know if I'll be in Ireland this summer but it's definitely a good thing to know !
As for busking, I found USA very easy. Don't ever come to France it's so shit. My best session was 15euros for one hour for what I consider a good quality performance (it's actually the best I've ever played in the street, and it would pay WAY more in canada for example)

When you're going on another trip but for whatever reason you're not leaving for like a month, how do you pass the time while waiting?

It’s fucked but we’re getting it from both the left and right these days; partly out of sheer contrarianism I’ve started learning a lot about my Jewish heritage in the past few years,& think if I go on the road again may plan on visiting different communities... Absolutely fuck skit and their full-on alt-right talking points.
Oh the pain! So much pain. Lol boo boo though.

Taking time off from rural AZ, back in the city. Towed car, but cheap hostel room in LV. Oh well, will get to check out some car auctions soon.
