I have tramped in key west and I got extremely lucky that I was not arrested for flying a sign.i did for 45 mins and made about $200. I went north to homestead FL at that time and took on a job in the everglades. I was involved in altercation and did some months in the federal system and this lead me to be housed at the Monroe county detention center where I was able to talk to other travelers passing through who got caught up and also of course the local homeless who frequent the jail. They call themselves "snappers". From hearing their stories key west does not play around and they will harass the homeless and misfits doing bum stuff. They want key west to have the image of a resort town. I have known traveler who do fine in key West however most these are following the hobo code and working and being a camillian. (However it's spelled lol).... Be extremely careful and viligiant in this area.

The word is chameleon - like an invisible homeless person. It's how I live.

I have been down once to Key West, but it was 15 years ago. Has it really changed that much??

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $20.00 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
    $20.00 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
    $20.00 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
    $20.00 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.

Hey all, been a while, a lot has happened! A little update, my bf got charged with domestic & my shoulder is sprained: things are in the works right now and my plan is to get an RV & GTF outta here!
If I had one more freight hop left in me, maybe two, I would take an NS 27A (auto rack) to Macon, get shuttled to Warner Robins to visit my friends since I haven't seen them for quite a while, then head back to Macon. Next up, maybe I would stay put under a skirted piggyback heading southbound to Jacksonville just to explore the Macon/Valdosta districts.
