Well, this is Mud Season in the Champlain Valley, so it's not good traveling weather, yet. Presently though, I do have to make a run into NY...

Spent the winter hiding from the snow in the desert, now I'm in northern Michigan waiting a week for my job to start on Drummond Island. There's still a bunch of snow up here, but will be worth it once it warms up! Stoked to live on an island for the summer!

Yeah! I’m gonna make my way there in mid-May for a lil two-day folk punk festival out in the woods of Klamath County, OR! I can send you deets if you’re a fan of camping and acoustic music you can dance to!

Also, how you plan on/end up traveling is kinda the big question that will lead to more valuable resources that aren’t just vague “just kinda go for it” pieces of advice. StP has a whole slew of threads and resources for any kind of diy traveling you can think of, from their Gear section, to collections of threads specifically about hitch hiking, van living, or train activities. I’d peruse those threads filed under “Getting There” on the main page to give you a better idea about how you might like to get to Seattle!

Welcome to StP!

Welcome to StP!
The “ how” is determined!
On a bus now heading to Portland Maine- Boston - then West to Seattle ..
It’s my purpose -and why-what-who
In Seattle that I’m divining
Been awhile since I’ve been out here -
Not really stoked about shelters or the stats on the street —
Just not sure how other trampers make this work

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 hate my fucking back. A combination of bank bullshit and now a strained or sprained back had kept me held up in Pennsylvania. Have a place to stay, but I'm pissed at life trying to keep me off the road!
Fuck it, I'm getting a bottle

I'mma cut to the chase: You don't call me what I consider to be a slur or insult, and I won't call you names.
You say I should love myself and have more self-confidence. You've got it all wrong. I love myself plenty, and I know for a fact that I am capable of doing incredible things, both good and evil.
You say fake it till you make it. I'm too honest for that. Instead I will have faith in myself, and act accordingly.
These new rules for the train riding forum are ridiculous. I've been on here for 5 ish years.

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 :)
