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!

Oh yeah fuck I forgot the Southern Hemisphere is backwards as far as seasons go.

Well not like backwards but a reflection of the northern hemisphere. That’s so weird to me.
it's an easy thing to forget and it's oddly amusing, the patterns of the planet

If I can be of any help ( not sure how) I’d do what I could
Just trying to make connections to other travelers

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

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
$15.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $15.00 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
    $15.00 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 his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $15.00 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
    $15.00 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.

I've made some layout adjustments to featured content threads. They should look much prettier on mobile devices, although I'm still working on how the main featured page displays on those devices...
Due to a software bug, I've had to disable the ability for users to delete their accounts until a fix is released (hopefully no more than a few days).
You ever look back and kind of wonder even if you wanted to try to fix things... How you even begin to apologise for Fucking up someone's life??
The self defense group is going so far so great!
Three years of loving and caring, down the backed up toilet.
I feel uncomfortable with all of the transphobic micro-aggressions being thrown around here lately. I also feel uncomfortable standing up in defense of trans folk, me included, in fear of developing discourse without the consequence of proper accountability.

I'm in NYC. What's good? Anyone wanna kick it? Where can I camp without getting hassled?
Roof vent is installed, fixed the side mirror, mounted the solar panels and ran the wires into the van. Currently working on putting in the floor. It's a lot but I'm making steady progress.
Anyone is Portland wanna kick it for a night and get motey'd up?!
