Hey STP, Im finally doin it. Been years of working and paying the rents trying to jam myself into the mold of what is expected of me, dreaming daily to just drop it all wander the earth by any means necessary be it hoppin freight, hitchin rides, sleepin rough, eating scraps. After years of killing myself for other people all i have to show for it is a lack of willingness to continue on this way, and well, enough flow to get me backpacking through se asia and india for a few months. Spending time with travellers has opened my eyes to the possibilities of actually living a content life on my own terms. Just the thought of not waking up to the oppressive tone of the alarm and spending the day wandering and exploring with no deadlines brings me such peace I know this is what i must do. The names Dustin and I am fuckin fed up

Hello Dustin! Fellow traveler-to-be myself. Welcome to STP! You're certainly in a great place for any kind of information you might need. Don't be afraid to reach out and ask questions! Good on you for breaking the mold. No one deserves to know you better than yourself! And as they say, fortune favors the bold!

Hey welcome to STP! And a great intro to btw. Lots of info here - do check out the destinations by region for the areas you are looking for as well as the equipment section. I know I've read of several people here traveling through the areas you are looking at. @MolotovMocktail

But also - if you are still around - we are having our big get together in mid-ish november at the Slabs (NIland CA) - there you can meet up with several other travelers. And there is a subforum just for this as well. :D

Welcome Dustin! I'm with you! I'm planning and working on giving everything up and travel by bike. Fed up with the Wisconsin winters along depressing weather. Working for nothing and paying illegal and unconstitutional taxes that does not benefit me at all. Tired of throwing rent money away when I can live in a tent for nothing! It's time to be free, life is too short! Good Luck!

    More Info

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
$10.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $10.00 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
    $10.00 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
    $10.00 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
    $10.00 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.
