Hitchhiking in my experience lately has been an absolute calamity in comparison to pre-COVID....

That also goes for gas station theatre acts... Very recently at a gas station I was asking someone for a ride and they ran as if I was a rabid raccoon.
We sell all kinds of other stuff in our Etsy store!

I've been trying to hitch north outa of nyc. No luck. I even took the metro north a couple stops up to get away from the city. And nothing. Can only stand on the off ramp for so long till u gotta go back to flying for beer/food money.
Where you trying to go? The whole New York City area is notorious for being shit to get out of. best bet is to probably take the Metro-North as far as you can, to the end of the line in the direction you're going. Maybe even come back, take the China bus to Boston or Albany, whichever one is closer to your destination

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 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
    $0.00 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 this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $0.00 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
    $0.00 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.
