Just a heads up there is a typical storm hitting the south. Just be safe out there. It's hitting Louisiana and Florida maybe parts of east Texas. Just stay safe! Been in one not fun

Maybe off topic here, but one time i was running from superstorm Sandy in pennsylvania, ended up hitchhiking all the way up to happy valley goose bay Labrador to avoid it. This was when they first completed the translabrador highway. I still got rained on but i avoided those gusts. Tropical storms cant get that far north, but there were some gnarly gale winds that ripped my tent in my time in Newfoundland.

Couple years ago while hitching i was dropped off at an intersecrion in the middle of nowhere between Gillette Wy and Douglas Wy when i got caught in a freak storm. Used my tent as a tarp. Tore it up, lost motivation and bitched out of thst trip. Sorry off topic ish

I'm in a lightly used park by my job and girl at the moment but the interstate is right in front of where I work.
It's pretty good except the drug addicts who come through here and there so I tear down camp and stash everything at work during the day unless I'm sleeping there

    $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.

    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.

    $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 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 :)
Anyone in Chicago?!? Just rolled into town, next stop Minneapolis

Thanks for reading
